I'm at work, how do you score one run on 4 hits?

Morneau didn't score from second on a single with two outs? Doumit assumed he would just score and advanced from 1st to third only to find Morneau still standing on the bag?

I was exercising and missed the first inning.

One run, four hits.

I don't even want to know how that happened.

Pretty much sums it up.

Does Mauer need glasses or something? This is getting a little ridiculous.

I wonder if the runner distracted Florimon there.

Was anybody else cringing just a little when Florimon took that pop-up?

I need some help as to why that wasn't an error. Clearly hit his glove. :P

Yeah...not impressed so far, at all. Not a tough play. On a positive note, Gardy assures us confidence is not an issue for Hicksie.

Yeah, but it most likely had nothing to do with Castro.

Too bad. Confidence can be fixed with a couple of base hits. Inability to make contact it a bit tougher and is frequently incurable.

Looking at pitch location, KC is really doing a nice job of hitting corners with good command, just needs to get it down a bit for continued success, but well done sir.

Up and in, up and in, changeup down and away for a tailor made DP. Nice pitch.

Apparently Gladden is not to confident in Hicks. He just said, "here is where we need a ball bounced in the dirt and go back to the backstop to move up these runners".

It took me a minute to why you were using the generic KC to describe Santana's pitch location......didn't dawn on me you might be talking about Correia.

Parker needs to explain how Correia is good to TD. I don't quite get it.

Too soon to say that he is good, but, perhaps, Ryan saw something that we didn't?
