Time to start building some confidence with the guys who are going to have to get us there. Like it or not these are the guys who are going to have to get it done for the most part.

I agree. They have to turn it around at some point... the quicker the better.

It's going to be a cold one out there tonight. Hoping for a end to this losing streak!

I was hoping we would see the Opening Day lineup again tonight. It'll be interesting to see if, aftr 3 days of not playing catcher, Gardy has Mauer catch tomorrow, too.

It would be nice to get Pamelee going. It'll be interesting to see what kind of patience the Twins have with him if he doesn't start hitting (or at least have better at bats)

Maybe a win vs. a good pitcher, after their day off will spark these guys! I will not hold my breath, as this team just has no fire in their bellies. Need someone to dump the dinner table and shake this team up!

Quality lead-off AB from Span, even if ball four looked like a strike.

Mauer takes strike one looking then GIDP. Typical.

Doumit's strikeout brings the team batting average down to .159.

I don't know but you'll only have to hear him in 2/3 of the games. Think he is only doing 101 of the 151.

Well, now that Pavano put us in a massive hole, can our offense bail him out?

For the first time all season the Twins score to knot it up. That is they score a run that ties the game.

Yay!! Hopefully Caps doesn't blow a save today, assuming there is an opportunity for one.

Am I the only one who has to look twice when Doumit is hitting? With his helmet on, he looks like Kubel.
