Way to go Twins!

This is why this team is going to [PoorWordUsage] us all off this year! They beat Boston 3 out of 4, should be on a roll and get a break facing a ice-cold team in Toronto. What do you know? We're getting it handed to us! This is going to be a tough year with these ridiculous ups and downs.

toronto's staff has been the best in baseball. their starters have been absolutely sick.

Maybe so. But our fundamentals have been off this game, and our pitching staff should not be giving in to an ice cold offense.

This is a young team, stuff like this will happen! Just remember we are in first place! Look back a few months hardly anyone thought this team would be even a contender, here they are in first place and they are still complaining shocked . Give them a break! They are 38 games into the season and like 3 or 4 games back from having the best record in MLB.

Well, Brendon Harris, Michael Cuddyer and Adam Everett are not young players and they should not be making mental errors. I have no problem with gomez airmailing it into the dugout...not sure how a center fielder can do that but...hes young.

Harris has to turn that double play, everett has to come up with a better throw home, and cuddyer must make that catch that went off his glove.

It is a young team and an enjoyable one...but no one wants to see the veterans on the team making errors on the field. Hopefully they can continue to stay in the race and their pitching continues to keep them in games.

We are in first place and hopefully we can remain there...

Everett's cut off throw to home was the weakest throw Ive ever seen in the history of baseball. He should be demoted to little league.

I think tonight's game has been much more frustrating. We have made a couple huge mistakes on the basepaths. I know that Gomez and Young are only 22, but they pulled a couple of bonehead moves tonight. Boof also was frustrating. But, I guess you gotta take the bad with the good with a young team like this...

I guess after Gomez threw that ball in the dugout Gardy asked him to sign the ball for him. The Twins are satisfying me this year so far. They are doing better than what i thought they were going to do. I am just enjoying watching these young guys develope into a great team. Give it a a year or 2 then start complaining.

I think fishinphilth is right on...this is a young team, and you will see inconsistency like this with a young team - particularly young starting pitching.

There will be a lot of rough patches as the team develops, but there will also be some good streaks when these young players show what they are capable of.

Patience this year...and if all goes according to plan, this team should be a contender next year and in the new ballpark year of 2010.

Anyway, I am off to the Black Hills and then on to Denver for a little vacation...Twins vs Rockies at Coors Field this weekend...

Yeah, the twins are young...that argument will get old for sure if they continue to make these blunders...

What the heck was Boof doing on that throw to third!

typical MN team. Play to the level of the opponent. We either rise up to play a great gameagainst a great team or stoop down to the level of a lesser team. Vikes, Twins, Wild no matter.

Just sit back and enjoy that is why they are there, for us to enjoy the game.

That wasn't boof's throw to 3rd, it was Jesse Crain...

They are young and it is still early in the season. Don't get your panties in a bunch until the all-star break

Yeah i realized that after watching the replay again. What a horrendous throw! Another ugly loss on a game we had chances to win...this series was a hole bunch of blunders!

Kubel blowing that stop sign was terrible!

I agree with you guys on being patient with this team. There will definately be some growing pains this season. This young team will excite you and frustrate you throughout the year. If we can keep this team together for a couple years, I think we can seriously contend. Look how far they are coming already, I mean many "experts" had them last in the AL Central with NO chance of contending.
