Brock, The lead-in picture wins the award for most hilarious pitching face duo.

Scott Diamond's "OOMPH" face is classic. I stopped trying to find pictures where he wasn't making that face and embraced it.

Diamond, Deduno, Duensing, and DeVries... All of the filler Ds in one series. This rotation is awful.

What's the over/under for the runs scored by the Twins? I'll take the under @ 8 runs.

So far on this road trip (6 games) the Twins have scored 15 runs and 7 of those came in 1 game. So far the have scored: 3,2,1,7,1,1

So I see that Span plans to be in the line-up playing CF tonight. Where's the rest of the line-up (don't mean you, Brock -- can't find it on Twitter either).

The Twins are lagging, as usual. I think Gardy has to be one of the slowest managers in MLB to post a lineup. The Twins almost always post their lineup after the opposing team.

Span is finally back in the lineup. Given how long it was taking for the Twins to post it, I feared the worst.

I wouldn't call it over yet. He will play one game and then get sat for 2 more before going on the DL with a bruised femur.

If the Twins are going to win a game this series - tonight is the night. Oswalt has been awful thus far. Twins plate 11 tonight, led by Morneau's 2HR's and 5 RBI's and Revere going 4 for 6 with 4 runs scored and 2SB's (Fingers Crossed). Final score 11-6 Twins

Diamond has a 2.95 ERA over 19 starts. Leave him out of your "awful" opinion and "filler Ds" cuteness.

Without a doubt. Oswalt has strugggled and if Diamond can keep the ball on the ground, the Twins have a shot tonight.

Does anyone here have any good sites for streaming games? I don't have mlb.tv and am habitually frustrated by not being able to watch the Twins

Outside of MLB.tv I've never found a reliable source. I'd suggest subscribing to that service. twenty bucks a month is pretty cheap for ~25 games.

Yeah I always watch the free game of the day on mlb.com and the quality is fantastic, if I weren't a broke college kid I would pony up the cash

Hate to say it, but Plouffsey has looked pretty brutal since coming back. Not just the lack of hits, but some awful ABs and bad swings. I wonder if the thumb is healthy.

OK I just turned it on right before Diamond got ejected. I didn't see the Mauer HBP. Was it that obvious?
