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

Two straight starts for Drew Butera. This is my nightmare.


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

Update on Thome's current status with the Phillies: 18 AB's, 2 hits, 3 BB's, and a .111 average

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.

Four innings for Pavano. Wow

Pavano gives up another run. We knew what we were getting when we re-signed him: A guy who gives up 16 more runs than we can score, and still manages to work 6+ innings in the process.

Since when is Burnett a long-relief pitcher? Because usually when a SP goes out in the 5th inning, the team goes to a long reliever to take care of 2+ innings.

I guess Pavano's strategy of laying 80 something mph fastballs right down the middle wasn't working.

Another run scores, but at least Pujols was erased from the basepaths

Look at the bright side -- it's looking more and more likely that we will get the #1 draft pick in 2013.

Twins finally score a run, but it comes at the cost of Danny Valencia getting out again

Has Gardy determined whether or not Komatsu has the wheels to steal bases, and will he take advantage of it now he is on 1b with a walk?
