    Does Marquis have a secondary pitch beyond grooving an 88mph sinker with little sink? Wait, I know the answer already.

    Nothing like ending a nice winning streak with a pitcher knocking you out of it early. Good grief!

    DeVries and Bromberg on call. Marquis and Blackburn need to go away. The Twins have done a nice job figuring out their position players, it is now time to get rid of this garbage rotation.

    Finally Gardenhire pulls him. Now we need to get out of this inning and score 7 runs.

    Would it be possible to send Marquis to Rochester? No one would claim him?

    Blackburn appears to be gone. If only we could replace Marquis.

    We would want some one to claim him to pay for his salary, right? 3 million dollar bargain

    Terry Ryan shouldve been fired the moment he signed Marquis to a mlb deal. No other team was willing to give him even a minor league deal. Add this to the loss of draft pick for Capps and you have the worst gm in the bigs.

    Yeah, they can do that. But they should have already done that. 4-game winning streak and then the game is in the hands of a complete joke of a pitcher. People complain about Mauer's $23 million, but there is $3 million here and $4.5 or whatever with Blackburn . . . FAR worse payoff. The Twins could be 18 and 22 without those two.

    Marquis needs to work faster. Maybe he should move a little bit more on the rubber. Also he's got a tight quad.

    Gone? I haven't read stuff today at all. More than 15-day DL?

    Marquis sort of makes you nostalgic for the days of Livan Hernandez.

    Gone? Do you just mean the DL? Or has some transaction happened? I thought he still had a
    couple years on a contract.

    I was being optimistic that Walters and Diamond will leave no room for Blackburn to come back.

    At least Swarzak is looking good.

    You have to almost think that Ryan (and/or Gardenhire) wanted to sabotage the team, hurt the Pohlads by signing Marquis. No one wanted the guy, right? Yet, they picked him up. It just makes no sense. They could have found a homeless guy, signed him to the minimum and thrown him out there and the results would have been better.

    Double play hurt..
    I thought Grienke's pitch count was looking a little high, and he would not be in there late..
