    I agree. This gives them a chance to sit their starters tomorrow and give the bench players some time. And who knows, we might win that one too...

    Nice defensive play by Diamond. I think the best thing about Diamond might be that he is as cool as a cucumber.

    I've noticed that as well. When the infield botches a play, or when the umpire shafts him by calling time at the last moment, he's able to shake it off.

    He's probably the one pitcher we have who would even be under consideration, but I can't see us getting more than the required 1 slot, and I think you have to give that to Willingham.

    I wonder if all those Cubs fans at Target Field are having a good time so far.

    They had an off day Thursday. Off day Monday. And you want to sit people Sunday?

    It's not about resting the starters, but about getting the bench players playing time. I do think there is value in that when you've already won the series.

    Probably about as much fun as I had at Angels' Stadium watching Weaver no hit the Twins last month. I hated that.

    15 hits through 6 innings. That is pretty awesome.

    It looks like a couple of starters are out of the game now. Interesting that Mauer's still in there though..

    Yeah and it's not like anybody has been buried on the bench, nor do I care if Butera ever sees the field.
