    Sooooo I'm guessing Burton wasn't available today or something? Absolutely couldn't go.

    Honestly I've always been an advocate of bringing in the closer in tight situations like we just had. It's not traditional, but if there's an absolutely pivotal moment in the 8th inning, I want my best arm out on that mound

    I am blaming those AT&T kids for that home run.

    Yeah, I'm just being dramatic. I've been very concerned about the "rest of the pen".

    I'm sorry, my brother, but I'm holding you responsible for this latest turn of events.

    I'm reminded of the headline of the Twins portion of an SI MLB preview from the horrible 80's: "Twins loss is 9-5 job."

    Because they gave the Orioles "more" runs?

    At least we all can say we witnessed the historic moment of 4 HRs in the first 4 games.

    I think Chris Davis is trying to put a couple of zero's on his next contract.

    Fun with numbers: The last time the Twins were at .500 was April 3, 2013.
