And the Twins run themselves out of a great scoring opportunity. Unbelievable.

Jeebus, how slow is Mauer? He's not being held and he gets thrown out by that much?

Given the number of times they've done it this year, how can it be unbelievable? I find it very believable.:)

Man, what an awesome job by Duensing to get out of that jam.

Morneau's recent turnaround against lefties has been pretty incredible. Hopefully he keeps it up.

I just don't see Duensing as a starter. RH hitters just give him too much trouble.

So Duensing can't get out righties because he has a legit excuse being flip-flopped between the bullpen and the rotation according to Bert. But he crucified Slowey for saying it was messing with him?

At least he can lefties out, though he shouldn't have had to face that lefty.

There is no May and Mayer. They're made up.

Duensing should probably be moved back to the bullpen. Well, for a couple weeks at least until they think he's ready to be a starter again.

C'mon, if Jhonny Peralta can get three bases on the same interfence situation, Revere can at least get 3rd base.

OK, Danny, you wanted a chance to earn your way back? This is it. All we need is a long fly ball and we're tied.

I say again...Mauer's defense ain't what it used to be. Almost every throw sails and tails these days.

OK, what's up with this? 3 errors? This is starting to sound like A-ball.

You gotta feel sorry for Duensing this inning ... c'mon you can get out of your teammates errors.

And he had all kinds of trouble keeping the low-pitched balls out in front of him in Diamond's start against the Whities.
