    Question: who do you think was the best groundball pitcher in Twins history? I do not have a definitive answer.
    Not sure all time, but Silva had a year where he was one of the best ground ballers in all of baseball. Not one of the best pitchers overall, but his sinker induced GBs all night and all day.

    Silva certainly has to make the list, at least as a one-year wonder.

    What a great throw by Hermann to get the runner at third.

    Some of you can probably remember as well or better than I do, and might disagree, but I remember Jim Kaat as a good groundball pitcher. He had a lot of strikeouts but that was due more to innings pitched than anything else.

    That ball by Thomas was a screamer- let's get something here.

    Did he mean a situation where Carroll was trying to kill an inning by striking out?

    I think Chris Hermann is doing a good job of showing that he can catch, play the outfield, and get some hits. I know he's outperforming his minor league track record, but I like what I'm seeing.

    ...KC...not liking what I'm seeing. He's throwing too many of those balls that scream hey-hey-hit-me as they come in waist-high in the middle of the plate.

    TK is speculating about a Royals hit and run. If I were managing the Royals I would play for the hit hit hit hit hit.

    So instead, they sent the runner and Joe gunned him down. Nice managing!

    I thought for sure Doumit would go at the deadline to make room for Hermann, but I suppose he can still move through waivers after a while. Excited to see Chris get more playing time.

    Boy, Correia has really come back to earth after that decent April. They are hitting line drives all over the place. Take away Hermann's great throw and Mauer's great throw and the Twins are down a ton.

    75 pitches in 5 innings. That is an average of 15 pitches per inning and Correia should pitch 7 innings. Its not his fault that the Twins aren't hitting.

    And Harmon Florimon puts the Twins on the board. Deep right center, over the high wall. Nice shot.

    True, but as I mentioned the Royals ran their way out of two of the first four innings. Florimon also made an above-average play. They deserve to have more than 2 runs.

    He has gotten extremely lucky...let's not pretend he hasn't.

    If anyone is recording the game, that little shot of Florimon smiling at the camera would make an awesome gif.

    Yes Richard, it's an awful time to win a whole bunch of games in a row. It sure would suck to be the Royals right now.

    Yeah, I laughed at that too. Very insightful, in a Richardian sort of way.
