Nishi looks like he is asking for Divine Intervention to make him a passable player. Sadly, the response he received was "No".

All those walks by Jimenez should be good news for Twins hitters. Assuming the trend of patient at bats continues, I'm hopeful the Twins can take advantage early and put some runs on the board.

Yep. If Jimenez is off at all, it's not hard to see this team chasing him in the fourth inning with 5-6 walks.

Let's hope he's off tonight.

Jimenez and Nolasco stats are pretty similar, so this could be a big scoring game, or a very long one.

What happened on that play? Just curious. It looks horrible but could actually have been a throw from a lower angle and headed for his glove. Could be a pop fly that is headed for his crotch. How about a little context? Funny picture either way. I never criticized getting Nishi especially when it happened. No reason his Japan numbers couldn't have translated better. Getting him wasn't the problem I had but getting rid of Hardy was. Unproven Casilla, Nishi and Valencia made for a very unstable possibility for the infield which proved to be the case.

The look of pain on Nishi's face....priceless. I'm just glad he isn't getting his leg broken.
