These three games were more discouraging than the four games in the Bronx Bandbox in May. In many ways, the Twins played well in that road series. In this series — even though two of the games were superficially close — the Twins were really never in any of the games.
The starting pitchers nibbled. Well, maybe not Francisco Liriano; he just plain didn't throw strikes often enough, which has always been an issue. Brendan Harris, as detailed in a previous posting, sabotaged Anthony Swarzak's start on Wednesday; on Thursday, Harris sat and it was Matt Tolbert with a pivotal misplay.
I'm not going to dwell on this fiasco any further.
