    Yes, he's been very, very bad.

    Yeah, I was about to post those stats. And now it is gotten dramatically worse. Even Swarzak is a better starting option.

    Look at that ball fly!
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Six runs in the first two innings. At what point do the fans just stop showing up?

    Yeah, this is pretty bad, and it really is about the lefty-righty splits. It's ridiculous. I'm OK with the attempt, and now it needs to end... but who starts?

    It's okay, this is the '88 A's he's facing.

    There was no reason to ever stretch him out and try this again.

    Another Twins starter throwing batting practice I see.

    Good grief.

    This team is pretty bad at the game of baseball right now.

    I never again want to read that Target Field is some sort of grand canyon, where HRs are impossible to hit.

    Almost have to assume that Duensing doesn't get another start, Blackburn comes back up to the Twins and maybe Robertson gets sent down?

    Reminds me of the joy I got from attending Livan's final game in a Twins uniform. Sat in the RF stands above the baggy to try and catch home run balls, but all of them he gave up went to deep center instead...

    Duensing has value as a bullpen guy - just accept this fact Twins. Call up some other schmuck and put this guy back where he belongs and never try this again.

    I agree. At this point I would rather see Butera start a game than Duensing.
