Vertigo

A lady came racing into the nursery yesterday pushing a walker on wheels. I said, you sure don't look like you need that, and she said she has dizzy spells so she has it just in case. That would be miserable. I get dizzy when I pop out of bed too fast, but I can't imagine feeling like that at random throughout the day.

I did get a little dizzy last night thinking about all the business that we have to do in the next month. I think we have over twenty people on payroll right now, and the thought occurred to me in the middle of the night: This had better work.

Twins 6 Royals 1

Okay, it's just the Royals, but the Twins could have lost. Radke pitched well tonight, and the Twins acted like a good team.

The best part of the game was watching young Francisco Liriano make the Royals look absolutely foolish in relief of Radke in the eighth and ninth innings. The Twins coaches say Liriano has better stuff than Santana, and that's saying something. Santana was throwing 98 mph last night, as was Liriano tonight. But Liriano has a slider that just plain confuses batters.

Liriano is going to be a star.
