It appears, that the Twins make a lot of bad throws to 1st base either off line or in the dirt. Not too many are airmailed but most are low forcing Morneau to catch or stop them. This is putting him in harms way a lot of times as well. I agree Harris should have made that play, he jsut didn't want any contact. Time for a sit and think about it. Cuddy seems to be having more problems in RF that I have seen in sometime. Concentration problem? Well there are not too many losses at home so Twins have to win the next few again. Go Twins.

There have been to many times, in the highlights alone, that I have seen the outfield overthrow the cutoff man. And its costing us games! Time for someone to sit Young and Gomez down and teach them more on this.

Now, as I don't see to many gives live, I have to ask: Can Gomez and Young reach the catcher on a throw? What highlights I see, tend to say that they are either close or accurate, but not both at the same time.

I know their young, but pleae get some practice/training in on it.
