Twins lose again...It's getting old...

The Twins lost to the Mariners again on Tuesday. I'm sorry, but I don't feel like blogging about the game this time. It's the same thing, solid pitching (he struggled, but he got through it) and little offense.

Better luck tomorrow.

Jason Bartlett Improves
Jason Bartlett looked good in yesterday's pre-game workout, and all indications are that he'll be in the lineup tonight. Thank god! The Twins need his bat back in the lineup. Hopefully he can pick up where he left off.
