    Unfortunately, I can see Gibson having a bad start next week and being the guy sent down, how big of a joke would that be?

    Sorry guys, just a tad bit disgruntled.

    I think the chances of that happening are virtually zero.

    The front office isn't stupid.

    Kind of like when my little nephew and I play basketball. You let him score, don't call double dribble, etc.

    Typical Mauer...walking instead of hitting a go-ahead HR.

    If Gardy/Antony would give up on Burton, Pelfrey and Correia we might have a chance this year, this offense is very fun to watch indeed!

    Ummm, the FO that signed Pelfrey to a two year deal? The FO that didn't want Abreu? I don't think they are stupid, I think they make some stupid decisions.
    Lighten up Francis....

    You are perfectly welcome to become un-gruntled anytime you like. I just don't go negative here because I like the place, and when I go negative, I lose my mind and tact.

    Okay, hang on here a second. I agree for the most part, but you agree Gardy would rather have a veteran than a young guy? Look at how he is handling his bullpen(tonkin vs burton)... Remember, a bad start for Gibson could plummet E.R.A to 6 ish...Which would be grounds for a demotion for a Rookie, but not a veteran with a contract.

    Kubes erases the threat.

    I hope someone is keeping track of team-by-team reviews this year. Feels like we have had quite a few go against us. I was at the game on Saturday, was Dozier really out on the steal? I thought the view on the big screen looked like the ball was rolling around in the glove, what did it look like on TV?

    The justification for allowing review was that it would let them make sure they got the calls right. So far I'm not convinced. Maybe Dozier was out, but there was zero evidence that clearly showed they made the wrong call. Way too many cases when replay doesn't seem to do what we wanted it to do- overturn obvious mistakes.

    --this refers to today's changed call on Dozier getting doubled off, not the steal mentioned above.

    I feel like Hicks could have given a tiny bit more effort on that one
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    I like instant replay, but watching on my tv, none of the replays showed him out, I am mad and surprised they overturned it. Probably find out later they mistakenly called it wrong, cuz it is the Dodgers, LOL

    I've had about all I can take from Pelfrey.

    Correia isn't quite that bad yet.

    But Deduno...Meyer...Johnson...all more worthy to start over big Pelf.

    How much we got sunk into him this year and the next?

    I was thinking that too, but he's probably running in an outfield that's basically a peat bog right now.

    I only watched the replay once, but he looked easily out. An MLB umpire should get that right much more often than not. He missed it that time and the replay corrected it.

    I've seen that a few times this year, which was unfathomable for a Twins team in the recent past.
