Joe Mauer was scratched from the Twins' starting lineup on Tuesday night because of back spasms.

That would be fine and dandy, if you actually provided information from a confidential source.

You can always count on FSN for some quality analysis, it only took a couple of minutes to be reminded why I skip the pre/post game shows.

"The Royals can really hit"


Yes indeed, they of the 3rd worst runs scored per game mark in the AL.

They have the 3rd best team average in the AL, and are 2nd in 2B and 3B. Last in homers, though, and mid-pack in OPS.

Figures, the Twins can't even go outside the organization to find someone decent to sing a damn song.

Getting shutout by Will Smith. If it's not the pitching then it's the hitting. Err.... it's still the pitching.

Being embarrassed by the Royals. And here I thought myself apathetic since the AS break, but this is pissing me off, especially giving up two triples in LF -- Willingham? For f***'* sake.

I can see why the Twins were so anxious to see more of Luis Perdomo and Alex Burnett, and had no innings to toss Slama's way.

Burnett has allowed 27 runs now, with 25 walks, and 27 strikeouts.


Odd.

Anybody know why the first three runs given up by Diamond, while at first being unearned, became earned like an inning later?

I don't know why they would have ever been considered unearned. There was a wild pitch involved (and an accompanying error on Doumit's throw), but Perez would have scored anyway based on following hits.
