Denard Span tweeted a bit ago that Batting Practice was cancelled.

I am looking at the radar and we may get lucky. The worst of the rain is already south of Target field. and going southeast. If no new storms show up, they might get it in.

I live 10-15 miles from the stadium -- around here the rain has let up and the skies aren't looking too ominous.

Hope they can get the game in. This has been a fun series so far.

I'm less than five miles from the stadium as the crow flies and I don't think it has rained here in three hours.

I live close to the ball park as well and it hasn't rained at all in couple of hours. I hope they can play ball. Let's keep the string of series wins going.

Good to see Parmelee back in the lineup. I would like to see him get regular at-bats.

My goodness, Plouffe has really figured it out. Don't stop now!

Based on his recent rate, Plouffe could hit more than 60 home runs this year.

I am glad to hear that. Now we need to get some damn offense going.

Looks like we are taking good pitches, getting behind, and swinging at pitchers' pitches.

Sorting OPS.....If Plouffe were qualified, coming into tonight, he'd be right between Kubel and Pierzinski...odd.

Just noticed that San Diego now has the worst run differential in the MLB, supplanting the Twins. Moving on up!

We'll, that depends upon if and how badly we get beat tonight.

Noticed that Mauer was steeling the catchers signs and indicating that change up to Willingham. The catcher noticed this and went to a secondary set of signs, using the mask, shin guard and chest protector to call the slider that struck Willingham out. Love picking up on little stuff like that...

Not a good effort at the plate tonight. Seems like we have this sort of game at least once a week.

Two pretty terrible losses. Philly hasn't scored runs all year, but seemingly score at will all series against Twins pitching. Twins get runs last night but the Walters fiasco puts them in too big a hole, then tonight Joe F'ing Blanton, the Nick Blackburn of the Phillies, tosses a complete game at them.

Terrible game, You gotta show up and roll these guys. I dont fault Diamond. Thome killed him, otherwise he had a decent outing. Offense should pick him up there...

I am mystified by the inability to get hits off Blanton. Were the hitters TOO anxious/aggressive? Too overconfident after last night's scoring? Or just unfocused?
