  • Twins vs. Reds, 06/24/2012, 12:10pm

    Coming off a disastrous 6-0 loss last night, both the Twins pitching and offense looks to get back on track behind their wins leader, Scott Diamond. Countering for the Reds is Mike Leake, a righty pitching in his third season with the club. Which Diamond will show up today for Minnesota? Will the offense break out of its slump and score more than twice? When do we get to stop watching Twins pitchers flail at baseballs like a little leaguer?

      Two predictions: 1) It will take six or more runs to win today's game. 2) Somebody who currently has zero homers for the Twins will go deep today.

      I just turned on the game. Did they really just sacrifice in the first inning?

      Please tell me that I misunderstood the split-second clip I saw.

      Mastroinanni hits like a pitcher, I have no issue with it.

      They did it because Revere isn't fast enough to steal second.

      Sure looked like he was bunting for a hit to me.

      Yeah... The was a dumb move no matter how you look at it. You don't play for one run in the first. Let Revere steal second if you think it's that important to get him out of the double play. He'll get there, he's fast enough.

      You know you're a legitimate power threat when the third baseman charges home when you're swinging and still manages to catch the ball you hit over his head.

      After 6 consecutive strikeouts, Plouffe finally gets another home run -- his 15th of the year.
