    tonkin>>>>>>most RP on the roster. Would be nice if they would stop being obsessed with veteran relievers, and use the guys they develop.
    Lighten up Francis....

    Once again, Mauer kicks the can down the road to someone else in the lineup.

    Yes swinging at bad pitches and getting an out would have been preferable.

    Sometimes a hit is better than a walk. They build statues for men who play that way. Two of them are on the grounds of Target Field.
    Sold or not, empty seats behind homeplate are an eyesore and an embarrassment.

    And a walk is always better than an out. With all due respect to the statues on the grounds, they didn't always get that hit you're promising.

    Oh and they'll find a place for Mauer's statue some day too.

    Tell ya what, I'll take the guy who goes 2 for 4 and gets on base 4 times in a game. You can have the guy who makes bad decisions and chases pitches. We'll see who comes out ahead...

    A hit is always better than a walk. A walk is always better than swinging at bad pitches and striking out or popping up or grounding out to 2nd.

    Rough game. Nice comeback. Burton coughs it up. I would have liked to see them move Burton. I suspect we'll see more of this. Fien will be the set-up man by May, IMO.
