I will admit that I am not a supporter of Matt Capps, but today I really feel sorry for him. When the Twins seemingly had a good chance to avoid a sweep and a 5 game losing streak, appropriately Matt Capps comes in for the save and gives the game away. Ugghh... Capps has not had a lot of opportunities for a save this season and today he committed his first blown save. Because of this futile team, Capps does not have a lot of room for error. A bad day for MC can be the difference between a 4 and 10 game losing streak. Matt Capps is in a bad position and the microscope is fixed in on him. Failure wise, He has no room to breathe and for him this could be a long, long season baring the brunt of Twins fan's hatred. Like I said I am not a Matt Capps fan, but I certainly feel for him and this situation he is in.

I agree. Certainly he's not the closer of the future and this will be his last year with the Twins (unless they pick up his $6M option, which I doubt), but I think too many people are judging him on last year. It's a new season - everybody starts fresh, and this year he's been the closer they hoped they were getting when they gave up Ramos (ugh!).
