It would be damned fun to cause Sox fans some much deserved anxiety with a sweep. Go Twins!

I'd be down with a sweep, but more important to me is a victory on Tuesday. This is where Drew Butera is going to bring his real value. I hope he held a 2 hour class today Instructing the Twins position players on how to attack Liriano when they are at the plate... this should be followed by another 2-4 hour class tomorrow leading up to the game. Yeah, I get that the Liriano trade subject has been beat to death, but it seems obvious that a majority of TD Participants did not like the trade (me included). The fellas need to muster up something special tomorrow and destroy and devour Liriano's start. This is the hair of the dog to those of us who are hung over from the Liriano trade. I am pretty sure we deserve this outcome.

Did you know he's (lower voice and slow down foe emphasis) "two. Hundred. Fifty. Strikeouts."

Way to go, Danny! Wonder if Trevor's thumb is starting to recover at a quicker rate?

Doubt. Danny's got a long ways to go to match Trevor in productivity.

I think Plouffe is just fine. Valencia is playing for his future in the MLB at this point. I never want to see someone fail so hopefully he does well and the Twins can trade him for something this offseason.

I would rather have Danny around on the bench to hit lefties than Butera on the bench to do nothing.

I know, that was said tongue in cheek, but it is human nature to not want your temporary replacement to outshine you in any way. Management might start getting ideas...:)

Watching Youklis hit makes me angry. Why would anyone ever try that and say I'm comfortable.

Yes... No Hitting Coach is going to say... Kevin have you thought about holding the bat with one hand and tilting directly over your head. Seriously... How does a stance become that.

Crazy thought on Velencia.... Turn him into a catcher this off season. He can become that 3rd catcher slash insurance guy. Only play at catcher in emergencies. Otherwise backup at 3rd and first.

Yeah... He has hit very well... No doubt... I can't help but wonder if he could have hit even better with a normal set up.
