    Again, screw the blackout rules. It's not like having the Yankee's/Red Sox as the only game on is really going to make anybody watch it that wasn't already going to. I certainly won't.

    Two games in a row I can't watch. On a weekend. Despite paying for extra innings.

    I am drafting a letter to MLB. And another to my senator. I'm serious. If this p!sses you off, I suggest you do the same.

    I concur, although I wouldn't bother with a Senator-my letter to him will have baseball way on the bottom of the list. I was poking around looking for someone to complain to on MLB.com, the only way to fix it is to have a high compliant level. I'm not sure why paying for extra innings doesn't bypass the blackout rules.

    In general if you are interested check http://www.the506.com/mlbmaps/ for the Saturday blackout stuff. Some of the things I see on this map are just plain dumb.

    Wow! I didn't even know there was a storm there. Sudden flash of lightning, out of nowhere, and the players scattered like they'd heard a gunshot. That was right near the park!

    Boy, if this delay lasts any time, it could screw up a heck-of-a-good start from DeVries - 3 innings, 1 hit, 1 walk, 3K, and excellent control.

    Tim Laudner just made what I thought was an insightful comment in the studio. DeVries is using all his pitches effectively, mixing them up well. He made the point that Deduno didn't do that yesterday, relying too much on the breaking ball, and Texas figured it out.

    I remember earlier this season DeVries had the same problem - too many breaking balls.
    Perhaps DeVries has learned how to pitch smarter in order to have success at the major league level. If so, he might stick around a while.

    I am experiencing the same problem here in California, your neighbor to the west. I really wanted to see Deduno yesterday and DeVries today. And you and I paid a lot for extra innings and we also get the commercials. Sometimes I wish that we had a Menards here, because the commercials make me want to go there.

    We just got Menards here last year, they have become my go-to even though HomeDopet is within walking distance. You would like it.

    it probably wouldnt hurt to mail that same letter to someone in the Twins Front Office. Maybe if enough support building among the ballclubs, Selig will have to give in and change the blackout rules.

    I hate to admit this, but I am so baseball deprived that I have been watching the Yankees-Red Sox game. Fortunately, I was rewarded by watching Jeter drop the most routine pop fly I have ever seen. If Dozier had dropped that one, all of the pitchforks at Menards across Minnesota would be bought tomorrow.

    Well, not only is DeVries back out there, but he's picking up right where he left off - 5 solid innings.

    At last! There's the first run - RBI for Morneau.
