Gardy.... just let Gibson have the opportunity to work out of jams... this isn't even a jam. He'll never be able to go past the fifth inning if you give him the hook so quickly.

Did these pitchers not get enough work in Spring Training? To a man, they have run out of gas in the 6th inning. I blame Worley. Don't give guys innings in the spring if they have zero chance of making the team. You should know that going into the spring.

Turn around Santana, that makes sense. He kills lefties.

Mauer has gotten the ball out of the infield in 17% of his PA this season.

Whew...and here I thought he'd been struggling.

Well a clean sixth didn't happen. But no damage done.

97 pitches, but they should have left Gibson in there imo. He looked pretty good just needs to get the wasted pitches down. Reminded me of Baker today, nibbling or not getting close 0-2 and 1-2.

Honestly ... that looks a little like Sao Paolo

Another Cuban free agent the Twins should've signed.

These radio ads are doing their trick ... I really want some licorice, and some Sheboygan sausage, then go test drive a Taurus and stop at Kwik Trip on my way to the Harley Davidson dealership and Treasure Island Casino.

He did seem to be jerking the afastball around. But, when he did throw a strike, nobody could really square him up. Not a gem but I'll take it.

It's cold out, it's the beginning of the season, meh ... I'm okay with him coming out today. Next month in the same situation? Probably not.

Gardy has never worked his starters long enough in the spring. He has guys going 5 innings when other teams are going 7.

Not that we didn't know this, but Willingham is really slow.
