We should all be grateful to Seth and the others who start this thread every day. Does anyone else agree with me that Span should have caught that drive to the wall in the first inning? Pavano pitched out of it, but it looked to me like Span took a very little league looking route.

Willingham had to adjust on a fly in the 1st too - must be something going on with the wind tonight. Still, I've seen Span get those before. I guess with him you tend to expect more.

Fantastic base running and hustle by Mastroianni get Pavano a run in the third. Then Mauer grounds out with two men on. The new guys seem to be providing a needed spark. I am hoping that the veterans will start playing better.

Pavano looking very hittable -- flat, up and in the zone.

Yeah, sadly he gave that up, along with three more so far. They're hitting him hard. Oh my. Look who is up in the pen....

Two on for Dozier and only one out -- we could get back into the game with a couple of hits.

Dick, they did find a shortstop they could stick out there for multiple years......and they traded him away for nothing.

Mauer grounds out to second with runners on 2B and 3B to end the inning. Maybe Mauer needs a day off.

Willingham seems to end up leading off a lot of innings, because Mauer grounded out to end the prior inning. It would be better if Willingham could bat more with men on base.

Zoilo Casanova Versalles! Sadly, he declined after his 1965 (MVP) season.

Mauer does have a .400ish OBP, so he is getting on base for somebody.

That's encouraging. I am hoping that he can do so this inning.

I was thinking more along the lines of Hardy. At least the sentiment behind the Garza/Bartlett deal was good, despite the horrendous result. Hardy just straight up got dumped for nothing, it was moronic right from the get go.

I'll never understand why this team always seems to be in a hurry to dump players at one of the most difficult spots to replace.

Seems like every time we wild pitch someone to 2nd with 2 outs, the next guy gets a hit to score him.
