    Damn, another lost opportunity to score a run. When is the last time the Twins put the squeeze play on? It would be nice to see that once in a while.

    Good point my friend. I would like to see that more often. We could have really used that run.

    Great pitching by Diamond today. If by some miracle we were to make the playoffs, I think that he would deserve to start the first game, assuming that he continues to pitch like this.

    Revere on first with no outs. Let's hope Mauer can move him along.

    Indians' announcers are talking about how Mauer's 14 GIDPs leads all of baseball -- time for him to shut them up.

    Fantastic at bat by the Hammer! He hung in with a lot of foul balls until he got something he could hit. We needed that insurance run.

    Diamond was set up pretty well, facing a banged up Cleveland team that struggles mightily against lefthanders. I've thought he was sharper a couple other times, but he keeps making his pitches and getting lots of grounders. I'll take it, but I will LOL about the Twins making the playoffs.

    Three errors by the Twins today, plus Dozier's uncalled error, yet we still have a lead.

    If there had been no errors, Diamond would be working on a shutout. Indians' announcers are admiring Diamond's ability to change speeds.

    Plouffe hitting (if it continues) is huge.

    Nice leadoff double by Plouffe to make up for his error last inning, plus he goes to third on an Indians' error. Plouffe has raised his average today from .176 to .198. A great day for Plouffe. And now he scores a badly needed insurance run on a SF by Casilla.

    I'm not sold on Diamond yet, but it's hard not to be impressed so far. Not overpowering by any means, but certainly good enough to be reasonably successful if he can continue to hit his spots and limit walks. The question, of course, is if he can continue to do that, particularly against RH hitters.

    Super great to see Plouffe finally getting some hits--I think he might soon be leading the team in home runs if he gets the regular plate appearances.

    His windup and delivery is semi-reminiscent of Cliff Lee or a not-so-exaggerated version of Lincecum. I like his chances a lot.

    Diamond also seems to have good composure -- he did not seem to be affected by the multiple fielding errors.
