    I just figgered he was pitching well, and when his at bat didn't happen that inning, he would get to pitch another.

    Finished with 86, so likely below 80.

    OK... I Would pulled him. I think Gardy looked away for a second... Looked back and said... "alright let's step up here. Swing the heck outta that thing... Bases loaded go get him... (pause)... What's Diamond doing up there. Scotty what's Diamond doing at the plate. Shoot.. It's a national league game. You gotta get me ready for that... Alright let him pitch a third of an inning more and we will bring in Swarzy".

    Plouffes body language is just horrible. He looks like he's dying inside.

    Diamond was removed for Swarzak in the bottom of the 6th.

    When Mauer does what he is supposed to, this team has a nice lookin offense. Good to see Diamond get another nice start. Should take some pressure off the bullpen (they'll be needed tomorrow and Sunday).

    Brewers have used 6 pitchers already?

    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.
    Been to Vegas many, many times, but almost always in the winter. Wanted to take in a game, there, to add to my list, but based on your review I'll not lose any sleep over never having been there.

    For a while after I retired from the AF, I had the greatest part time job ever. I worked as a stringer for BIS when Tucson was still the AAA team for the Dbacks. Got paid to watch baseball...crossed that off my bucket list. Would do around 50ish games a year. Unfortunately, work situation changed and I had to quit. Minor league baseball is fabulous, even if AAA has become mostly a dumping ground.

    Good

    Good to see Mauer and Morneau hitting. Good work by the pen, specially Swarzek when it was still close. Diamond gets the win, a triple by Revere, etc.

    I was hoping they'd leave him in.

    I agree but... 4 Brewer errors will make an offense look real good. You can't give up extra outs. The Brewers were very kind to us.

    Bad defense and the team packs it in. The pitching... The hitting... Everything and they wait for a new game tomorrow. It's Brewer go thru the motions time.

    Nice winning streak for the Twins tho and we did it without the Butera hot bat.

    Part of the game, we've done it a 100 times this yr. I'm not about to analyze how we scored 11 runs...not this season. Enjoy it cuz it probably won't last much longer.

    We seem to hit Greinke OK so another win is possible.

    I was going to post that 11-3 is the perfect opportunity to get Liriano some work.

    But then I realized it's Liriano, and it's only an 8 run lead.

    Gallardo is inconsistent and we are hot. We could have some sweep mo going into Greinke.
