    You know, for as rough as this stretch has been the starting pitching today and yesterday has been pretty good. Even Pavano kept things relatively close. The defense and the absent offense has really made these first handful of games hard to watch.

    Starting pitching has been Ok, ERA aside. Defense has been terrible, as has the bullpen.

    Lets look at the bright side. No one in the Twins Organization has pledged their support to Fidel Castro.

    Ha, is there a Dutch dictator that Bert can pledge allegiance to?

    Count me among fans who hope and pray that:

    a) Down 2 in the 8th, Doumit's goal wasn't to move one runner up one base at the expense of an out, and

    b) Nobody, and I mean NObody on the Twins, including the manager, was thinking the goal of Doumit's PA was to advance 1 base runner one base, at the expense of an out.

    Also, you can count me among the fans who feel that way regardless of what drivel DickBert spew.

    Capps will not be a problem this year.

    He will pitch as he did in 2010.

    If he gets a chance to save a game

    I figured this would be a tough season to watch, but the lack of offense by the Twins makes their games unwatchable. I cannot imagine anyone thought the pitching would be very good this year, although I thought the defense would be better... not looking good. Off of the subject - Unbalanced Ballparks are awful, whether it be band boxes or expansive ballparks that drop a pitchers ERA by 2 runs. Target Field is a Smoking Hot Woman/Man with a very unattractive and intolerable personality. Usually a ball club will build their park around their star players. The Twins on the other hand built Target Field to Handcuff them and render their strengths unusable.

    Bottom of the 6th, Twins down 2-1. Mauer, Morneau, Willingham due up. 3 up, 3 down. Top of the 7th, Angels score 3 to ice it. Blackburn did all he could to keep us in this one and the big bats did not deliver when it counted. Meanwhile Wilson steps up his game to records the big outs. There, in a nutshell, is the difference between a winning team and losing one. Big bats are going to have to find a way when their starter gives them 6 solid innings.

    Good news, everyone! The Twins can't possibly lose another game today. Tomorrow is harder to call, but enjoy the day free of frustration and gnashing of teeth!
