    I was thinking the exact same thing. "How the &%$&$# did he hit THAT out?"

    Morneau used to be one of those guys, BTW. Good times.

    With Capps injured, Perkins would have been "unavailable" (yay for the save statistic). Outside of Perkins, Diamond was the best option against Votto.

    Well that sucked. Twins offense let Diamond down today big time.

    Hey, the guy's probably going to be the NL MVP. We just saw why.

    Yeah, that swing brought back memories of pre-concussion Morneau. That was the first thing I thought when I saw it.

    Flailing at a pitch low and away, looking like he made poor contact, and then the ball travels 300+ feet opposite field.

    Yea--Diamond gets a complete game, but the Twins get a loss. I can't see them scoring off of Chapman.

    Another nice play by Dozier -- now we need a run against the Reds' closer. Wife is pestering me to leave for Costco. I will be in big trouble if this goes to extra innings.

    How would a Glavine comp for Diamond be? I think Glavine had a few more mph on his fastball and a little better stuff, but I don't think that would be a too far fetched goal for Diamond.

    I have the distinct feeling that this half-inning is going to be cringe-worthy.

    Because Mastrioanni was the (26th) best option Gardy had.

    Tom Glavine? Future hall of famer Tom Glavine?

    Diamond threw only 82 pitches in 8 innings today -- pretty impressive.

    Nice hit by Mauer -- now it's Hammer Time.

    I'm not trying to say Diamond will have a career path similar to his, but his pitching style and make-up are pretty similar (I think). I used to watch braves games when I was young and Glavine was in his prime. Maybe I'm wrong, but for some reason Diamond makes me think of Glavine.

    I love it when I'm a pessimistic ass and the team proves me wrong. Beautiful.
