Twins are nothing more than a development league for the majors. Turn that new stadium over to a real professional sports franchise.

"PIERZYNSKI: 'THE POLISH POWERHOUSE'” PIERZYNSKI: “THE POLISH POWERHOUSE,” WON IT FOR HIS TEAM. TWO RUN SHOT IN NINTH, IT WAS LIKE A DREAM. COOLED OFF MINNESOTA, STOPPED THEIR WINNING STREAK. WHITE SOX TOPS IN CENTRAL, TIME FOR THEM TO PEAK. MEANWHILE, DOWN IN BOSTON, DETROIT LOST AGAIN. AND CLEVELAND IN KC? HAVEN’T WON SINCE WHEN. YES, I’M SCOREBOARD WATCHING, IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR. HERE IN INDIANS COUNTRY, THERE’S NO REASON TO CHEER. GOD BLESS SONINO JOHN PAUL SCARDELLETTI - A CHRISTIAN

it is painful to watch this twins' team play so hard and so well only to have gardenhire lose the game for them, yet again, with his weird bullpen choices. the man simply has no good instincts for his pitchers....

One catcher plays hard, gets key hits, and has actually won games with his bat. the other catcher is little Joey Mauer.

The AJ trade brought us a boatload. Nathan...Liriano...Boof...and others. I am confused why AJ gets booed in Minnesota. When he was traded to the Giants, they were upset with him because he would sit in their clubhouse and watch Twins games. He did not ask to leave...he has nothing but good things to say about Minnesota....why the hate? He has had a great career and I wish he was still a Twin.

Twenty two runners left on base. That's how you lose. No timely hitting. What did we get for Liriano again? All those division titles between 2000-2010 seem like a distant memory.
