Tonight's Anthem: "Burn On," Randy Newman

Remember how awful Kansas City looked this week? Cleveland has a worse record, even though they're coming off a semi-successful West Coast road swing. Still, they may need the ghosts of Mel Hall and Jamie Quirk to take a game or two against the surging Twins this weekend.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - Carl Pavano 16-10 27 28 6 2 0 0 197.0 193 79 77 17 33 108 3.52 1.15


DID YOU KNOW? Pavano's road ERA of 3.20 is the fifth-best in the AL.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - Fausto Carmona 11-14 28 28 3 0 0 0 177.2 179 90 80 12 65 99 4.05 1.37


Carmona has lost six straight starts. Twins have beaten him like a rented goalie of late.

Notes:

  • Valencia's back! Congrats to Gardy's BFF Matt Tolbert for ably filling in while Valencia recuperated.
    Anyone think that Mauer catches one of Pavano's next starts so they can get reacquainted before the ALDS? For that matter, does anyone think Drew Butera will even see the field in the playoffs, barring injury?
  • LaVelle promises injury updates on the many, many, many nicked-up Twins in his lineup post, so be on the lookout for those at your preferred media consumption outlet.
  • Really wish the Vikings had won last night.
  • Enjoy the game, everybody.
