    Yeah I'd say questionable call. He was in triple digits pitch count after 6.

    Burton & Duensing--bullpen doesn't look too bad. Still worried about Perkins and Cappsie, though.

    I do to... Love it... However, that play ended up too close at third. Probably should have stayed At 2nd.

    Agreed, if he were out that would be a huge mistake. Don't make the first or third out at third base.

    That's why, in that situation, you don't let it get to 2 strikes. You look for a ball early in the count that you can elevate to the OF.

    I agree but that was a tough sequence of pitches for Mauer. Willingham hit that ball on the screws. Just to the wrong spot.

    I blame Mauer. That's just pathetic 3-6 batters, and super pathetic for the 3 hole.

    Yeah... I can live with that. For 23 million he has to come through no matter where the ball is located.

    Mauer is supposed to be a #3 hitter. Go ahead run on third, no outs. That's not the first, or second, or third time in this young season that Mauer has failed to drive in a runner from third, often due to an overly passive approach at the plate. OBP is fine, but driving in runs is still a skill in baseball, no matter what drivel the statgeeks like to declare about RBI.

    I can't stand Youklis batting stance. I coach a little baseball. One of my kids tried that thing with his hands. I took the bat out of his hands and beat the kid with it.
