Can The Twins Re-Emerge Or Are They Done?
The Twins were swept in Arizona over the weekend and are now 15-30 and 14 1/2 games back of Cleveland for first place in the American League Central. The bullpen blew leads for the Twins on Friday and Saturday and Alex Burnett gave up a run Sunday that caused him to take the loss. With Glen Perkins going on the disabled list an already weak part of the team got weaker. Matt Capps was one of the few guys the Twins could count on late in games but after he blew the game Saturday I’m not sure the Twins count on him anymore. I can see the hitting turning around this season and maybe even the starting pitching getting better but with the bullpen struggles it seems unlikely that a full turnaround will happen. That’s hope I’m wrong.
