I was really impressed by the performance of the bullpen last night. Duensing, Perkins and Capps were lights out.. I got the feeling all three of them went into that game and just said "f**k this" we're not letting this get away. It may sound corny but they had the game faces on, especially Perkins, he was throwing some serious heat and his slider was back to old form.
Say what you like about Capps but if he gets that split finger to work like that one he threw last night, he'll get a lot more batters out.

Going into the season... Everyone was concerned about the bullpen.
So far the Bullpen has been the only thing performing. Baseball is a funny game that way.

You can see how this will play out because things even out in the end... All the guys we have hitting below .235 will start to hit a little and raise their averages. When that is happening we will build some leads and that's when the bullpen will come back down to the level we expected of them.
That may sound negative but that #1 pick in 2013 is exciting for me. The Twins will have the next Stephen Strausburg... I don't know who he is... But he's coming.

Pens been fine. Best part of the team. Capps/Burton from the right side & Duensing/Perkins from left side have been solid. Burnett/Gray & Swarzak (bullpen effort only) have been fine.

It's all the fans fault, they buy the tickets.

Hopefully the love affair with Anthony Swarzak will end soon. He is not good. Full stop. Gray is close to an implosion, so the Twins have three guys (Swarzak, Maloney, and Gray) to replace (hopefully with two pitchers and one player).
