Twins traded Luis Castillo for 2 minor league Mets players. A catcher ?!?!?! and an outfielder. Castillo was a good player, I liked him. He was the only guy who could bunt, and was pretty much a guarantee to get on base. I know he was older, but still. Good Luck Castillo.

He was also guaranteed to be gone at the end of the season. At least we got something, albeit not much.

I've been gone since Friday. All I saw was an L and 2 W's. Was Luis all that was traded?

Castillo has robbed the brewers of 2 hits already. Stupid Twins.

I just watched Castillo advance Reyes to 3rd because of a well placed bunt.
p.s. i started this comment like an hour ago, so it may be a little dated.

I just got back from the game about 15 minutes ago. I don't remember any Castillo "robbing" plays, but he's still fast and reached on a bunt hit at one point. If anyone was robbing it was that Milledge kid diving all over the place in center. The Brewers left a small army of runners on base in the last 5 innings, but finally Jenks sent us home happy. emoticon

There was a play in like the 5th inning or so when Grafanino hit one towards the hole on the right side and Castillo made a diving stop and threw him out. The thing is, Castillo makes a play like that look almost routine. There was another similar, but not quite as difficult, play earlier in the game on a ball hit more up the middle.

17 K's! Thank goodness all it took was a 1-run homer to win the game 1-0 against the Rangers, because if Santana would've lost that game because of our awful offense, well that would've been a shame.

Speaking of how much the Twins suck, Carl has 4 tickets to paradise... aka Twins vs Indians Sept 4. Would Sarah and Jeremy like to accompany Carl and Meagen?

7:10 pm Tuesday the 4th... game 2 of 3 against the hated Indians- Section 121, row 22

I'm not allowed to decide for myself what to watch on TV, I can't make unilateral plans for an evening during the work week. I'll have to check with the Mrs.

Sounds good to me though, and she'll want to if she's able to, more likely than not.

I got tickets from work for being awesome, so they're free. You just have to supply good company.

Our draft is Sept 4th, I'm surprised you don't have that day and time committed to memory.

Five nuts for calling me trustworthy!

Although I'll take them right back if I find out it was sarcasm/facetiousness.

Sarah, Jeremy- Going to the game? I took Sarah's statement as a No. You have until I return from tonight's game to finalize that (have to be able to give my backup time to get away from work too)

Well I guess it's a no, even though that date/time could be changed. I don't know though, Sarah, who is allowed to make/break unilateral plans for an evening during the work week, didn't actually discuss anything with me before she turned you down.

We'll see what options are available.

What someone needs to make, or yahoo should incorporate into the fantasy site, is a website where everyone can set up rules of when they are/aren't available. (I can't the 24th, Tuesdays are no good, Has to be after 8pm, ect) Then the computer figures out the optimal time to have the draft/event.

If anyone knows of a site like this, cause it seems like it should exist, let me know, we should use it in the future.

I wish you two could have come down for that game, Sarah and Jeremy. The other couple I offered to take told me (after I called THEM) at 6pm last night they couldn't make it. Had to scramble, but found two who could use them.

Yeah, I know- it would have been cool to have you come. Unfortunately it is on the eve of the draft, and a weeknight to boot. You would have gotten back to EC around midnite, etc.

Another time/season for sure.

I switched the draft around 3 or 4 times, plus this was like the last time available, otherwise we would've gone.

You wouldn't have gotten home until probably 1230-1, since we went 12 innings. Cuddyer could have made it just 9 innings if he wouldn't have overrun 1st base and got tagged out on a simple single...

That and Hafner hitting two dingers... damn. After about the 7th, it thinned out so bad Lowy and I were able to sneak all the way down to the first row behind the dugout section- it was so close I dared not heckle for fear of getting pounded by an errant bat. Damned Hafner. Atleast we got to see Lofton in action.

Mauer came in with a full count, two outs, bases loaded PH, only to take an evil swing for nothing. Good game, in all, but a loss is a loss.
