CLEVELAND – He might not be the Scott Kazmir some Twins remember from his younger days. The problem on Friday night was that he was the Scott Kazmir they remembered from May.

Once again, Gardy puts in duensing in a critical situation and Duensing fails to deliver. Thielbar hasn't given up a run all season. Why not give him a shot? Duensing fails ttime after time. These are the Games we have to win. It gets tougher soon, With Two trips to New York on the horizon.

Good Twins teams in the past made up for lack of talent with chemistry and hard work. Simply put, winning was important to those guys. This type of lackluster effort coming off a sweep shows the Ho-Hum Boys and the gang just don't have the leadership or fire to compete. Sell, sell, sell.

Hey, don't worry, theTwins are "in the hunt", right Dave?

Trade or release Duensing, give Burton a week off and if he still sucks do the same with him. The season is long gone, but at least look ahead to see if there are any major league players in the organization. Those two do nOT figure in the Twins future, especially if they are going to keep Anderson around.

Dozier tell the those supposed power hitters how you do it. Seriously! And while your at it tell Willingham to take a good swing at the 3rd strike he just might hit it.

Once again, Gardy totally mismanaged his pitching; he has absolutely NO baseball intuition. Everything is run according to some "formula" he inherited from TK. Gardy and Andy think every pitcher is Brad Radke. Dedundo (and Walters, for that matter) is a glorified long relief pitcher. If you can get five or six productive innings from either, at the back of the rotation, consider yourself fortunate and turn it over to the bullpen. But turn it over at the BEGINNING of an inning, not after the starter has cluttered up the basepaths because he's been asked to do more than he's capable of doing. Why does Gardy ALWAYS insist that a starter that's near his limit should open an inning only to falter and put the bullpen under duress? Any reliever would much rather start an inning clean. Every pitcher is created differently, and Ron Gardenhire and his formulas seem to ignore this fact.
