Most likely just a day off, Mauer has been playing nearly every day for a while and he has started to struggle a bit (past 3-4 games)

Yeah, the Twins haven't had a day off in awhile and I assume that Mauer is just taking a day off to rest.

Joe C at StarTrib said in his lineup write up that Gardenhire said even during the last series (or over the weekend) that Mauer would get a day off on the road trip. Shouldn't be cause for alarm. (Oh please, oh please, oh please...with apologies to Gary Larson for using his material.)

Mauer didn't have a very good series against the WSox. Giving him a day vs. a tough lefty isn't a bad thing. Besides, Gardy said that he wanted Butera to play pretty soon (ugh!).

Of course he's also calling a one hit shutout from a wild pitcher through five innings.

I agree and I would submit that Deduno and Butera deserve a lot of praise for their performances tonight.

And three outs to go with it. :o

If Deduno ever got that fastball across the plate a lot of people could de-angst about Liriano.

I've got the Sawks announcers tonight, they don't even acknowledge his exsistance.

Though, I admit I'm not sure what Jerry Remy is saying half the time.

Can you imagine, your looking at slop the whole game and Perkins comes in, and starts buzzing 97mph fast balls under your chin.

I'm going to periodically talk crap about Dozier more often on here. Seems to work well for the kid.

Yeah, Perkins pitching here makes about as much sense as Jeff Gray pitching in a tie game in the ninth. Don't the Twins have mop-up guys for exactly this type of situation?
