I'm excited to see what Span, M & M, and Parmelee can do against Hunter!

Would be nice if our table setters would make Hunter work a bit

Two ugly swings from Morneau, sandwiched around missing his pitch on 1-1.

Arrieta and now Hunter look like Palmer and McNally thus far

The Twins are going to regret no locking up Liriano when they still could have.

Nice start for Lirano. Nice to see all his pitches early.

It has too be hard for the Twins brass. Liriano has been so polar over his career.

Used to seem that way all the time with Scott Erickson, too. Lights-out first inning would too often translate into the showers by the fifth. Other games he'd struggle in the early innings then cruise into the eighth or ninth. Go figure.

Since everyone is sure another OFer catches the triple yesterday, I'll posit that Doumit catches that HR ball that just cleared the fence.

So proud that the offense currently consists of 9 inch grounders and popups in foul ground with RISP.

Liriano not getting a lot of help here. Valencia needs to get one out on that ground ball.
