Burton fell behind one hitter 3-0 before getting the ground out on the dive by Chang, but otherwise a very clean inning. Fastball was 90-91 on the NESN gun, but a nice change up or two.

Parmalee did hit one out at almost the same time in the other game :)

I didn't notice a ton of movement on Burton's fastball.

And a walk... Still no idea why they re-signed Dumatrait. The only interesting thing would be a Dumatrait throwing to Doumit battery, and that just phonetically...

Suffice to say that Burroughs did nothing this inning to reinforce the belief that he'd be a defensive upgrade over Valencia.

Yes, that's the plan, as long as we have people show up. Babs and I were discussing last night when we want to do the first one. She and Andrew are down in Ft Myers, but I may open up a chat at Knuckleballs for the game tomorrow night. That's on TV in Minn, right?

Yes, it's supposed to be on FSN. I'll be around for at least part of that one.

Sorry... Ive got a Big Ten basketball game on TV, the Twins on MLB.tv, following the Twins/Rays on Gameday, and this form thread... a second forum thread is a bridge too far for me :)

He clearly has read the articles about throwing the football, and is scared.
