Tough loss to be sure. But Perez looked his new self again and the pen was outstanding.

It happens. Not worried about anything other than the bullpen.

Correction: not worried about anything other than the pitching.

 

GIbson had to go out there and throw bullpen innings in a loss. Not awesome.

Glad it isn't Gibson going, that last two times they asked him for extra innings, he crapped himself.

FWIW, Gibson pitched an extra inning just fine yesterday. :)

Anyone else think Baldelli sort of mishandled the pen yesterday as far as usage? Why only have Littell go 1 inning? I know he hadn't thrown in awhile, and threw 20 pitches, so maybe they are now fully committed to him being a short relief guy...

 

Thought maybe Gibson would go a second inning as well after he threw just 11 pitches.

First, I don't think you want LIttell out that one batter longer than you absolutely have to pitch him.

 

Second, the Rays had two lefties coming up the following inning.

 

My guess is that it was a little of both of those factors.

I would imagine people here are more worried about the length of this game than the Twins are.

 

This is one of the tests of a long baseball season, and it was a given this was going to happen.

Not ideal but he was probably due for a bullpen session and that inning probably served as such.
