Indians as the opponent
Minor league catcher
About 5,000 fans in the seats

Sounds like they're simulating a minor league game as much as possible for Hendriks.

One could make the case that every game this team plays is a minor league game...

[h=5]Our mn twins have the worst home record in all of baseball, the last 2 years. and still they plan NO major changes, way to treat all the people who helped support target field being built . its as bad as a ponzy scheme, pohlads and the twins should be ashamed what they have done, care about one thing $$$$$$$. im done with em!!!

I am totally pulling for Hendriks today to get his first major league win, and for Herrmann to have a great debut.

A Plouffe home run would also be nice.

In fairness, the Pohlads did pony up for a 2nd jumbotron to further distract from the product on the field.

The Twins' DH is really playing like he wants a batting title.

What was that about Florimon being our starting SS in camp next year? Is that carved in stone?

Hendriks appears to be on track for his first win -- let's hope that the bullpen does not blow it for him.

Wow, that was an awful call.



Good for Mauer though.

Another single for Mauer, another run for the Twins, and getting close to locking down Hendriks' first win...

Good night overall.

Gardy will be ejected in about 10 seconds if they call him out.

This has been a fun game to listen to with Hendricks in line for his first "big league" win, Willingham padding his resume with a 4 for 4 night (so far), Carroll almost hit his 2nd homer in 4 years.

I have a question though. For those who listen on Gameday, does it seem like Chris Atterbury (who is doing the broadcast with Cory Provos tonight) always has his microphone gain set way too high so it distorts.

Jesus, Miggy with another homer. Sitting at 1-2 for the night with 2 BB. He's on fire. I'd be shocked if he loses the MVP at this point. Trout is fading fast and Miggy has turned into a monster.

Cabrera's post All-Star numbers:

July: 1.086 OPS
August: 1.092 OPS
September: 1.223 OPS

Christ, those numbers are Bonds-ian.

Did they take away Mauer's hit and the run? What the hell is going on here?

I wouldn't have blamed Hendriks for walking out of the stadium and hopping on a plane back to Australia if Robertson gave away that lead.
