    Kevin really (insert cliche) to give us nearly six solid innings today despite not having his best stuff.

    For sure.. there's been plenty of good players that the Twins could have offered more money over the years, but decided not to.

    Lowrie lucky not to have ended up with stitching imprint tattooed onto his forehead.

    Did my favorite Pitcher just knock my Fantasy SS/2B eligible Player out of the game!

    Great... Like I can replace him with Florimon or Tejada.

    Deduno is even more interesting to watch now that he's added the balk to his arsenal...

    Balks are too touchy at times.

    I think I've owned Nunez about 8 times the past 3 years.

    Yeah. As I understand it the intent of the rule is to prevent the pitcher from faking out batters and baserunners. Hard to see how a microtremor like that could have anybody jumping out of their shoes, but it was technically illegal. Sigh.
