And the Twins run themselves out of a great scoring opportunity. Unbelievable.

Lets steal with the teams best hitter at the plate...not top managing.

Jeebus, how slow is Mauer? He's not being held and he gets thrown out by that much?

Given the number of times they've done it this year, how can it be unbelievable? I find it very believable.:)

Man, what an awesome job by Duensing to get out of that jam.

Morneau's recent turnaround against lefties has been pretty incredible. Hopefully he keeps it up.

I just don't see Duensing as a starter. RH hitters just give him too much trouble.

I said "It'll be 3-1 after that." I wish I was right.

TheLeviathan
08-03-2012, 07:23 PM
So Duensing can't get out righties because he has a legit excuse being flip-flopped between the bullpen and the rotation according to Bert. But he crucified Slowey for saying it was messing with him?

At least he can lefties out, though he shouldn't have had to face that lefty.

NorthwestTwinsFan
08-03-2012, 07:28 PM
Duensing should probably be moved back to the bullpen. Well, for a couple weeks at least until they think he's ready to be a starter again.

C'mon, if Jhonny Peralta can get three bases on the same interfence situation, Revere can at least get 3rd base.

OK, Danny, you wanted a chance to earn your way back? This is it. All we need is a long fly ball and we're tied.

GCTF
08-03-2012, 08:01 PM
Tied, schweet.

USAFChief
08-03-2012, 08:10 PM
I say again...Mauer's defense ain't what it used to be. Almost every throw sails and tails these days.

IdahoPilgrim
08-03-2012, 08:10 PM
OK, what's up with this? 3 errors? This is starting to sound like A-ball.

JB_Iowa
08-03-2012, 08:11 PM
You gotta feel sorry for Duensing this inning ... c'mon you can get out of your teammates errors.

USAFChief
08-03-2012, 08:25 PM
It's really easy to like Jamie Carroll.

jokin
08-03-2012, 08:30 PM
I say again...Mauer's defense ain't what it used to be. Almost every throw sails and tails these days.

And he had all kinds of trouble keeping the low-pitched balls out in front of him in Diamond's start against the Whities.

Yeah, I don't expect Rocketpig to be on here 24/7, but certainly there should be someone, especially during an actual game.

Jeff gray is up in the bullpen

I think it's fair to wonder whether Perkins would've been pitching the 8th if he hadn't been used up yesterday.

mggopher
08-03-2012, 09:26 PM
OK..during the "takeover" there was an extremely hot chick interviewed on FSN (bottom of 6 maybe?). Was there a reason other than to point out her hotness?

snepp
08-03-2012, 09:26 PM
Did we get assaulted by a bunch of soccer wankers?

Gardy wanted him to get the save.

OK, Here comes Jeff Gray.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the Twins policy for closers.

It's also fair to think there needs to be more than one guy in the pen capable of getting an out.

Unbelievable futility for the Red Sox there.

Good job bullpen cleanup.

I wasn't listening to Robbie Incmakowski but I assumed that she was the NESN counterpart to the FSN girls. Gotta cross-promote everything. I think they did the same thing during the Rangers series.

Wow... Went out to dinner came back and Twinsdaily changed.

The site taken over by Leeds United... Leeds United isn't even in the Prem. It's like being taken over by the Toledo Mudhens.

If we are going to be taken over by something... How bout Tottenham or something... A team with actual talent...

Leeds United... No different then being taking over by Dag and Red. Just as worthless.

Twins battling with the Red Sox. 3 errors... That can't be good.

Yeah, that is true. But do you agree that Perkins probably would've been in there instead of Burnett had he not pitched the ninth inning last night?

Riverbrian
08-03-2012, 09:50 PM
Our team is more well known and supported than you **** ****s

LOL... Selling out Elland Road in the Champ are ya... Big crowds for the matchup with Portsmouth I bet. Hope you stay out of administration for awhile.

The Twins don't have a song... We don't sing at games over here. Because we don't want to be looked at funny. Nothing stolen... You got some bad info.

If someone took it... I'll help you get it back. Cuz we don't want it.

crarko
08-03-2012, 09:52 PM

You're asking if I can read Gardy's mind? Hahahaha. I need a beer.

snepp
08-03-2012, 09:56 PM
So basically this Minnesota Culture Club (whoever the **** they are), a random group of people with no ties to the team, they steal a song, change it, and no Twins fans even know it exists......

Yeah, that's something worth getting worked up over.

JFC, their team must be more pathetic than ours is.

TheLeviathan
08-03-2012, 09:57 PM
They're soccer fans snepp - reason and good taste aren't calling cards for that demographic.

b) Redundancy is redundant.

Padilla just threw a pitch that the tracker called "eephus" and was only 52 MPH; gotta wonder how you don't hit that 6 miles in the Bigs.

TheLeviathan
08-03-2012, 10:05 PM
Now that's how you eff up a bunt right there.

J-Dog Dungan
08-03-2012, 10:06 PM
Really, Dozier, bunting with a guy on 2nd in the 10th? Why not try for a hit?

kydoty
08-03-2012, 10:06 PM
How the **** does this happen all the time!?!?!

J-Dog Dungan

Wait, how the he%l is Carroll 3-3 with a walk tonight?

Riverbrian
08-03-2012, 10:06 PM
Gotta get that bunt down Dozier... But Carroll picks him up.

NorthwestTwinsFan
08-03-2012, 10:06 PM
Carrol is having himself a game.

J-Dog Dungan
08-03-2012, 10:07 PM
Make that 4-4 with a walk tonight and the go-ahead RBI in the 10th

J-Dog Dungan
08-03-2012, 10:08 PM
And another failed bunt attempt, this time by Span

J-Dog Dungan
08-03-2012, 10:23 PM
And they win it. Wow. They are one win away from winning a series against an AL-East team. Wonder when the last time that happened was?
