I know GARDY doesnt have any options,but alot of the time i would like to slap him in the back of the head and say quit putting HENDRIKS,MANSHIP,out there they suck.THE twins HAVE got to do something about there starting pitching.I want to break my new TV with the crappy pitchers they have.

Dude, he HAS NO OTHER CHOICE. What and the hell would you do? Put Perkins in for 6 innings? That isn't how it works with relievers. Hendriks is not big league material and they know this. Draft picks HERE WE COME!

The root cause of the problem is Pohlad. He's the guy who cut the payroll whan everbody on the planet knew the Twins had NO pitching. But Pohlad is having a great year financially while the fans get screwed. He's no different than his ol man Smilin Carl The Contractor. There is no future for the Twins as long as Pohlad is the owner. Get used to it.

This franchise is, once again, a total embarrassment. People actually spend hard earned money to watch this team?

Will they have to put an asterisk by the complete game since it was against the TWINS?

Partskcoj is correct. As long as Mr P is on charge nothing will change.

There are three awful teams in the major leagues this year. Unfortunately, we have one of them. Right now, they are one splendid catch and one 15th inning hit by the same player from an eight game losing streak.

@partsskcoj...Pohlad is losing a little too..i saw a lot of empty seats the night I went...the "paid attendance" might have been 34,000 but I still saw a lot of empty seats in the outfield. Face it people aren't showing up. And I can gurantee a drop in their season ticket holders. I think some of the fans are sending a message. They want to see a competative team on the field. Without pitching they won't compete. Period. He has the money to spend and won't spend it. He's a cheapskate owner. Been around Sid too long cuz Sid's been a cheapskate reporter forever.

Well, laddie, getting mad at yourself in Aussie might be the answer. It's off to the land down under with ye!
