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.

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.

I send him out, with the pen ready for a quick hook.

OK, that's it - I have had it. I am calling for a boycott on all Twins ticket sales until they deep six those amazingly annoying "sorta deep thoughts" commercials.

They are hit and mostly miss for me. I did enjoy the Joe Mauer one though (practical joke one)

Let's hope that Duensing's effectiveness as a reliever has not been compromised.

Half error each to Plouffe and Mauer on that one.

How on earth was that on Mauer? The ball was about seven feet high and two feet left.
