Any word on whether we are getting a rainout today? Stuck at work and can't use my tickets, unless they postpone. Keeping my fingers crossed for more rain throughout the day.

It looks like the heavy stuff will be past the Cities by gametime. Right now in Rochester, it is pouring!

I fear that our only salvation today would be a rainout.

If only he and Mauer/Willingham could get hot at the same time.

Lets see how Pavano does. He looked good in the 2nd. Hopefully he can settle down and find his groove

Morneau comes to the plate again (good) with no one on (bad). Got to lay off that low change up. Almost same pitch Mauer GIDP on.

If only the Twins could have kept Cuddyer AND brought in Willingham -- we could be seeing a lot more runs.

Needs to be a bit more patient. We need to get into their pen.

Well, no need to keep following this game now. Will a starting pitcher please stand up?...

Thank God for Delmon Young, who retains enough Twins suckitude to GIDP and get us out of that inning.

Only the rookies seem to be able to give any hope -- Diamond, DeVries and Walters -- and we will be lucky if one of them can keep it up. This is going to be a LONG and unhappy season. I was hoping that we would benefit from playing in a weak division, but the starting pitching is so bad that we would have trouble winning in AAA.

Scherzer strikes out the side. Now let's give up some more runs.

At least Span shows that he can still hit a home run.

The worst part is, the Twins have to keep trotting Pavano out there since he is the only starter who could possibly be traded for someone.

I think that there are lots of contenders for worst part, including having no one better than Pavano to replace him, as well as poor offense, poor defense, and a weak farm system. It seems to me that the only salvation will be to trade everyone over age 30 who can be traded, in an effort to put together a run in 2015 or 2016. In the meantime, we are looking good for high draft picks for a while.

THIRTEEN Twins strikeouts. There should be a rule that after 15 strikeouts we can hit off a tee. And if there are more than 5 strikeouts using the tee, then they should call the game.

Haha. Octavio Dotel was the pitcher I wanted the Twins to sign instead of Capps.

16 flipping strikeouts and no walks. Simply ridiculous. I don't know what else to say.
