Detroit looks like a AAA team on paper, but tonight, the Twins are playing like a AAA team.

Nope, because a Triple A team should be able to beat Detroit.

We probably should have optioned Harper and kept Littell up here... the clock is striking midnight on Harper's magical season.

Gonna give back those 2 runs Sano just got for us. I can sense it already.


Exactly as I suspected. SIGH.

AAA as in the Minnesota interscholastic association?

Turns out soft tossing 30 year old career minor leaguer relievers who depend on slow curves don't have a shelf life.

Harper should be dropped early. He is not going to survive in the playoff as I stated some time ago. Littell is better. Way better.

It’s over for Harper, has been for awhile.

More bad decisions for Rocco

If we'd had Adrianza in right and Gonzalez at first, we probably get the first two guys out this inning. 

Sano could throw the ball all the way to first in the air, too. Either way.

Don't know how Harper wasn't part of the July purge.I'd rather have Magill.

Let Harper finish the inning now. The more runs he gave up, the more likely he's going to be demoted.

It's sad to watch the guys struggle so much at home lately. Twins fans have had to endure some rough times the past 9 years and it would be nice to give them solid base ball during a hopeful season at Target Field.

On a positive note, Castro had a hell of a game behind the plate tonight. This game would be worse without some really good work from him.
