It started in spring training, and he tried to say, "don't worry", I'll be better once the season starts.... tired

back to trip A. Our bullpen isnt much better.

Who's up for having Perkins start every game?

Baker and Liriano have been great batting practice pitchers so far. They were supposed to be the 2 studs at the top of the rotation. Baker is probably still injured. Liriano looks fine out there, but grooves a fastball down the pipe at least once each at bat and it is getting drilled by the good hitting teams.

Perk and Blackie are the best we got right now.

dont worry after the all star break the twinks will turn it around, thats what they do if they would have got off to a fast start that might make me worried

Rick Anderson was on the radio today and said Baker is feeling great. Arm isn't tired at all and no soreness......Sounds like it is a confidence thing.

Shouldn't have to wait that long! Shoot it's only been two and a half weeks.

Baker pitched well today and 10Ks is a good sign...Then again, they were playing Cleveland. Hopefully he takes this into his next start.

I'm not or have I been that worried about Baker. Pitchers go through these types of things.

He'll be fine IMO!

Nice game last night, Gardy should have known better than to let him throw the 8th. Although a shutout complete game is nice, you could definitly tell he was gassed. if we scored 10 runs every game we could afford some of the 5 run innings we seem to give up so often.

Good to see Baker on a roll lately.

100 plus in 5 innings and only 1 run to me means a terrible day at the plate for the royals.

Kansas City plays a lot like the Twins - work the pitchers deep into the counts - foul off a lot of pitchs until they get their pitch - try to get the starter out of of there early so they can get to the Twins bullpen. Fortunately, the Twins bullpen held up last night and Nathan is nasty like always.

Yeah...Baker kind of struggled last night, but yet got through five and only gave up one run. When a pitcher can do that on a night without his best stuff, it is good.

Baker and Slowey have come around nicely. If Liriano can get a bit more consistent, and Blackburn and Perkins can be decent at the back of the rotation, the Twins can make a run here in the second half.

But they could still use some bullpen help...

The new guy Keppel sure looks good. Hopefully he can take some of the innings and save the 8th inning boys. smile

If he keeps pitching the way he did last night that would be fine by me!! Or for the last month and a half for that matter.....

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
