If anyone accidentally ingests something harmful in the next 3 hours, at least they'll have this game to induce vomitting.

There is no May and Mayer. They're made up.

Actually hasn't been too bad yet today. Of course, I'm watching it out of the corner of my eye, just to cut down on exposure a little.

Good advice, probably best not to stare directly at it.

Another lively game thread.

Seems like only a couple years ago the Twins were the talk of the town.

Wait...it was only a couple years ago.

That's why you have to move the runners, Ben.

While I would agree he should be able to get the bunt down if asked, I would prefer he not be asked...in the THIRD INNING!

Given their offense recently, I think they should scratch to get a run no matter what inning it is. It could be the game winner.

OT - Congrats to Elizabethton for winning their playoff opener tonight on the road. Berrios one hit through six innings with 7 K's. Elizabethton wins 4-0.

Figures. I don't watch what is becoming the only watchable Twins game in a week. What the hell is going on here? Plouffe homers, Deduno K's six, walks none, and the Twins post five runs.

Good AB by Plouffsie, although he didn't get the payoff.

Holy s$%%^, is Deduno really working on a two-hitter? With no walks through 7 innings? And 9 K's? And the Twins have scored more than 1 run? Whaaaaaa? See, this is the kinda production we should be having erray game. Go Plouffe and Willinghammer! (and Deduno)

Remember when Smoak was the headline return for Cliff Lee? A little cautionary tale for those who advocate dumping good players for prospects.
