- A 1.000 batting average
- 2 home runs
- Tap dancing
- Daring rescue of a tiny fluffy kitten from a burning building in between innings [apparently it's fire hazard weather in Florida right now, so it's not THAT far-fetched]
If Crede and the Twins want to make me feel better about shuffling off Brian Buscher to no man's land in the organization, I don't think that's too much to ask.
The only thing that could have made Buscher's performance better today would be if I actually could have seen it. Plus, I would have enjoyed seeing the awesome pitching today, mostly Nick Blackburn and my newly sworn-in Baseball Boyfriend Craig Breslow. It looks like poor Philip Humber got roughed up a little...but when we score 10 runs, giving up 4 isn't the end of the world. Besides, to borrow one of Joe Crede's inspirational quotes (oh yes, I've commited them all to heart), "a W is a W." Especially in Spring Training when they don't count anyway.
I tried watching the Rays/Yanks game....but Jason Bartlett played yesterday and not today, and the Rays were losing. So....I stopped watching after a few innings. My apologies to Rays fans.
Someone today commented on not being able to watch the games without the MLB Network. I recommend getting a month's subscription to MLB.tv. It's working a bazillion times better than it did last season (this year you don't have to use that b.s. Silverlight software), and there are quite a few spring training games broadcast. You have to email them to cancel the subscription after a month (they do auto-renew), but it's worth the hassle to be able to access video of games you might not see otherwise.
