    I’m not baseball fanatic. Never played past machine pitch. Never watched a non astros game in my life. But even I was wowed by Maldonado and the way he positions catches on the plate. Incredible.

    I am always amazed that the second best team in the AL has such a glaring weakness in that they can't hit the curveball.

    No matter what happens this won't change, he said so himself. And amongst all the memories, he won a WS and proposed to his fiance right on this ground, that sort of thing stays with you for life.

    A guy I want to school with dad was the lawyer who defended Morgana. His defense was that she didn’t really intend to go out on the field but she leaned over and well Gravity took over

    You're saying there are Yankee fans hanging around in enough of a contingency to hear that after the game was over?

    Hard to believe now that we offered that much money knowing what we had in Pena.

    But he told Minnesota fans he loved Juicy Lucies and the Minnesota State Fair. That Rocco Baldeli was the best manager and the Twins a great organization..;):eek::rolleyes:

    Lucky? That's a weird way to describe the best team in baseball.

    Everybody whining about the air killing the Judge ball, nobody mentioning Pena's ball that might have been a triple that became a routine flyout. Or Severinos one mistake (which we made happen), and not Frambers one mistake (which was completely self inflicted).

    I'm not one to complain about the media bias, it's usually overblown IMO. But it does seem slanted in this series.

    It wasn't a serious offer. They knew Correa wouldn't take it but had to at least make it look like they tried.
