    Willingham sits. Good thing he needs some time off. It would be nice to take this series and creep a little closer.

    Corner OF / 1B / DH is the one area of major-league depth this team currently has. Anybody a little dinged up should not have to play through it. And you're right, it sure look like the Hammer isn't at full strength right now.

    I blame Doumit's framing.

    Why the hell has Doumit been batting third?

    Using 'doug' as a verb and 'fister' as the subject of a sentence is likely a bannable offense. Or one would hope.

    Looking at the rules, the best I can come up with is a weak warning for trolling.

    Speaking of weak, looks like the Twins offense needs a rally avatar already in the 4th inning.

    In running through recent Onion issues, I ran across this graphic that serves well to explain the popularity of our favorite avatar.

    The Twins need to at least break up the perfect game.

    Nice catch by Clete -- but should have thrown to first.

    Doumit, the perfect-game killer.

    BTW, on ESPN today I saw a rerun of their E:60 short feature, "Perfect Game". A really well-crafted film, I thought.

    Mauer guns down Jhonny going to third on a strikeout. Just a hit-and-run, or did they think they'd catch Joe napping with two strikes?

    Dozier, the no-hitter and shutout killer.
