Garza threw a lot of good breaking balls and changeups against the White Sox and the Tigers, and as a result, the "new" Garza hasn't given up an earned run in 13 innings while striking out 10.

Sometimes it pays to listen.

Jottings

Before traveling to Minneapolis, the Tigers began a road trip in Seattle that will have them playing 17 of 20 games on the road -- a grueling stretch that could help the Twins move up in the AL Central standings.

Dmitri Young, who is hitting .342 for the Washington Nationals with 52 RBI and nine home runs, has a one-year contract for only $850,000 -- and the switch-hitting All-Star would look good in a Twins uniform. But the word is Nationals General Manager Jim Bowden wants too much in trade for Young and is hard to deal with.

Look for Jacksonville to sign quarterback Daunte Culpepper now that he has been released by Miami. Culpepper's contract called for him to be paid $51.5 million through 2013, and he made it impossible for the Dolphins to trade him because he wouldn't agree to a new contract with any team.

Former Gophers golfer Bronson La'Cassie finished in a tie for 62nd place in his PGA Tour debut last weekend at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill. La'Cassie shot a 3-under-par 281 for 72 holes to earn $8,692.

Former Vikings wide receivers coach Charlie Baggett, who was on Nick Saban's Dolphins staff, is now a wide receivers coach at the University of Washington. ... Curtis Crossley, a former Northern Illinois football player, is serving as an intern in the Vikings scouting department run by Scott Studwell.

Former Twins third baseman Terry Tiffee is playing third for Norfolk of the International League. ... Will Ryan, the oldest son of Wisconsin basketball coach Bo, has been named an assistant coach at North Dakota State.

Sid Hartman can be heard weekdays on WCCO AM-830 at 6:40, 7:40 and 8:40 a.m. and on his Podcast twice a week at www.startribune.com/sidcast. shartman@startribune.com
