Joe Mauer is, once again, a Very Good Baseball Player.

Willingham goes deep.

Get Ry Cooder to sing my eulogy.

Let's take a moment to savor the fact that the Twins are playing a day/night doubleheader and Gardenhire did not use Butera to start either game.


Heard Gardy on the pregame for the first game - he's saving Butera for tomorrow for Liriano.

Yeah... You might want to think about keeping that ball down, Cole.

Actually, I was quoting the movie "Major League," the Indians fan in the stand when Wild Thing gave off a mammoth blast.

Oh, hah. I wasn't responding to you... I hadn't read your message until after I posted that message. De Vries was throwing stuff belt high so I made that comment.

Parmalee finally hits one out. Must be somewhat of a relief for him.

A stat just popped up on mlb gamecast that Cole holds hitters to a .160 average through his first 45 pitches, but gives up a .368 average after that. Hopefully that trend doesn't continue today.

Now he needs only 572 more to tie Harmon's total.

Nice work by Mauer there. It would be good to get to the Royals' bullpen early and wear them out so they have no one for tomorrow.

It's catchy. But it might help if he got more homers.

DeVries is not a premium pitcher, but he seems to have better stuff at this point than Blackburn, and it would seem appropriate to let him fill a starter slot to see what he can accomplish.
