    The bullpen has struck out more batters than the starters.

    Big deal. There's 8 of them, and only 5 starters.

    ba-dum-tsh.

    I love the idea of the Futures Game, but isn't it "unfair" to have AAA players going against high-A and AA players? Anyone who is/has watched in the past, is there a noticeable difference in skill?

    Did you remember to enter the drawing to win a chance to pitch an inning this game? Looks like everyone's getting a turn before the break.

    Arica picked up a double in last years game coming out of A+, Hicks struck out in his first at bat this year. Talent is talent. There is usually a reason someone is still at the lower levels but this does give them a chance to raise their game. Similar to a Soph playing varsity baseball, some guys can play at a level with older and more polished players, others can't. Roberts thrived in the AFL last year, when for the most part he was playing agasint MLB ready competition.

    Winnah! The ump negated a wonderful play by Dozier, but Perkins had more than enough to retire nearly starless Yanks.

    Enjoyable game - let's have about 20 more in a row like this after the break.

    I would, but that's still too painful to joke about, IMO.

    Wouldn't you know - the best game the Twins have played in a couple of weeks (based on all of your comments) and I had to work the entire time. Just got back in.

    Not sure about pre-surgery, but he had some issues earlier this season. I chalk a lot of it up to TJ recovery...

    Banning's too good for him. That's why we keep him around.
