TWINS FIRST WALK OFF VICTORY IN TARGET FIELD!!  And who would have guessed it would be a walkoff Wild Pitch?  How do you score that anyway??  I honestly have no clue!   But it does create a slight dilema for those of us in the chatroom.  Who do you pick for BOD when the pitcher gets the first Twins complete game of the season but the win belongs to a single player in the 9th inning???  So, we go with CO-BOD’s for Nick Blackburn and JJ Hotty..err Hardy and we save the pastries for ourselves to celebrate!
