They tally up the injury toll and rely heavily on prospects.Yet they have found ways to win --often -- in the past several weeks.

After the horrible start, the Twins are back in it! Love to see what happens when Span, Kubel and Morneau get back. Hope is there. GO TWINS!

Fire a bunch of people, trade a bunch, or send a bunch down to the minors. OOPs, I mean, MOO-VIN' up. Eighth worst record at the All- star break

One person could help to turn this season around.. Lew Ford.

Nice double play to end the game by Alex Cadillac and Nishi. Rend Tosoni needs to head down to AAA as Tremor Fluff and Demon Young come back up. Send Alex Brunette down too. Good luck to Michael Fissure at the all star game. Glad to see Ron Gardening didn't pull Perkins after one out today. Drew Buyers even got a hit today. See you on the other side of the break, with Bert Boulevard back in the booth with Richard.

What the hell does Gardy see in Burnette? He's gotta go.

Get rid of Mijares and Burnett, and then trade Slowey for help in the pen. Twins went from 16 1/2 games back in june to just 6 1/2 back in July! They can win the central this year

Its been a great come back for the Twins from 17-37 to 41-48, especially considering the injuries, and the bull pen woes. I do hope to never see either Burnett or Mjares in a game again with the game on the line.

Great game. Now this is Twins baseball. Lot's of singles and good defense. The piranhas are back. I know RICHARD is going to be glad to get Bert back.

Burnett is a weak link lately.

Burnett needs to go, time to bring Chuck James back up.
