When Dunn hit Robertson's slider out last night, I said uh-oh. The pitch was on the outside corner at the knees and he jerked it out with room to spare. The Sox seem to be fearless about getting pitched inside and are taking pitches on the outside corner deep. Blackburn has to pitch inside effectively or it will be batting practice.

So much for reports stating that Plouffe would, once again, "expected to be available tomorrow"....

That bottom third of the lineup day-after-day is downright depressing.

I assume nobody is surprised that Willingham is DHing after his field performance yesterday.

You know it's Twins Baseball to have a guy be day-to-day and sit on the bench for a week, wasting a roster spot only to go on the DL a few days after.

They have already waited too long to send Plouffe to the DL, bet he comes back this weekend after sitting on the bench for a week.

In the pregame, Gardenhire said they were going to give Plouffe tomorrow and if he couldn't swing, he was going to the DL.

I'd rather hear Hawk's Southern fried hick-ass then DickBert continue to make excuses for the Twins and putting down Dunn after he hits another HR against them.

No, you wouldn't. Hawk is ear cancer while DickBert are just a little dense.

Very similar innings. I expect the Sox to match or exceed one run in the first.

Christ lately if he's not hitting it out he's hitting into double plays. Way to make him work Hammer.

I don't mind Hawk at all, maybe cause it's only get to hear it 3-4 times a hear on those WGN games. But I like him, kind refreshing in a weird kinda way.

3 flies outs for Blackburn...that's always a good sign for Blackie.

That sounds vaguely familiar.

Yes, but it can't possibly be the fault of the organization. No one has quoted them in the paper saying "Yeah...we suck" so it's probably not true.

Careful you don't pull a muscle. Stretch out well before reaching that far.

Angel hernandez apparently wants this game to be done early.
