(IMPORTANT BREAKING NEWS: Justin Morneau will be out at least six weeks due to surgery to remove a pinched nerve from his neck. One of the options to replace him on an occasional basis in his absence is...Joe Mauer.)
Opinions differ on whether or not it's still happening. Hard to be to too upset about getting shut down by Vogelsong and Lincecum, but if it's still happening, taking 2 of 3 at Miller Park would be nice, right? Right.

Tossers:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2011 - Scott Baker 5-4 14 14 1 0 0 0 91.2 83 34 33 12 24 88 3.24 1.17


Baker was a stone killer last time out against an admittedly weak Padres lineup, striking out 10 in eight dominating innings. Let's see what he can do against a better National League opponent.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2011 - Randy Wolf 5-4 15 15 0 0 0 0 91.1 87 37 32 10 27 68 3.15 1.25


This is Wolf's first start versus the Twins since 2002. For some idea of how long ago that was, it was nine years ago.

Also, he has never admitted to or even been accused of being a wolfman. Still, I would watch for certain lupine qualities if I were anywhere near him during a full moon. Being prepared for a wolfman is the first step in wolfman safety.
