For those watching (is anyone?), does Holland look as good as his line indicates? I mean I'm sure it's nice to pitch up 2 touchdowns and a field goal, but I love 0 BB and 4 K through 6 IP with just 5 H surrendered through 90 pitches (63 strikes).

EDIT: I see they reasonably yanked him after the 6th. Should be nice and fresh for his scheduled start later this week @TOR, who I believe hit LHP pretty well.

Mike Cuddyer pitching for the Twins in a blowout. They're just begging for an arm injury... stupid, stupid, stupid. The game is lost, let the long relievers' arms fall off, not one of your best hitters.

This happens several times every year and I can't think of one instance where the offensive player got injured. I'm kind of surprised that Plouffe didn't get picked but Cuddyer also has a cannon.

edit - Jose?
