Twins 14, Tigers 10, Sleep 0
My opinion of the Joe Crede signing was lukewarm at best, but it sure is nice to be getting power and great defense from third base. After last night's walk-off grand slam in the 13th inning Crede is batting .237/.304/.462 with five homers and six doubles through 25 games, which is basically identical to his .256/.306/.447 career line and when combined with truly exceptional defense makes him one of the 3-4 most valuable players on the team 20 percent into the season. Sure beats Tony Batista.
UPDATE: There's a full slate of afternoon games today, so I'm going to be live blogging/chatting over at NBCSports.com beginning at noon.
Once you're done here, check out my "Circling The Bases" blog over at NBCSports.com.
