Nothing, Then Something

I don't have much time to post, so I will just quickly address today's double-header.

*The early game was another pathetic loss in which the Twins were unable to provide any offense to support a great pitching performance by Carlos Silva as the Tigers won 2-1.

*The second game was much nicer. The Twins played well and won 5-2. Justin Morneau had a very nice game, doubling and homering, and hopefully that will give him a boost and let him get back on track. Scott Baker pitched VERY well, going 7 innings and allowing 2 runs on 5 hits while striking out 5 and walking only 1. He was throwing hard, his stuff had good movement, and he showed a clear ability to be able to handle hitters at this level. He deserves to be on the Major League club, and he can help us right now. I think Joe Mays needs to be moved, if he can be.
