  Now the regular right fielder and No. 2 hitter, he credits coaches with helping tweak his hitting approach.

Revere said it, now the Twins need to make the move. Get rid of Vavra and bring in Brunansky. He can coach these kids and maybe help Mauer and the rest of the "senior" Twins....

I agree...Bruno should be up here. You shouldn't have to send someone down to get the help they need.

I agree with the previous comments. I will add, perhaps it is time for the ownership to stop counting the dollars coming in from the demanded outdoor ballpark, and start trying to field a team the community can take pride in; face it, this team is being laughed at on the national level.

The major leagues are not a prep league. Players LEARN in the minors. Established players who have shown they can play use coaches to help them out of bad habits or ruts. Guys like Revere, who have many holes in their games, are sent down where the teaching is, and where winning is secondary. You don't develop players in the majors. You tweak them.

It doesn't matter who goes where, as long as Gardenire is managing the Twins won't go far.

OK, chpete, Gardy and his staff are gone, and now you have a problem You need a manager, bench coach, bullpen coach, first and third base coaches, batting and pitching coaches. You are in charge, Name each. Oh. We're "going in a different direction," because so many here advise a housecleaning. Each man must come from outside the org. No Bruno. No Cuellar. Have at it. You created the problem. You fired them. Now, replace them. Try to be more creative than choosing Francona or Molly as your manager.

Revere talking about the help he got from Bruno must not sit well with Gardy or Vavra. Bruno might be the one to help Mauer become a power hitter. Management won't make changes during the season, but another big loosing season should make for changes in the off season.

WITH DEVRIES IN THE MINORS INSTEAD OF MASTRIOANNI AND DOZIER AT SS INSTEAD OF CARROL OR CASSILA, THE TWINS HAVE A HIGHER MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB. BY NOW, ALL THE FANS KNOW THAT ROCHESTER HAS A BETTER COACHING STAFF. DID ANYONE ELSE NOTICE THAT VAVRA TRIED TO POINT OUT TO MAUER THAT THE CAMERA WAS ON HIM EATING SUNFLOWER SEEDS AND LAUGHING WHILE EARNING $148,000 PER GAME TO NOT PLAY?

I'll chime in... Time to bring Bruno to the show. He's earned it!

Can we just play the weak sisters of the league for the rest of the year?
