    Another rocket for an out. The Twins have hit a lot better than one earned run's worth today.

    Looks like it will be Tonkin in the 9th.

    Lineouts: Dozier 1; Mauer 2; Plouffe 1; Suzuki 2; Florimon 2 = 8, by my count.

    The cages I like are down on Western and about 120th. Not my favorite neighborhood, but they are great cages.
    The Dodgers TV/cable deal is the #1 scandal in MLB.

    I dont understand why you dont let Nolasco finish what he started.
    This team is so soft with its pitchers.

    Kubes hit the ball on a line to the warning track in center, too. Nice play by Cain to get there.

    Glad to see Tonkin getting a chance to show his stuff.

    Man does Hicks have trouble with plays he has to go back on. That ball should've been caught.

    Why push it when we don't need to? I don't see the big deal in that and I like the idea of Tonkin getting his feet wet in a low pressure situation.

    Push what?
    The guy is a veteran pitcher and only had 106 easy pitches, he was never really in trouble.

    Looks like i missed a good game, if not a close. (and i thought i'd be here for most of it)

    A Mauer 3 run dinger and a Dozier dinger backed good Nolasco pitching, leastwise from the box score. Anything else of greater excitement? (I always like good fielding, and highlights are less prone to include it. And i guess i'll read the rest of the thread soon enough...)

    1 complete game through 2 full turns of both leagues rotations, no need to push it reward Tonkin for getting up here on short notice.

    Thats why you can't trust the box score alone.
    Florimon carried the team with his defense today.
