Cabrera

The Twins traded for 34-year-old Oakland A's shortstop Orlando Cabrera today before trade deadline. I don't know how the trade will work, but at least now the other players have no excuse for their mediocrity. They demanded help from the front office and they got it.

Tonight, a good game going on with the Angels. Twins lead so far 5-4, but....as I wrote the previous sentence, the game was tied with a home run by some Napoli guy I have never heard of but who is apparently very good. So, it could be a long night. The Angels are a very solid team.

New potatoes

Is there anything better? I just finished nibbling on the leftovers from supper. They melt in your mouth. I had some unsalted butter which added a gentle touch of flavor. Eaten with the peelings, I guess that new potatoes are a very complete food, filled with nutrients and probably a few minerals. The real gardening harvest has begun.
