Are you sure? I thought his three pitches were roped single, rocket double, and long HR.


That's just bad BABIP luck. He'll regress into a 3 ERA pitcher any day now

Swarzak stands a better chance of starting a game for the Twins this year than Worley does at this point.

He jumped at the edge of the grass. It seemed to me he thought he was closer to the wall. He doesn't look terribly sure of himself out there.

6 walks for Moore. 85 pitches, 44 strikes. Glad I didn't draft him in fantasy. Don't get me wrong, I'd take him on Twins in a heartbeat.

You think this is bad, remember in 2012 ST when the O's got beat by a JuCo team?

Ahhhhh!!! Stop! We get it! Non-Mauer Twins couldn't hit a pinata unblindfolded and armed with a laser-guided Louisville Slugger.

J/k, thanks for the updates, it's confirming that the Twins aren't unlucky at the plate tonight, they're just overmatched.

Aaaand Bartlett locks down center field for 2014. Grab some bench, Hicks and Elvis!

I realized I needed to do something to help me stay engaged with this godawful team so I'm keeping score now. We'll see how long that lasts.

Frankly, I'm stunned you made it this far. It's going to be a long......season.
