    Game Thread: Twins@Jays 6/11 11:37AM

    Twins SP: Phil Hughes

    2. Dozier 2B
    3. Mauer 1B
    4. Willingham LF
    5. Morales DH

    9. Gose CF

    Things to Think about:

    Sorry I'm late with this... I got caught up at work on something.

    A little different format...

    Apparently it's OK for Suzuki to Catch a day game after a night game. The Stroman kid is highly ranked prospect for the Blue Jays and he should be fun to watch.

    That's All

    It's also okay to catch a day work after a night game... Work is important.

    And i don't think you were late. Thread existed before game started.

    Yeah, let's see how Nuñez does at his normal position.

    Does it seem Santana gets nearly picked off on every single throw over? He may break Span's record for getting picked off on a regular basis. I noticed his SB percentage was pretty poor in the minors, but I wonder how many of those were spinning his wheels and getting picked off where he wasn't really attempting a steal.

    Wow.

    Is that really 3 games in a row we score 2 runs in the first inning?

    I'm not used to these quick starts.

    Took four batters to score two runs instead of the usual two batters. Mildly concerned.

    This is some vintage Hammerin we're seeing lately. Good to see him bounce back from the DL.

    That's also what Gardy said about playing Florimon there as long as he did!

    Wouldnt it be awesome if Gardy had that sort of Auto-Correct for his lineup Card. He'd put Suzuki in the lineup and it would auto-correct to Pinto.

    If you'd told me 2-3 years ago that we'd have a lineup where Mauer was last in SLG, 6th in OBP, and 7th in AVG, I'd have thought "wow, that must be the first undefeated team in the history of baseball".

    More ducks on the pond - and man, that was a short inning for the Jays, they were swinging pretty early in the count.

    Sharp baserunning by Arcia. Looks like he was living dangerously, but he got back to 2nd on the pick off move and the snap throw from the catcher, and advances on a grounder to 3b.

    But he is stranded at 3rd... Oh well.
