    Walters should probably stop throwing that 4-seam fastball. Both HR's have come on that pitch.

    Not only is he hitting, but he is hitting the ball solidly. I could handle more of this.

    Hmmm... Maybe Walters should only pitch at Target Field.
    I opine about the Twins and Kernels regularly at Knuckleballsblog.com while my alter ego, SD Buhr covers the Kernels for MetroSportsReport.com.

    He's contributed offensively so far. Good for him. Good for the Twins.

    It's extremely unlikely to continue.

    Perhaps it's time for Walters to call it a day...Let's take the "quality start" and run!

    Under normal circumstances I'd be looking for the bullpen in the 7th. But with the bullpen in the shape it's in, I think you gotta hope for another inning from Walters.

    Keep the ball in the ball park please. Only 3 hits given up but all 3 have been HRs.

    Really...you groove one to Prince on a 3-1 count???? rather put him on and take my chances with DY who promptly grounds into whay may have been a inning ending DP....Plus still way too many LOB for the Twins.....UGGGG!

    He at 76 pitches....you put him back out there for sure. Have someone warming up but he definitely goes back out.

    Agreed...give him the benefit of the doubt that he may have actually improved and is now a better hitter (although he had set that bar pretty low).

    yeah, its too bad everyone but Capps pitched yesterday. Cant trust Frankie in this situation. Burton threw 14 pitches last night and Perkins threw 10. Maybe one of those guys?

    I suppose it's encouraging that he gave up a hit and managed to keep it in the ballpark?
