    And that becomes an "earned" run due to the "double."

    Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the earned run rules. Diamond isn't reponsible for that run, and he get's charged with it. And in the 1st inning, Tillman gets off with 1 earned run, even though he gave up 2 hits and a walk following the error.

    Hilarious, usually that stuff happens to the twins.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Random musing while watching a blowout.....roughly how many HR/RBI would Mauer need per year for fans to get off his back about his contract?

    That is a Twins mailbag level question right there.

    Yes it is.


    Speaking of the mailbag, we should have a thread for the best mailbag gems.

    I would guess 20 HR/80 RBI, although I personally think he's done just fine this year - what you can reasonably expect. He's never going to earn $23M/year - we need to move past that as fans.

    I don't know if 80 would do it, you'd still get the "but he doesn't get teh ARH-BEE-EYES!" crowd.


    His production has been excellent this year, 138 OPS+ compared to his career mark of 134.

    When Mauer starts regularly knocking in 110 every year i'll stop feeling vaguely disappointed.

    I know, i know...its not cool to think RBI mean something.

    Will Dick ease up on the incessant slobberfest over Diamond for a few minutes now?
