Hey, nice to see Punto again, as long he is on the other side.

Hope the bullpen can hold up for DeVries; they have been f%%%ing him over in his last five starts.

Better get it done with the first five tonight...though I like Caroll for a big hit.

Wow, from that list they just showed on FSN, one can only conclude that there is great pitching in the A.L. Central ...blech.

Twins Baseball inning...2 infield hits and a throwing error on a pick off attempt to score a run.

Would it kill Mauer to turn on a pitch once a month or so?

Don't forget the throw going off the runner on the second infield hit.

How often does it happen that there are two errors by the pitcher trying to pick off two different runners?

Why Willingham here? You need a single not home run. Save Willingham for Casilla and Carroll. Let Mastrionni hit here.

And it's a bad Defensive move.

I'm scratching my head over that decision as well. Maybe Mastrionni shouldn't be batting 6th if he needs to be pinch hit for in that situation.

Bases loaded, nobody out, 4-5-6 hitters up. I guess we should be happy they got a run out of it.

On the bright side, the Twins have Casilla, Dozier, and Carroll due up in the 9th. All hope is not lost!

Didn't really matter though ... pretty sure that home run would have been over every left fielders head.

I guess you have your answer as to why Mastro was in the 6 hole.

Would be nice if a pinch hitter was sitting on his arse in the dugout rather than Drew Butera.

But isn't it more important to have an emergency backstop in the extremely unlikely event both your catchers get hurt in the same game?

How do you expect him to whisper all the way from Rochester?

That'll do.

Who else was muttering when he took the 2-0 fastball?

Yup, especially when I thought ball three was going to ring him up.

Took a lot of guts to lay off the 2-2 pitch just before.
