I will cheer for any team you need anti-hexed.


I think you should just focus on whoever the Twins are playing. You do not want to dilute your great anti-hex powers. They are a gift and should be used wisely.

I see Mauer has the lowest slugging percentage of any player who has held a bat for the Twins today. The next lowest is Trevor Plouffe who's number is 70 points higher.

You're supposed to rip Mauer when he's having a bad game! Get with the program.

Well, to be fair, you can't really expect ANYone to keep up with the likes of Danny Santana.

Seeing Morales on the bench surrounded by 5 young Hispanic kids just drives home the idea that the Twins need to add a Hispanic coach...or two.

The way the pen has been pitching lately... do you really pull the ball out of Hughes hand the way he's performed today?

You do when he's already thrown 100 pitches.

Why you put it in Burton's hands is a different question.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

I think Hughes kind of decides when he wants out ... at least most of the time that's what it sounds like.

Why do we always bring out Burton in these situations? He always seems to give up at least one run.

Agreed, but hey it was 6-0. One big swing and this is really close.

It just never ceases to amaze me how many bad 0-2 pitches the Twins make. There should NEVER be a ringing double on an 0-2 pitch. Never. A bloop, an excuse me check swing grounder that sneaks down the line...maybe. A pitch that can be roped? Fine his ass!

I don't see why any pitcher who had a SO going into the 8th would ever take himself out... if he did, he needs to get a bottle of "ManUp" pills and take 2...

Hey, let Casey finish. He can get a cheap save (the tying run was on deck and he only threw one pitch).
