    Good job. Don't forget your pompoms.

    Enjoy your evening with the Rally Monkey.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Mauer doesn't hit enough home runs.

    Three really good at-bats for Dozier. Maybe the Twins lucked into a good leadoff hitter? Of course, maybe Vargas isn't very good.

    Perhaps it's not the outfield play being overrated, but the infield play being underrated.

    For a nanosecond I had a 5 Castro nightmare.

    There is no bigger crisis for the defense than a popup hit directly at the pitcher.

    Listening to Dick and Bert talk about Sabrmetrics. Bert got into the Hall because of these stats and then implies they are useless? Surprised Dick said he thinks they are useful. He likely knows more about them than Terry Ryan.

    Yeah he seemed to have no idea what he was talking about. He just kind of rambled. "They say that if Trout can keep up his statistics from last year he'll be ah...he'll be the next Mickey Mantle." So there you go...sabermetrics are the things that tell you Mike Trout is a really good baseball player.

    I'm surprised to see Pelfrey get through five after the last couple of innings. Sit him down and get him the win. Mauer's at .382 and Doh-mitt has two hits. Good things happenin.

    I have to admit this sabr stat has me a bit confused.

    After Ramirez remains day-to-day and unable to play for over a week, of course.

    Hicks is the only healthy natural outfielder on the team right now.
