I just checked BB Ref before the game. One of the things they note is record vs. teams above (and below) .500. Anyway, the Twins are 28-16 vs. losing teams and 23-46 vs. team with winning records. Unfortunately, more teams have winning records than losing records.

Double play, a pitcher's best friend. Pelfrey's Best Man. After all, it's a beautiful summer afternoon for a Saturday wedding.

Apparently the White Sox are not aware of the rule that a pitcher can't go out to start another inning when he's past 100 pitches. I assume the Union will lodge a complaint on Rienzo's behalf

Love the Florimon bunt. The Twins way of manufacturing runs is really working out for us....

Sure, but at what cost? 112 pitches, give or take. Oh, the humanity! He'll probably have a poor outing next time, if not already under the surgeon's knife.

Call: Either the Twins score on something other than a home run, or that walk means we're due for one more Twin killing.
