GameChat – Mariners @ Twins #3, 1:10 pm

Still no Justin Morneau in the line up today. Joe Mauer takes a turn at first base.

I’m hopeful that we’ll start seeing the Scott Diamond we all hoped we would see one of these starts and it would be nice if it came soon… today would be good.

Let’s see if our guys can salvage a series win over the M’s.

I’ve got some chores to take care of this afternoon, but I hope to be back to catch at least some of the game. – JC

Wow. It’s so much more fun to be on the side administering the beating than the one on the receiving end, isn’t it?

I admit my attention was elsewhere during most of this game, but it seemed like whenever I checked in someone was getting an extra-base hit for the Twins!

It does make for a bit of a challenge to decide who the BOD should be. Six Twins hitters had multiple hits. Three different guys doubled and four guys homered. There was even a triple thrown in there.

Then on the other hand, Scott Diamond and the bullpen throw a shutout!

It was all way too much to sort through so I just decided to go with Brian Dozier. Don’t ask me why, but 3 for 4, a double, a home run, a couple of runs scored and a pair of ribbies isn’t a bad day’s work.
