Sounds like this would have been a fun game to watch, kind of like Slowey's game almost was against the Rays a couple weeks ago. They had Sports Center on AFN this morning in the mess hall and I got to see the pick-off at 2nd. It's always fun seeing people who do the little things well! Anyone know how hard this kid throws?

Duensing might be the most important key as to whether the Twins advance in postseason.

1st ... Thank you for all that you have done, and are doing!

2nd ... The stadium radar had him clocked low 90's for his fastball, and the low 80's for his breaking pitches, from what little I could see on the replays ...

Not really!

Duensing will get some quality wins for them to make
the playoffs but once they are there the rookie in
him will come through and not help the club much.

I hope I'm wrong but you can't expect a first year
pitcher to take you deep into the playoffs when in
years past we can't even get out of the first round
becuase of quality pitchers.

Not really the key.......Lariano & Pavano...Yes!

if or when we make the playoffs, all we need from duensing is a quality start. remember last year when in the first round everyone was used in game 163, which gardenhoser had really no choice and duensing pitched a good game.
