Well, it is better than losing.

I'd be happy if we can break even @ .500 with a season plagued of injuries

Two things about the Twins: 1. Watching them lose is better than watching the Vikings win. 2. Their fans are awful, no-nothing front-runners. If No. 2 doesn't bother you, then it doesn't apply to you,

Answer is simple: Twins were apparently a one-man team.

Frontrunner Twins fans are those who only became fans because of Target Field. Fans who come here and gripe do so because the way this season has gone has been so terrible that the true fans need to vent.

Hey Mr Smith, you decimated the BullPen, and signed Mauer to a 23 mil contract. Enough said

Look in the mirror Billy Smith....there is one of the main problem. Please've done enough damage.

Injuries and "tough" schedule?!?! Twins would have won nearly 10 more games if the entire bullpen hadn't been shown the door....Billy, you need to own up that your decision to not bring back Guerrier, Crain, Fuentes, Rauch, and heck, even Flores and Mahay is what is really hurting this team. I know JJ Hardy is injury prone, but to trade him for Hoey?? Give me a break. Come on, Billy, don't sidestep your mistakes. By the way, BallFour, very poor disrespect, but labeling your fellow fans as awful is an epic fail.
