Well, for the six of us that prefer to watch two bad baseball teams play a meaningless game rather than two bad football teams playing an absolutely meaningless game, I have a couple predictions. Carson will get a hit and Florimon won't. Florimon makes a key error and the Twins bow 5-3.

Let's get Blackburn predictions in: I think 6.2 IP 5 ER

I think both Carson and Floriman reach with a hit.

Morneau gets a 2-run dinger.

Twins win 6-5.

Blackburn with the expected first inning gopher ball. Not that easy to do against Seattle.

On the game thread when Span took his tumble, I posted the real-time thought that we all probably were contemplating- "10 days with Delmon day-to-day, and then a "setback", followed by Parmelee getting the call-up".

Pitch up and in to Mauer...weak flare to left.

Pitch up and in to Jason...drilled to right.

Sigh...

I think we've both commented how Mauer just won't pull the ball, not can't, just won't. Ok, it's very rare.

Haven't we been told by experts that throwing a sinker above 91 MPH just won't sink?

Man how predictable was Blackburn getting lit up by Seattle. It's like a trap game in football. (two home runs let up to seattle in two innings classifies as lit up)

Did someone mention perfect game? Does the jinx rule apply if opposing team fans bring up the fact there's a perfect game in progress?. I don't know perfect game protocol. Is there a minimum number of times saying "perfect game" for the perfect game jinx to affect the PERFECT GAME? I would hate to jinx a perfect game. Perfect games are so rare, and there has never been back to back perfect games.

Not to worry, I'm sure Mauer will bloop one over the SS with one out in the seventh.

Do opposing teams play their LFer shallower for Ben Revere, or Joe Mauer? Discuss.

Ullger doin what he did best as 3rd base coach....hold a runner @ 3rd who was off with the pitch, & throw was way off line with a punch/judy hitting Carroll up next.
Man he's a great coach wherever you put him.

Revere yes, Mauer no. Mauer still has that sold warning track power to LF, regularly.

I don't know.... have you seen Doumit run? Between Thome and him I don't know who wins a 50 meter dash. Really.
