Twins score 7 runs in the first inning. Carlos Silva's sinker is not sinking in the first inning. His sinker is not sinking in the second inning. His sinker is not sinking in the third inning. His sinker is not sinking in the fourth inning. Finally, Mr. Gardenhire figures out he should put in a new pitcher.
Mark Buehrle becomes the first pitcher in baseball in over a CENTURY to give up 7 runs in the first inning and still win the game.
I would not feel so frustrated if Mr. Gardenhire did not have other options. But he has a deep reliable bullpen and plenty of ready arms in Rochester. But instead of utilizing the strength of the organization, sending Silva down to work on his sinker, we clobber ourselves over the head.
I have not felt this kind of frustration since pre 1987 Ron Davis days. OMG - what a horrible feeling. Nightmares.
Where is TK? He needs to be our savior again and talk some sense into some people. The management is off the tracks.
