Wonder who will replace Nolasco in the rotation.

I'm guessing the Twins will do some thinking "out of the box" and select Deduno

Who is the oldest pitcher on the 40-man not on the 25-man? <checking....> Kris Johnson.

I am occasionally checking in on the game, have the Twins even come close to scoring?

No Dozier led off with a single. Inexplicably they didn't bunt him into scoring position. Not that it would have mattered.

Inexplicably? I'm not sure why we would be playing for one run in the 1st inning.
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

They've gotten somewhat under 270 feet from scoring, but had to retreat due to the subsequent situation.

The players in today's lineup since June 1 by OPS, (not in order). Anyone wanna guess who is who?

.353
.653
2.056
.657
.759
.794
.636
.537
.556


Whichever is which, with the exception of Arcia they are all lower now.

With Correia on the mound for us? That's just Managing 101. :)

Bunt. I know it's Willingham, but PH if you have to.

Sounds like another reason to be playing for a multiple run inning to me

It is when Escobar's up and you haven't scored a run off this pitcher in 3456 innings.

So barring a disaster the rest of the way, KC will have as many quality starts on the season as Phil Hughes, and one ahead of Gibson (who both do have one less start at this point). Funny what a little patience will do if you let things play out instead of overreacting. Wish we'd score him a couple runs here though.
