    Crazy I know but that would help a little bit against a top lefty...
    You're going to take Revere out of the lineup with the way he's been playing? No no no....

    I don't know, you should ask Ozzie. I'll take a stab at it, because a single w/ RISP results in one or two runs scored?

    I almost included that thinking that someone wouldn't see that I was speaking strictly of ABs as such, without the variables of runners on and outs. Sure, runner on second and 2 outs, pitch around Mauer and walk him if you must. Duh.

    Ramirez is stinking up the place at AAA in the pace of .245/.265/.388 Danny V has been better recently but still his totals are .241/.281/.389. If they need a RH bat, Matt Carson should probably be it, leading AAA with .278/.355/.427 Still not sure whether that is an improvement over Mastroianni, esp. defensively and on the bases. I would like to see Danny V up with the team. I suspect that there will be personnel changes within the next month or so and lots of people would get their opportunities.

    Sorry for the appearances of snark, but I somehow think today the snark level at TD is rising faster than the Mississippi.

    I heartily endorse this idea. Mostly because I already name-dropped Carson earlier. He's swinging a good bat in AAA, is right-handed, and can't possibly be more irritating than Danny V. Send Parms down and call the kid up.

    Also, are we sure Carson is an actual person and not just an attempt by Rene Tosoni to repackage himself?

    He is an actual person but not a "kid" (well, he is a "kid" compared to some of us, but at least not) in baseball terms. He will be 31 soon. And no. He is not Tosoni. He has hair

    I wish that Parmelee was at Rochester getting at bats instead of rotting on the Twins bench.

    I agree -- Revere is red hot and it seems dumb to not play him unless he is injured.

    Good one, my northerly friend. But you and I are also here to add some positive energy!

    I concur, or at the very least let him play a few games - it's not as if Morneau can hit off of lefties this year. Parmelee, in his brief stint up here, hit lefties decently.

    Way to go Span. Let's bat around this inning and make the Sox start wearing down their bullpen some more!

    Hooray, Revere IS in the lineup tonight, at least per gamecast (I am following this at work).

    I'm really hoping for a solid start by Liam tonight. I want this guy to succeed.
