Shake it off Frankie, a solo shot is not a big deal. Don't get yourself too worked up.

I gotta say, I miss Hunter more than any other ex twin (maybe Garza) from the last few years. The guy knows how to play baseball. We didn't need him though.
Lighten up Francis....

Wow. Smalley just pointed out that we have now gave up 36 home runs. We have hit 14. Just...wow.

Piss poor baserunning by Span again. Does he not know how to take a lead or read a pitcher. I saw that coming from 2000 miles away!

Unbelievable! This CANNOT continue! Twins have got to take Liriano out of the rotation!!!! It sucks even more that there is absolutely zero to replace him with.

They need to replace both with a bucket of balls.

I agree with Smalley, Liriano's pitching better tonight. It's not getting us jacks**t but they seem to have him on the right meds. The worse part is the patience at the plate tonight, making Williams look way too good.

Roy Smalley's optimism about Liriano is crazy. I'm not sure whether to laugh, cry, or throw up.

Look at this lineup and the starting pitcher and tell me how it could be possible to win this game? Clete Thomas is terrible, Chris Parmelee doesn't belong here, and Danny Valencia is poor. At least Drew Butera is coming to rescue the Twins.

Roy Smalley is a JOKE! Even Dick Bremer and Seth Stohs can't compete with his homerism! The fact that Gardy continues to play Thomas shows he is asking to be fired! Put him out of his misery now.....

The Angels had scored 9 runs in their 6 games before the last two games....agree with a poster above, this roster is not constructed to win. Bad drafting (by Ryan), bad trades by Smith, and injuries to their only good pitcher and 2nd best hitter....no depth now that they feel the need to carry 13 pitchers and three catchers, no help in the minors. Don't worry, I bet they take that $15MM drop in payroll (in a year where MLB payroll went up on average) next year and buy some players....
Lighten up Francis....

Well I wouldn't call 5 hits getting lit up, one was a damn good bunt by a fast runner but they have taken advantage of his mistakes. 3/1 K-BB , 57 pitches, 34 for strikes, he's gotten ahead of a bunch of batters and just got out of a runner on 3rd, no outs situation.

Not as bad as it's been. Just trying to be positive.

The following players have no business getting regular MLB playing time: Parmelee, Thomas, Carroll, Valencia, Blackburn, Marquis, etc. These guys could be CUT and no other MLB team would give them anything other than the last spot on their 25 man roster IF THAT. TERRY RYAN, YOU HAVE PUT TOGETHER A GREAT TEAM!!!! Please resign, the game has passed you buy. Can't wait to see TR draft some soft-tossing strike thrower with the #2 pick that will have a ceiling of 4.5 K/9 and an ERA of 4.50.

Let's all jump on Smalley for questioning the Twins plate discipline.........or is that easy enough for everyone to see?

No probably not as bad..still not good though. It's too easy to get sarcastic/negative with the way he has pitched this year....
