    Bad baserunning has cost the Twins a couple of runs tonight. It's a good thing Dozier came up with that clutch 2-out rbi though.

    Nice hitting by the Twins!! Bad base running but nice hitting, Plouffe's was a great hit. Too bad, if Doom holds up, we're in the lead. Oh well,, let's get Mastro home.

    Stiffler didn't have much of an outing there.

    That was a swell 2-out rally. It's up to the bullpen now to hang some eggs on the board.

    Doumit was robbed!!!

    Doumit should have been SAFE... and would have subsequently scored. His foot was on the bag before he was tagged. Look again at the replay!!! It should now be 6-5 with one out!!!

    That was a sweet 7-6-3 double play! Great relay throw by Dozier.

    That decision looks even worse now that Chicago has retaken then lead.

    Perkins...uffdah. Single on 0-2 to a lefty in Dejesus, then a bomb to the worst player in the history of baseball*.

    *as described by any Cub fan

    edit: and yet another single given up on an 0-2 count. That simply should never happen.

    It definitely was a bad deal for the Cubs, but Soriano has a lot of competition for worst player category. If the Cubs are as desperate to get rid of them as the media reports, some team is going to get a pretty good DH option for the last couple years on his contract with the Cubs on the hook and paying most or all of it (like Zambrano).

    That was two prodigious, Thome-like shots. How many triple-deck-to-left shots have been hit in Target?

    If there's no walk off here, this will be one frustrating loss.

    Ladies and gentlemen. I am feeling the mojo tonight. Morneau or Dozier = Walk Off.

    What horrible luck. If that ball hits a little higher on the wall, that's a double.

    Ouch! Hope you feel better soon. As a favorite movie of mine quotes, "Them summer colds are the worst!"
