GameChat – Twins @ Tigers, 6:05

Sorry Jan, no new word on Punto.  But they are pulling out all the left-handed stops tonight against Verlander.  I really despise this particular lineup but I know it’s going to end up changing as soon as we get to the bullpen… and I hope we get to the bullpen sooner rather than later.

Minnesota @ Detroit
Span, CF   Jackson, A, CF
Hudson, O, 2B   Damon, DH
Mauer, C   Ordonez, RF
Morneau, 1B   Cabrera, M, 1B
Cuddyer, RF   Inge, 3B
Kubel, LF   Raburn, LF
Thome, DH   Laird, C
Hardy, SS   Sizemore, 2B
Harris, B, 3B   Santiago, SS
  Liriano, P     Verlander, P

 

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Minnesota 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 2 5 0
Detroit 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 5 3

 

Wow, was THAT some odd baseball…  a) Span must have been accused of saying something very naughty because he certainly didn’t do anything else to deserve being tossed – especially on a VERY bad call from the ump  b) See what happens to your fielding options when you START with a DH in the OF???  and c) Thome?  and infield base HIT??  really?!?! 

But, chat BOD goes to Franky!  Beautifully pitched game and even though I think that the Detroit radar gun is a TAD suspect, it said Liriano hit 96 mph tonight which is great to see.  And a great big Thank You Very Much to the Detroit Circus Tigers. 

One thought on “GameChat – Twins @ Tigers, 6:05

  1. Liriano was the guest on the radio postgame show. I dont think I have ever heard him speak before. I hope he is on more postgame shows because that means the Twins are winning ballgames!
