The walk to Kubel to get to Morneau showed just how dangerous this Twins line up ought to be re frequently. There are very few guys in this line up when healthy that do not pose some sort of problem for opponents.

Let's not overlook two important results from the pitchers today. Duensing provided a good start for the team and Nathan pitched well in a non-save situation - a wise move on Gardy's part. Joe needs the work and this saves Capps for Sunday of needed.

Nice to see more than half of the line up is batting over 200. Nice win Boys!

By scoring 1 runs, wouldn't to correct term be that the Twin's offense finally got "On Track", not "untracked"?

Glad to see Ray Richardson corrected his mistake. I guess the some writers actually read these comments.

It was right the first time.'Untracked' is a commonly used word describing a rut. Rut = track in these descriptions. Untracked means out of the rut.

It was nice to see the Twins finally break loose. Duensing pitched a great game, and both Kubel and Span deserve a lot of credit for remaining so consistent at the plate since the beginning of the season. Something should be said for Casilla as well. The Twins seemed to rally behind him when he got on base. If he could get his OBP up, we might see him cross the plate fairly frequently. He is fun to watch motoring along the base paths and around the infield. He has very good range but seems to have a tough time with the long throw from deep in the hole.

Duensing was the diffrence in the game giving up only one run over 7 innings. Nice too see some run support for a great pitching effort.

Baseball is a game of luck and the Twins had a lucky day. If it's skill, they will do it again the next game.

Luck is involved, true, and baseball is a game of inches. An inch or two makes a big difference around the plate first of all. Duensing pitched a great game given that the Cleveland hitters were very patient. With some luck, maybe the Cleveland starter today will come apart as Carmona did and not have command of the inches around the plate. Good pitching does beat good hitting, and the main reason the Twins have won two straight is more because of solid starting pitching. Baker had a great outing against Baltimore, too.

I agree and was about to make the same comment too. I don't know, maybe this is one of those ldioms that intentionally means the exact opposite of what it sounds like, sort of like those who say " I could care less" when they really mean they could not care less. On the other hand, maybe the writer just made a mistake.
