Hey Mauer bashers, I officially invite you to enjoy this evening. No hard feelings.

Yes, let's hear all those Mauer bashers now because he certainly looks like he's losing that sweet stroke. Don't forget to bash Ryan for getting a Radke clone in Correia as well...

Correia and Diamond have the potential to be double digit game winners this year. Fun to see a little offense tonight, let's keep it rolling.

Nice to see the bats come alive on a cold night. Good for Arcia to get a hit in his first AB. Don't send him down!

I can't believe they played tonight or that anyone showed up. It was awfully cold. Cali boys couldn't handle it.

Weather at the yard was very comfortable through six. Meanwhile, the Mets sat out another dance in Colorado.

Mauer bashers need to wake up and understand the guy is finally fully healthy after a tough couple of years fighting injury. He is the best defensive catcher in the league, one of the best hitters, and seems to be getting his power stroke back like in his MVP year. I hope he has a huge year and all you naysayers finally get off his case. Maybe you can take cheap shots at Morneau now.

Yes, it was nice win for the Twins; but before people start thinking they are Division contenders, a little reality check. Right now the Angels are struggling as much, if not more, than the Twins, having now lost 7 of their last 10. And the pitcher the Angels had on the mound could hardly be considered anything close to an ace. Joe Blanton actually LOWERED his ERA to 8.59 with tonight's outing. Still, a nice win; and maybe it will help them build their confidence for the rest of the season.

On an evening when many of us were weary after a tragedy in Boston, it was nice for the Twins to go out there and take our minds off it for a little while with a win. Regarding the game, it's tough to nitpick. Maybe another time. Nice win fellas.

It's refreshing to see Mauer play the leading role in a Twins victory, rather than being a blah-zay supporting contributor with a typical two walks and a single.
