    Three guys walk in front of you.... so you swing at the first pitch. Get a better plate approach... that goes for the entire team but Doumit and Danny especially in that inning. Careful chief, you'll soon be attacked for daring to make critical comments.

    Valencia didn't swing at the first pitch. Agree that Doumit had a bad AB.

    It's now the top of the 3rd. If we have to wait for the post-game to hear it, I will be surprised.

    What do we have now, one or two quality starts on the year? Well, at least they're trying hard and with good sportsmanship!

    This Maloney balony is done after tonight I hope. Liriano takes his place in the pen. ?Diamond? gets a rotation spot? What does it matter really, just start throwing guys out there and see if someone sticks.

    Can we just forfeit this game in the interest of preserving the Twins bullpen and my sanity?

    When you reach the bottom there is nowhere to go but up............this appears to be the bottom.

    They are booing Mauer, but I'm not sure it's really deserved this year. He hasn't been very clutch, but no one has been lately. He's playing everyday and has a .400 OBP.

    Nick! Good post! How can one team approach the game "the Twins Way", before changin course? Indefinately, I guess, as long as Terry Ryan is the GM and the Pohlads are content to raise ticket prices after losing 99 games.

    Boston is a bunch of punks. They blew a 9-0 lead against the Yankees...

























    Too bad we aren't the Yankees!!

    Careful, the more you post the more you reveal your ignorance.

    Dear Joe Mauer,
    For the love of cheerios, swing at the first pitch, grooved at 89 mph right down the meat of the plate, once in a while -- this will keep opposing pitcher's off balance in their pitching approach which helps your overall batting approach.

    Sincerely,
    Uninformed observer
