Gibson is not the answer - maybe Liriano was?

What's gotten into Dozier, lately?!?! I like it. You don't suppose it could be contagious, do you? Then again, it's Houston, but we can hope, can't we?

Thank you Houston. Was at the game ... great crowd and lots of energy. Sellout crowd with record walk up sales I heard. Feels like a State Fair almost ... most people are walking around and enjoying the atmosphere. I'd guess only 2/3 people actually in their seats and less than that watching the game lol.

Liriano? Really?

Send Gibson back down to get some more innings. Hopefully he'll be ready to contribute next year.

I had a free ticket... it was perfection outside. Maybe it was sadistic of me, but I had fun making fun of any Twin that flailed at the plate, and all the Astros. Its baseball. Somehow forgot for a few hours that we were a horrible team, playing a horrible team. I was a kid again. Maybe thats why we keep coming to the ballpark. James Earl Jones was right: people will come.

Wait. A season-long outcry from "the fans" for Gibson, and now he's not the answer? Could "the fans" have been wrong?

Dozier? Hicks' demotion probably reminded him that he was Aaron Hicks, 2012. Probably isn't looking for a second late summer of AAA at-bats.

Gibson another overrated Twins many have they had? Too know why Oakland can have a low payroll and compete? because they develop quality pitching..must have the best scouts in the business...Twins sure don't..
