Twins win, and GM Smith sounds like he is a buyer

With the team in contention despite being under .500, look for the Twins to add a relief pitcher -- and maybe more.

With Span returning, there's no reason to keep Young. Trade him for a serviceable SS or catcher and let's finish this season strong.

yes, keep span in rochester - don't want to take a chance with that concussion - Joe slid feet first into catcher tonight with contact-not unlike span's feet-first slide into home in early june- god forbid another concussion victim this year- does nobody on twins want to try to win this pathetic division this year?

First it was a couple games in a row playing 9 innings before the brought him back. Now it's 6 or 7 days doing that? Kind of a big weekend to try and figure out if your team is going to buy or sell dontcha think there Billy and Gardy? Wouldnt you want your best team on the field? I give up trying to figure these morons out.

Great, now lets send that slob Mijares down, and get a couple of middle relievers without giving up Span.

Burnett needs to be sent down too; or even better, release him

One good thing...it's harder for Billy to make a bad trade if Span doesn't get activated until August 1st.

It's official, Bill Smith is delusional. Contention? You're 9-8 since the break, a .500 record for a team 6 games UNDER .500. Am I missing something here? Sell you idiot, sell!
