In the Beginning

At last, dear readers, baseball has returned. TBL has little to report: the Dome was crowded, the "food" remains unchanged, the score was not all one hoped it would be. It appears our boys left all the good bats in Florida. Overnight courier, anyone?

(By the bye, does anyone know why there were no Gameday programs?)

On the bright side, the Twins are tied for first in the division (with Cleveland and Detroit, who also lost, half a game ahead of Kansas City and Chicago, whose game was postponed). And Joe Crede's back appears to have survived the night.

Postscript for the psychotic Justin Morneau fan a few rows back: He can't hear you. Give it a rest, already.

2 rejoinders:

Meagan sounded off...

There appeared to be a Gameday-like insert within the crappy Twins-issued scoresheet, stuck inside the crappy Twins-issued magazine.

GM-Carson sounded off...

More Hardball is back with another photoshopped baseball card post. This time we take on the Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins. Players spoofed: Kerry Wood, Aaron Laffey, Trevor Crowe, Kevin Slowley, Scott Baker, Denard Span, R.A. Dickey, and Delmon Young.

We appreciate the plug, and look for a "shout-out" in return from us.
