    I don't disagree with something Dave Cameron writes very often, but I think he really missed on this one concerning Diamond in his game preview writeup on USSM.

    He’s probably a decent #5 starter given his strikes and groundballs approach to the game, but he’s not as good as his 2012 numbers look.
    True, he's not as good as his ERA would indicate, but his peripherals are still pretty good, and much better than what you'd expect out of a back of the rotation guy.

    I'm tired of hearing "#4/#5 blah blah blah" guy. Diamond is no world-beater but he has a decent chance of being a good mid-rotation starter. Yes, his strikeout figures are low. Yes, the rest of his peripherals are mediocre. But when combined, he's a pretty good pitcher. Maybe not as good as 2012 makes it seem, but he's still a quality guy who shouldn't collapse like Blackburn as long as he can keep the ball down.

    Also, going to the game tonight. I don't think I've ever seen Diamond pitch live.

    I genuinely want to hear your take afterwards. I've been pulling for the guy all year, it's a great story how the Twins practically fell into a guy ready to step up and be a stopper when all around him is chaos.

    Well, its always good to start with your lead-off hitter on base .... especially when the opponent didn't score in the top of the 1st!BTW,Revere CFMastroianni RFChange after Brock posted the line-ups. How long will Span's shoulder soreness last?

    After you have a good time at the game Brock, please come in here and figure out where the spaces and line breaks went.

    Now, Twins start the no DL game with him again, though doesn't probably matter with Sept. callups soon.

    Denard Span is considered day-to-day with soreness in his right collarbone.

    The injury was originally reported as shoulder soreness. Span has been dealing with soreness in both areas for a couple weeks now, though he returned to play four games over the last week. With roster expansion looming, he won't be placed on the DL.

    You mean something simple that an MRI would have picked up a week ago?

    It pisses me off so much that Revere wanted to bunt there. That is stupid baseball.

    Guys on 2nd & 3rd no outs and they score 1 run. I'm happy. I was sure they wouldn't score at all.
