    Let's hope you are prophetic -- Plouffe up with two men on.

    Is the object to ensure Perkins' arm falls off by the AS break?

    Not many choices tonight and game is too close for Butera to pitch.

    Maybe Ben Revere should work on his bunting.

    That was not a major league bunt attempt.

    We should consider ourselves lucky that Mauer only tapped into a FC, rather than his 13th GIDP of the season.

    Yeah, that was pretty sad. One would think that a big leaguer who can't hit the ball 300 feet would be a pretty darn good bunter.

    I was just feeling lucky for that reason.

    And the luck pays off -- Willingham hits a walk off home run. Hammer time.

    No worries.....Willingham's got it covered.

    The walk-off is something that was badly needed. And if this triggers Willingham getting hot again, that could mean more wins.

    If Mauer, Willingham, Mauer and Doumit could all get hot at the same time, the Twins could score a lot of runs.

    Oakland just isn't a very good team. The Twins aren't really any better, but they're healthier--Cespedes instead of Cougill makes their club look much better. I'm not sold on De Vries, but he kept them off the board. Willingham is a better fit for this team than Cuddy, just because of ABs like he put up in the ninth.
