    Coco reverted to Covelli? Cool. Let's see whether Span will revert to Keiunta

    Does Mauer have a high rate of GIDPs this year, or does it just seem that way?

    Denard Span is one of the worst baserunners I've ever seen.

    We saw a bit there why he has so much trouble getting picked off, but that must be the third or fourth time I've seen him run out of the baseline into center field on a double play ball. Is it too much to ask to slide into the bag and try to break it up?

    Maybe he has been instructed to play it safe to avoid another concussion?

    I've never seen Morneau do that, and he's a much bigger concussion risk than Span.

    He must be approaching 10 GIDPs so far this year which is a ridiculously high rate.

    It does appear from the following link that Mauer may be leading the league in GIDPs -- http://www.baseball-reference.com/le..._leagues.shtml

    Incoming picker of nits....


    It would be handy if the start time was included in either the thread title or with the lineups.


    Carry on.

    Jason Marquis is officially a free agent.

    Marquis cleared release waivers on Monday after being designated for assignment by the Twins last week. He posted a brutal 8.47 ERA in seven starts with the Twins but should be able to find an opening somewhere.

    I wish him all the best, but also wish that Twins had not blown $3 million on a poor wager.

    A HR from Mauer right now would tie the game and erase the bad taste from his GIDP. Please, just one HR Joe.

    Nice hit Josh. Now if Justin can hit it deep, we tie the game with a SF, or if he can hit it out, then we get a 2 run lead. Go Twins!

    Check out the stats on Ryan Cook's stats out of the A's bullpen--21 games, 23 IP, 4 hits (.056 BA), no runs, and 0.70 WHIP.

    Yikes.

    You want to know why Dick? 25 plate appearances, that's why lefties have "done so much better" than righties have.

    Another solid performance by Diamond. He is a bright spot.

    For those who are watching the game. What is on the left side of Coco Crisp's Neck? Is it a tattoo of sniper rifle scope with a silver stud piercing in the middle of the scope? If it is, I have never seen that before... not that I am against it, but this is a first.
