Well, for the six of us that prefer to watch two bad baseball teams play a meaningless game rather than two bad football teams playing an absolutely meaningless game, I have a couple predictions. Carson will get a hit and Florimon won't. Florimon makes a key error and the Twins bow 5-3.

Let's get Blackburn predictions in: I think 6.2 IP 5 ER

I think both Carson and Floriman reach with a hit.

Morneau gets a 2-run dinger.

Twins win 6-5.

Blackburn with the expected first inning gopher ball. Not that easy to do against Seattle.

On the game thread when Span took his tumble, I posted the real-time thought that we all probably were contemplating- "10 days with Delmon day-to-day, and then a "setback", followed by Parmelee getting the call-up".

Pitch up and in to Mauer...weak flare to left.

Pitch up and in to Jason...drilled to right.

Sigh...

I think we've both commented how Mauer just won't pull the ball, not can't, just won't. Ok, it's very rare.

Just keep running him put there...gotta get your money's worth.

It doesn't sink if you throw 90+

Haven't we been told by experts that throwing a sinker above 91 MPH just won't sink?

Man how predictable was Blackburn getting lit up by Seattle. It's like a trap game in football. (two home runs let up to seattle in two innings classifies as lit up)
