    Will he play shortstop in the 9th in place of Florimon? Or will there be some juggling of the infielders?

    The Twins just cannot keep bringing in the relief staff in the 5th and 6th inning every game! The bullpen has been one of the few positives this year, but it's eventually going to bite them. The last trip through the starting rotation has yielded no quality starts. Somebody needs to step up.......

    Nice to see Mauer's BA start to climb. I wish it wasn't at the expense of everyone else on the team

    Run off and Hyde, judging by this game thread.

    Except, there is no run, so far.

    I'm looking forward to the pitching matchup tomorrow. Hughes/Darvish sounds a lot better than Correia/Tepesch. (I have tix for the game, so it had better be better.)

    Meanwhile, don't look now, but Morales's deadline trade value is surely dropping like a rock.

    What I meant was, it would be better to have Mauer's hitting improve AND the rest of the team hit well, rather than Mauer's hitting improve OR the rest of the team perform well.

    I don't really think it's Mauer's fault the hitting has been so terrible when he starts clicking
