    Yeah, I know, but I guess I'm just one of those guys who likes knocking his head against a wall just for the fun of it.

    Kind of like being a Twins fan.

    Will there be redemption for Deduno's allegedly dead arm today?

    You gotta be kidding me! 1st & 2nd, no out, and they get nothing?

    What, do they work on this in practice - how to hit for futility when it really counts?

    Good morning all. I am glad that I missed last night's game. The movie "Blue Jasmine" was depressing, but not as depressing as last night's game.

    Yeah, I know. I shouldn't be surprised. Sunday afternoons I'm usually pretty tired after work, so I'm more vulnerable - don't have my defenses up.

    OK. Runner on 3rd, nobody out. Just dying to see how they manage to get out of this without scoring.

    But to respond seriously: considering that the 2012 Twins offense was second lowest in Ks, and in 2013 they are second highest, the natural assumption is that Tom Brunansky has instilled in his pupils the attitude that strikeouts don't matter that much. If you look at the teams leading in strikeouts at bat, futile offenses of Houston and Minnesota are at the top, but the next three are pretty potent. Hitting for power leads to runs, and also to strikeouts, so there is something to this approach. However, it can also lead to innings like this one.

    Maybe we need to focus more on the reverse standings?
