    Colabello making some plays over at 1B!
    I opine about the Twins and Kernels regularly at Knuckleballsblog.com while my alter ego, SD Buhr covers the Kernels for MetroSportsReport.com.

    I agree on the Hawks, JC although I hope they can manage to beat Northwestern.

    You may have seen more of the Twins game than I did ... I've been trying to switch around plus get some photos edited so I haven't been paying much attention.

    Purdue/Ohio State close though.

    Yeah, hoping Purdue beats OSU. I pretty much hope everyone beats the Buckeyes at everything. Easily my least favorite athletic program in the B1G.

    Hughes and Deduno both looked pretty good on the mound for Minny today, from what I could tell. Twins still not hitting the ball much, though.

    How did Deduno look pitching? All I can go off is the box score, and that looks good.
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    I thought Deduno looked very good. Then again, most of the Sox big leaguers were out of the game by then and he does generally look good the first time through an opponent's batting order. I wish I was more confident that he'll ever cut down on the number of pitches he throws to the point where he can go deeper in to games. Worst case, though, he looks like a dominant RP.

    That's one of the things that makes judging the ST performances difficult, e.g. Colabello has been hitting well but has he faced the same quality of pitchers as others? It's really hard to tell from a distance.

    According to BR, Cola's average ST PA has been against AAA pitching:

    FWIW, BR has Deduno's average strength of batter rating for Spring Training at 8.4, with 8.0 being AAA and 10.0 being MLB:

    I agree with you though, as a set-up guy or middle innings eater, he profiles to be very good.

    I tried to post this in thread during the game, but, well ... too hard to see my phone in the sun and the connection just wasn't going through ...

    Well, and of course I'm still directionally-challenged when it comes to posting photos.

    Saw the entire game in person. I thought all of the guys looked good on the mound, Herrmann had 2 knocks, but overall, there is a lot to do in a short time. I will watch tomorrow and hope for better results.

    does this mean Kubel's HR off of Price will carry more weight than it otherwise might.. Just wondering what you think.
