    That at bat was exactly what he needed last time... It's all in the approach... Not trying to do too much. Don't swing at or Foul off the crap.

    Outstanding at bat by Plouffe! That's how a major league player gets it done!

    Plouffe has been a consistently good hitter this year. He had the count advantage and went for it. He failed. It happens. I thought it was the right move, but Plouffe needed to be relatively sure he could get good wood on the ball and he didn't.

    ...And Pedro loses even his last backer in Twins Territory...(or, I could be mistaken, maybe Riverbrian is still willing to go down with the good ship P-Flo?).

    Plouffe swinging at 3-0 with the bases juiced with two outs down by 4 runs with the teamleader in RBI up next was an extrordinary poor decision

    I am 100 percent behind Pedro Florimon... Although... I benched him a couple of weeks ago.

    I'll be back to supporting him if he can hit around .200

    .115 and two extra bases is too light for a light hitter.

    He's pulling everything... If ever a player needed to go with the pitch... It's Pedro... Right now.

    Thank God for last night's performance by Escobar. Maybe that's enough to convince Gardy that Pedro Florimon is not a Major League starter.

    On the other hand, I don't think terribly highly of Eduardo Escobar, either.
