    Mauer misplayed the pitch, no question. It cost the club a run as it turned out. The earlier wild pitch also cost the team a run. A couple of weakly hit balls also cost the team runs. Meanwhile, Mauer and Florimon combined to allow Jhonny Peralta to steal a key base, followed by a not-well-hit double by Prince. Of course, the Twins also had opportunities to score and failed. The most notable failure came from Plouffe and Parmelee with the bases loaded in the 7th.

    1 for 9 w/RISP and 12 left on is way too reminiscent of the last two years. But looking at the lineup it is hard to believe, as well being as almost statistically impossible, the Twins being as bad w/RISP as they were the last two years.

    Good to see Worley being able to adjust and keeping things close.

    Hope springs eternal.

    Win Twins!

    Where was Burton? Roenicke is the last guy you want in the game with runners on base.
    i didn't know that about Roenicke... All in all... Despite that first pitch... He did a nice job on the mound.

    My bad... Fielder is slow and it should have been factored into the bunt coverage plan. It's a point certainly worth mentioning 3 times.

    I think you failed to take into account that Prince Fielder is not a fast baserunner.

    Why don't you do next season instead of last? Then we can see how good you really are.

    I'd like to find some way to slow clap through the comment section...but can't make it work. Nice writing. (And great framing device)

    Considering the number of posts crucifing Butera and Gray this season, it is a great post.

    Great post and I couldn't agree more (and nice use of The Godfather as well).
