Ye olde bet

As I'm sitting here typing this post, Bert Blyleven is probably ruing his bet with Johan Santana. The stupid color commentator on FSN North made a bet with Johan that he couldn't pitch a complete game shutout against the Mets. Well, Johan did. And he personally shaved off Bert's hair. So, as we can conclude from this, Bert Blyleven is probably feeling like the dumbest person on the face of the earth right now. And in the words of Twins fans, Circle Me, Bert!

Man, those pitchers stink today

In my blogging absence, lots of things have happened with the Twins. Ramon Ortiz was ineffective and Sidney Ponson was as bad as Ben Sheets. Well, what can we learn from that?

Sidney Ponson is a drinker and Ramon Ortiz is a stinker. Also, Terry Ryan was as low as Ground Zero when he picked up these two pitchers, who stink as much as the Brewers. (I mean the Milwaukee Brewers, not my team.)

Also, I wonder what Sidney Ponson is going to do now. Blow up the Marriott? Or have another horrible outing for some other team?

As for Ramon, he was actually good in April, but then in May he was like a little crying baby. He couldn't find the strike zone with the most advanced tools known to man. So what will he do next? Maybe he'll take an example from Sidney and get drunk and then pick a fight with Terry Ryan?

As of this writing, Sidney is likely blowing it in retirement. And Ramon is in the bullpen, where he'll be worse than in the starting rotation.

Bring up the kids - is that too much to ask?
