Willingham sits. Good thing he needs some time off. It would be nice to take this series and creep a little closer.

Corner OF / 1B / DH is the one area of major-league depth this team currently has. Anybody a little dinged up should not have to play through it. And you're right, it sure look like the Hammer isn't at full strength right now.

After a string of ohfers he's been hot these past three games, with a BA of .273 and an OBP of... uh .273 and a SLG of... gulp .273 for an OPS of... ugh .545... yeah, why is he even the DH?

Using 'doug' as a verb and 'fister' as the subject of a sentence is likely a bannable offense. Or one would hope.

Looking at the rules, the best I can come up with is a weak warning for trolling.

Speaking of weak, looks like the Twins offense needs a rally avatar already in the 4th inning.

In running through recent Onion issues, I ran across this graphic that serves well to explain the popularity of our favorite avatar.

The Twins need to at least break up the perfect game.

Nice catch by Clete -- but should have thrown to first.

Doumit, the perfect-game killer.

BTW, on ESPN today I saw a rerun of their E:60 short feature, "Perfect Game". A really well-crafted film, I thought.

Mauer guns down Jhonny going to third on a strikeout. Just a hit-and-run, or did they think they'd catch Joe napping with two strikes?

Dozier, the no-hitter and shutout killer.
