Mauer 1 for 11 in the series with a walk.

This game's going to have to go into mad extra innings to get that .091 up to .400.

Wow. Nice work Parmelee! One man wrecking crew today (including the misplayed ground rul double).

PARMS, I keep trying to give up on you and you keep making me hang on a little longer.

Just when you think he's dead, Parms 3-4 today.

If Glen can shut the door, I will certainly take 4-5 on this road trip from hell

Re Mauer - I am sure there is more going on behind the scenes, but whenever I hear anyone in the Twins organzation talk about the situation they seem to be crossing their fingers and closing their eyes and doing their best to convince themselves there is nothing seriously wrong and the situation will soon right itself. It almost seems that they are going with if we remain in denial and ignore the situation and do nothing - it will go away and fix itself. Hopefully they are doing more behind the scenes.

Question, if you're John Farrell, do you send Uehara out to pitch the 11th?


I would like to credit myself for jinxing the Sox closer. My work here is done.

Parmelee continues to pay no respect to the pitching today.

By George. I think he's got it!


By Parmelee, I think he's got it!

(Yeah, guess an Escobar hit wasn't as important as i thought it might be)

Now let's see if the pitching can hold it...

Okay, Mr. Perkins.

It's up to you.


Today, you spell Perkins: "Fien."

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

Is that a line from Brokeback Fenway?

The radio says a few guys have some sort of flu bug.

It was probably that big salad he was eating the day he gave the interview on Pinto.

Radio says a flu bug is going through the clubhouse, and it may have bitten Perk.
