IMO, Baldelli left Bundy in there too long.   He should have taken out in 2nd inning.    Pitching staff killed Twins this season.   

He obviously didn't have it.  Yes he should have been pulled

especially since Sanchez isn't going to be used in the starting rotation.

The Twins looked different at the end of the game, but still lost.

If Polanco, Buxton, and Kepler cannot play starting next weekend the Twins are done. The outfield is struggling. Celestino and Gordon look tired and Cave is sadly overmatched. Garlick is still swinging but should never set foot into the field. Time to lay it all out.

Need Buxton and Polanco for sure.  Kepler has been lost at the plate for weeks.

In August Bundy had 5 starts, all quality & he was limited to less than 70 pitches in 3 of the 5 starts & 71 in a 4th start - the Twins only went 2-2 in spite of him pitching well. In his 5th start he pitched well and was allowed to throw 86 pitches, the Twins won. In his 1st start in September he pitched 5 shutout innings and removed after 66 pitches.

Now in his 2nd start the streak of good outings ends as he gives up 4 early runs, so you'd think he was be removed even earlier - Nope, Baldelli leaves him in to take a beating giving up 7 runs & throwing the 3rd highest number of pitches this season, 94. Twins lose 7-6, it's very challenging for a staff or a team to succeed when managed like this. It makes no sense to continually remove SP's early when they're having successful starts & then leave them in for one of their highest pitch counts when they're getting shelled. Rocco needs to go.
