    The Twins offense continues to bail out the starting pitching and Burton. Two nice wins in a row, capped by lights out closing by Perkins. Twins now over .500 again.

    I see some real positives here, including Fuld.

    My addition was a bit off, but the final total of 206 pitches is still awfully high. In games that they win, the Twins are routinely seeing 190+ pitches. That's a lot.

    I think the D should get a little blame here, and the starting pitching the teensiest bit less

    If the starting pitching improves we could have something here.
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    I will be honest, I did not think I would be seeing these types of statements a month ago. I suppose better baseball minds than mine would have looked at the line-up on paper and watched the spring training performances and said, this team is going to produce runs.

    Born in Hawaii? Hmmm, better check his birth certificate.

    I was watching on Gamecast and appreciate you clarifying this.

    Arcia a few days earlier than Willingham, but PiPress tweeted that it would be another 10-14 days and both should be back on the 25-Man roster (assuming that's how the Twins want to do it - they could send Arcia to AAA to make sure he still plays everyday with all the guys on the ML roster that play LF/RF/DH right now)

    the tweet:
    Arcia remains ahead of Willingham in wrist rehab, but Rob Antony said both could be back in majors w/in 10-14 days. #MNTwins
