I've heard this story before.

Boof Bonser managed to hang with Oakland's Barry Zito for seven innings. Boof showed good control, threw lots of strikes, and didn't walk a batter. He only made a few mistakes, but unfortunately, those mistakes led to four runs on three homers. Combine the solid-but-dinger-prone pitching with a complete absence of run support, and this year's Boof Bonser starts to look suspiciously like last year's Brad Radke. I'm still not sure what to make of this year's Radke; perhaps he'll give us some hints on Saturday.

Or perhaps Terry Tiffee will help to turn this road trip around, although that's about as likely as Tony Batista sprinting through foul territory to chase down a foul ball. Since that's exactly what T-Phat did tonight, though, there's hope yet! Right?

So it's apparently Tiffee and not Wooten? Strange. I think they should keep Mauer and Redmond alternating at catcher and DH. Both are hitting too well not to.
