    In the 4th, Liriano gave up a walk, a grounder Valencia should have fielded, another grounder Valencia and Willingham should have fielded, then a jam-shot blooper. I know they count as hits in the box score, but why should Frankie have to get pulled after 4 IP just because his "defense" can't catch the ball?

    Dick's right...this guy is excellent at keeping the ball in the park!

    3 straight hits, granted they are all singles. Now it's time for a bomb. OH Yeah, we have carroll up, maybe another single and then the bomb.

    So Gardenhire burns his best pitcher in a blow out.... Why put Perkins in there? Let Burton's arm fall off

    game 2

    Looks like game 164 to me. I love watching this team as much as about anything outside my family life and Tiger Woods in the hunt on sunday but this is getting hard to watch.

    What I saw tonight was an uninspired team playing an inspired team that had lost its last tune-up game to a college team. Seriously, the Orioles lost to a college club, and then the Os kick the Twins' butts in two games. Liriano was awesome in the first and then atrocious. It's not Gardenhire's fault, but this team needs new leadership. There is an exhaustion or asphyxiation with the Twins. They need some fresh air. They have taken this approach with the AAA manager, bringing Glenn in from outside of the organization. I hope that Gardenhire can inspire the guys to turn it around, but .... Two games, of course, are no indication of how the Twins will so. This may be wringing of hands hysterically after only two games into the season, but I think the asphyxiation is real on this team. I hope I'm wrong.

    Positives:

    Perkins looked pretty good.

    They managed to get a couple runs out of bases loaded, no outs, 2-3-4-5 hitters due up.

    Opening day tix on Stubhub can be had for as little as $19.95.

    I remember what I paid for Opening Day tix a few years back....not that.

    We should not forget that Baltmore started out HOT last year as well.
    They swept 3 games against the Rays, won 2 of 3 against the Tigers, took 2 of 4 against the Twins, 2 of 3 against the Red Sox, and almost swept the White Sox taking 3 of 4 to start out their first month of ball.


    Many teams begin the year slow. It's nothing new for the Twins to start out a little slow in the Wins column.


    Yes, some mistakes being made... defensively and offensively.
    It's only 2 games. At the end of the day, one team wins and one team loses. Some lose big, some lose by a little. Some win big, some squeak out a win.


    It's baseball. Go Twins!
