The Royals are reputed to have the best defense in the AL until they play the Twins! Hey, I couldn't even write my comment before they threw another one away!

(OK, I have the game on the radio and that's Gladden's call)   

 

New board software is slick.

Aaron Hicks just needs a triple for the cycle (okay, okay, I know its the hardest part).

 

Nice night for him but NB is behind 4-2.

Anybody get the Trivia Question? I used BB Ref, but I got it. Three pretty obscure players.

If anybody cares, the Trivia Question was "name the pitchers who won double digit games for both the Athletics and the Twins". I will give the answer in five minutes if anyone wants to guess or research the answer. Hint: Three left handers.

I'm still shocked by the Fuld deal. Would have never guessed Milone as a return.

Today's deadline was looking like a dud league wide but it had some interesting stuff at the end of it.

Would have been pretty ok with Milone for Suzuki (or Willingham, even pre-implosion).

 

Had no idea Fuld had trade value at all, let alone 'late 20's 4th starter with 3 years of team control' value.

 

Seeing the Tigers and A's load up for the pennant race reminded me of teams going for broke when it used to be just East, West, and two playoff teams in the LCS.

 

At least statistically, we just saw Verlander become a fifth starter.Either one or two Tiger starters better than any on the Twins staff will watch the playoffs from the bullpen.

The only one I knew was Rogers.

I think Beane just said... Here take him... I got too many arms... Now give me Fuld so I can move on with my day. And TR just said... Umm... OK.
