Debacle. Twins - 7; Angels - something less than 7

Probably a term I'll use a lot this year, but let's take care of this one quickly.

  • Steve Finley sucks. That's all that can be said. He can't hit. He can't field. He's essentially worthless.
  • Paul Byrd. Well, it's not pretty. He actually wasn't awful tonight, but, well, he wasn't good either. I'll admit, I've been completely wrong about him so far.
  • D-Mac. He does a lot of things well, but apparently thinking isn't one of them. A baserunning mistake cost the Angels a run. Another fielding mistake led to a run. Seriously, Dallas, it's freaking Nick Punto. You don't have to play on the outfield grass.
  • Estaban Yan. I'd be more concerned about his crappy outing if the game weren't already a fait accomplis.
There's not really much else to say. It's going to be tough to win a division championship if you can't win more than two games in a row. And they're gonna get beat on Sunday, so they better win tomorrow, or they'll be out of first place by Sunday.

So pretty much a pathetic performance all around.
