    Great play by the Hammer in the 1st inning, throwing out Choo at second base. I love it when Willingham throws someone out.

    If that ground ball to Dozier is a "hit" you might as well do away with official scoring and eliminate the error stat from baseball.

    I could be wrong, but I think that if the fielder fails to touch the ball, the scorer cannot call it an error.

    A rather routine ground ball clanked off Doziers glove. What the hell are you talking about?

    My mistake -- I was talking about Dozier's infield double.

    I expected a Bremergasm over consecutive bunt singles. Rather disappointed in the subdued reaction.

    Give Bremer some time. He is still recovering from working with "Wild Thing" and his disjointed announcing style last evening.

    Two unearned runs off Dozier's error -- not a good inning. This would be a good time to jump on Masterson. Load the bases so Dozier can blast a grand slam to purge his mistakes.

    Indians' announcers are discussing how Mauer's huge contract is handcuffing the Twins.

    Dozier with two infield hits and two errors and should have been charged with a third. I'd like to see him clean it up on defense.

    ?

    What's the story with Dozier? Is he throwing too high, too low, what?

    On Dozier's double--it was definitely a hit, but Lopez' defensive decision cost the Indians a base. I can't see how you can charge Lopez with an error for gambling that the ball would go foul. The Cleveland official scorer apparently has been very lenient. I don't like lenient official scoring because it skews all the stats-hitting fielding and pitching.

    Dozier's good baserunning negated by the "contact play".

    Asdrubel costs himself a knock by diving headfirst into first.
