Quiet night.

These runs are on the ump, though Deduno could have made some better fielding plays prior to that.

At the lake, avoiding this travesty.

Going about as well as expected. Another night where the pen will throw as many or more innings than the starter.

It's actually entertaining to see a pitcher TRY to strike someone out. Too bad he's just as awful as everyone else.

They've shifted to getting excited about the next PJ Walters start?

I'm here... I was genuinely looking forward to tonight. I missed the fateful 2nd inning. Tuned in just in time to see Parmelee try to pull one back.

I guess it hasn't been the start I was hoping for.

That was an inspiring top of the 4th inning.

A 1-2-3 inning.

There's a concept.

It is easy to criticize the pitching, but the hitting also seems dismal.

Will this losing streak ever end? When do we get to play the Astros?

I like to be optimistic... But the Astros would be a problem for us right now.

I'm actually serious when I say that the Memphis Cardinals AAA team would be a problem for us right now.

This is a team wide funk.

The Astros are probably wondering when do they get to play the Twins.

At this point in time, I would be afraid for the Twins to play the Astros.

I would also be afraid of the Twins playing any little league team or a team made up of middle school cheerleaders, some squirrels and a bucket or 2 of ice cream.
