Tolbert looks pretty damn good when put up against Nishi and Florimon.

I was watching the Brewers/Pirates game a couple of days ago and the Pirates' pitcher fell while scrambling to grab at a comebacker. I commented that he Hrbek'd the sod because he dug up a chunk of it as he slid to the ground.

I'd like to nominate the term for our Twins Glossary (if it's not already there).

Hey.....don't think I didn't consider you for the role, espescially in view of the unfair attacks on Bruno.

The Boyd Principle - not taking the time to bother with correcting typos

SMF is a new believer.

Boyd, I thought you'd take this in stride. If it bothers you, I'll delete it from the glossary. I remember someone asking you about missing punctuation a few years ago and I think you said you sometimes don't have time to proofread your posts. It was probably Trekkie or Lynn that asked.
