    Is anybody else crossing their fingers that Frankie gets through this inning?

    Well, I don't think Frankie deserved that. A couple of bad breaks and bounces that inning, and it costs him a chance at a win.

    Agreed, but Liriano should not have been out there -- it was clear that he had lost it.

    Gray also needs to come out -- he does not have good stuff today.

    This is a worrying result for Liriano. Earlier in the season when he got in trouble, it deteriorated quickly - he couldn't find a way to buckle down and pitch his way out.

    After he came back from the bullpen, there were a few games when he was able to do that - bear down and get those last outs.

    It appears he is reverting back to original form.

    That was a sickening inning. Now we get to see if the Twins can respond.

    Down 4 runs and you bunt?

    Since it was a long time ago, I want to remind everyone that Butera, batting 8th, made the final out last inning with a man on by swinging at two balls that weren't close to the zone. Now our #9 hits a triple. Yet, got to keep batting Butera in the 8-hole. Why? I know this is no good reason but why?

    Did Span really just bunt down by 4 runs?

    I don't think it was meant to be a sacrifice. He was trying to beat it out for a base hit.

    I would blame the man who filled out the lineup card and who kept Liriano in the game when he was clearly struggling.

    That's one out of the movies. I'm glad Liriano doesn't take a loss on this.

    I've noticed that Plouffe and Willingham have been homering in pairs lately.

    When you're the worst team in the American League, you only get one - and Mauer is deserving.
