Maybe Dick will blame Escobar's throw on the heat!

Look at that, situational hitting.

Morrison isn't even trying like Wilson. No talent is one thing, not trying is something way above that. This signing might be one of the worst in ML.

I was surprised to find out this is the first time MLB has experimented with playing part of their schedule in the summer. Been a big failure if you ask me!

Sigh... Dick claiming the heat is a factor why the Twins' pitchers can't throw strikes.

In April it was too cold to get a feel to throw strikes. Now is it because their hands are too sweaty?

Honest to God... The excuses all year long are ridiculous. It's okay to say they just don't have it on a particular day.

What's the excuse for ideal weather?

Please please please let Morrison, Motter and Wilson go. They made this offense really really really bad. Astudillo, Sawyer and Polanco can take their spots for now.

Isn't that on the coaching staff to motivate the players? Plus Morrison is in a contract year, so you'd think he'd be motivated...

Baez should have picked that grounder. It was likely an easy play. Grossman isn’t exactly fast.

This lineup would look a lot better with Mauer and Kepler in both offensively and defensively. Mauer 1st, Kepler RF and Grossman DH. Kepler hits LHP.

Kids today will never realize how exciting it could be when you found out what the new Saturday morning cartoons were going to be and how you looked forward to the fall previews.

I'm not sure how retaliating would help Escobar's arm....

Clearly it wouldn’t have done anything other than supplying some revenge for knocking out our best hitter at the time.
