1-2-3 for Pavs; good start getting Pujols out (not that people are having problems with that anyway) :)

Drew isn't out of options, but this is his final option year, because he has been sent down to AAA and called back up, so his arbitration status starts next year :|-

No 3 run start tonite; going to need to start scoring more runs in order to keep winning

Valencia is seriously struggling as he flies out to Hunter... have the Twins tried to do anything to help him out of his slump, or are they waiting for him to get bad enough so that they send him down to the minors and bring someone else up?

Twins waste even more chances to score as Komatsu GIDP

Aybar was about a foot in front of the batter's box when he hit that ball.

And first blood goes to the Angels with a double from Trout to score Eybar; Here we go again...

Unusual...E3 by Mauer; not good when your 1b makes a throwing error :( to let another run come in. No luck for the Twins

The "Son of Sal" needs to be captured and put in his rightful place as a Single-A Player or a minor league coach. I must say though, the "Like Father Like Son" saying has some validity in the Butera family.

Butera gets out again...on a groundout; Twins need to start capitalizing on opportunities more, especially with their start to the second inning

Carroll has to be in the league leaders in walks, because it seems like he draws at least one every game and drew one now

I thought we were assured on these very pages Butera would never play.

And another GIDP for the Twins, this time by Span. Ugh.

With this start, Pavano is losing the last of his tradeablility w/him showing his ability to allow opposing hitters to get hits at a prodigious rate

Also, most of the pitches that the Angels are getting hits off of Pavano on are right over the middle of the plate; he isn't locating very well tonight.

There have already been 4 DP's tonight, and Wilson on the Angels grounds into another one

Twins go 1-2-3 with 3 groundouts in the B4th; seeing another low-hit game for the Twins happening before my eyes.

Santana is on a record pace for HR allowed and all the Twins can do is ground out to short. Disappointing.

This game is really moving along. We are in T5; and it has only been an hour since the game started.
