Thrylos, spit up a little laughing with the "hopefully Liriano can overcome Butera catching" instead of Rivera. Looks like he's doing just fine, an omen, I hope, for the entire year no matter who's catching.


Agreed!!!!

Would Willingham have gotten it?

Morneau's 2B allows us to get back to being excited about Mauer, Morneau, Willingham in the middle of the lineup!

Florimon looks really over-matched at the plate. I suspect that he will be assigned to the minors soon. Nice single by Doumit

Morneau's fly ball out was a foot short off the warning track.

Willingham's ground rule double landed at the Twins' pen and almost got the bullpen catcher (Number 89 - have no idea who that is)

Nice single by Burroughs to get the runs home with 2 outs. Battled a lot of pitches. Great PA.

Manship in and gives up a very long fly ball to Romero Pena (LHB) on the first pitch an 85mph something or another (straight) in the lower middle of the plate

Morneau is really getting a hold of the ball today. Hope this is a sign of things to come.

I think that that 84 mph pitch that Manship threw for a home run was a FB. His off-speed stuff is at 75-76

Thanks. Very solid, again. And the top half of NY's lineup was good today.

Missed a HR by 3 inches... I just do not like Manship's chances to make the team right now. That 84-86 FB velocity on the same gun that got Liriano at 94 is concerning.

If Manship is not hitting much speed? Pass. Sorry dude, but that speed is not going to cut it.

Manship did not get anyone out and allowed 3 runs so far in the inning. Hollimons "error" was a smoked line drive on the 3B line. Announcers said should be a hit. Burton in. Very disappointing outing
