    Nice lefty-heavy lineup to take on Kuroda, who was awfully good his last time out.

    Andruw Jones. He's batting seventh and Chavez and Martin are 8 and 9.

    They had better keep scoring runs tonight - 4 in not going to be enough - gonna need 7 or 8

    or 15

    Marquis fits right in. Took to the whole pitch to contact thing like a natural.

    Saved the lead with a DP. Can't win much of anything with these pitching performances.
    Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.

    Nice to see Casilla get another hit. He's now 6 for his last 19 with 1 walk and 1 strikeout.

    Nice 2nd inning for Marquis... would be nice if he can settle down and throw 5 innings tonight. I know, eventually we'll expect more, but for tonight, with all the family there, coming back, having his daughter able to be at the game... the human side has to take over a little. Emotional!

    I sure had my doubts about his ability to come back...but, this is SO GREAT to see. Good for him!

    Morneau has yet to get a hit against lefties this year.

    Yes, because he was always a total strikeout machine up to now.

    Good game so far. Love seeing Morneau hitting the cover off the ball.

    It's 6-4 Twins but man, I tell ya, a 2-run lead feels like a 3-run deficit when we're playing in the Bronx.
