    So Gardy did you know Kubel can't hit lefties and you have Colabello on the bench?... same old same old. On a positive note we are deep in DH. We have 3 starting today 1 at DH 1 at 3rd and 1 in left...big sigh

    Colabello standing on first base would be an unusual batting stance.

    Best bring in long relief, like Duensing, as we may not score again for multiple innings.

    If Deduno isn't coming in here, then what exactly was the point of him warming up in the 9th?

    Nice movement on Tonkin's fastball for strike three.

    The announcers made a reference to Duensing being not on the roster, hence Tonkin's availability at all. I do not remember seeing anything about Duensing - anyone know?

    He arrives back today and is supposed to be activated for tomorrow.

    Has a new baby boy.

    I think we may be seeing the two worst teams in the AL this year.

    Nice work Tonkin. He might stay up even when Duensing is back depending on how Fien's ankle is

    Can we put a fork in this comical Dozier as a leadoff guy thing? Just put Hicks back up top of the order.

    There is nothing that epitomizes Mauer better than him coming up late in the game and nursing a 1 out walk. Always kicking the can down the lineup to generate runs.

    Dollar for dollar, the Angels may make a run at it.

    I agree but hesitate to "like" this.

    He will eventually, but after what happened last year and with the start he's off to, they better leave him alone for now.

    I'm so p'd off I typed Duensing instead of Swarzak. This could be a long season on this old timer.

    I didn't like saying it either. However, I'm not a big fan of bad baseball.

    I'll take the blame. I turned on the game just in time for Dunn's AB in the 8th.

    Yeah, if he keeps it up for a dozen games or so that may be time to revisit it. It would certainly be a nice boost.
