The best thing that could happen is for Cleveland to stay hot and run the division, this isn’t the year for us yet. You can’t need 4-5 relievers and 2 starters in late June and expect it to work

I'm not sure how you don't just go to Jax in the 9th regardless if you're going to use him if/when Pagan gets in trouble. Just bite the bullet and take the win and worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Or just use Duffey or Thornburg. It's a 3 run lead with 3 outs. If you can't trust someone with that then they shouldn't be on the team.

Ball goes under first baseman glove; outfielder hits fence before ball gets there, left fielder has a weak arm and instead of charging the ball wait for it to get to him.

Poor fielding a Twins trade-mark.

Twins need to bring in a closer.  I know all of the popular theories nowadays says you just need a bunch of high leverage pitchers and that anyone can close.  But it sure is nice when you've got one guy that has some balls and you can trust on a nightly basis.

He’s one of them. Terrible managing to not have someone Up and READY in that last inning, when you’re asking a third inning in two nights from the same reliever.

They have a closer, they just have to overuse him because everyone else is so terrible

Stupid.   Pathetic. Doing whatever it takes to lose.  Did you see that guy bunt.  He did it right.  Didn’t jab.  Our catcher’s bunt way back that we praised he did jab at maybe not as bad as some but that was lucky.  We can’t beat Cleveland.  You see what’s happening here.  Ranmirez will beat us single handled the rest of the way.  It’s crazy to say but the season is lost from this point probably.
