Could someone post the lineups for me? Heading to a funeral, which isn't as unlike a Twins game as one might think.

long rain delay where Cole cannot come back would be great to see. Want to see how gardy/andy handle it.

Maybe the Twins won't lose today after all.

Revere pads his lead in the cumulative hussle index (inf hits + sb's).

edit: also successfully-evaded rundowns.

His score now stands at 60

On the other hand, the Rangers are making a lot of errors. So anything can happen.

I wish Revere would start sliding feet first like Mauer. He is going to break something

How is it that the pitcher with the 'worst stuff' (not my evaluation, but seemingly team/media's view).....can be the only one who can seemingly pitch to this Rangers lineup???

Are you deducting points for base-running mistakes? I've seen him make several this year.

Did anyone hear how far Morneau's home run went yesterday? I know Duenslinger gave up a 463 footer to Moreland which was 3rd longest ever at Arlington. Morneau's couldn't have been far behind that

Wouldnt you think that a tired 98 pitch DeVries (5IP 3h 1er 0bb 5k) is better than a fresh Gray......wrote this before Josh's HR also

08-26-2012, 05:49 PM
I blame Gardy

greengoblinrulz

Does Butera get credit for the DeVries outing, but not for the Gray inning????

Casey Fien has a 25% ground ball rate. He has surrendered 33 fly balls, in 22 IP and zero home runs... he has a ERA of 1.25, a FIP of 2.27, and xFIP of 4.44

Since the initial bombing of Gray in MIL on May 20th when people kept saying 'it was only a 1gm outing...why are some people upset'

DFA this son of a bitch and pitch Butera in his stead. If there isn't room for Blackburn on this roster, than there sure as hell isn't room for Gray.

Strike that campaign. Jeff Gray has been charged with Crimes Against Humanity and is being sent to the Hague Court in the Netherlands to face trial.

Does MLB allow players to be removed from the 40man for that or is it more like 15 day DL?

I've said before that I'm not ready to anoint Glen Perkins the closer role, but since his last blown save he's run a nice sequence of 16 games with a 2.16 ERA; he's given up runs but not in close games where it cost anything. Closing out a one-run game against a top team today is a nice accomplishment. I'm very hopeful my earlier view that 2011 was a career year for him turns out wrong by several seasons' worth.

Probably won't see this since the game thread is archived already, but ESPN says 448 ft.

I didn't see any of the game. I did listen to portions while on the road. I have been impressed by Fien. He just about has to regress to the mean a bit, but I think he has just about won himself a bullpen spot next spring. Not as certain about De Vries, IMHO his performance has earned himself a major league contract and a chance to compete for a spot in '13.

My list for September callups: Carson and Dozier return. Slama and Vasquez get a look (one open spot + a Gray DFA), Arcia gets rewarded for his awesome season with a chance to impress. I suppose Walters will be brought back and Capps, too, if he can throw the ball straight and over 90 mph.

If you like fastballs with no movement, they should bring back Willie Banks.
