    I think the Twins patience with Burnett is paying off, he's been nearly untouchable the last few weeks.

    He does seem to be having very good stuff lately. Maybe he has been partying with Plouffe.

    OK, Burnett got through it and I needed only one valium.

    Great night for Doumit -- 3 hits, a walk and a HBP -- he's been on base 5 times.

    Ok Gardy, you have Doumit running with two outs in the 9th and Mastro and Casilla on the bench to run and Butera to catch the ninth, yet no pinch running for Doumit?
    Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.

    Way to catch up on that Gardy, now he puts Mastro in to pinch run for Doumit at second.

    At least he did what you suggested -- it just took him longer to think of it.

    If Butera's on the team, I wouldn't mind seeing more of him replacing both Mauer (moving to first, if need be) and Doumit defensively after the 8th.

    It's also fun when he pitches.

    A Delmon Young walk off would have been unbearable.

    Perkins has not been sharp lately but he always seems to get that key strikeout when needed.

    I don't like the idea of creating a blackhole in your lineup should the game get tied up.

    Butera is not enough of a defensive upgrade to justify his bat.

    Always nice to win in Detroit.

    Too bad we dug ourselves into such a deep early hole with the 13-27 start. If we could have managed to play simply bad baseball instead of putrid baseball in that stretch, we'd be right in the mix and feeling very differently about this season.

    I didn't buy into all the pre-season hype with the Tigers. I think a lot of people were so star struck by the big names that they didn't notice some deeper flaws. That said, I think they'll still find a way to win this lousy division and I'd be wary of facing them in the postseason - with Verlander and that lineup, they could be very dangerous.

    What's the deal with Hendriks? I didn't get home until late in the game and he was out by then, and I had to miss most of his earlier outings. Has he shown enough to suggest that he has a brighter future, or are we looking at a fringe MLB player?

    Yes. That's as close as I can tell so far...that one of those is probably true. It's weird.

    Ugly. Hendriks allowed six hits while walking four and throwing 44 out of 81 pitches for strikes. He now has a 7.04 ERA in 38 1/3 innings through eight starts in the majors this year. Opposing batters are hitting .343 with 10 homers against him.

    Just can't make any judgments at this point. He's 23 and he's got less than a full season's worth of innings above Double-A. He's looked bad, no doubt, but his command is superb. He could very well figure things out at some point. Not unusual for a fresh kid to get knocked around by MLB hitters.
