GameChat – Twins @ Indians, 6:05pm

Ok, I kind of wish I was going to be able to see this game tonight but yeah, all that stuff is finally coming due and I won’t be around – deadline day…  Sorry for the late post but I still squeaked in before game start right?

OK I’m going to be honest here, I was at a bar from about 3:30 until after the Twins game finished, so I can’t say I’m real clear on what happened. But I saw Joe Mauer hit a double and I saw Brian Dozier go yard. It also seemed like every time I looked up at the TV, Sam Deduno was striking someone out.

Yet, it also seemed like every time I looked at the TV, the Indians had a bigger lead, so obviously I didn’t see everything that was going on.

Ah well, Saturday will be better, right? – JC
