On the other hand, if you are going to give an opportunity to the guy, this is the moment. You know he is going to make a blunder or two, but let's see if Plouffe can play once and for all. If after a month or so, they see that he keeps screwing up, offensively and defensively, options or no options, go down or out.
O great; I really hope the Twins realize exactly why they took Plouffe out of the infield after today, because I really don't want to see him in the infield when I go to the game tomorrow. I would prefer Casilla to be at 2b and Carroll at 3b.

I saw that Sano did not play for Beloit today. Anybody know if that was just a routine day off? I'm planning to go to the game tomorrow, but it may not be worth the trip if he's not playing. Also hoping that if it was just a day off that Rosario isn't due for one tomorrow.
Day off and it's his birthday.

Nice hit and run there by Span. Let's build on this and get some runs.
Then they make it easy on Drabek to get out of the inning. Hit and run on 1-0 on terrible pitch would have been 2-0 but is a CS instead and gets the count back to even. Poor play calling there, especially woth a runner on 3rd. I liked the 3-2 hit and run but this one's on the manager.

Yes, Burton has been such a pleasant surprise. Although it is still early in the season, it is great to see a pitcher with a BAA well below 0.100.
Nice showing for Mastroianni... Another great outing for Jared Burton!
