    Mound Visit Transcript:

    Andy: Jeez... They are knocking you around pretty good
    KC: Yeah... I find this whole concept restricting.
    Andy: What'd mean?
    KC: The ump makes me throw strikes or he will call a ball... If I throw a strike... They clobber it.
    Andy: Try throwing lower in the strike zone
    KC: Sure... Why Not... Just keep piling on the restrictions.

    Hopefully Correia lasts long enough to plunk Ortiz with an 84 MPH heater and free his spot in the rotation after being folded in half. Unless the Twins give him a week to respond to unfolding treatment before putting him on the 60 day.

    Are we sure his command is good enough to actually hit Ortiz?

    Any truth to the rumor that Correia has the same groin injury that Pelfrey has? Let me rephrase - Could Andy arrange for the same groin injury to Correia that he gave to Pelfrey so Correia could go on the DL as well? Maybe bring up May for the rotation - since he's on the 40-man.

    Depends. Not watching in HD tonight, so it's hard to see how well his eyelids are breathing.

    It sure sounded that way. When Jamie says it... It sounds like a compliment.

    Escobar limped away from home. The way this season has gone, he might as well be on the 60 day DL

    That struck me as an odd bit as well. It seemed that the goal was to imply that Hicks needed to be more aggressive at the plate, but the choice of words was... unusual.
