    Heck.
    But Butera in to pitch!

    This lineup looks awesome. Sans 2B/SS/3B of course

    Think of how deadly they could be once Plouffe comes back.

    I actually dosed off there for awhile. Does that mean I'm old or just like a competitive game?

    Revere with a real nice game.

    This kid is really proving himself.

    Been going back and forth between this cooking and the Olympics, love these type of games, can check in every 10-15 minutes and things keep getting better

    Thats always been how you know Justin is locked in, you can see him get all google eyed when he sees the meatball. It might even be more like a puffer fish with the cheeks. I noticed him doing it a few weeks ago but just missing the pitch, I guess it may be a good indicator. He certainly wasn't doing it in June.

    Nishi 0-5, with 2 errors on a night when every one gets a hit and we score 14 runs. Read into those stats whatever you want.

    Not a real encouraging showing from Nishioka tonight.

    Bennie with his 4th 4 hit game of the year and will soon be 2nd in the batting race. This could be a fun final two months of the season.

    I'm still left wondering what exactly it is (was) that the Twins' scouts see (saw) in Nishioka. Guy still looks like he's brand new to the game.

    I think the quote was multiple eyes. So we can't just blame one guy.

    Bad throw by Carol but how can Nishi not catch that ball?

    Agreed. Tonight it looked like he had never seen a baseball before in his life.

    If Revere could learn to walk he could be a really really good lead off man.

    With him hitting like he is, why the heck would he want to walk more?

    While he is hitting out of his head right now, he should (and is capable) get his OBP up around .400 to take advantage of his speed on the base paths.

    It's hard to walk when pitchers are throwing you nothing but strikes.

    There are two big reasons why Revere doesn't get many chances to walk.

    1. Though he is improving overall, pitchers still aren't worried about giving up anything more than a single to him, his ISO this year is 0.060
    2. Mauer, Willingham, Morneau and Doumit follow him in the lineup.

    If he can somehow develop some power down the road I think he has a shot to pick up a few more walks, but at this point we should be satisfied with what we are getting out of Revere.

    Seeing Morneau's eyes get big when he sees a hanger is one of my favorite things. I predict a big September if he's still here.

    There should be no reason to trade Morneau whatsoever.

    When he's healthy, he is our best player. And it looks like he is getting that back. Keep the top six hitters together (seven if you count Plouffe) and try to get a real SP or two and we might be able to make things interesting next year.
