My sentiments exactly.

Especially exact are 5,6,7,9, & 11.

Thanks wife's favorite Indian was Vic Davilillo and I'm from Massachusetts, and people are glad when I don't show up also...
I hope the Twins take back Kirby and use him on the field, because what he's got you can't teach, just watch him work.
I was hoping for Nomar at Shortstop and Big Hurt for DH...they both may be much much cheaper than they earned last year.
Jason Kubel probably won't make it back this soon but we should know how long it will take by April and May.
Is Molitor a good coach? Seattle let him go, and you can't teach the way he hit...that was skill.
And the White Sheet will turn real brown by the end of the Dome...
