I don't like Butera but thought the Butera bashing was a little thick tonight especially with Twins winning. However... Doumit would have been a great pinch hitting choice, I really hope it wasn't the Mauer playing DH thing. lol...


Butera bashing? There's been more talk of Butera sunshine and rainbows and pots o' gold then Butera bashing.

I didn't even think of that, but now see that that must be the reason.

Nice strikeout of crybaby Adam Dunn. Now let's strike out "Paulie".

A double play would be VERY sweet at this point. I wonder who will pitch the 9th.


Gotta be Burton... My fantasy team is relying on it :D

I'm guessing Burton, unless the Twins add on a few runs (which would be nice), then they could with someone like Burnett or Gray.

I would be happy with that choice. I think that it's good that Burton is getting experience as a closer.

I want a Butera tee shirt with his face superimposed on a leprechaun.

lol... I'll have to read back a few pages but I think someone was blaming Butera for the Sunshine.

I'm personally glad that Butera got the at bat there so we can continue this stimulating and highly educational debate. Also I support Plouffsies opposite field approach lately, if he can remember how to pull pitches when he gets the chance (looking at you, baby jesus) we might have something.

That DOES sound like a pretty fantastic idea..

When that shirt is put to fruition, I fully expect my dollar royalty per shirt sold. What the hell will I do with $5?

I would love to get some runs here -- for insurance and to wear out the White Sox bullpen. Also, it would be nice to give Plouffe another chance at a home run.

Good one. Does it matter at all that Butera did hit a double tonight and Doumit may have an injury?


Of course it matters, that double might be just the thing to get Butera's career OPS above .500.

Is that $5 per shirt, or five shirts at $1?

Good one, rookie. I am putting you down for three tee shirts.

When do teams start bringing in another infielder against Revere?

I'm not sure that Ben wasn't 5 for 5 tonight. Looked safe to me. Close but safe.

That won't help. He's hitting off a tee right now, just beyond all infielders' grasps and right in front off the outfielders. Only thing is to bring in the OF, but then if he hits one in the gap we will see that elusive inside the park homer. ONly thing that would help is a rover, but Revere is hitting to all fields.
