    7.5 out. Here we go on a run, enabling us to get nothing for our trade chits and still have enough time to swoon into irrelevance by august 15th. Yay!

    I don't have the box score in front of me, but I'm pretty confident the Twins didn't have 24 LOB tonight.

    And nice win. The price of that Liriano extension just keeps going up, Ryan.

    I go by individual LOB but team LOB was around 14...still way to many!

    Typo? Meant 14?

    You are correct, Dilligaf69 referred to individuals leaving runners on. Team LOB was only 13.

    It was actually 13 but if you go thru the boxscore it was 24....whatever!

    This thread seems pretty negative, considering the Twins just beat their arch rivals.

    Might have something to do with our overall record. Context matters. That's not to suggest that everyone isn't pleased with a win.

    I agree and will try to restore some karma by voting for Butera as a write in for the All Star game.

    While I enjoy the win, I don't know if I can get too rosy until we've won the series and are getting close to being competitive in the central at least.

    Let's not celebrate the victory with barbiturates now... come on.

    Yeah, I get that....every team goes through times like these. But it's going to be a long season if we're all complaining during both wins and losses.

    But if that does not happen, then you will have missed a fleeting opportunity for momentary joy.

    I hope that we sweep, but am grabbing some joy tonight while it's a sure thing.

    OK, I just got back from the game and read this thread. My advice is to lighten up, everyone! They won! Frankie pitched a decent game, the Twins got to Peavy a little bit early before he settled in, and in spite of poor hitting with RISP that could have put it out of reach, they still held on. And let's declare a general amnesty for Butera, just for 24 hours, for novelty sake if nothing else.
