GameChat – Twins @ Indians #2, 6:05, FSN & am1500

It just doesn’t seem in any way equitable to have Punto back in the lineup but to lose Joe Mauer to a bruised heel.  Wilson Ramos will be coming in to share time with Drew Butera.  Not sure how that works with the time that Manship is up taking the place of Blackburn who is dealing with a family emergency and other lineup maneuverings that can only be dreamed up in our oddest dreams.

wow..  that was one of those angst-ridden games that gives you ulcers.  I found myself wishing for a Detroit Circus Tigers moment!  I’m willing to stand by myself on this issue but I believe that the Indians have a better overall team than the Tigers despite the appearance of their rosters.  I am really looking forward to tomorrow’s game!

OH!  and how about that throw from Span to Butera?!?!?!  Little Drew was awfully damn excited about that and he SHOULD BE!  good job man!
