Pain of all kinds is making the rounds for Twins

Scott Baker left with a five-run lead, but that didn't hold. If that wasn't deflating enough, Francisco Liriano will miss Saturday's start, and Joe Nathan and Jim Thome are ailing again.

The Twins are killing me one bullpen loss at a time.

Gardenhire and the TWINS management need to apologize to Baker and others who tried. Soon none will try. Then Gardenhire etc. need to resign. Instead of nursing an ouwie, he need to encourage the team. If Nathan cannot pitch, he needs to go the minors. Is Capp too much of a baby to pitch more than one inning?

Poor Scottie! The bullpen can do nothing but blowing wins.

So this is Bill Smith's brain child. NICE BULLPEN, Billie. Every stinkin' pitcher who pitched out of the bullpen tonight, belongs in the minor leagues. Gardy has zero bullets in the bullpen right now. ZERO!!! Great job, Billie.

Last year Eddie Guardado looked like he could still pitch, bring him back

OK. That's it. I give up. There is absolutely no relief in sight.

HOW MANY TIMES ARE WE GOING TO HAVE TO WATCH THE TRIPLE A TWINS BLOW ANOTHER ONE!! Two balls counted hits in the 9th that should have been errors and a walk with a five run lead? At what point do the Twins start reimbursing some of the ticket prices for watching a triple a ball club? They aren't playing a full game, so why should we have to pay full price? VERY SAD!

Crain...Guerrier...Rausch...Fuentes....didn't need any of them, did we? Last August, Bill Smith said, "We can never have enough pitching." Then he promptly got rid of our pitching. This guy is pathetic.

Look on the bright side; We wont have to pat Gardie on the back for getting swept in the first round of the playoffs this year.

Bill Smith blew up a good bullpen to pay Joe Mauers salary.You remember Joe Mauer,he used to play for the Twins.He had some mysterious illness & hasn't been herd from since.
