    According to BRef, that's only the 11th time all season Mauer has put a 1-0 or 2-0 pitch in play the entire 2013 season to date.

    That's a pretty amazing thing, IMO.

    You know, I want to blame Pelfrey for everything that goes wrong in his starts, but his stats aren't always historically dreadful (just really bad). He's had some decent starts, though they haven't been long starts. It's just the sense of impending doom, that everything could fall off a cliff in a heartbeat, combined with the sense that even his outs are hard-hit balls.

    I also like Jamey Carroll. That doesn't prevent me from hoping that when Plouffe comes back from Rochester he brings Gibson (or, honestly, any other pitcher) with him, and both Pelfrey and Carroll head off toward the horizon.

    I'm so numb to Dick's near HR call I don't even flinch anymore even if my eyes aren't on the TV. He got his blood pressure up for that last drive by Mauer and it came up 15 feet short of the warning track.

    Carroll's days of being able to play the left side of the infield are rapidly coming to a close, IMO. His arm has gotten pretty weak. The one time they tried him at SS this year it was embarrassing.

    That vesting option on Carroll might keep him on the bench later this season.

    If he had pitched like he had the past few games... He'd be secure... The problem is that he didn't and now he's got Gibson on his tail.

    I just can't imagine a future for the team that features Carroll and Pelfrey, and I'd rather give young guys a chance. I'm not quite there yet on Willingham, partly because we'd be selling low. I don't think the market for C&P is much anyway. Nice guys, but we gotta look toward the future. Especially if Pelf is going to keep killing the bullpen with these 5+ inning starts.

    Delmon struck out against Pelfrey. He owed us that.

    Nine in a row. Apparently Big Pelf wants to stay on the team.

    Arcia should be fun to watch for quite a few years.

    Whoa we scored!!! Sweet!

    Agreed about ex-Twins. I almost always want to see them do well as long as they aren't playing us. DY is an exception for me too.

    Yup, they've already met your quota for tonight. Anything else will be gravy.
