Where do you homos stand???

Let's get some conversation rolling on the Vikes, knowing that a few of us are going back to AZ to watch the shitshow in December. If/when that homo Favre signs with the Vikes, how many of you ass clowns are with me on hating the Vikes? I've grown up hating that fucker and consider him in the same class as punto when it comes to foosball. I can't see myself rooting for his gay ass, throwing 3 picks a game, and the Vikes trying to comeback in the last 2 minutes of every game. Just my opinion but fuck Favre, bring back Fran Tarkenton or Warren Moon.

It's Gonna Take More Than The D.L.

The Twins thought they had their Punto problems solved by putting him on the DL, unfortunately he's a crafty little fucker and still is finding ways to help the Twins lose games. It didn't take long for him to have an impact in the game yesterday, as you can clearly see him doing his best to interfere with Mauer trying to make a catch near the Twins dugout. The ball dropped and the next pitch was hit over the fence. Punto - 1 Twins - 0. Somebody just needs to break both his legs or shoot him, get it over with so we can move on.

For Those Who Were Sleeping or Drunk

You missed quite a game last night. Ole Gardy was up to his usual tricks and tried everything in his power to get a loss, but the Mariner's left fielder was up to the challenge and made sure to get the Twins a 10 inning win to kick off a big road trip. The bullpen continued it's impressive run by throwing four scoreless innings and the only hit given up was a doinker that Gomez misread and probably should've caught. Forgive him, he's dumb. Liriano also probably saved his spot in the rotation by pitching a solid 6 innings. Gardy did try a suicide squeeze in the 10th inning. Good in theory, but probably not the best idea with Tolbert at the plate. Also they might wanna change the sign for the squeeze as the Mexican-Chinese manager from the Mariners called for a pitchout and hung Mauer out to dry. This isn't as much fun being positive. Fuck it, I'm sure I can find something to bitch about. Oh yeah, here's 3 things that should never happen in any game, yet they all occured last night...

1. Brian Buscher starts a game. With Punto out, he's quickly becoming the new Punto. He doesn't seem to have control over Gardy like Punto does, but anytime this clown is in the lineup it's depressing. I say send him down and call up Todd Kalpakof. I hear he's hitting almost .300 again this year, also plays SS like a young Ron Coomer.

2. Sacrifice bunt with Span. This one probably caught the fearless leader off guard. Who would have thought that Gomez or Casilla would get on base, let alone both of them. Yet that's exactly what happened last night in the 3rd inning. Both of the above mentioned re re's beat out infield hits, bringing Span up with nobody out. Now if Casilla, Tolbert, or really anybody except Mauer is hitting behind Span, ok I can understand the bunt. Chances are you're going to need a sacrifice fly or wild pitch to get a run in that situation. With the lineup the way it is, let your leadoff hitter, who is batting over .300, swing away. Over his career, Span has hit into 6 double plays (less than 1% of his AB's) so you can pretty much take that out of the equation. Now the worst you're looking at is Mauer coming up with runners on 1st and 2nd and 1 out. Of course he's prone to hitting into the routine 4-6-3, but he's also just as likely to hit a gapper and knock in both runs.

3. Try to steal second with 2 outs and Mauer at the plate. Again, Mauer has a slugging percentage of .833 and is extremely likely to deliver an extra base hit. Unless Ricky Henderson is at first and Santiago Casilla (look it up, he's real, that's him at the top of the post. also, he's pitched over 100 games and never caught anybody stealing or picked anybody off) is pitching, it just isn't worth it.

One other thing, since when do the Twins play Saturday afternoon games every damn week? Thanks once again to Fox's "Nationally Televised Games" I won't be tuning in today, but I'll definitely be drinking so that should be fun. Oh yeah, if you haven't seen the Hangover yet, do it as soon as possible, it's good.

Can you DH for an outfielder?

It's been too long since someone has posted something about the Twins, so I thought I would take it upon myself to post something. Here it is: different day, same song. Carlos Gomez and Delmon Young are the worst hitters in the major leagues. Seriously, I'm pretty sure they would strike out if they were "hitting" off a tee. Good god. Not only do they strike out constantly, they do it on 3 pitches that usually aren't even close. I am all for getting up there and taking your hacks, but jesus christ learn to take a pitch once in awhile. I couldn't care less about Gomez's defense. Yeah, it's great he makes some clutch catches, but it wouldn't be such a big deal if he would drive in a few runs to extend a lead. I am not going to comment on Young's defense other than he should be embarrassed that the only praise he has ever gotten was for being too slow to get to a fly ball and playing it well off the wall against the Rays.

Side note: The only reason I am not including that stupid fucking sad sack of shit Nick Punto in the group is because I recently found out he's on the DL. By far the best thing he has ever done for the team. Stay hurt, ya little gremlin.
