Glen Perkins throws Rick Anderson under the bus during the Twins broadcast

The Twins closer Glen Perkins is not known to be diplomatic about expressing his opinion on teammates.  Here is a great article by Jim Mandelaro at Rochester, on the subject.   Today Perkins was on TV in the Spring Break Twins' broadcast in the second inning.  Then, without even being prompted, at about the 27:21 mark of the broadcast (if you have mlb.tv, great way to check) he said the following:

"How much better we pitched last year, compared to years past. Some of it is Neil Allen"

This confirms what a lot of us knew: Rick Anderson never cut the mustard as a big league pitching coach and now this is openly confirmed by one of his pitches, in so many words.  Unfortunately the Twins held to someone like Rick Anderson way too long...
