How many times in one season can the Twins be so unucky and have to face Cy Young? Is not he also on a pitch count? LOL, LOL, LOL. Fire the Gardenhose now.

The sad thing is that even if they win all of their remaining 22 games, which I believe they have a good chance of doing, they will still finish below .500

C'mon pitchers ... demand to be allowed to bat. Maybe you could help your own cause.

Nothing quite like Repko as a pinch hitter...the fear the Sox must have felt....

Humber was put on wavers by the twins in 2009 to make room for a guy they put on wavers less than 2 weeks later to make room for no-show-joe. It would be hard to figure out how many players that were not very good when playing for the Twins but excel when "coached" by a different team.

Have the Twins vets just flat out given up?

Our hitters must just put the fear of God into the opposing hitters.

bobquag; Lets see: Ramos, Morales, Pierzynski, Sorrento, Ortiz, Bartlett, Hardy, Blake, Gomez, Young, Garza, Crain, Guereer, Fuentes and Humber too name a few. I'm sure I'm missing some. I'll keep looking.

samihouston; Yes, yet another player whom the Twins could not wait to jettison out of here because he was cocky. I said this before, he is a very good ball player. He is a far better bargain then Mauer will ever be.
