Twins are in for a tough one tonight against David Price. Like most great pitchers we will have to get to him early.
Against David Price, Span, and Doumit will have the night off, but we do have Butera catching Blackburn.
I will convince myself, that I am going to the park to see the Rays and Joe Maddon.
Wow, all-star line-up tonight.
WTF....walk the dogs & came back & Nick gave up 3runs already. Thought Butera was catching....what happenned to him??:D
Thank heavens for the DP.
Butera in ...Doumit out vs David Price.
Hmmmm have talked about Gardy 'not trying' to win. This is a decent example.
We need to do some serious changes big time in our staffing pitching
Let's see if Anderson whispered some magic between innings since Butera obviously idn't in the 1st.
Masty, 1-1 in his career agasnt price. He's growing on me as a quality 4th outfielder.
At this point which is worst, paying Blackburn 4.5 million or Nishi 3 million?
So I feel worse about Nishi's contract.
Lead the league in Double plays and still going. 2nd one tonight. We are doing a few things right.
Blackie doesn't seem to be fooling BJ upton with anything he is throwing up there.
there we go.....Blackie was one pitch away from actually havin an above average start (3er in 5IP....5.4 ERA) but BJ got him back to a game ERA of 7.8 (average start which is amazing)
That is if he gets another out.
I'm surprised no one has commented on Revere's assist at 2B. I know it's baby step improvement, but still an impressive throw compared to previous attempts.
