    Forecast is looking pretty iffy for this afternoon in Cedar Rapids. Looking at chances of very strong storms. In fact, this could be the day Iowa ends its record stretch of days without a tornado touching down anywhere in the state (currently at 359 consecutive days, I believe).

    Matt Tomshaw is scheduled to start for the Kernels.

    Gibby ends game with CG shutout on only 93 pitches. He allowed only 3 hits. That is pretty dang impressive. Is this his last start for the Red Wings?

    Given the performance of the Twins' starting staff, I sure hope so.

    The counter is that Gibson has been inconsistent. The counter to that is that given the state of the Twins staff, who cares? Definitely worth an opportunity to see if he can give the staff a shot in the arm.
    Papers...business papers.

    I've been one that wants more consistency from Gibson before going to the Twins. With another piss poor outing by Hernandez, I don't see any reason to leave him in the rotation while Gibson is putting up starts like this. I still want to see consistency, but I feel like he's put together enough great games to give him the nod now. He is still off and on so hopefully that can get straightened out soon. Call him up.
    Do or do not. There is no try.
