I still wish we had the opportunity to face RA Dickey in our time in NY but I’ll take Johan. ;)
Of course, the biggest news for Twins fans between yesterday’s game and today is that Brendan Harris was outrighted to Rochester yesterday. For those who don’t follow the terminology, that means he cleared waivers AND accepted the assignment rather than become a free agent. I wish him the best of luck down there and hope he can get his bat back under him. Oddly, instead of another infielder, they brought up Jason Repko. He’s hitting pretty good down there but I admit that I’m a little conflicted in this choice. It means we’re going to see more of Cuddyer at 3B – at least until JJ Hardy comes back. It also means that it could give Span a breather here and there and perhaps less Kubel in the OF when that happens. Span needs the break, I think and anytime there is less Kubel in the OF, the happier I, personally, am.

Blech… first time all season that the Twins have lost four in a row. I’d be happy if it is the only time, please.
