Another great move by the Twins, no wonder they are 11 games out of first with idiots like Ryan, Gardenhire, Anderson calling the shots.

"He's a good pitcher. He's a hard worker," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "I don't think anybody is going to do more than he did to get back on the field. He was working hard at it from the first time he got a chance to pick up a baseball. He never quit on his rehab. He didn't back off a bit. He has that special desire and ability and he uses it." Then why did the Twins let him go? The game of musical chairs they've been playing with AAA pitchers this year has cost them a lot of money, at least one lost player, and no results. I don't pretend to know everything about this, but it's my view that Twins management and coaches are clueless and incompetent. They need to be replaced with people who both recognize and are willing to develop talent, and coach players effectively to improve their talent.

Can't believe Texas left Nathan in for TWO innings last night in a meaningless game. He's having a great comeback year and they'll just burn him up for the end of the season and WE'VE SEEN IT HAPPEN BEFORE ! ! !
