    Good God, can Mauer just tough it out for once in his freaking career? I like the guy plenty and rarely have a bad thing to say about him, but its time for him to actually be a leader and stay on the field as much as possible.

    I'm using a new source for lineups and I'm not 100% sure they're accurate yet.

    I really hope it's not in tonight's case...

    LEN3 cited his own sources for Mauer being unavailble.

    Wouldn't this be the perfect night to be giving Dozier a rest and putting Carroll, the NL vet, at SS against a tough right-handed starter?

    I'm going to give the Twins the benefit of the doubt on Mauer. We don't know just how his leg is progressing. He played with the injury the second half of Sunday's game, and he could barely run by the time they took him out. What good is it having him swing the bat if he can only jog to first? He got booed because he was unable to leg out a double; he get's booed if he's not in the lineup. Kind of a no-win situation for him.

    Only a complete moron would boo Mauer.

    That half inning wasn't exactly awe-inspiring.

    McDonald was acquired via a deadline trade of Octavio Dotel. Maybe Capps can fetch us something similar.

    In other news: after that inning Revere is in a 5-29 slump. Would be nice if he can break loose today.

    This just in: Andrew McCutchen is good.

    We're all cheering for the guys with the "P" on their helmets, right? I sometimes get confused.

    Hendriks dodged a bullet in that inning. It could have been a hell of a lot worse.

    Ballsy move by Doumit.

    How is that Hendricks put up those numbers in AAA?

    Watched the bench reaction, I think Jamey just reminded Gardy that this would have been the right move (he said...as he slapped himself on the back...).

    The single, simple thing most likely to keep Mauer on the field--and at his most productive--is to move him off catcher. Should have been done years ago. Paying $23M/yr to a catcher, where the player cannot under any circumstances play his position every day, and where he's also most likely to get injured, suffer long term debilitation, and hit the least--is and always was idiocy, despite what FANGRAPHS tries to tell you with WAR or some other poorly thought out crap.

    Damn it, Morneau. He throws you three outside the zone and then you roll over on one.
