Chris Archer continually looks annoyed. Considering he's got the lead, maybe the Twins should take this personally.

/ started to say take offense, but it's beyond obvious that we want them to take some offense

Boxberger: 13.3 k/9.

It seems like every team we face has 3 or 4 guys coming out of the pen throwing hard.

Why don't we?

The Twins are the least fascist team in the league.

I wonder about the quality of the coaching at the lower levels.

Just glancing through the Rays' pitching staff, I'd say that developing great starters is key. Makes it easier to tell a hopeful young starter, "hey you, yeah you, you're a reliever now." Which is what seems to have happened early with Boxberger and McGee.

He was from a parallel universe where that's the norm and where the Twins are still in contention.


How do we get there?

Nice examples of concentration on defense by Zobrist and Longoria this inning, staying focused under difficult circumstances.

I am ready for the Twins to begin trading for prospects.

Trading what for prospects? Oliva's rookie card?

Willingham. Corriea if you can. Morales and Suzuki unless they agree to extensions. Anyone in the bullpen not named Perkins.

Gardenhire. :roll:

Just in time to see the winning run come to the plate.

It was a little tongue in cheek with the frustration of the last coupla games.

It's proven fact participating in the HR derby messes up your swing.

Well, the Twins are messed up.

Doubt if it had anything to do with the Derby.

Ugh.

Except MLB has an article where Stanton is saying exactly the opposite.
