To be fair, Duensing looked like a Cy Young winner compared to Correia today. It is amazing what a little juxtaposition can do.


At least we got him on the bench for bunt situations!

My 79-year-old mother has been complaining about the Twins a lot this year. She keeps asking why they don't have any pitchers. I say the Twins seem to have a hard time getting good pitchers. She says the other teams don't seem to have so much of a problem. I appreciate her insight, but of course those other teams get to pitch to Thomas/Bernier/Hicks/etc.

In game action, I'm really glad Pressly missed when he tried to bare-hand that ball. Nothing good was going to happen if that ball hit his hand.

Yeah, I was watching on delay and typed that when he came in. He was a lot better this time. I still think they should have made Correia pitch two more innings, to save the pen and to see if he could figure anything out.

I'da made him toss a complete game, and I don't care how many pitches it took.

So what's the game plan tomorrow night when this Albers guy and his 85 mph heater can't get out of the 2nd?

You're allowed to forfeit MLB games, right?

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

On a positive note, I will get to see the other half of our AAAA split squad in Durham on Wed/Thurs. looking forward to seeing Willingham, Mastro, Hicks, Esco, Parm, etc... for 1/3 of the price.

Better than his numbers veteran innings eater Correia now averaging fewer than 6 innings per start.

If they don't score at least 7 runs this inning I quit.

Surely that's been used before, no? Christ, there's been one or two perfect fits every year of the Ryan era.

I am seriously worried that our bullpen will collapse. Remember the year when Gardy overused Guerrier ? and Crain hadn't recovered from surgery ? August and September they couldn't get thru an inning without runs scoring. If Albers has a typical outing for a first time pitcher, they'll need to bring in Swarzak and he's pitched 3 innings on both Aug 1 and Aug 3.

Do you think the Pohlad boys are sitting at home watching this game?
