    Did someone mention perfect game? Does the jinx rule apply if opposing team fans bring up the fact there's a perfect game in progress?. I don't know perfect game protocol. Is there a minimum number of times saying "perfect game" for the perfect game jinx to affect the PERFECT GAME? I would hate to jinx a perfect game. Perfect games are so rare, and there has never been back to back perfect games.

    Not to worry, I'm sure Mauer will bloop one over the SS with one out in the seventh.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Do opposing teams play their LFer shallower for Ben Revere, or Joe Mauer? Discuss.

    Anyone catch Gardy's pregame show??? Said he didnt know Revere was hurt untill he got to the ballpark today?? If there any communication in this organization or what. I didnt see the game Wed but my buddy texted me & said Revere twisted his ankle pretty bad.

    Ullger doin what he did best as 3rd base coach....hold a runner @ 3rd who was off with the pitch, & throw was way off line with a punch/judy hitting Carroll up next.
    Man he's a great coach wherever you put him.

    Revere yes, Mauer no. Mauer still has that sold warning track power to LF, regularly.

    I don't know.... have you seen Doumit run? Between Thome and him I don't know who wins a 50 meter dash. Really.

    Besides which, Doumit couldn't have been "off with the pitch.". Runners on second and third.

    Maybe Thome, Doumit, Willingham, and Morneau can suit up in the costumes and do the "Race Around Target Field." That would be fun to watch and would probably require some oxygen masks!

    Twice Coomer has tried to chalk up Blackburns extreme hittability to "luck,". Both times Bremer has slapped him down. I'm both shocked and impressed, and wouldn't you know it, I'm apparently the only person anywhere still watching this crapfest.
