    Is anyone concerned that Mauer has 8 Ks in 29 ABs?

    Anyone think Phil is going to pitch a complete game today?

    He's on pace to throw 252 pitches in 9 innings.

    Well at least we are keeping up the chase for most strikeouts by a team in a season.

    On pace for 1620 record is 1935. Always nice to have goals!

    Well, that's an improvement. He was on pace for over 360 after the 1st.

    In addition to the pitch count, the pace for 12 ER's and 9 walks may be an issue.

    Good play to cut it off, terrible relay

    Good news - we have 4 guys in the lineup all hitting over .300 and none of them are named Joe Mauer.

    Bad news - we have 4 guys in the lineup all hitting under .200 and none of them are named Joe Mauer.

    No. He usually starts slow and one of the K's was on a pitch 6 inches outside. I'm finding that the umps are really having a tough time figuring out the strike zone early and so are the batters.

    After the last 3 years I really wish I had these to take before every game!

    Nice job by Herrmann cutting off the gapper. Hoping he and Colabello will continue to give Ron absolutely no reason to play Bartlett in an outfield corner again.

    Well, at least Florimon didn't strike out.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    I'm watching my kid totally dominate on a volleyball court in Italy. I wish I was there for it.

    After 7 straight seasons of swinging strike rates that never exceeded 4.3%, Mauer swung and missed nearly 6% of the time last year, and he's started out this season at 6.9%.

    It's too early to be worried, but it's something to watch. Two percent doesn't sound like much, but over the course of the season it's dozens of additional swings and misses.

    It will be interesting, especially after two more looking K's today, to see if Mauer gets tired of letting umpires still struggling with their strike zones determine the outcomes of his AB's.

    1.) Jesus Christ on Ice Skates is Mauer's approach to hitting frustrating. At bats like his last one make me want to scream at him. His 2nd at bat he jumped on the 1st pitch for a single. Why doesn't he do that more often?!?!?!?

    2.) That base running by Plouffe just made me cringe.
