given that I am in Detroit this week, I kind of wish this was an away game.

Any reason given for Mauer getting back-to-back days at 1B, Morneau at DH? They winding Mauer down at C to save his legs for the future?

It might have more to do with Mornie needing a little break more than Joe needing time away from catcher.

I could be completely wrong though too.

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

It's a testament to the catching awesome-ness of Doumit.

Drew is on the team why?

Oh yeah, team cheerleader.

Span out another game. Give them about 4 or 5 more before they decide to DL him.

Given what I read this morning, it's not terribly surprising. Why rush him back? May as well be careful with him.

Given that you are in Detroit, doesn't that make it an away game? See what I did there!?!? haha.

Don't rush him back. Just DL him. Get another bat for this extremely thin bench.

If I were to guess. Mauer is a little beat up from playing Catcher. The mini-slump he has been in the last few weeks could be the indicator of that.

There are 18 days until the roster expand. The team is out of the race and Denard will have plenty of opportunities to show he's healthy in September. Call up Parmelee and play him in right, why not?

Is it possibly that Gardy is riding a hot streak by putting out the same lineup? Dozier is sitting a second straight day, I don't think that has happened since his recall.

Mine too, I'm not trying to be negative with my low prediction, in the spirit of this board I'm being a "realist".

SO Cabrera, get Fielder to tap out and fall behind 2-0 to Peralta and serve up a meatball, maddening!

For God's sake just bring up Hendriks and get Duensing back to the pen, he's not a starter, for crying out loud!

Try convincing the braintrust here of that. Dunce's SP ERA is in Blackie territory. What a horrible decision to put him in the rotation. This is embarassing, OK, not Nishi-embarassing, just Blackie-level ineptitude embarassing. Did anyone read Gardy's lips there after Jackson's AB? Not fit for family viewing.

Can't, he's working on some top secret super pitch that can only be taught at AAA.
