    Well, for the six of us that prefer to watch two bad baseball teams play a meaningless game rather than two bad football teams playing an absolutely meaningless game, I have a couple predictions. Carson will get a hit and Florimon won't. Florimon makes a key error and the Twins bow 5-3.

    Let's get Blackburn predictions in: I think 6.2 IP 5 ER

    I think both Carson and Floriman reach with a hit.

    Morneau gets a 2-run dinger.

    Twins win 6-5.

    Oh Blackie....
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Blackburn with the expected first inning gopher ball. Not that easy to do against Seattle.

    On the game thread when Span took his tumble, I posted the real-time thought that we all probably were contemplating- "10 days with Delmon day-to-day, and then a "setback", followed by Parmelee getting the call-up".

    Pitch up and in to Mauer...weak flare to left.

    Pitch up and in to Jason...drilled to right.

    Sigh...

    I think we've both commented how Mauer just won't pull the ball, not can't, just won't. Ok, it's very rare.

    It doesn't sink if you throw 90+

    Haven't we been told by experts that throwing a sinker above 91 MPH just won't sink?

    Man how predictable was Blackburn getting lit up by Seattle. It's like a trap game in football. (two home runs let up to seattle in two innings classifies as lit up)
