KANSAS CITY, MO. – Attack the strike zone, get ahead in the count and make the hitters get themselves out. That’s what happened Monday in Kauffman Stadium, and the result was an absolute gem.

In addition to pitching, perhaps Carroll could also serve in the role of GM and manager. He certainly couldn't do any worse than the two that are doing those jobs now.

Can't pitch, can't hit can't field, can't run the bases. The beat goes on.

"Liam Hendriks, who gave up five runs in 5⅓ innings for Rochester to Syracuse on Sunday, is presumed to be the likely starter". More interesting is the fact that they brought Hendriks north instead of Deduno the last two years. The writer might go through our minor leagues and delineate the pitchers in the system and include a picture of them.

gardenhose is the only manager ever that stated he wanted his pichers to ''pich to contact'' so anyone who is on the street can come in and pich for this tax begging welfare team . gardenhire is a disgrace,, a third base coach is all he should ever be, him and billy smith were terrible judges of talent and gardenhire turned a culture of toughness and accountability under tom kelly into a team of joe mauers,, guys who dont mind losing and want to be on the injured list, sad indeed

I like Jamey Carroll...he should be the Twins starting thirdbaseman...should have been all year! We'll keep trotting Plouffey out there though..one of these days he is gonna hit one of his meaningless homeruns and regain his stature of a "prolific homerun hitter" with the "bar set low" crowd!
