    Plouffe has turned my HR category around in my fantasy league.

    If Plouffe could improve against righties, he would be a lot more valuable. Maybe Vavra can help him with that.

    It feels that way some nights. I can deal with young players who aren't very good. But stuff like Burnett not lugging his ass over to first in time to cover the base or Morneau getting caught in a run down for no good reason? Nah, I can't watch that.

    Again, begging the question, is failure to execute the "simple stuff" (Gardy's phrase from 2011) more on the manager or the players?

    I put it on both. The manager needs to be in peoples' faces (maybe not literally but figuratively) when stuff like that happens. When it starts to happen too often, he should be running extra drills until they get it right.

    On the other hand, the players should already know better, especially a vet like Morneau. Twice tonight he almost made an out between second and third for no reason.

    I think that some of this is a result of the team developing a losing mentality and that there would be fewer flubs if the Twins were in contention.

    If you slice Manship thin enough he could be useful as a doorstop.

    I liked that other guy Mansihp better. Then again, conveniently enough, they do both pitch for the MLB's door-mat.

    Damn it... I went downstairs to run on the treadmill and the cat comes and drops a deuce right as I start, gassing me out of the place almost instantly.

    Not unlike watching Twins baseball, in a weird sort of way.

    Really makes me appreciate Frankie's effort last night.

    Burton & Perk, too.

    I am watching this on the internet and feel the same way, absent the cat. I could live with this if the Twins would at least score a FEW runs.

    Is this a clubhouse issue or just a starting pitching disease?
