Last night you once again demonstrated that you continue to be both adorable and good at baseball in equal proportions. Those are our favorite attributes.
But, see....here's the thing. When you play against us for another team....we don't actually want you to be that good at baseball. It's nothing personal. I just worry that maybe if you're too good at baseball when you play against the Twins, we will be forced to stop loving you. And I don't think any of us wants that.
After you hit your home run I thought "Oh no....I got irritated with people for cheering Torii Hunter when he hit a home run. Now what!?" But, then I realized that there are different rules. You were traded away against your will. You did not abandon us. There are distictions made for such matters in my Those Girls Rules of Fan Conduct.
So, I won't tell people not to cheer for you (in fact, I kind of still encourage it). But please know that you are thin ice, mister.
So, here's the deal. No more home runs until you play someone else. When you play someone else you may hit as many home runs as your little heart desires. You can get singles and steal bases if you must, because:
a) it is still really fun to watch you steal bases
b) because my fantasy opponent this week does not have you on his team
as long as the aforementioned hitting and base-stealing does not result in any earned runs for our pitchers. No touching home!
I think that's fair. You're more than adorable enough to make up for two games of being slightly less good at baseball than usual. Cut us a break, OK?
