    Why was Diamond batting with sacks full and one out?

    Looks like we might have a good pitcher, no matter who is calling the game!
    Guess he gave up his first runs tho...

    Basebal 101

    Idiotic to let Diamond hit with the bases loaded. Perfect situation for Doumit to pinch hit.

    No idea what Gardenhire is thinking. Maybe he's practicing his singing for the radio jingle.

    Letting Diamond hit in the top of the 6th is...questionable.

    To me it signals either.

    A. Over confidence is Diamond.
    B. Under confidence in Bullpen.
    c. Gardy was distracted by an amusing antidote told by Andy.
    d. Irrentioanal fear that is somehow leaves us a catcher short and loss of the DH spot in a national league park.

    Maybe just a little more rest for the pen.

    Looks like Diamond will pitch the 7th with Carrol out.

    Kerry Wood retired today, on a high note. After the Twins win three in a row, can someone mention to Gardenhire what a nice gesture that was for everyone?

    I'd guess he wanted to squeeze another inning or two out of Diamond, with a lead. Unless Diamond hits into a DP there, he doesn't end the inning. With the amount of work the bullpen has been forced into, I can at least understand that rationale. Like I said...in my mind, it's questionable, but certainly not a decision that can't be defended.

    Does the NL have the reentry rule or something?

    I'm fine with it. No big hitters on the bench (Doumit still hurting?) and the pitcher spot coming up two more times in the game and Diamond pitching well anyway...I think with the rest of the starters, he's trying to save the pen a bit more. In hindsight it wasn't worth it, though it may also matter, but most critical post seem to be in hindsight. I don't watch enough NL games, to know the numbers here, but I'm fine with it and am not a major fan of Gardy's strategy overall.

    Anyone know where his pitch count was at the time?

    Chief: Cashman field in Las Vegas is the most dismal place in professional baseball. I force myself to attend one game each year, just to prove to myself that it still sucks.

    Been to seven Cal League games and one at Petco so far this year. Lake Elsinore (Class A, Padres) has a gorgeous stadium and offers a great value. Check out Storm baseball on YouTube to take a look.
