Santana's Loss

That statement may be bold or misleading, cause as usual, they Twins offense didn't do too much tonight to help win, but two runs should be enough with Johan Santana on the mound. But tonight he didn't look like the dominating, Cy Young contender he has been lately. His line: 5 IP 8 hits 4 ER 2 BB 2 Ks. Thats not Santana at all. Too many walks, hits, and of course, runs. He didn't dominate hitters or control the strike zone at all. It was a very dissapointing start and it likely will cost him the Cy Young as the seven losses won't look to well against the competition.

There isn't much to say about the offense. Mauer managed to hit a hit on a 1 for 3 night, as he sits at .296. It would be nice to see him finish about .300. That would be a bright spot on the year. Morneau continues to slack wherever his is, as he now is batting a miserable .236. Our only offense came off of Jacque Jones and Matthew LeCroy, who both had two hits, and a RBI Juan Castro single.

Otherwise, the Twins lost and are now back 6 1/2 games in the wild card chase. One more lost should make basically official. Its Baker's start, so anything could happen. On a kinda-positive-but-not note, Lohse and Gardy "cleared the air" today in a meeting. Thats too bad really, cause I really want Liriano to get a start and yea, I want Lohse out of town too. At least Mays and Radke can take the heat like respectable guys.

Santana had a blister on his finger and his finger turned red after 5 innings. At least some of the explanation for his outing.

Yea the blister explains at least why he wasn't sharp and why he had trouble controlling his pitches. My real question following that then is why wasn't he removed earlier if it was apparent he didn't have good stuff and that he was only himself and the team by staying out there? If the rule applies to Radke and Lohse, Gardy should have had him out earlier because it was apparent his slider didn't have any moment and that hitters could just live off the fastball when he couldnt control his stuff.
