Great to see the Twins play in a left hand hitters friendly ball park. Way to go, Denard!

THE twins should of kept OLIVEROS up and sent MANSHIP down he is not a major leaugue pitcher.DIAMOND is either getting tired or something is wrong he doesnt throw hard enough second game in a row he has one stike out.HOW come most of the twins starting pitchers cant strike anybody out?I know there 88 mile an fastball is a joke.

I had hope the TWINS recent winning streak meant they were turning a corner towards being a winning team. But tonight and several other recent losses with only part of the team giving great effort reminded me of last year and why the TWINS are the worst team in the AL.

Please end the Jeff Manship Era now.

So Diamond is proving to be human, Gardy is still terrible about managing his bullpen, and Gardy is still refusing to move Plouffe up in the lineup for better protection? Yup, seems about right.

Even poorly managed bad teams with one tremendously overpaid player will win a couple of games on occaision. The rest of the time? pure stink.

The Twins get shut down by a lousy ragarm. You can see Anderson's affect on Diamond already. Good job Andy good job!

With Willingham not hitting, Morneau looking pretty pathetic at the plate, and Mauer on the bench, the Twins are not too much fun to watch. College World Series was more interesting.

Dick Homer Bremer would like to remind you of the White Sox score since the Twins are only 14 games below .500.

Dick Bremer: 'Jamey Carroll was a GREAT acquisition for the Twins.' He's only got a .648 OPS but XBH are overrated and his caucasianness and grit are off the charts as a 38 year old hustler bustler.
