    Yeah, as much fun as it has been to go there about Punto, he was clearly a better ball player when with the Twins than Flerrmoan. Made me a little sad to type that.

    Phil Hughes if we need him to... Our chances weren't going to get any better than that.

    Nice debut for 'Nellie.

    Except for the K of course, but I'm sure Andy can work with him on that.

    Escobar or Santana. They've been telling us how versatile both are for weeks. I don't care if you have to put a $%^ pitcher out there. You're down 3 runs in the 7th and you've scored 2 runs in the last 20 innings.

    Cabrera's like "as long as I don't do that three or four more times, what do I care?"

    But what if Suzuki got hurt in what was almost certainly the last AB of the game? You'd feel pretty silly knowing that your last contribution to the internet right before our planet was consumed internally by a black hole was a knock against the very man who stands on guard against that possibility...

    OK - I'm on the Escobar for short bandwagon. He's looked good in the field and at the plate.

    Escobar with 2 more hits. Hitting .348. I look forward to Florimon starting the next 3 games...

    It makes me very sad to read it.

    I agree about Escobar.. we definitely need to continue giving him innings. He's playing pretty good defensively and at the plate.

    Herrmann on the other hand isn't hitting.

    The Twins have only scored 3 runs in the last two games. It's time to get those bats going again.

    Do you trot Santana out to a corner?

    Mauersie needs to go to the DL.


    on a side note, the first time I typed " Mauersie" auto correct changed it to "Mauer die". I almost left it, but I didn't mean it. He's not a horse, and doesn't need to be put down for a bad back, just rub some dirt on it and rest it.

    At least the pitching seemed decent tonight.

    Thus a bakers dozen is now referred to as a Rider dozen in the rest of Canada.

    You're right about the Bombers, take your shots while you can, I can and will take it, no defense.

    See you on labour day!!

    After three years of futility, that standard applied to the Twins' starting pitching is pretty much the same as the initial one applied to drone strikes, i.e. no civilian casualties.

    That being said, agreed, and tip of cap for the optimism . Happy for Darnell and there was something as uplifting tonight about Twins pitching tonight as having your/your son's Pinewood Derby car finish mid-pack but be voted 'Car with Coolest Hand-painted exhaust flames'.

    Apparently not a single Viking fan commented on this paragraph tonight..

    Hey, that's a great question to be honest. I raise you, can he play outfield? I know he has the speed, but if he can track balls down better than Jason Bartlett, it might be a good way to get his bat and speed in the line up. I just have no idea how good he is at tracking fly balls down.
