    Is there anything left in the Twins' bullpen worth preserving? How about in your sanity?

    Bottom 1st: Twins have the bases loaded, one run on the board, and only one out. In any other year beside last and this year, do you bet the opposing pitcher gets a quality start? Says everything about the offense really, and that's the bright part of this team. Still smiling!

    I am pleasantly surprised with Gray's performance thus far as well... not super impressed but impressed given the expectations. Genuinely

    I've seen him pitch twice this year - 3.2 IP, 6 K, 0 BB, 2 H, looked great both times. The rest of the time - 5.2 IP, 4 H, 0 K, 7 BB. When they call to get him up, the next call needs to be to me to tune in to the game.

    Burnett just walked Punto. In October I hope we look back at this as the low point of the season.

    Of all starts, we've gotten a quality start only 16% of the time so far this season. That's one quality start every six games. Until you fix that, it doesn't matter so much what the offense does. Buy hey, at least we win at a hight % than we are getting quality starts, right!

    Good effort turning the 1-6-3 DP. Too bad we couldn't get it. Oh well, we tried super hard and that's what counts.
