    amazed at what the Twins see in him. Lucky for him, but I believe MN plans on keeping him, the minor league relievers have been battling injuries (oliveras, guerra, guittierrez, waldrop earlier in yr) all yr.

    We all wish Jeff Gray would go away, but the problem is he's not even top ten on my personal list of "who do I want to see go away?"

    But he is the most recent.

    LOL, they just mentioned about how we used to complain about Punto. How I miss the days when we could complain about a scrappy hitter with amazing defense being a dud in the lineup! Compare that to the pitching problems now and it seems pedestrian.

    In the real world you win a headache. But if there was justice, you would win a weekend in Vegas with that weather girl, so that you could forget this crapfest.

    If they can get one in the end zone here they can take the lead.

    Pending the extra point.

    The A's are a very small market team. Why not offer every one of their scouts and talent evaluators $10,000 more than they are making now, then clean house?

    The A's always seem to have solid pitchers. The Twins could too at a cost that would be less than 10% of what they blew on Marquis.

    And now Casilla is trying to bunt for a hit...with two down and a runner on third.

    Lexi solidifies his spot at number one on my "who do I want to go away" list.

    Twins lasted 8 pitches that inning. How bad can this get?

It's just bad strategic use of your personnel, which shouldn't be surprising for this team....
    At the time they moved Duensing into the rotation, I didn't have a problem with it because there just weren't other options. And, 2012 is over, so it's not hurting (or helping) Duensing to get time in the rotation.

    Most important for me is 2013, so I think that they do need to let Hendriks work on some things in the minors at this piont and just let him pitch there for awhile. Blackburn could probably come back up, although he's not really any better.

    I hate adding guys over our own developed guys....massive pet peeve.
    Casey Fien is a retread in the same way that Jared Burton is. I'm all for building from within and it's certainly ideal, and the Twins do that as well (or better) than most teams. If my guess is the way they'd go, Robertson got is chance, like many guys he will take the experience back with him to AAA And come back better, we hope. Happens all the time. My point is always to do what is best for the prospects. Sometimes that is not pushing them. It's not getting 'the axe' permanently.
