    "Tonight, we can count on at least one thing: the fans at Target Field are going to boo a pitcher."

    If you are talking about Blackburn, I agree there is a good likelihood of that. I'd be shocked if anybody boos Frankie. Why would they? He didn't trade himself.

    It could have something to do with over a half decade of peak-and-valley performance, non-chalant attitude, and general awfulness.

    Liriano will have an okay 6 innings. Per usual he'll be reaching 100 pitches before the end of the 6th.

    Aw man, Revere is not in the Line-up. Even though he bats LH - if he found a way to get on base via a BB or Bunt/Infield Hit and instill fear with his speed. That could really have profound effect on the mental bearings of the White Sux starting pitcher, what his name.

    Bark- mastro runs pretty well himself. If he gets on base I'm sure Frankie will be a little concerned and that could mean a big night from Mauer and Willingham. One thing the twins know and probably why they didn't mind trading him within the division is they know what gets Frankie off track better than anyone.

    Im just concerned that we the 6 runs well get wont be enough tonight

    I haven't been this excited for a Twins game since April.

    How about Gibson today in the GCL 3innings no hits 1 walk and 7K!!! Beautiful line. Also encouraging that he went 3 innings. Hope he feels good tomorrow.

    I know.. Mastro has some quicks himself... Ben seems to have that extra gear and makes some fun stuff happen. My guess is that will take 8 to win it tonight.

    I'm a little surprised Revere isn't in the lineup as well. He actually has a better BA against lefty pitchers. He did steal a bunch last night... maybe he's tired.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Either we're gonna see him give up 8 runs over three innings or throw a 4 hit shutout. It's never middle ground with this guy.

    That is indeed good news. Also, Escobar (part of the fruit of the Liriano trade) had a good game for Rochester.

    Liriano in a White Sox uniform looks really, really strange.

    Hopefully he will be in the shower before the first inning is over.

    Liriano made Mauer look silly on 3 pitches. Not a lot of guys who can do that.
