    All right, let's get about 3 runs here and turn the 9th into a laugher.

    Let's not talk about skid marks in the bullpen.

    As Dick was saying, the team hasn't had any extra runs in this round of games.

    100 runs 100 RBI for Dozier? Nice thought...

    Re: Burton instead of Fien

    It's a long season. If the Twins are gonna compete, they can't have their bullpen implode in July because 3 guys have gotten all the work.

    Fien has pitched once in 6 days.

    Yes. That shouldn't make him unavailable. Yes, it's a long season. But Fien is the 8th inning guy and he should have been in there.

    Plouffe is way overdue for a HR.

    Couple of hits for Hammer tonight, I think they'll both come up at the same time, Cola goes down and a pitcher.

    I'm not too crazy about seeing Tonkin in a one-run game right now. He's looked shaky.

    I suspect he'll be the pitcher that goes down.

    More interesting (to me) than the tired 'three catchers' trope is the question of which pitcher is sent down to bring up the extra bat for next week. Painful though it sounds, the way Tonkin has been going recently it's probably him. Plus he has options, of course.

    Good deal, the hitting will become instantly much deeper. Hopefully Hammer and Arcia come back mashing
