    Thank the heavens the inning ended and ended that train of thought from Bremer. Or train wreck of thought. Wow, that was uncomfortable for me. And I don't know that I've ever really had too much to say about him before.

    Whether you like it or not, he's going to be a starter again for us next year. You know that, right?

    I'd rather cheer for wife beating Brett Meyers then Nick Blackburn.

    Between last night and today, I'm wondering if there's some sort of force in left field. Maybe some weird magnetism wreaking havoc with anyone out there's muscles and brains and blood flow.

    Maybe we should all try to say something positive about Nick.

    He's 1/5th of our 2013 rotation, so that's one less item on the shopping list. And I don't hope that a speeding bus runs him over.

    Worst team in baseball for atleast 3-4 years.

    Bottom it out, start over and pray the Twins are smart enough to hit on some picks and trades.

    I like the clean shaven look. At least he no longer looks like he just got home from a week long bender.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    A double and this could be tied up, and cue two K's in a row.

    At least we're getting the game out of the way early today - leaves plenty of time to drown our sorrows in whisky later.

    I've heard a little, though not much, of this thinking and completely disagree. Yes, losing and better draft picks are proportional, but winning and losing is infective. It's not like you can try to lose a couple years and then turn it off in the following years and try to win again. Look at the Royals and Pirates, it takes decades to even get a winning record, even all the while stock piling high draft picks... it's an all-too-easy and none-too-clever approach.

    The second half of last season and the first few weeks of this year were like that. It seemed like every single inning on both offense and defense were an adventure and a struggle. That almost every play seemed like it was nearly impossible to execute cleanly. And it had more or less gotten better for a couple months+ and has come back with a vengeance recently. Ugh.

    At least Casilla made Peavy work for it.
