    Is there any doubt that the call-ups are better hitters than the guys sent down (and Hicks)?

    (At least give Rajai an assist. Too be technically correct (the best kind) Mauer scores the run, so does he tie the game? Note to self: in future, the Twins tie the game... unless of course that's trademark infringement?)

    Fien gets Torii, Miggy and V-Mart, Perk gets the bottom of the order. Sounds fair enough.

    I no longer have to hope for the HBP or catchers interference. (did not include error as that would require contact between bat and ball).

    Well, if the Twins keep the lead this half inning, it will be an accomplishment.

    Gardy's nothing if not conventional and driven by meaningless stats

    Gardy going with Perk for a four-out save? Sacrilege! Oh, wait!

    Bremer and Morris expressing uncertainty which lefthander will be called upon to take as much time as he wants to warm up in the wake of Fien getting drilled.

    I think Gardy got tossed, so you can blame the sacrilege on someone else...

    Steinbach.

    I think we may know who's going to the DL to make room for Arcia.

    Good catch, Gardy got the boot earlier. He strikes me as a guy who still uses a rotary phone so I doubt he texted his instructions to whoever's in charge.

    Sorry. I am slow on the uptake.

    Anyway, it hasn't gone wrong yet, so i'm happy.

    If this were Burton getting hit by a batted ball, you could have been right. With Fien pitching well so far this season, his actual physical status Tuesday will decide that, IMO.
