    Twins gave 40 starts last year to guys (including Gibson) with higher xFIP's than VW's 4.76, and 53 more to Pelfrey and Diamond, who were both with a tenth or two of that mark. Looks like his walk rate in AAA this year is between a third and a quarter of what it was with the Twins last year.

    Is there a sadder play in baseball than the home run trot followed by a mad scramble to reach second? VMart should know better, even in a blowout.

    Living in northwest Iowa, though, we about the same coverage for the Huskers as for the Clones and Hawks. Coaches shows for all 3, etc.

    Giving the ball to a fan with two outs and runners on.

    Funny.

    That just happened...

    But it was foul, so it didn't matter.

    Caught the score and some highlights on the way home. Sounds like Plouffe is going to be out a while. Nunez the regular 3B? Or do they recall Robinson?

    It could end being a pitcher. We have more options on the mound. Robinson isn't on the 4o man. If it's not a pitcher... Florimon?

    This may be the ugliest game I've seen in awhile.

    Imagining Dombrowski has been texting Little Caesar about money to get help for the bullpen after every run they've given up today...

    Was about to say this is the ugliest game I've seen in a long time, but then remembered that gem last Sunday vs. the Astros.

    Good time for Mauer's first hit of the day. Also, on word on what's up with Nunez?

    Hunter's non-attempt on the Fryer hit followed by Nunez jogging into third did it for me. Looks from the timing of your post that it was a highlight for you as well. The fact that Nunez is probably injured is just a head start on another clunker tomorrow.

    Joe Mauer: Rally-killer extraordinaire. Why is this guy batting third?

    Hunter doesn't seem to care and I hate that.

    Somebody bought a ticket to watch the game. He makes money from that ticket purchase. Someone is getting ripped off.

    Yeah, a non-out, perchance even a hit, woulda been nice there.

    Oh well.

    We still got an inning, and don't feel like i'm going to far out on a limb in this game to say anything can happen...

    With Nuñez and Plouffe both going out, I think there is a fighting chance that P-Flo returns to the majors. We need more shortstops!
