Likes and Dislikes of Tuesdays Game

The Twins won last night, taming the Tigers 6-2. I was almost bashed by a Magglio Ordonez foul ball. The following are some other things I disliked about last night.

The crowd. Classy bunch of folks there on a Tuesday night. Some drunk attempted to start the wave. If you're going to start the wave, don't. If you insist, do it the right way. The guy I saw on Tuesday was doing a horrible job doing a terrible thing. He tried it while there were two men on base in the sixth, just after the Twins had knocked out Big Cat.

The worst part was his positioning. He attempted to start the wave from section 115, moving counter-clockwise. The lower level at the dome ends at section 113.

- - Delmon Young becomes more frustrating to watch the more you see him. He swings at the first pitch every time. He can't play left field. At first it was cute. As, "Oh there's Delmon, stompin invisible grapes, running in circles..Hey Delmon! You look dizzy, and you haven't even made the wine yet!"

Now it's just sad. It's a shame that he's out of options. Imagine how good the Red Wings would be with Carlos Gomez, Alexi Casilla and Delmon Young. If the Twins suck this year, I'm going to become a big Red Wings fan.

- Sour Milk. This has to be one of the worst taste/smell combination's ever. Out of all the terrible smells in the world, I'll bet about 90% of them have something to do with bacteria and decomposition.

- Jesse Crain. He started the 7th inning with a 5-1 lead, facing the number nine hitter. Then he accidentally gave up a home run and walked the next guy. World Baseball Classic.

Carlos Gomez was so excited to come in as a defensive replacement in the top of the eighth. He was running around doing calithestenics, and then almost smashed into Denard. He went on to work a walk (!) steal a base and score a run. He could really help that Rochester club. Here are some other things I liked:

The crowd. Classy bunch of folks there on a Tuesday night. Some ladies had a sign that said, "Triangle me, Dick."

Is that Juan Rincon? Juan Rincon. This is awkward, because we sort've ran you out of town, and didn't really expect to see you back.... Really? You were here with the Indians last year? Sorry, we didn't notice. But here's the deal: we like you. We've talked it over, aaaand we decided that we'd love to have you back. We'll even trade someone to Detroit to get you back here. Who? Ahh, Jesse Crain. Don't laugh.

don't do it (trade anyone for Rincon).

He's been consistently bad since the word "steroids" was put in the same sentence as his name.

Torii Hunter is such a good role model.

Rincon was sent down today so D-train could start. So he'll be cheap. Maybe they will take Luis Ayala? Or a few of those Joe Mauer Swingaways?

Poor Big Papi... Ortiz went 0 for 7 and stranded 12 runners
