    6. Think about Burton and 6a. think about Tonkin.

    The year he was good, didn't Burton throw the "splange-up" most of the time? Why the fastball reliance the last 2 years.

    Dunno. The 21 pitches and high usage to start the season probably didn't help. And Gardenhire only asked him to go two innings once last year, in the last week of the season, oddly enough. In fact he only recorded more than three outs three times last season.

    Why is that more acceptable than losing the ball in the roof?

    You can't just DL these guys right when they get hurt. That wouldn't make sense.

    To be clear, you can't DL starters when they get hurt, you can DL guys that should not be on the roster at all. these unwritten rules are hard....

    Suspecting there's a Reussie column in the works about the loss, in which all we learn about the game is that Mauer walked in his final AB instead of homering, and is therefore an indisputably over-rated nonleader and all-around disappointment.
