    There goes the perfect game. I thought this was going to be the night for Blackburn....oh well, maybe next start.

    I hate Nick Blackburn so much. Have I said that lately?

    Does anyone think we would have gotten the same exact players from Chicago had we traded them Blackburn?

    I don't recall, but it doesn't hurt to say it again.

    First I laughed, then I cried.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Ya know, Blackburn is a terrible pitcher, but I just have a hard time hating him. He seems like a class act and never complains or makes excuses. I'll keep rooting for him to turn it around.

    Liriano with the walk, here comes one more walk and the inevitable meatball down the plate for a 3 run HR

    I doubt that ANY team would take on Blackburn's contract, even for a bag of (old yellow) baseballs.

    But I don't hate Blackburn. I think that he is trying his best.

    Maybe if we included 100% of his contract and a PTBNL

    Blackburn hasn't been that bad thus far.

    If it is any consolation - at least the no hitter is out of play.

    It would be more consolation if a foul ball would hit Ryan in the nuts.

    That pitch was about a foot inside.

    At least Span seemingly has Liriano figured out.

    Twins are putting up a crooked number this inning. I'm calling it.
