The guy who caught the ball--worth probably $40 to $50 grand--gave it to Thomas in exchange for a jersey and signed baseball and bat. Thomas said he appreciated Eisenlohr's willingness to give up the ball without asking a king's ransom.

Life in the HOV Lane, or, How a couple of Minnesotans take an hour and 35 minutes to drive 3 blocks from Anaheim stadium to the hotel
How could it take an hour and 35 minutes to drive 3 blocks from Anaheim stadium to our hotel? We muttered this to Twins' pitcher, Pat Neshek, in the hotel elevator upon our arrival--our frustration at the Twins' 16-3 of loss yesterday utterly eclipsed--and he remarked, "Yeah, that's why I walked."

Some of Slowey's deliveries looked different; he straightens his back on some pitches but not others. I wonder if he could tip his pitches that way. Any ideas?
