Ricky Romero threw a four-hit beauty as the Twins continued to do nothing on offense, losing their sixth in a row.

Wow...just wow. So incredibly tough to watch. It is really pointless right now to watch this team. The offense is beyond bad. It is downright embarrassing. And no solution seems to be coming anytime soon. I have had as much patient and hope as anyone but this is looking more and more like a lost season. If things do not get drastically better by mid-June then the Twins need to become sellers and start to look to next year.

that last out (and strikeout) by Cuddyer was so predictable. Throw him a breaking ball on a 3 - 2 count and he will swing and miss as it end up low and outside. Everyone in the world knows that Cuddyer will swing and miss at that pitch all day long.

This team needs a shake up. It is time to fire Vavra. I understand he is probably a pretty good guy, but something has to happen. They won't can Gardy...yet. They have to start some place, and Vavra seems like the most likey to go. It should be done sooner rather then later.

You know, I wouldn't mind if they were just plain bad, but at least they might be competitive on some level. This team, however, is so bad that you have to back to 2004 to find a worse team in major league baseball. I'm not sure this team can win fifty games. Sorry, but I don't watch non-competitive sports. Too depressing. Bless you Harmon Killebrew for all the fine memories of a wonderful athlete and true gentlemen. This current team doesn't deserve to stand in your shadow.

ok. so according to this article, delmon, kubel, and nathan were the ones that didn't come through. everybody else must have played stellar and nobody else left anybody on base?

Cruddyer = predictible strikeout. When can we get rid of this loser?
