Cool! Taking my nephew from Albuquerque (Big Isotopes fan : ) to the game. Not sure if the Target Field experience can compete with the Topes home turf.

Hmmm... if you're going to start Doumit in the outfield, wouldn't you be better off putting him in right and moving Revere to left?

Morneau is hopeless against a tailing breaking ball from a lefty.

Morneau down to a .753 OPS...hot damn his contract can't end soon enough.

"Watching" this one on GameDay. It doesn't look like Mr. De Vries is fooling many of the Oriole hitters--lots of long fly balls and one that the park couldn't hold.

I'm watching the game. He's not fooling most hitters. A bad sign on the first trip through a lineup.

That homerun was a moon shot.

What are you talking about...he hasn't walked anyone. He's pitching great!!

No outs, two runners on base, Casey At The Bat. I don't have a good feeling about this for some reason.

Thome might hit the Target Center in this at-bat.

Nice pitching adjustments Cole. That's great to see.

The top and bottom of the strike zone seem to be guesswork at best today.

Nice catch by Dozier. That's a tough play.

Uh... there's no way Dozier should have to make that catch, but since "ankle weights" Doumit is in left, he couldn't get there to call him off. Worked this time, but playing with fire with Doumit in the OF.

Good at-bat for Casilla - kept himself in there and finally got the sacrifice.

OK, here we go. Third time through the order. Here's where we see what DeVries is made of today.

OK, what happens to this guy? He has had a couple of All-Star seasons and about three seasons where he is terrible. Injuries, satisfaction from a new contract, luck?

Just saw that Bert Blyleven has responded to Reggie Jackson's comments on whether he belongs in the hall of fame: "God gives us many holes in our body, and he just spoke out of the wrong one. That's the way I look at it." He did say that Jackson called him to apologize and it is now water under the bridge.

Cole looking sharp, leave him in for one more inning.

Good for Bert especially after eviscerating RJ throughout his career.

That quote is amazing

Mauer is hitting the ball very well these days.

I'm also following the Rochester game while I watch the Twins - looks like they are heading into positive territory finally. They are up by 5 in the 6th inning. If they win, they'll be 50-49 on the season.

I would have bet a lot of money Devries wouldn't be pitching in the 6th with a 3-1 lead. I would have lost.

DeVries has really settled down nicely. At 96 pitches, do you send him out for the 7th? He's on a roll right now - 9 straight batters retired.

I wouldn't but if they did I'd hope he would have one VERY short leash.
