GameChat – Dodgers @ Twins, 7:10pm

Well the Dodgers may have filed for bankruptcy but at least they get to play anyway. And Twins fans (and players) are glad to welcome Matty Guerrier back to town.  And Tosoni is back with the team since Delmon is down – I’m really hoping he hadn’t actually gotten on the plane yet.

Of course the big furor today was caused by the fact that the team has begun to work with Mauer taking grounders at 1B.

Yeah, that action garnered a LOT of discussion back & forth in the blogger/twitter/news media world.  Joe is using Cuddyer’s glove right now but they have apparently ordered him one according to Gardy – he readily admits he’s not ready to go out there yet after a single day of practice but he has said he’ll play wherever they need him.

I’d like to say things can’t get any worse than this, but I’m afraid this team would take that as a challenge to prove me wrong. – JC

  1. It did get a little bit worse, if you count setting new records in the negative sense. The Ethier smash bouncer off Nishioka’s chest was re-ruled a hit, giving the Dodgers 25 of those, and setting a new club record. Not like they needed another one really…
    Good thing they start a new game every day!
