Twins 8, Yankees 4

I gave up writing about politics here because I was tired of arguing with morons (and, in the process, lost 95% of my readership--hi, Dad).

But . . . it has (it has been suggested) become part of the Associated Press Stylebook that every dreadful new regulation of Obamacare be known as "little-known."

As in: "A little-known portion of the Affordable blah blah was revealed today. It regulates blah blah terrible consequence." You, pass the bill so we can find out what's in it, and so on.

Along those lines, I hslf-seriously propose that every reference to AJ Burnett hereinafter be preceded by "exasperating."

"The exasperating Burnett took the mount with the Yankees in an impressive road tip. However, it was clear the exasperating Burnett was in for a short night. In fact, the exasperating Burnett did not even make it out of the second inning. Afterward, the exasperating Burnett made no apologies . . ."

my thoughts exactly! before the twins made their first three outs, i knew it would be a long night. so, after the 3rd inning, decided to watch a movie with desertrose. it was a good decision. well, thank god the knuckleballer was pitching for the sawx tonight.
