Francisco Liriano made his season debut Saturday against the Mets and allowed one run in 5 1/3 innings as part of a 11-2 victory.

Josh Willingham is out of the Twins' lineup Saturday due to wrist soreness.

Willingham is considered day-to-day. The 34-year-old outfielder has five homers and 15 RBI in 29 games. Aaron Hicks (elbow) is also sitting Saturday vs. the Orioles.

At least this is included in the price of the ticket - no extra charge necessary.

Good job for Arcia, throwing to the correct base - if only he had done that earlier in the inning.

I was pleased with the acquisition of Worley. At this point, though, he just looks like he's lobbing pitches in. There's no velocity, not much movement, not even much control. I know this doesn't come as a shock to anyone here, but I just had to type it. And like I said above, I'd love to see him get through 5 1/3.

And 6-5 is even scarier. Maybe Hernandez can come in- he hardly pitched the other night. Something's got to change. The pen is burned up and the Orioles are on fire.

Went to a Giants game last night. I think every square inch of the place is filled with ad space. Also every half inning they do some stupid promotion or gimmick to keep their idiot fan base entertained. Cain walked off the field after giving up 3 hits in 8 innings to the Braves, and the fans that were smart enough to give him an ovation were interrupted by mass karaoke. I hate the Giants.

So what is your point? That the only people who should attend are die-hard baseball purists? Should the casual fan be ignored?

Baseball is entertainment. It is also a business, designed to make money. Nothing more. Nothing less. I have no problem with front offices trying to make the gameday experience pleasant for the casual fan.

I don't know that I had a point, other than to compare experiences at AT&T vs. other parks. I understand what you're saying but the Giants are over the top with their schtick. I don't remember this much fake ambiance in Minnesota, for example. They interrupted a standing ovation for their ace pitcher, that kind of did it for me.

Now get off my lawn.
