    While most the Twins are failing at the plate, Eduardo Escobar somehow is on fire. Does he have enough PAs to be on the batting average leaderboard?

    Can't they just make him stay in the dugout and move on to the next batter instead of wasting thirty seconds of my life?

    Not even close at this point, he's 40-some PA's short right now.

    Where's an error or wild pitch when you need one?

    But the corresponding batting average dip has set right in.

    Another game without two guys eligible to come off the DL, who might give this anemic offense some life. But you don't want to fly four guys across country to maybe win a couple of games. That would be expensive.

    Mauer is really playing average baseball this season. 2 strikeouts today. His average is around .280, and he only has 14 rbis. He certainly is not playing like a superstar. I hope he starts playing that way soon.

    Well, that makes the throwout by Zukesie that much more timely. Kind of cute the way Santana chased it like it wasn't going to be 50+ feet out. Kids...

    I'm glad we threw out the runner trying to steal 2nd...

    Back to a 2 run deficit. (and this time not much the outfielders coulda done.)
