Weird to type this, but I wish Molitor had used Rodney last night over Magill.

Sounds like Mauer is improving and may be back later this week.

I remain hopeful on Buxton and Sano.....but I'd not bet the franchise on them.

Scoreboard watch, Indians up 3-2 on the Astros in the 8th, and the Stros score 6 to go up 8-3.

Hope the magic 8 ball is right, would be nice to get a game back today.

I'll be in Minnesota for the last three games of the upcoming Twins/Indians series, so that's good info since that's likely the last bit of fun I'll be having this summer.

I feel like the twins are a little better than our record. 8 walk offs? Basically almost coin flip games? Our pen isn't awful so that seems rough.

Second, we keep waiting for this team to kick it in. Remember what Cleveland did last year? I feel like they think they have us whenever they want. They're probably right. Don't believe we can hang around and then make a run. We're going to have to hit first place before the break in my opinion just to stay close at the end.

Phil Hughes traded to the Padres!

For a 21 year old catcher! No matter what this young man winds up doing this is the best deal Falvine have ever made. To get anything more than a used puck bag for Hughes is a coup.

They also gave up the 74th pick in the draft.... So no.

Off to a great start, guys!

 

P.S. Dozier swinging at the first pitch is one of the laundry list of reason why I've always not liked him in the leadoff spot.

Insult to injury. Not only is it not the Twins but it's the franchise which must not be named.

The Twins gave up the 74th pick in the draft as well.

If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

Wonder when Denard will get in a game. In this morning's Strib he didn't sound overjoyed to leave T/St. P. I'm sure he appreciates the increased likelihood of postseason baseball but I can see how he was looking forward to spending the rest of his career at home.

Edit: I see he has not been placed on Seattle's 25-man yet.

Rosario! Gets on base hitting a bad pitch. Classic--bad ball hitters swing at a pitch they think they can hit no matter whether it's in the strike zone or not. And then scores from first on a double. Another example of why he's my favorite player on this roster.

Not only that, but it's a team that's nationally televised on a seemingly daily basis.

I love the idea because I'd be sure to win the competition.

So this confirms that your wife doesn't have a TD account?
