Houston magic number is 1.

Scott Baker said in a pregame interview that he felt "obligated to come back this season as he had a job to do..." Too bad this sentiment doesn't resonate through the entire clubhouse...

What's the level below rock bottom? Because right now this pathetic organization is trying to climb up to it.

Move over Mets...this has got to be, statistically, the worst MLB team ever to play the game. Seriously, can you think of another MLB team that was ever THIS bad?

Wow, the only thing I can compare this is a five car crash on the highway. You tell your wife and kids not to look and then you look. It is hard not to get sucked in as an observer. I noticed Slowly had a no hitter going into the six inning...I must have been crazy to think it could hold. The whole team is a train wreck and the only people still watching are the same ones who slow up traffic when they go by a bad accident so they can gawk. I really don't think they win again this year.

If you are looking for a reason to not build the Vikings a stadium, the Twins right now are the poster child. More potential revenue streams won't matter at all with Buffet Bill sinking this ship. Incompetence can overcome the best of revenue streams. One more season of this next year, and Target field will be a ghost town.

Bill Smith needs to be fired!

100 loses ... $100 million salary = $1million per game lost. If Bill Smith had any shame he'd resign. If I was Gardy I'd resign too

Gardy and his entire staff need to be fired right after the season. They are not capable of bringing this team from the depths of despair. They need a disciplinarian that commands respect and has the strength to tell players they are going to play or be gone...

Whew. I knew it was the right thing to bypass those free $80 tickets for tonight's game. Don't even wanna spend parking money for this disaster of a team.
