Seth, something is wrong here. I'm assuming either Mauer of Doumit is actually playing first. Two catchers seems a little redundant.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

Plouffe at second against a RHer. Interesting.

should try 2 Catchers when Liriano's pitching.

That is what I assumed. I was hoping someone would make the pun and say "nice catch". Too bad.

Prediction: in there post game, we'll read Blackburn was "too strong" after 10 days off.

Has anyone else noticed the Willingham looks much more passive at the plate the past three games and this AB, rather than attacking pitches?

And why not take another pitch Danny? Put pressure on on struggling pitcher close to being tossed for arguing!

One run on one hit isn't so bad, but Morneau/Doumit/Valencia were definitely thinking only grandslam.
