    Maybe not but there have been a lot fewer poor base running decisions at 3B since the Twins replaced Ulger with Liddle a couple years back. This is one of the first times I've actually thought about the 3B coach in a long time which is probably a positive thing considering they only get noticed when they screw up.

    That's too bad, pretty nice job up until then, just missed a couple bad ones.

    Well, Devries was doing ok till that inning, but the end result of his outing was pretty Marquis-esque.

    Duensing lit up. Well, it had to happen sometime. Too bad, it is against the Sox.

    Agreed, an average start, but about the best we could hope for, and (believe it or not) it still lowered the Twins' starters ERA on the season. If he gets some better defense and a little more timely hitting, he might win a few games this year.

    I think Morneau catches Willingham in ave and OPS in a couple 2-4 weeks barring injury.
    Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.

    I agree, it was about what I expected and not quite as bad as Marquis (it's his first start, so I should cut him some more slack I suppose). But it does feel like the Twins may have replaced one batting practice pitcher with another (although I do admit they didn't have too many other options). If they can get a couple quality starts out of him though, it'll be a significant upgrade.

    I should have said SLUG rather than OPS earlier about Morneau catching Willy. But since I'm looking at OPS right now, I didn't realize that Revere was out slugging Mauer by 31 points before today's game (.432 and .401 respectively, ouch)

    Good to see Morneau have a big game. Hopefully this helps build some confidence. There is alot of divisional play left for the Twins.

    Gotta find a way to win when you put 8 on the board.

    Cole did a great job, but defense and bullpen both sucks. It should have been a easy win that went bad.
