BREAKING: As noted by every Twin Cities media outlet, Joe Mauer's season is done due to a case of mild pneumonia. Here's LEN3's story.

Still winless since Rilo Kiley broke up.

3-2 with an ERA a tick under 5.00 with Cleveland. The team will be officially eliminated from the playoffs this weekend and only had to offer up a king's ransom in prospects for that honor. It can always be worse, is what I'm saying.

Notes:

  • Shocker in Gloomtown #1: Justin Morneau, openly wondering if his future is as a designated hitter. Good stuff from Joe C.
  • Shocker in Gloomtown #2: Denard Span, openly wondering about his future as a ballplayer. Good stuff from John Shipley.
  • If you're a close reader, or even not much of one except for when it's in your best interest, you'll notice that there's no Mauer in the lineup tonight. (UPDATE: this is because he's been shut down for the year.)
  • UPDATE #2: Danny Valencia is a late scratch with the flu. Luke Hughes is in at third and Brian Dinkelman is at second.

Enjoy the game, everybody.
