Through the magic of Twitter

we can recreate the events that unfolded yesterday afternoon.  Most of the roster got involved, as well as a few special guests.

We'll try this again.  If the editor eats it again, I'll break it into two parts.


Pregame warmup.  The infielders are taking groundballs in the infield, and the relievers are sitting out in the bullpen)

Ph_124604_medium WrightOne: <whine> Kyle!! Leave us alone - we're trying to play Magic: The Gathering!! </whine>

527068_90x135_medium Treyballsan: I still need to decide if Josey should go on a minor league rehab assignment.

Ph_115229_medium JoGuiSandwich: Trey's still got to decide how much he likes having two testicles.

Ph_465657_medium Mexicutioner:  I hope I get to pitch today.  Although all this time off has allowed my to perfect my Guitar Hero skills.




(Top of the first inning, Kyle Davies is having a lot of trouble locating his pitches)

Ph_434678_medium HiramTheConquerer:  I'm thinking I shouldn't have used the jackhammer on my new patio renovation before the game.


(Rangers perform a double steal of second and third base)

Ph_407833_medium TheStorminMormon:  C'mon guys - stop running!  It's bad enough that Kyle can't find the plate, you guys don't need to embarrass me!


(Top of the second inning, Mike Jacobs steps to the plate with a runner on first)

Ph_408312_medium IceIceJacobs: Alright, stop.  Collaborate and listen.  Ice is back with a brand new invention.  Something...grabs a hold of me tightly.


(Mike Jacobs hits a HR and is rounding the bases)
Ph_408312_medium IceIceJacobs: Will it ever stop?  Yo, I don't know.  Turn out the lights and I'll glow...Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle.

Ph_150035_medium tH3_Pr043550R: I feel a great time is nearly at hand.


(Top of the 7th inning, Trey informs Kyle Davies that he's done for the day)

527068_90x135_medium Treyballsan: Nice job today Kyle!  After that first inning, you rebounded with one heckuva gritty performance.

Ph_456714_medium BaconatorBillyB: Where'd Sidney go?  He knows where all of the good food is.

(Billy Butler exits down the tunnel.)

Burgos_medium Murda4Life: Loves the way Farnworth plays.  He takes it personally, like a good game of dominoes.

Ph_150035_medium tH3_Pr043550R: it is time for the straightball of doom to seal the fates of the weak hearted.

Ph_276545_medium BetterThanArod: Remember when I used to play second base?

(Trey enters the conference room and sits down at the table)

527068_90x135_medium Treyballsan: Tough loss today.  I'm here to answer any and all questions.

Sgil_medium RichardKaegel:  Well gee, Coach, did you ever think about doing you bullpen differently?

527068_90x135_medium Treyballsan: I didn't think these were going to be baseball related questions.

527068_90x135_medium Treyballsan: Does anyone have any non-baseball related questions?  Anyone?  That's it - I'm done

(Trey gets up and leaves the postgame conference)


(Trey leaves the postgame to run into Dayton Moore and a random Royals fan outside the conference room.

8dcwohdm_medium DMtheGM: Tough game Trey.  Could you explain your Farnsworth plan?

Image_php_medium RoyalsFan: What's to explain!? He's an idiot!

527068_90x135_medium Treyballsan: Well, basically, I just copied that plan we have now.

8dcwohdm_medium DMtheGM: <impressed> Hmmm...... </impressed>

527068_90x135_medium Treyballsan: Then, I added some fins to Kyle's uniform to lower wind resistance.

527068_90x135_medium Treyballsan: And the new racing stripe I added to his jersey I feel is pretty sharp.

8dcwohdm_medium DMtheGM: Agreed.  Top Notch.  And Trey, remember the plan:  We let them pitch.

Bill_pecota_autograph_medium PECOTA: We let them pitch.
