Hey, nice to see Punto again, as long he is on the other side.

Hope the bullpen can hold up for DeVries; they have been f%%%ing him over in his last five starts.

Better get it done with the first five tonight...though I like Caroll for a big hit.

Wow, from that list they just showed on FSN, one can only conclude that there is great pitching in the A.L. Central ...blech.

Twins Baseball inning...2 infield hits and a throwing error on a pick off attempt to score a run.

Would it kill Mauer to turn on a pitch once a month or so?

Don't forget the throw going off the runner on the second infield hit.

How often does it happen that there are two errors by the pitcher trying to pick off two different runners?

Why Willingham here? You need a single not home run. Save Willingham for Casilla and Carroll. Let Mastrionni hit here.

Riverbrian

And it's a bad Defensive move.

I'm scratching my head over that decision as well. Maybe Mastrionni shouldn't be batting 6th if he needs to be pinch hit for in that situation.

Bases loaded, nobody out, 4-5-6 hitters up. I guess we should be happy they got a run out of it.

On the bright side, the Twins have Casilla, Dozier, and Carroll due up in the 9th. All hope is not lost!

Didn't really matter though ... pretty sure that home run would have been over every left fielders head.

I guess you have your answer as to why Mastro was in the 6 hole.

Would be nice if a pinch hitter was sitting on his arse in the dugout rather than Drew Butera.

But isn't it more important to have an emergency backstop in the extremely unlikely event both your catchers get hurt in the same game?

snepp

Would be nice if...

...Mauer would come through in a huge spot like this one.

Who else was muttering when he took the 2-0 fastball?

Let's hope Burton can hold 'em down.

Yup, especially when I thought ball three was going to ring him up.

Took a lot of guts to lay off the 2-2 pitch just before.

I have less of a problem with Butera taking a bench spot than I do with the fact that the pitching staff is such crap that management feels the need to keep 13 pitchers on the active roster.

But really, who needs another bench bat when you can count on clutch hits from Casilla and Carroll?

When did he start hitting right handed?

Valentine's reaction was priceless.

Is he still the Boston manager Monday night?

I'm watching the Boston broadcast. They were pretty fair on the 2-2 pitch to Mauer, Remy called it "close, but outside."

He probably needs security getting to his car.

I guess I would say if you're gonna carry 13 pitchers, those bench spots become even more important, and giving one to Butera becomes even more hurtful.

Not like it matters, they're not in contention, but these kinds of things matter over 162 games.

We're somehow only 5.5 games behind Boston. That's pathetic.

I hope he washed his hand when he got back to the clubhouse, it looked like it may have gotten drenched in one of his bodily fluids. Hard to tell if it was saliva or vomit though.

I thought for sure this one was over when they got that 4th run.

Nice to exactly a little revenge on Boston - there were a couple of heartbreaking losses when they swept us at Target Field early on, during the horrid 10-26 start.

Top Gun
08-04-2012, 09:41 PM
I would rather have Butera on the bench than in the lineup. The 14th pitcher!

Whatever it was, it was projectile in nature.

No matter the season record, winning still feels pretty good. Winning in dramatic fashion, even better. Winning in dramatic fashion over the self important drama queens in Boston, even better yet.

My god, I was so ready to be pissed at the Twins for wasting DeVries's (I believe) best start when I turned off the radio after the Sox scored their 4th run. Then I turn on the radio and I hear Twins won 6-4 and I am in a serious WTFWTFWTFWTF mode.

---Yeah, it does. 37-34 after starting 10-26. Only 3 games back of Cleveland with 10 games left against them.

Not that a third-place finish is anything to celebrate or aspire to, but after last season's second-half free fall and this season's miserable start, clawing back to that would at least be a step in the right direction.

Hey, nice to see Punto again, as long he is on the other side.

He put on an absolute clinic on playing 3rd base in this game. Hope Valencia was paying attention. Plouffe, too, from back home.
