Just in time for Mauer to return and claim credit for resurrecting the Twins.

Justin Morneau is back. Those swings were powerful and on balance. Rene Rivera looks like he's got real pop in his bat. Trevor Plouffe showed why he's going to be the Twins SS for the next ten years.

Not a bad game.

Good to see a dominant win! I like that Ploufee is playing well - his opb is higher than Span's so he fits in at the top of the order nicely, and has occaisonal power. I think he deserves to remain on the team when Nishioka returns. Closely linked to that ... Hughes should be gettting most of the starts at 2nd base. Why the obsession with Casilla? He has not come through for the team. In fact, Hughes should spot start at 3rd just to give Valencia a break since Luke will probably be sent down once either Thome or Repko returns.

I'm glad to see Morneau returning to form. Concussions are a serious deal and his road back has been slow. The team needs him. Also starting to wonder about Young. Was 2010 the abberation? He's not a very good fielder so when he hits below the Mendoza line, what do you have?
