Castillo rolling over in pain after having his hand "spiked"

The Twins' loss came with a pricetag. Castillo suffered a nasty injury at homeplate, when his hand was stepped on by Toronto's catcher. Not intentionally, but nasty all the same. Castillo stayed in the game--until the 9th when his at-bat came and his hand was too swollen to swing. Having watched that replay a few times, it's hard to imagine he'll be playing tonight. Cirillo, having covered first base since Morneau's injury, is experiencing knee pain. The question remains whether he'll be playing tonight as well.

On a brighter note: 4 out of 5 "web gems" (from Baseball Tonight) were from the Twins-Toronto game. Top web gem: Punto's amazing catch in the dugout (also featured as the top play on Sports Center).

Regardless of who's playing, I'm planning to be at tonight's game, cheering on the battle-weary, bruised boys of baseball.

Hey! You may have seen me on the web gems since I was right where Punto made that catch. Except...I was too busy making sure I didn't get hit by the ball.

Have fun at the game tonight and think positive thoughts for Baker, we need him to deliver.
