    Well this game is thoroughly outta hand. Now I am hoping for the little things like Braun breaking a leg, Revere hitting an in the parker. Hot chicks in the stands.

    I would kill to have Braun on the Twins.

    I was skeptical of this signing when it happened, but I figured he'd have his ups and downs and we'd at least get some semi-competent innings out of him. I didn't think he'd be as godawful as he's been (since, oddly enough, his win in Yankee stadium.)

    This might be a good time to let Doumit replace Mauer so Joe can get more rest, and put Mastro and Komatsu in to get some experience. And for the cameras to scan the stands for hot chicks.

    Hooray, Komatsu gets an AB, but strikes out.

    Why hasn't Gardenhire pulled Mauer from the game so he can get more rest?

    This would leave him with only one catcher in reserve for the remainder of the game.

    Haha, watching the Brewers broadcast on MLB.tv and they just talked about how Go-Go Gomez (who, I swear if he would have been drafted by the Twins and developed the way they develop players, could be a good-great MLB player right now) on his rehab assignment took the low-A Brewers team out to dinners, including "Hooters, where we killed over 100 chicken wings" . . . nice to see the dude smiling after a minor career derailment.

    Why in heavens name would duensing be up in the pen? Just let gray stay out there and take his licks.

    Edit...and now duensing is in the game. I don't even want to hear the bullpen is worn out, Gardy. Part of it is your own fault.

    I know! I was shocked to see that. Should have been a "well, this is your last appearance in MLB, so go after it" moment.

    If Baker were healthy, Marquis would be in triple-A. Hendricks/Diamond would have taken the Marquis spot. So Terry Ryan is the worst GM in baseball for signing a bad #5 starter? Bill Smith was responsible for the Capps mess. And if Capps keeps pitching well (8 for 8 in Save opportunities), we will trade him to a contender who needs a closer or setup man.

    Butera on the mound.

    Now I've seen it all.

    Though I'd rather have him starting than Marquis in 5 days.

    and Butera should be coming back out in the ninth.

    Wow, scoreless inning for Butera.

    All we need is a couple of touchdowns with 2-point conversions, and we can get him a W.
