With Farmer out of the game in the 2nd, I wonder what Ausmus's plan for the bullpen is. Hope for complete games, I guess.

Hitting is contagious.

 

(After Parmelee)... or not.

Somebody's got to do it, or they won't get the second game in for our pubber's.

I am waiting for a long ball to say "home plate is scoring position".

 

I want to say that attitude was attributed to Kirby Puckett. 

 

For full disclosure though, Dozier was running on the full count pitch to Mauer with 1 out when he scored on an ordinary single (which is what it's supposed to take to score when in scoring position)

 

But yeah, i don't know what to do with myself with these big leads...

Schafer and Nunez can really motor. I like having bench players with that skill.

I hate to say it, but Pino looks pretty good.

If anybody can figure out what Ausmus is doing, please let me know. I'll take Gardy any day of the week.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say Santana and Vargas are here to stay.

I guess Barrio doesn't have wi-fi or something... :)

Dick just said "Nobody expects the Twins to score 29 runs every two games."

He must not be a member here.

I'm going to shut up about Schafer being in the lineup now. Man, these guys are just exploding with hits. It's been awhile since the last stretch of fun games to watch until now.

an error and a very lucky hit (and Parmalee's lack of speed) and Pino is pitching in bad luck and having to throw too many pitches this inning. :(
