Doumit catching Deduno. I put the over/under on past balls at 3. Any takers?

I wonder if one of these catchers can play left field.

With that lineup I don't see how we can win today. There is absolutely no power in that lineup. It's not good when all 3 of our 20+ HR hitters are not playing.

Looks like gardy got his win last nite & is throwing in the towel vs CC......surprised Butera isnt catching

I voted 'no' again, because every vote that I've made has turned out to be wrong.


Here's to keeping a good (for the team) and bad (for me) streak going.

Irritated eye. Does anyone know what happened?

And more importantly, since when is Deduno's ability to see important to his success on the mound?

Lucky for Deduno they got him out before Yanks crush that 'nasty' stuff that's produced a 4.58ERA.
Duensing actually neutralizes the lefties like Ibanez/Chavez who were only playing due to a righty. Gardy couldnt come up with that idea himself

Apparently he had something going on with his vision where he was having trouble seeing the baseball to the point that he was flinching noticeably even trying to catch soft tosses back to the mound from the catcher/umpire. I'll go ahead and put that near the top of strange events list.

Granderson is really well spoken and eloquent for someone who is like that.

Is this our respecting the game against playoff teams lineup?

May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

I don't even care if he turns out to be terrible, I just want the chance to see it.


Hell, we've had three years of confirmation now that Drew Butera is an epically putrid hitter, why can't we get one month of Slamatime?

Again, I agree 110%. Not bringing him up seems like a travesty from every possible angle.

I suspect that Sabathia and Pettitte will still be able to beat the Twins when they are each 50 years old.

Are they left-handed? Check.


I have to concur.

Samuel Deduno left Wednesday's start against the Twins in the second inning after experiencing left eye irritation.

Deduno tried to convince Ron Gardenhire that he was OK to stay in the game, but he lost that battle. He tossed 1 2/3 scoreless innings before being replaced by Brian Duensing.

I took the afternoon off work, ordered MLB.TV for the rest of the season ($10), and have enjoyed actually watching today's game despite the unfortunate eye problem with Deduno and the bad inning by Duensing.

Is anyone else out there?

Was at the game. Highlight was when the Yankees 3B forgot how many outs there were and started trotting toward the dugout with the ball after a force play at 3rd. He looked around, saw that no one was following, and realized his mistake. They showed a close-up replay on his face - everybody in the stadium could read his lips. Hardest I've laughed at a Twins game all season. A lot of crying, but not many laughs.
