Un-freakin-believable. This team cannot do ANYTHING right now. 2 blown saves? Talk about a deflating, potentially road-trip ruining loss....

I am about to blow my top!! I HATE GARDENHOSE!!! Leave Pavano in there for **** Sake!!! He only had 104 pitches. That is not an amount to start panicking about!! Let him finish what he started! Pavano had 7 CG's and 2 SHO last year. He can do it!! Even if the Twins had won, I would have said this! Let them pitch!!! ARGG!!!

So because Pavano had 104 pitches, Gardy yanks him. What a moron. Pavano was cruising... Gardy coddles, and the Twins lose.

Nathan was a complete joke tonight. So was Capps. No excuse for losing to this bad team. If those 2 keep up blowing games like this, I say get rid of em!

Gardy, you are doing it again! Let Pavano finish the game, 4 hits in 8 innings and dominating the Rays. Gardy has to have a feel for the game. Pavano was not in any trouble so why bring Nathan in? Stop managing by the book. He did this same #$@! last season! Tough loss to take to lose like that!
