Twins fans cheer tinkering, and we hate it.

Not working for the Twinkies, who have one hit in five innings and trail the Bombers 2-0. KC's bats are also quiet today. Tigers lead 1-0 in the sixth.

Well, the Twins really only have three players who should be playing every day (Hunter, Koskie, and Guzman). Of the others, Pierzynski and Jones probably shouldn't play against lefties, there's nobody standing out in right, and Rivas and Mientkiewicz just aren't very good. So why not tinker?

Um yeah, not sure...Jones is an all-star and should probably play everyday.

LOL - Montreal scored 4 runs in the first off the Cubs on 3 hits and 3 Cub errors - 1 hit left the infield.

As for Jones - he's worse than Valentin when it comes to hitting against lefties.

Since 2000, Jones has and .854 OPS against righties, .553 against lefties.

The Twins have more than enough right-handed corner outfielders to ensure that Jones should never get starts against lefthanders.
