It could be scary, but this is good news. Hey, we all had to learn how to ride a bike when we were kids and we all for the most part sucked and then became pretty good at riding a bike. Let's give Plouffe a friendly push, give him some time, and hopefully he will become pretty good at playing third base. The Twin's really don't have anything to lose on this as there really is no more to lose. Time is something we have this season. I hope it works out.

How does a player score from second on a fielder's choice?

This is like watching "The Natural" except that there is no Robert Redford sitting on the bench.

Jason Marquis is in his 6th organization in 7 years. Perhaps there's a reason for that.

Mauer comes through with that groundout to second every time. The guy is automatic.

It looks like Plouffe misses Valencia and wants to join him in Rochester.

More like the Bad News Bears, even. Coach might as well be drinking, to boot.

I would bitch about Perkins being in the game, but down 4 in the 8th is probably what qualifies as "high leverage" for the Twins these days.

Because Gardy must always have his cute little no talent all hustle guy in the lineup: hocking, punto, redmond, butera, carroll, clete, komatsu, on, on, on, on. What a waste of a roster spot!

Awful team, terrible upper levels in the farm system, a GM that doesn't believe in big time free agents, a team that cut it's payroll in year 3 of a stadium (with, I think I've read, teh 5th highest ticket prices, really?), 25% of your money in one player.....the future does not look so bright.

8-23. The Twins are now 4 games behind last year's 99-loss pace after 31 games.

Considering the size of the payroll, this might just be the worst professional baseball team ever assembled.

The Twins record would be substantially different with better starting pitching, but that starting pitching has to average out at some point. That is hopeful, I know.

Again this team is hampered by the immensely stupid contract handed out to Nick Blackburn. Like Nishioka, it is going to be time soon to cut the losses and try someone else. Marquis is better than Blackburn, but he is next.
