They need more than a team meeting to clear the air from this latest stink fest. The Twin Cities must be down wind from Milwaukee, that was brutal, just brutal.

The game was embarrassing, just plain embarrassing!

Can we trade Joe Mauer for a six pack of Milwaukee's Best.

Maybe the Brewers will trade us back Carlos Gomez for Mauer and the Cardinals will trade us Nick Punto for Nishioka and Valencia. Oh, and maybe we could get Brian Fuentes back for Nathan. I'm sorry Young got hurt, but unless his foot was dangling from his leg by a strand of skin he should have at least tried to get up to go after the ball. Revere, catch the ball. Valencia, learn how to throw.

"Young left on a stretcher after misplaying Betancourt's fly ball in the fifth" ... I really hope the guy is okay but let's face it, Delmon Young might just be the worst outfielder in the history of baseball. the guy is just plain defensive suicide!!!

Carlos Gomez is a joke. I've never seen such a light hitter celebrate a home run as much as he does. If I were him, I'd do as little to draw attention to my hitting as possible.

Delmon is hurt? Crap. Where will we find a .250, impatient hitter with poor defense and an average arm to replace him?

sranning44Jun, Why do you insult such a fine beer?

I'm with you guys. I'm a die hard baseball fan but Twins fan first, and they just got spanked by a much superior team. Twins need a lot of help and things need to change fast. I do hope Delmon is OK for his sake.

Even bad teams have win streaks and we ain't very good right now. Way too many injuries this year..... and now we have signs of implosion from within. Gardy has his toughest job to do managing this group. His best offensive players are either out for a long time or are playing hurt or can't find it. Eh. What a year.
