What did Duensing do now?


Nothing today- I'm just frustrated with him.

Wow. Bottom of the 7th and still on page 2?

Either people are actually working or the apathy factor has really kicked in -- which is completely understandable given the last 3 1/2 games.

Or is it the last 3 1/2 months?

Yeah. Really low key today. I was hoping this game would distract me from work. It hasn't really worked.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

All those in favor of bringing up Albers say "Aye".

All those opposed?

The Ayes have it.

I think we are just matching the apathy factor of the team.

The Twins should drop Diamond from the starting rotation and give Anthony Swarzak a chance.

I think Diamond is the one you should be frustrated about!

Can we get a dateline stamp on that quote? I'm not sure which game he's talking about.

A good harbinger for the last 57 (!!!) games of the year.

Arcia now has OF and pitching duties! He really should have been rated higher as a prospect.
