Thanks for noticing.  I didn't.  I try to keep my posting to a slow drawl.  That's how come it's taken this long to get this far.

This game is so bad so far that the only video highlight on mlb.com is Mauer striking out.

Austin really does have a nice swing and he smokes the ball on those sadly somewhat infrequent occasions when he actually hits it.

So... Sano's back in the lineup and 4 for 4 with 4 strikeouts. Boy, it seems he just can't hit anymore. That and he can't stay healthy either.

81 losses... If we win out, do we avoid a losing season? Or is there a postponed game likely not to be made up because there are no post season implications?
