    I will NEVER understand this brand of "bullpen management".

    It's the eighth ****ing inning. Guys are on base. There are less than two outs.

    Why are your best relievers not on the mound? So they can pitch a clean ninth inning when there's a good chance the team will be losing by that point?

    Stupid. Just stupid.

    It's the chubby cheeks. Must be distracting during his windup with all that jiggling going on.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Good thing Burton or Perkins weren't on the mound!

    Now one of them can't get the save!

    Revere does three sommersaults and catches it standing up.

    Yep, and Span should have been playing shorter there. A double doesn't matter much.

    He should have gone flat-out for that ball and he pulled up.

    At least Perkins will be rested for tomorrow's save possibility.

    Agreed. You bring in your closer(s) with 2 out in the 8th and then let them finish in the ninth. These are your f ing high leverage guys....wait for it.... to pitch in high leverage situations. Swarzak is a 7th inning guy at best.
    Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.

    I try not to bash Gardenhire too much for in-game management but I have to admit that my blood is approaching the boiling point. There isn't a single *good* reason why the Twins weren't using their best relievers in that situation.

    This series is why I'd like to judge teams on the distribution of runs scored, rather than total scored.....like 1 great, 1 very good, 2 sucky games for the offense. But the total runs scored will look ridiculously good....I've lost interest in discussing how the 'pen is used....I've actually lost a lot of interest in discussing the current team, frankly. I wonder if there is anyone that still thinks they should not be sellers.....
    Lighten up Francis....

    At least we now know that Roberston is nothing special.

    See what happens when Cappsie isn't around, just f*cks everything up.

    Has someone explained to Gardenhire that he's allowed to use both Perkins and Burton in the same game?

    7 MLB innings and Robertson is nothing special...20 spring training innings and give Liriano a 3 year deal.

    But still holds out faith in Nick Blackburn.

    "wathcing on my phone.....", so I might be a minute or two behind. but if the hammer gets on, and Morneau hits a HR, Swarzak would get the win....does anyone really think pitcher win has any meaning? really?

    Nice AB by Willingham.

    And now Morneau gets the lefty. Sigh.

    No, no. You're totally misunderstanding me. I'm not asking for something crazy like that, only that it's possible for Gardenhire to use one in the eighth and the other in the ninth.
