    Anybody else see that foul for Kubes as a moral victory?

    Why change your mind about Pinto PHing for Kubel just because it's tied? Is getting a lead not important?

    Side note: Jason Kubel is a broken man.

    "Uncle," heard muttered by Kubel as he walked back to the dugout.

    It's really kind of sad. He's taken two 3rd strike fastballs right down the middle

    Has Kubel reached his roster bonus yet? Can he be cut mid-game?

    I LOVE thunderstorms ... but so far we had thunder and lightning but appear to be in a dry slot (we're near drought conditions) but finally ...

    glorious rain. It would be lovely if it rained all night.

    And by a chorus of Twins fans.

    This has to be Jason's final game doesn't it?

    Yes, but the Yankees offered to pay the roster bonus to keep him around.

    Random thought...is it coincidence the Yankee GM is named CASHman?

    Discuss between innings.

    This Yankee bullpen is terrific. Hats off to Willy for tying this one up!

    Hicks is going deep here.

    edit: deep into the count.

    Didn't Kubel once hit a 2 run HR to win a game against the Yankees (although at Target Field)?

    I'm sure Ronny G's memories are sharper than mine and that was the basis for his roster move.

    I need somebody who is smarter at baseball then me to explain to me the purpose of Kubel walking up to the plate and doing exactly what everybody knew he was going to do while the man second on the team in dingers watches helplessly as Kubal k's helplessly. Does anybody really believe that it will be Hicks sent down when Fuld comes back and not Kubal released?

    Kubel doesn't look good right now... However... Like I mentioned in the set up... Brian Dozier is now 0-17 and 2-35.

    Slumps can can be deep and they can be broken out of.

    I just don't like the idea of playing through them while you sit someone who could heat up.
