Dear Mr.Casilla. I'd like to say sorry to you that I'd said something bad about you earlier this season. Now you've proved to be one of the best this season. Pls. keep on doing what you are doing now. You are my hero now. I cross my fingers this season will make history as "From worst to first" Go Twins ! ! !

Pavano stinks...how could he not get a hit off that clown? Side note, I almost don't want all the "stars" to come back...these AAA guys are fun!

1. Pavano's strength is not with batting, obviously, but I will take exception with him not legging out the ground-out at his third at-bat. That is inexcusable. 2. As the "regulars" get healthy enough to give the team depth again, and options with the line-ups and pitching, is Gardy going to mess up a good thing and starting tinkering?

Thedinger: so you would prefer that pavano hurts himself sprinting and going lnp style into first with the outcome of the game all but certain just to prove he can "get after it"? There is no reason for an AL pitcher to do anything to risk injury running the bases in an 8-0 game or whatever it was at that point.
