    Seems like the current scouting report on Morneau is to give him nothing on the inside and everything on the outside.

    Come on Plouffe. Break the trend!

    C'mon Plouffe, we need a 3-run HR now!

    Look at his front foot and hips when he swinging. There's good reason for that.

    YES!!! Plouffe got at RBI without hitting a homer!

    Trevor Plouffe has transformed himself into a weapon for this team. Never in my lifetime would I have bet on that ever happening.

    2-run single for Plouffe, with him going to two on the throw, works just slightly less well than a three-run homer.

    Come on Ron, call for the sac bunt.

    I love it when we chase the starter after only 4 innings!

    So much fun to be the team that chases a starter in less than 5 innings. And Morneau gets it done with a single through the left side, scoring yet another run. I can see why the Tigers are less than the vaunted team that everyone was making them out to be in the preseason if the Twins can take it to pitchers on a "good" team like this.

    Well this is getting ugly in a hurry.

    Hendriks is kinda showing why he hasn't won a game in the Bigs yet.

    Valencia has two recent multi homer games in Rochester. We should be talking him up and hoping for his success, because that will create an excess of third basemen. If Valencia can continue to impress at Rochester, then some third base hungry contender might want to trade for him

    Plouffe could turn out to be one of the great success stories of all time. He can clearly hit the stew out of the ball. The key will be whether he can sustain his recent success. If so, he can be our Mike Trout.

    I continue to believe that if Hendriks could develop an "out" pitch, he could be a solid starter. I hope that someone is working with him on that. I pray for the day that Parker writes one of his amazing articles about Hendriks with videos that make everything clear.

    Give credit to Swarzak for 2 perfect innings. If he gets the win, then he deserves it.

    The Twins have 11 hits, all singles, and 5 walks -- lots of opportunities.
