Still 1-0. Diamond looking nice out there.

On a side note, Matt Harvey is absolutely dealing for the Metropolitans tonight.

^^^Funny you should mention that about Harvey. I play The Show once in awhile, and I got him on the Twins. I just missed pitching a perfect game against the Red Sox with him. Lost it in the 9th with one out...but struck out like 14 or so guys. Little did I know the real Harvey pitching great tonight too. Weird.

Doumit knocks it out.....they reviewed it, a fan interfered, but the crew chief leaves it as a homer. Must have looked like the ball would land in the seats anyway, so no harm done.

Funny, I was just talking earlier today about how Doumit just hasn't had any pop in his bat and now he goes yard. Good for him.

I really wish the Twins were on FSN and the Wild were on NBCSN.

Scott Diamond showing Vance Worley what an elite major league pitcher looks like... 7 quality innings in the books, guy was in complete command.

Twins runner on the corners in top of the 8th... hopefully, we tack on a couple runs and secure this win.

Nice to see Diamond pitching a good game. I've always liked him. So glad the Twins got him. Wasn't he a rule 5 guy when we originally got him?

Terrible call by third base ump - Willingham drilled it down the line on that was a FAIR ball!

^^I'm having flashbacks of Mauer's double down the line at Yankee Stadium that was called foul...typical east coast bias those umps are!

Yeah, Rule V pickup from Atlanta in 2010... turns out to be a tremendous transaction for us.

Aaron Hicks SHOULD HERE PLENTY FROM GARDY WITH THAT NONCHALENT BASKET CATCH AND FLIP TO DOZIER - come on, ROOKIE...eek1

A couple notable things in this game:

1.)  How much difficulty these umpires are having, including Jeff Nelson behind the plate.

2.)  How BAD Ciriaco is at third base and how OFTEN the ball is finding him!

Oh, that play was utterly ridiculous... and the umpire was Phil Cuzzi (yep - a back east guy and an obvious NY Yankee fan AND a guy on the take).

RE: May 7th: Twins At Bo Sox (Game In Progress) 


meanwhile down on the farm we are watching a ridiculous game between two real bad ballclubs....we are in the 16th inning...with the Wings blowing the lead in the 9th and again in the 11th. 21 MudHens have struck out and 19 Wings have fanned...remember these two teams played a 19 inning game last year.
But I am not thrilled with the Red Wings these days again...Toledo is a terrible team and we are making them look real good....ergo WE aren't a very good team either. We are literally going thru the motions in extra innings...and it has killed the bullpen.

Twins played really well tonight... can't say the same for the Wild... 

Good to see the bats come out and Diamond had a very solid outing.  These type of games give me false hope, but we've got more wins than last year at this point so it's an improvement... right?
 Meyer and May will be top of the rotation starters by 2015.
