Tori Hunter: home run. Morneau: swings bat, injures wrist: out. Mauer, sore knee: out. Yeesh! And so it goes.

Get Gone Gardy. This team continues to stink it up. Something needs to change. How about a different leader?

That doesn't sound good I hope he's OK. On a side note, you can't win with bad pitching period

Burroughs needs to be sent down ... too many chances to succeed and he has failed them all. Gardy needs to be fired yesterday.

He can't even hang in there as a DH, what a wimp!

The guy is done. Period. Just collect the insurance money and go find some body. ANY body.

Let the excuses begin!! Time to clean house. This is simple. Fire Gardy and his excuse-making, in-denial staff. Replace them with Paul Molitor as manager, Bobby Cuellar as pitching coach (the guy that taught Liriano and Johan their change-ups), and Tom Brunansky as hitting coach. You can keep Jerry White, while finding a couple whinos on the corner of seventh and fifth to replace Steve Little and Scotty Ulger.

If/when Gardy "resigns"/gets canned, I want to see the Twins hire from outside of the organization altogether. I do not understand why Twins (and Gopher) fans have this obsession with keeping things in the family. Think about it, is that really a logical solution? Someone please explain this mentality of thinking for me.

Our pitchers pitching slow pitch softball and hitters thinking they're playing football to be injured so much.22 games played, 22 games allowing 3 or more runs. Trailing in 20 of 22 games so far. 0-12 when scoring 3 runs or less. Is there a bottom?
