Dozier's not perfect, but he gives everything he's every game. You gotta love the guy.

How does Brunansky do it??? Twins with 16 ks tonight and Justin Morneau does not even get the bat off his shoulder in striking out to end the game. Brunansky has become adept at teaching the Twins the art of striking out and when you consider they only have one hitter who is hitting over .280 for the season, well, maybe the hitting coach, Joe Vavra was not as bad as everyone thought he was last year. Sometimes it is not always a good idea to want something different just for the sake of change.

Or maybe there just isn't anyone in this organization that deserves to be coaching at any position. I have so sick of watching called third strikes.

16 more strikeouts. Hard to win the game when you can't even put the ball in play.

two postgame thoughts 1) without mauer and morneau and their ridiculous salaries--used instead for starting pitching--the twins could be a contender next season, 2) and who is responsible for bringing in correia and worley?

Dang, missed another barnburner tonight.

I know it sounds good on paper, but who really believes that the money spent on Mauer and Morneau would have gone for a number one pitcher?

Last Friday night against Houston at Target Field, "Gardy" thought he was managing against a National League team using "National League rules" in the game, as he himself stated. Tonight, the Twins strike out 16 times. 27 outs, 16 of them via strikeout. But more importantly, the season's loss total is now at 62, which means of course, that the magic number is just 28 for "Gardy" and his crew to have attained the proud honor of being at the helm for three 90 loss seasons in a row. 99 losses in '11, 96 in '12, and 9? in '13.

Back to reality. Can't win with a bunch of former indy leaguers and 29 year old rookies. Reading the comments from last night, what a joke. Albers will fit right in with this bunch soon enough. Remember Cole DeVries starts against the Royals? Albers is DeVries. Cheap cheap cheap.

This is not the first time the twins have approached the sweet 16 of strikeouts. The frustrating thing about it is that many of the strikeouts happened with runners on base. I don't think the team is a total failure though, and we do have some good players on this team; it has potential. So what is needed? I can only say that sticking with a manager and front office that have three seasons of losing is something I will never ever understand. And until that changes, I will keep my car at home and my ticket money in my pocket.
