It's fun to listen to other teams' broadcast teams (radio and television) once in a while - I find I appreciate Dick, Bert, Roy, Cory, Dan and all the rest a lot more afterwords.

I was watching the Mets on TV the other day - I had to turn the channel because the announcers were annoying me so much! Yankees broadcasters don't do much for me either. I like the content from the Yankees radio team, but the voices really put me on edge. (Voice snob alert! emoticon )

Watched the MLB showing of yesterday's game. OMG, the Cleveland broadcasters were booooooooring. They hardly talked in between pitches. We really have a gem of a broadcaster in Dick Bremer, I guess. Upbeat, knows his stuff (obviously does his homework) and his love of baseball really shines through.

That was ugly last night. The Twins have to find some pitching. I'm now officially on the Meyer/Mays bandwagon. emoticon

Yankees-Rangers turned out to be a much more exciting game last night: scoreless until the 13th inning, Rangers score on a solo homer at the top of the 13th, Yankees come back with a small ball run in the bottom of the inning to tie. Chase Headley drives in the winning run in the 14th in his Yankee debut. Good story.

Yes, it was definitely nice to see Willingham homer. Was really excited for Colabello, too - too bad it was just a little foul. (Really wish he'd waited for the call before running the bases.)

Yeah, the Rays have just been beating up on the Twins lately. Lets hope the rest of the homestand goes better.

Nice to see the Hammer go deep last night FTW! I was almost asleep, but managed to get my eyes open to see the ball go into the stands.

It's starting to seem that the Rays are the Twins new nemesis, replacing the Yankees in the 'need a miracle to beat them' category.

Rays pitcher Archer looked about 14 years old, but he pitched well.

Let's hope the Twins can revive against Cleveland.

Well, the home run derby didn't work out too well for our boys Dozier and Morneau, but it was fun to see them.

It was very appropriate, I thought, that the Twins battery got to play the 9th inning of the All Star Game. Way to go Suzuki and Perkins! Unfortunately, Pat Neshek took the loss for the NL - would have loved to see him do well in front of the hometown crowd.

Nice series against the Rockies. Sort of sad to see Morneau and Cuddyer on the other team - especially sad to see Cuddyer in the dugout with his arm in a sling.

Watched the Futures Game today - all 3 Twins representatives did well. Alex Meyer was especially effective. Go future Twins!

I'm going to a Trenton Thunder (AA) game tomorrow afternoon, then coming home to watch Dozier and Morneau in the Home Run Derby.

Cool - where did you find that?

In other news - Twins drop another tough one in Seattle - Correia didn't do too bad, just a couple of solo homers given up, but Iwakuma just killed the Twins' batters. Thought they had a chance there in the 7th, but they couldn't bring it home. emoticon

Hughes is up tonight, but looks like the Mariners have a good young pitcher tonight, too.

Go Twins!

So, two Twins were named to the All Star Team - catcher Kurt Suzuki and closer Glen Perkins. emoticon

Two former Twins were named to the NL All Star team: Carlos Gomez (starting) and Pat Neshek.

Justin Morneau still has a chance to be named to the National League Team - he's one of 5 players on Final Vote ballot. So, VOTE and bring Justin back to Target Field, if only for a day!

Another close one today. Didn't watch (had to see 1776 on TMC!), but kept an eye on the score. Gibson had a bad day again.
I really don't like it when the Twins lose to the Yankees. emoticon

Interesting game last night - pleased the offense actually did well against Tanaka (the most hits and the most runs he's given up in a game this season!), but Hughes had a rough outing. Here's hoping today's game goes better.

Go Twins!

Bad news from the front office - Mauer's oblique strain from last night was bad enough to put him on the disabled list. Guess that ends any debate about him making the All Star team. emoticon

I really hope he's fine after the 15 days and comes back as hot as he's been the past few weeks.

Colabello has been called up - looks like he's been doing well at Rochester, so hopefully he'll show more of what he did in April.

This is getting scary - the Twins really seem to be hitting the skids.

I am really glad to see Mauer hitting like Mauer again, but Dozier needs to get back on pace, as does Escobar. The sluggers need to get a few balls over the fence, too!

Here's hoping the offense can figure out Shields tonight.

Ugh, the pitching has been awful this week!

I did check on your question about rain outs...as far as I can find, the MLB All Star Game has never been canceled due to rain, but the 1990 game at Wrigley had a couple rain delays.

Let's hope Target Field isn't a first!

That's a really good question. I'll do some checking and see if an All Star game has been rained out.
My guess is it would be moved to Wednesday night, since the season doesn't resume until Thursday.

Last night's game was disappointing. Really bad outing for Gibson - you know it's not going to be a good night when the Twins are down 4 runs before they get an out.

With the Twins off tonight, I decided to check out the AAA Red Wings and AA RockCats. The RockCats lost a close game tonight, but they had won 11 straight - not bad!

Nice to see some players who were with the big club (Colabello, Hicks) and some prospects (Rosario).

Seriously - the Twins' starter has a PERFECT GAME through four innings, pitchers only give up one hit through 9 innings - and they LOSE! I think the baseball gods are angry at Minnesota.

Did the Twins forget their bats in Detroit? This is so depressing - the pitchers are finally doing well, and the offense falls apart. Granted, they've faced some good opposing pitchers, but still...

In case you missed it - Kansas City demolished Detroit last night, moving into first place in the AL Central. The White Sox won in San Francisco, so the Twins are alone at the bottom, though still only 5.5 games out. You can't say this season's been boring!

What an ugly game on Saturday.

The Twins have to find a way to fix the pitching. I have a feeling we fans won't have to wait too much longer to see Meyer and/or May in Minnesota.

Speaking of pitching, Vance Worley has a shut out going for the Pirates. Why do they always figure it out after they leave the Twins? emoticon

I agree, Carren. TK has very interesting things to share about the game, but his voice is so soft I tend to zone out a little when he's talking. I like Jack as a broadcaster too--it sounds like he'd done some broadcasting for the Blue Jays last year.

Agreed, Bert is sort of the 'character' of the Twins broadcast, though I do think Jack Morris did a good job. I like what Tom Kelly has to say, but he needs to work on his broadcast voice - he can be a little hard to hear because he doesn't project. (Sorry, voice nerd alert! emoticon )

He has cut back on the amount of broadcasting he does. He didn't do every game last year and this year I think he's only doing the home games, except when they went to California (where he's from).

Good game by the Twins last night! Correia had me worried there, but he not only got out of a jam, he settled down for the rest of the game. Not to mention he made ESPN's 'web gems'!

Hughes is up today - think the Twins can continue their winning ways against the AL East? Wouldn't that be a nice change of pace!

Absolutely. I've seen Neshek a couple times on TV this season - he looks good! So glad he and his wife have found a way to cope with such loss.

I remember how moved I was that the A's wore a patch commemorating Gehrig during that post-season - just another example of how baseball cares for its own.

Monday's wasn't so pleasant, either. Well, maybe the top of the 9th...

By the way, just stumbled upon this story about MN native and former Twin Pat Neshek - thought some of you might like to read it.
