Hmm, if Gardy wanted to play Colabello I might have given Hammer the day off instead of Morney against a very hittable righty. Still, I think we'll tag Harang for 6+.

Scratch that, sounds like Morneau has the flu. Go Twins.

Bremer says that Harrang/Correia both had good outings last time out, so expect a low scoring pitchers duel......with their combined 10+ ERAs. Such a tool

Because Willingham has a lifetime .1053 OPS against Harang. You're right though, this is the game of the series where the Twins could get 10 or more runs (Doumit has a .1091 career OPS, too).

Didn't realize Hammer has such good numbers against him as well. I did see Doumit treats him like a pitching machine.

And down 1-0 with another HR allowed. Blech. EDIT: Down 2-0 with 2 HR allowed.

Tough Play but a Major leaguer should make it. However, I give him full credit for moving his feet and setting up to make the play correctly... That type of thing doesn't happen at the 3B in a Twins Uniform that often.

Interesting combination from the Gene Pool... It would probably produce something along the lines of Carrot Top.

I didn't think it should have been all that tough. Tall hop, but that's a lot easier to deal with than a ball that unexpectedly stays down.

A big league third baseman makes that play almost every time.

Whoever was swingin' the ugly stick when Harang was born caught him on the sweet spot.

lol... I said "a Major leaguer should make that play". I was just happy with the feet movement. When it comes to D... Step one is always step one.

Did Kevin Gorg just say that Colabello is primarily an OF but comfortable @ 1B??
He is the WORST broadcaster in the Twin Cities & that is saying something.

So I have the volume on for the game for the first time in a while. I'm gonna need to keep the sharpened pencils out of reach so they don't end up in my eardrum.
