I hate Endy Chavez, and other stuff.

I feel like the Twins really rallied around Team Awesome tonight.  

Justin Morneau made up for his Oh-fors the last 2 games with a homerun right away.  That was nice. And Kevin Slowey added a few K's.  And even the bullpen helped the cause by making sure that Kevin hung on to that W.  Much appreciated everyone.  Good job, Team Awesome.  Good job, Twins. Let's keep it up.

With all the homers tonight, did anyone else feel like they'd wandered into a parallel universe, where everything looks the same but you can tell that something is off-balance?  I don't know what it was, but I definitely felt a little Twilight Zone/Outer Limits-ish about the whole thing. Which isn't necessarily bad.  I like the Twilight Zone.

Other notes:
  • I hate Endy Chavez.
That's pretty much it, really.  I think there were other things I was going to mention (Joe Nathan being awesome was probably in there somewhere), but it's been kind of blurred out by my new-found blinding irrational hatred of Endy Chavez.

You forgot to mention how fantastically awesome it is that Nick Punto's theme music is Thriller!!!

From now on, I think I'm going to mention a little quip about the word verification word I receive.

Litesse: Lite-finesse, to handle non-heavy items with gentle precision.

I really am feeling nervous about the games, I need to move out of every game is so important that my head hurts. I need to enjoy baseball but I have a September head in April and I am hoping to get out of it.

Loved the win and the save last night

Ok Jeremiah i will see your litesse and see you a MALSA- as in OOOO there are weird tomato ends in the salsa I hate that it is some Malsa.

I think I have a September head all season, every season... it's pretty emotionally draining. I wouldn't reccomend it.

As far as September Head goes, I think that last season didn't help.

Just ONE more win, any of those games (I'm thinking that marathon extra-innings loss to the Yankees, or those games in Colorado we inexplicably lost) and the whole White Sox tie nonsense would have been a moot point.

It was a clear demonstration that every game DOES count.

I'm glad the boys rallied around "Team Awesome". fantasy baseball is not treating me well.
my word verification was walkeye- perhaps a walleye with legs?

And today, I hate Franklin Gutierrez.

Dan Gladden called Endy Chavez "Andy Sanchez." Does that help?
