"...everybody knows that's where I look for most of my pitches..." - That's everyone besides Anderson and his pitching staff.

Deunsing possibly to the rotation? Haven't we been down this road before??? More master managing from The Inflamed One. This guy has to be a frontrunner for MOY honors again this year. He just has to be. Shrewd stuff, Gardy. Keep up the great work.

Hurry back, Justin. I can't wait to see how long you stay in the lineup this time. The suspense is killing me.

Honestly...when is enough..enough...with Gardo and Andy. The Twins have to lead MLB in pitcher demotion and reinstatement from the bullpen. They've created the biggest group of prim-a-donas I've ever seen in all my years of watching baseball. Neither Gardenhire nor Anderson have a clue about evaluating, improving, game strategy etc. when it comes to handling pitching. And none of this has anything to do with Duensing...he's probably about the only pitcher that does his job.

Complete chaos, this team has gone down in flames, no survivors. Fire Gardy and all his coaches now!!

Yet another twin passes through waivers, how can teams lay off of these guys?

Duensing to the rotation is probably a good move because like Gardy relayed...what good is he out in the bullpen when there maybe only one lead to protect a week? I still think the Twins should bring back Luke Hughes to stregthen the bench. Wouldn't he have looked better pinch hitting against that Jays lefty in the 8th inning with the tying run on base than Casilla?

They better consider Camilo Pasqual for the rotation. Couldn't hurt!!

Just think, having Butera and Casilla available to pinch hit, that's it. Plain and simply we have about 10 guys on the roster who don't make any other major league team. That is why we are so bad.
