Any chance we can play the rest of the schedule with KC all in a row right now? We should catch up to Cleveland in no time.

Duensing did awesome today....feel bad he made comments about not having fun or even looking forward to showing up at the ballpark....Get healthy and get runs...our pitchers are doing pretty good now. GO Twins

If the Twins get anything going in June and July one of the payoffs for the unbelievable number of injuries they've experienced so far is that they will have a pretty good bunch of battle tested backups on their ML roster. Some of these guys are starting to find out they can play.

that was PRO baseball AND entertainment!. each team had only 6 hits and one error after 8. . the twins had 4 runs and kc had 0. just a hope and a prayer are needed to enjoy the game now. all aspects felt good, and it has always been about feelings, whether + or -. i just really enjoy thinking that the next matchups can now be considered even for a while. there was no blandwagon today.

Starting to wonder if this is end of the world. Pretty sure the Twins winning 4 in a row was a sign of the apocalypse. It's about time Twinkies!!!!

I really think this team had a hard time with the cold weather this spring. They seem to be playing much better as the thermometer rises.

This was a nice series for the twins! But they need to it against a good team before we can hope for a decent finish to the season.

Why the concern about Twins Minor leaguers? They just swept the Royals

What a wonderful surprise especially without the 200 million man and other healthy stars. You have to give credit to the so-called fill-ins who have given us a 4 game winning streak. Pray that Mauer and company can return from their hibernation and give Twins fans some serious excitement the rest of the way. I have plans to attend several Twins games and do not want to be disappoited.

Casilla is doing awesome. No mention of that but if he is doing bad he gets the blame.
