Jeff at League of Angels points out that the injury-plagued Angels have much to fear from the next three days' worth of games at the Metrodome. The Twins have installed Field Turf this year, and, by all accounts, it's not quite finished settling yet. Even the Field Turf promotional literature is less than encouraging: "it is not necessarily to blame for any of the team's injuries?" Ye Gods.

Having caught a couple Twinkie games on TV this year (via ESPN, of course), I can say that the new stuff is a visual experience not to be missed. The dome has gone from looking like someone painted their concrete basement floor green to looking like someone covered their concrete basement floor with the stuff people use to make minature landscapes for their model trains.
