Twins are in for a tough one tonight against David Price. Like most great pitchers we will have to get to him early.

Against David Price, Span, and Doumit will have the night off, but we do have Butera catching Blackburn. I will convince myself, that I am going to the park to see the Rays and Joe Maddon.

Butera in ...Doumit out vs David Price. Hmmmm have talked about Gardy 'not trying' to win. This is a decent example.

Let's see if Anderson whispered some magic between innings since Butera obviously idn't in the 1st.

Masty, 1-1 in his career agasnt price. He's growing on me as a quality 4th outfielder.

At this point which is worst, paying Blackburn 4.5 million or Nishi 3 million?

Good question, I guess I would say that Backie pitched well enough for us in the past to deserve a contract, maybe not the 4.5 he got, but he has pitched well for us. Nishi has done nothing in my mind to deserve his contract.

So I feel worse about Nishi's contract.

Blackie doesn't seem to be fooling BJ upton with anything he is throwing up there.

there we go.....Blackie was one pitch away from actually havin an above average start (3er in 5IP....5.4 ERA) but BJ got him back to a game ERA of 7.8 (average start which is amazing) That is if he gets another out.

I'll try this one, for tonight, Nishi is more valuable to the Twins than Blackie, only because he's planted in the dugout.

How about worse than either of these two, Blackie getting his contract raise next year to $5.5M?

Those are nice to watch and it's a big improvement on last season. Of course, the Twins must be near or at the top in DP opportunities, too.

I'm surprised no one has commented on Revere's assist at 2B. I know it's baby step improvement, but still an impressive throw compared to previous attempts.
