    I am enjoying this team a ton more than the last two teams. They are much more fun to watch.

    It certainly helps that when you look at a lineup that has at least three regulars/semi-regulars batting at or above .300, a bunch around.250, and only one below .200.

    Last year was beyond dreadful.

    Oh, and not being behind 4-0 after two innings every other game is a nice change also.

    Interesting to hear DickBert talk about the ump inserting himself in the game. Bert's pissed

    Yeah, it's the Angel Hernandez show and we all have to remember he's the star. Now Deduno got the third out, and Hernandez takes off his mask and glares out at him and hopes he looks cross-eyed so he can throw him out. He's the top student in the Joe West School of Egotistical Umpiring.

    Hernandez is another Joe West. He needs to have attention - not a good trait for an ump.

    Deduno seems rattled? Angel Hernandez looks rattled based on his behavior! His gestures to the Twins dugout and to the mound. If Deduno is rattled, it's because of the home plate umpire's behavior. I don't think I've ever see an umpire be so rattled over something so minor. Deduno took a couple of steps towards the dugout on a pitch he thought was strike 3. It was close, but it was a ball.

    Deduno is doing a good job so far.

    Beyond that, he's a lousy umpire.

    Hernandez isn't rattled, he's in control, just the way he wants it.

    No wonder Gardy didn't go pick a fight. Steiny is away from the team. No bench coach.

    I thought I'd never say it, as I prefer selling high- but if you can't orchestrate a trade for a high-ceiling prospect at SS or SP- if you could get him next year at the same price, perhaps they should consider an extension? Even when he inevitably returns to his career norm hitting levels, there's no indication that he can't make a perfect backup defense-first catcher to Pinto.

    Was the Jamie Hersch report regarding Escobar's prep another shot at Hicks?

    Molitor is for this game.

    Whatever would make you think that the broadcasting team would collaborate and orchestrate the "message" that the team wishes to express?

    I stepped away for a minute last inning. What happened between Deduno and Hernandez? Did Deduno argue a call? or just start walking off when he thought he had a strikeout>
