Rocketpig, what is the story with Mauer... Is he ok?

Most likely just a day off, Mauer has been playing nearly every day for a while and he has started to struggle a bit (past 3-4 games)

Yeah, the Twins haven't had a day off in awhile and I assume that Mauer is just taking a day off to rest.

So we have Casilla as the Latin whisperer along with Drew?

Joe C at StarTrib said in his lineup write up that Gardenhire said even during the last series (or over the weekend) that Mauer would get a day off on the road trip. Shouldn't be cause for alarm. (Oh please, oh please, oh please...with apologies to Gary Larson for using his material.)

Giving him a day vs. a tough lefty isn't a bad thing. Besides, Gardy said that he wanted Butera to play pretty soon (ugh!).

September can't come soon enough so we can have a expanded roster.

Drew, whispering up a storm of epic proportions thus far.

Drew just advanced a runner at 724pm central standard time

Of course he's also calling a one hit shutout from a wild pitcher through five innings.

I agree and I would submit that Deduno and Butera deserve a lot of praise for their performances tonight.

And three outs to go with it. :o

If Deduno ever got that fastball across the plate a lot of people could de-angst about Liriano.

I've got the Sawks announcers tonight, they don't even acknowledge his exsistance.

Though, I admit I'm not sure what Jerry Remy is saying half the time.

Blyleven has prounced his name 80 different ways.

Did I just hear DeDoumit?

Can you imagine, your looking at slop the whole game and Perkins comes in, and starts buzzing 97mph fast balls under your chin.

Good game, Mastroianni.

I'm going to periodically talk crap about Dozier more often on here. Seems to work well for the kid.

Now a non save situation

Get Gray up in the Bullpen.

Perkins, now unavailable for a week.

Yeah, Perkins pitching here makes about as much sense as Jeff Gray pitching in a tie game in the ninth. Don't the Twins have mop-up guys for exactly this type of situation?

The Twins just shut out the Sox at Fenwey, but reading the comments, they looked like written by a mother in law. Lighten up!

A big win for the Twins! Now keep it going.

Does it really matter whether Perkins pitches for a week? He is one of the few known quantities going into 2013. Baby Burton and Perkins the rest of the way and probably they will reward the team with good performances next year. The twins need to find out who can pitch and who can't--guys like Fien, Gray, Burnett and Robertson can build a case for next year in the next month or so. I don't hold out a lot of hope for Gray, but some of the other guys have a chance.

Nice win in a clean, crisp, briskly-paced game. I never would have guessed that the Twins could participate in a game lasting all of a mere 2:35 with Sam Deduno on the mound. It's hard to figure how he's taken 'til 29 to suddenly figure things out. Hopefully the league won't soon figure HIM out and reveal that he's little more than just a mirage manipulating mirrors like a magician. Give Gardy, Andy and Ryan credit for their willingness to give the kid a shot even though his approach is antithetical to everything they preach. Gotta keep pulling for him.

Don't see it mentioned here, a heckuva nice game by the rookie out at SS, too.
