Hope he knows how to make a safe pivot now.

If Nishi and Morneau were to collide in the dugout, who would win?

PS. Not allowed to answer "Twins Fans". Too easy.

Is this the same Nishi that couldn't hit or field last year? He has to be better than last year, right?

Good question. I'm going with Morneau as long as he doesn't hit his head or wrist. If those two areas are in play, I'd call it a draw.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

On the upside, he really can't be much worse, can he?

Morneau; he is a Canadian who used to play hockey and I would imagine be able to lay down a solid check on a shrimp like Nishi.

Oh hey, Jim Joyce is behind the plate. While I don't mind him behind the plate, I'm not a fan of how loud he is.

I hear his bat more than makes up for his puke inducing defense.

It was definitely an inning. That's about all I can say.

Can anyone give me commentary on the homers? I'm following the game by internet on mlb.com.

This inning has been good for the team slugging percentage.

Why play an extreme shift, then throw a bunch of pitches on the outer half that are just begging to be hit the other way?

The Hammer's was very long to left field. Moreau hit his about 10 rows deep in right centerish. Both were obviously home runs coming off the bat.
