GameChat – Twins @ Tigers, 6:08pm


A weekend series in Detroit… this could either be a lot of fun or.. not so much.

In case you missed it, Sam Fuld is officially on the Concussion DL and Nunez has been brought up in his place – plus some other roster news:

All in all, it makes for a bit of the same ol’ same ol’ kind of feeling with the injury bug.

I didn’t get to even listen to anything but the last two innings tonight, but I was pretty much shocked to see the Twins not only scored twice on Justin Verlander, but that Phil Hughes had kept the Tigers off the board for 7 innings. How cool is that combination?

Yes, Perk gave up a run in the 9th, but with the critical strike outs, we’ll let that pass this time.

Kurt Suzuki obviously had a big 2 out, 2 RBI single, but I don’t think there’s any doubt that Hughes is our BOD. – JC
