    No stats needed it's true I pointed it out before but we'll take it.

    14 solo shots this season. Correction, 15 including the one he just hit.

    Who would have thought at the beginning of the season that Plouffe would be on track for 35+ homers?

    Looks like Liriano will bring his ERA into the 4s today, if all continues to go well.

    That's the downside of hitting behind Morneau I guess.

    He looks a bit wild today. At this pace he may only be able to go 6 innings.

    That seems like a fair point. Does anyone have a stat about how often Plouffe bats with men on base compared with the league average?

He could go back to struggling and the Twins will give him some time to see if he can get back to what he is doing right now.

    I had my doubts... I still have some... But... Holy Cow... The Job belongs to him... Can anyone argue that? Congrats to Trevor!!!

    Isn't that the case every time he pitches?

    I want to believe this, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. Most fans were saying the same thing about Valencia his rookie year. Things change and too often for the Twins they change for the worse. But let's enjoy his play today and hope that it continue for many years.

    That was also only his 30th rbi, I wonder what the record is on that?

    Valencia has been having some 2 home run games in Rochester, so maybe people will start arguing if Valencia stays hot and Plouffe cools down. Or maybe Valencia can be traded for pitching.

    This seems to confirm that Plouffe is a lot less productive with men on base.

    According to pitchtrax that 3rd called strike on Span was a definite ball. Liriano has had several closer pitches all be called balls.

    I can't believe what Plouffe has turned into over the past month. Amazing.
    I know you're not suggesting this, but, I hope we don't all go through rounds and rounds of criticizing Plouffe because of which situaton he hits most of his home runs in. Dick and Bert were all over this the last couple of days.

    Ok, Butler gets the first Royals hit in the 4th. So close on that prediction.

    I remember there's some player from the 60s or 70s that had a ridiculous HR/RBI ratio. I seem to recall him playing for the Orioles but this is only a vague recollection.

    You were indeed close. Now please predict whether Liriano can get out of this inning without any runs.

    Yeah... Your Right... What was I thinking... Put Casilla over at 3B. Just look at that GDP stat... 6 Double Plays with Men on Base and none with the Bases Empty. No Sacrifices at all with the bases empty either.
