Twins offense still isn't getting the message

A pregame meeting telling hitters to relax didn't do much to improve the team's anemic offense in the finale of a pitiful road trip.

Of course nobody can be on base when someone (the only one) hits a couple hr's. I thought Revere had a terrible arm- Span and Carroll arent much better. Every year Blackburn sucks but for some reason he keeps getting the ball. Why?

And the beat goes on, and the beat goes on. Drums keep pounding rhythm to the brain......... la de da de de, la de da de da.

The worst hitting team since 1900? How does Vavra have a job after today? How do ANY of the coaches have a job?

Fire The Hose???It's never going to happen,there'e nobody in there right mind that'going to take over this mess.Let's try the Pohlads,this season is all on them,and will be for years to come.Hit them at the gate,then will see things change.They got there stadium,and the Vikings get zip.

And the march to major league baseball history continues unabated. 1 win 3 losses, 1 win 2 losses per series. The quest to 121 losses keeps getting very attainable while 3 Stooges, Pohlad, St. Peter & Ryan twiddle their collective thumbs. The Humpty Dumpty Twins are broken and all the minor leaguer's in their system can't fix them.

Thank you Terrry Ryan. Cannot wait to spend 9 bucks on a hotdog at target field this summer. Sad.Boycott that place.

Where are all the homers to defend the Marshmellow Boys, Ryan, Gardenhose, the Pohlads etc.? I stick with my 6yr old prediction: Pohlads promise to spend an extra $20-30million per year on players if given a new stadium, they spend money first year or two, milk the new stadium for 3-5 years, cut payroll in about year 3, sell club by year 5. I'm much closer to my prediction than the homers have been that Mauer and Morneau are not pansies, last year's record was a fluke, this year twinkies will win division, gardenhose is a good mgr, LOL
