Sigh. It would be so nice to see Blackburn hold a lead for more than an inning.


Damn. That sucked.

Ouch. Pig, what's with the 10 character minimum?

Is there a major league pitcher with worse stuff than Nick Blackburn? It's an honest question. A "sinker" that doesn't sink. That seems to be his entire arsenal.

Probably, just given the law of averages (30 teams x 12 pitchers = 360 pitchers), but I can appreciate the sentiment. Another disappointing night from Blackie.

Maybe the Twins should just pray for rain every day.

Does Plouffe have a grand slam yet?

I don't think so, and he just blew a perfect opportunity.

I LOVE it when a pitcher walks home the tieing run! (non-Twins pitchers that is)

Who here had "K, can-of-corn" in the What-will-happen-with-Burnettt-coming-on-in-a-1-out-bases-loaded-situation pool?

Not me. Before that inning he'd allowed 50% of his inherited runners to score. (7/14)

I see you're a Canadian Twins Fan. But do you consider yourself to be a Great Canadian Twins Fan?

Ah, that's why I like it when Perkins pitches. He doesn't just get the job done, it makes it interesting at the same time.:)

I would prefer less interesting.
