    Possible, but this would again anger me as it keeps retreads like Casey Fien & Jeff Gray (who have NO future with team) on the club over a guy like Robertson (left handed specialist only...and a MN developed player) gets the axe.
    I hate adding guys over our own developed guys....massive pet peeve.
    Duensing probably wouldnt start if PJ Walters didnt have a setback. Walters (back in TCities for an evaluation) said he's not back to square 1 (in Star Tribune) but its a defiante setback.

    Nice to see Dozier starting to hit a little.

    Personally, think Dozier will end up up around .260/.270 at yrs end......which means he may have to hit .290 or so 2nd half. Am expecting it.

    I think that the intended message was that there are people who are even more desperate for success than the Twins.

    I think Duensing will be okay back in the pen. He really seems to have the mental make-up for it.

    When he was in the pen earlier this year, I thought we were seeing the return of "Dirty Duensing" and I was disappointed when they gave him starts again.

    This team is like a sieve -- way too many holes to fill.

    Seth, so you'd rather have Duensing stink as a starter, as bad as Hendriks or Blackburn, and not have him in the pen? It's silliness to have him start. He is a good reliever, and an awful starter. There is no upside this year or next, having him start games this year. It's just bad strategic use of your personnel, which shouldn't be surprising for this team....
    Lighten up Francis....

    Perfect time for Gray to have a 5 run inning.

    Had to look at the unis again. I thought it was only Blue Jays who could hit this many HR at TF.

    This would be a better telecast if they would devote 95% to that blonde weather girl and interrupt only occasionally to check in on the game.

    I was angry when MLBs idiotic blackout rules prevented me from watching the Twins games last weekend. Little did I know they were doing me a favor.

    I wish Jeff Gray would just go away.

    Maybe the Twins are like an alcoholic -- they need to hit bottom before they get better. Getting swept like this by the A's is like waking up with your car crashed into a police station and you are covered in vomit.
