    Thank God for Delmon Young, who retains enough Twins suckitude to GIDP and get us out of that inning.

    Only the rookies seem to be able to give any hope -- Diamond, DeVries and Walters -- and we will be lucky if one of them can keep it up. This is going to be a LONG and unhappy season. I was hoping that we would benefit from playing in a weak division, but the starting pitching is so bad that we would have trouble winning in AAA.

    Scherzer strikes out the side. Now let's give up some more runs.

    At least Span shows that he can still hit a home run.

    The worst part is, the Twins have to keep trotting Pavano out there since he is the only starter who could possibly be traded for someone.

    I think that there are lots of contenders for worst part, including having no one better than Pavano to replace him, as well as poor offense, poor defense, and a weak farm system. It seems to me that the only salvation will be to trade everyone over age 30 who can be traded, in an effort to put together a run in 2015 or 2016. In the meantime, we are looking good for high draft picks for a while.

    THIRTEEN Twins strikeouts. There should be a rule that after 15 strikeouts we can hit off a tee. And if there are more than 5 strikeouts using the tee, then they should call the game.

    Haha. Octavio Dotel was the pitcher I wanted the Twins to sign instead of Capps.

    That might be a start, but it doesn't explain that level of incompetence.

    Willingham hasn't given them a good AB in a week. And, when's Doumit coming back?

    Yeah, his BA has gone from .300 to the .260s in the blink of an eye. He seems to be taking a lot of good pitches and whiffing on ones he should be taking. Hopefully he gets is straightened out soon.
