I have zero faith in blacky anymore. With that said I hope he pitches another 8 innings of 2 run ball.
I think we'll know what kind of day it'll be for Blackburn by the end of the first. Fenway and the Red Sox lineup isn't exactly forgiving of sinkerballers whose sinkers aren't sinking.

Has there been a day with all three of the Twins catchers in the lineup at once yet? Had to be, right?
May 8th and 9th, at home vs LAA, Butera C, Mauer 1B, Doumit DH. (hat tip to BBR)
I stopped looking after finding that, there might be more.
EDIT: 5/13 and 5/14, same thing.

Radio just announced that Valencia was traded to the Red Sox and optioned to AAA.
MLBTradeRumors has Jeremias Pineda coming back, 21 yr old Dominican playing in the GCL. Currently hitting over .400!
Anyone still question whether the Twins were fed up with Valencia?
