The Twins now have the best record in baseball. With their ace going tomorrow, a sweep of Kansas City seems likely. Pavano has given up just two runs in 13 innings this year.

Good call by Gardy, indeed. Thome really came through for the Twins. Rauch has not been lights out like Nathan has been the last several years, but he is getting the job done. Blackburns bad shoulder and Mijares/Neshek makes the pitching staff tenuous. Maybe with a day off the Twins can skip Blackburn once to give him extra rest. I don't think there is an obvious starter at Rochester that's ready-made, but you never know.

Great team...mindful of the gritty '87 squad and multi-talented '91 group, only this one is better than both. Funny thing though, many of us may not have alot of fingernails left and the carpet in front of the tube will show heavy ruts if Rauch continues his Jeff Reardon-like drama in 9th innings. LOL I love the Twins! 1st place start to finish!!!

Even with the good starts, the team needs more innings from a stud like Pavano. Can he go eight? Matt Guerrier needs a day off, or they'll wear him out like they did the last couple years. One or more of the starters has to go eight innings, or the team will start wearing out its best relief pitchers. This is why you keep around guys like Brian Duensing for long relief roles. You can never have too many guys like that.
Imagine the scramble if Guerrier goes down. Twins have too many single-inning specialists. Sooner or later that strategy will cause trouble.
