    The problem is that, given his track record, the next start could just as easily be the reverse - 2 IP 6 ER. I'd love to be able to believe that this time is for real, but when you get burned, it's hard not to be skittish about playing with fire.

    The same could be said for any pitcher.

    How many pitchers do the twins have with the ability to put up a ten start stretch with the above numbers?

    Oh noes, down to 2 catchers now.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Hes really looked pretty good.

    Odd, considering i was told in spring that its impossible for a guy with the skills to play SS for half a decade of pro ball to ever transition to an easier infield position.

    Nice job Fein.

    Side note: According to JoeC in the STrib, the MRI on Capps "came back worse than expected."

    All I can say is Crapp(s).

    It still irritates me so much that this team has good speed and yet can't seem to steal a base when it matters. This just has to be a Gardy thing.

    Well, they have to get rid of Frankie just because they can't score many runs when he's on the mound. Geez.

    Revere must be the only one able to swipe a bag... Span doesn't steal much either.

    I didn't get the jizz fest when Casilla didn't run past that ball. If he gets hit he is out, runner's interference he is out. He doesn't beat the throw anyway. Just thought it was a stupid tantrum.
