The balls were falling out of the sky like a porn movie on a frenzy.

Looks like the hail storm is the only entertainment that Twin's fans will be treated to tonight. DOH!

One bright spot - Liriano was able to carry a no hitter 1/3 of the way into the 2nd inning - he is pure gold!!!

Not a chance.

The first two postponed games were probably due to cold weather more than rain - the Twin's will learn in time that they will just have to play through the cold weather pain.

I for one love the idea of weather playing a part in Minnesota baseball - this is how true baseball is supposed to be.

At this point there is no room, and no money, for a roof - now or in the future. Besides, have you ever been to Miller Park? Decent place - better than the Metrodome - but Miller Park is a behemoth of a stadium, while Target Field is a true ballpark.

"Some Twins players, standing in the dugout, tried to catch the hail in their mouths."

I don't know the exact velocity of hail. But common sense would tell you that an object of that size falling from 5,000 feet might just get a bit stingy if you try to catch it with your mouth. Geez.
