Here are three thoughts following the Twins 10-5 loss to Milwaukee

THE MISSED CATCH: Visions of Ray Durham and Mark Kotsay were running through my mind as Torii Hunter got locked up trying to catch Adam Lind's rocket and had it get past him for a RBI double. Durham and Kotsay's were worse, because they came against Oakland in the playoffs. ``He hit it, line drive in the lights,'' Hunter said. ``And it stayed in the lights. If it's on a line it is going to stay in there. All I could do is make the adjustment, jump as high as I could on the run. But, that was hit hard.''

ROSTER NEEDS WORK: What are the Twins going to do about their DH spot? Eduardo Nunez was 1-for-4 on Friday, but this lineup could use some pop, and there's a speed bump after Trevor Plouffe bats. Kennys Vargas apparently is just doing OK at Rochester and Josmil Pinto has tailed off after a hot start. It has forced the manager to come up with some eye-popping lineups. ``It's been challenging,'' Twins manager Paul Molitor said. ``It is kind of where we are at right now, especially with our hand being forced to use our bullpen tomorrow we need depth. We are a little limited on the bench, so we have have to rendez-vous through the DH and the middle of the lineup for now. We're looking for people to come up and help us but I don't think anyone is jumping out at us right now.''

TOMORROW!!!: The Twins need a solid start from J.R. Graham tomorrow or things could get interesting. It sounds like Ryan Pressly will be the first one out of the bullpen once Graham is done. Brian Duensing and Tim Stauffer could be used but they did pitch tonight and the bullpen was gassed when it left for Boston. That's why the Twins were relieved that Kyle Gibson was able to go seven innings on Friday when  it looked like he was going to hit the showers early.
