Glad to see Willingham batting in the 4 spot tonight. You gotta go with what's working right now, and right now Willingham is batting .419

Can our so-called power lefties (M, M, Doumit) put something together, together tonight? It's about time. Go Twins!

Mauer better pull everything tonight, and keep it off the left-field line: Phil Cuzzi is the third-base umpire tonight.

Willingham @ 3rd, Morneau @ 1st, 2 outs... Doumit has an opportunity to show something. correction: did show something.

Edited by Neinstein, 16 April 2012 - 05:22 PM.
Doumit's hit

How does Valencia even take at-bats that are that awful? It's not like Garcia's up there throwing like Justin Verlander...

Four two-out hits by the Twins: double by Mauer, RBI single for Willingham, single for Morneau, and RBI single for Doumit. Nice hitting by the guys who are supposed to supply it.

Should have been like 4-0 after the first. Attempting to steal in that situation, against the Yanks, with Carrol running, Mauer coming up, followed by 4 and 5 hitters.....I don't get it. You need a lot more than 1 run vs this team.

And Pavano literally could not have coughed that lead up any faster.

Cuzzi is on second according to FSN and MLB box score. Twins have a chance tonight...

Dear Danny Valencia,
I know it is pretty early in the season, I know... but still... either way, you don't want to fall below the Mendoza line.

Stay with us. We still got the lead. But yeah...whatta catch. That's what speed in the OF does. Big moments when those catches are made.

I do to. I think he is motivated to play well. He will be dialed in. Besides his play yesterday forced another start tonight which forced Gardy to play both Catchers and one at DH. That's a huge moment in our Twins development.
