Is there a stat for most solo home runs by a team?


Yes... Matter of fact... There is a probably a stat for most solo home runs by a team wearing blue on a Thursday in June following a night game with a team whose average height is less than 6 foot.

I know this is a bit premature, and it assume the absence of a Twins-typical 6th inning meltdown by a starter, but do you think we can get 7 full from Diamond today?

They do seem to baby Diamond a little but if the Twins keep adding to the cushion. Gardy may give the pen a little break.

I blame IdahoPilgrim. He jinxed Diamond AND put negativity into the universe at the same time.

Allow me to consult my crystal ball of hindsight...


...I'm going to have to go with a pretty resounding 'no' on that one.

Dunn... May have gotten... The Bullpen Coach Cuellar to say on the phone...

"Yes Yes... They are up and loosening as fast as they can... Calling me again isn't going to help things... Swarzak is up... Relax... Unless you got a magic arm loosening pill... We are doing the best we can... Quit calling me every five seconds".

Well, there goes Scotty's "quality start." Maybe they should change the stat just for the Twins - make it 5 innings instead of 6.
