    Well, Diamond has matched his season high for walks.

    Hate to say it, but Plouffsey has looked pretty brutal since coming back. Not just the lack of hits, but some awful ABs and bad swings. I wonder if the thumb is healthy.

    OK I just turned it on right before Diamond got ejected. I didn't see the Mauer HBP. Was it that obvious?

    Very nice... Diamond throws a pitch right at Hamiliton's head. Misses. Diamond ejected. Fail.
    It's about time Gardy got ejected.
    EDIT: There was no need for Mauer to be hit (in the neck) because he was in a 3-0 count. Twins just getting back at Texas.

    At any rate, Diamond just earned a little more respect in my book. Just unfortunate it was only 87 mph.

    3-0 count and a fastball right in his upper back. You damn right it was intentional.

    And Diamond gets tossed for a retalitory pitch that doesn't even hit Hamilton and with no warning from Wally Bell.

    So in the end, we lose our pitcher, Hamilton goes unscathed, and Oswalt remains in the game.

    Oswalt lost command on a 3-0 pitch and it hit Mauer in the upper back. It wasnt a direct plunk, more of a glancing blow really. Neither dugout was warned I believe, but then Diamond gets tossed. Ridiculous

    **** it, this team is going nowhere anyway. If I was running the team, the first pitch from Swarzak would've gone right back to Hamilton just like Diamond's.

    iPhone app works well for audio, not bad for video (if signal strength is decent).

    Intentionally hitting Albert Belle has to be the ballsiest thing ever done on a baseball field.

    Things like this are the biggest "downside" of the DH. If Oswalt had to hit, we could drill him in retaliation.
