Four innings for Pavano. Wow

Pavano gives up another run. We knew what we were getting when we re-signed him: A guy who gives up 16 more runs than we can score, and still manages to work 6+ innings in the process.

Wow, Pujols giftwraps an out for the Twins.

Since when is Burnett a long-relief pitcher? Because usually when a SP goes out in the 5th inning, the team goes to a long reliever to take care of 2+ innings.

I guess Pavano's strategy of laying 80 something mph fastballs right down the middle wasn't working.

Another run scores, but at least Pujols was erased from the basepaths

Wow, Doumit must have some wheels if he is hitting triples

Look at the bright side -- it's looking more and more likely that we will get the #1 draft pick in 2013.

Twins finally score a run, but it comes at the cost of Danny Valencia getting out again

Has Gardy determined whether or not Komatsu has the wheels to steal bases, and will he take advantage of it now he is on 1b with a walk?

I am not sure it makes sense to attempt a steal when down by 4 runs.

Going off of glunn's comment, have people started looking at who we might be drafting in 2013 with our (almost certain) #1 pick?

Butera was hitting pretty good at Rochester, and hopefully that can continue. And no one seems to dispute his defensive abilities.

Span goes 0-3. Not good for a lead-off hitter with his team down 5-1 and with a runner on 3rd.

Span's been the lone bright spot this season. I think he's allowed a bad game here and there.

We probably should have expected it, with him possibly still being a little shaken after crashing into the wall to catch a fly ball.

Burnett was almost out of his jam, having induced two flyouts, then gave up a single to Wilson.

Burnett then gives up a single to Trout that scores Kendrick. Certain guys in the bullpen are going to have to perform better if they don't want to be sent down to the minors or sent through waivers, esp. Maloney and Swarzak

The Twins are the Washington Generals of the MLB. I hope that changes.

Top 3 guys in our lineup today: 0-9, 1 K and 3 LOB. Then as I am writing that, Willingham slugs a HR to left; DOPE!

Good one, except the Generals never won or tried to win.

[quote name='Bark's Lounge;16139]The "Son of Sal" needs to be captured and put in his rightful place as a Single-A Player or a minor league coach. I must say though' date=' the "Like Father Like Son" saying has some validity in the Butera family.[/QUOTE']

And the fact that Sal was arguably the better player should really end any argument about Drew playing.

Butera is Minnesota's best player tonight. This is depressing.

They won six. I think that actually makes it more sad.
