I have a immense dislike for Lorenzo Cain at this moment. How dare he steal that homerun from Plouffe. That is just rude.

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

I really think Plouffe has been getting some shoddy luck with the batted balls lately. He hit a few on the button in recent days that were caught, and now Cain robs him of a HR.

Danny is ragging on some of the Twins for shoddy defense like Herman missing the cutoff man three times today.

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?

Nothing today- I'm just frustrated with him.

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

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!
