Hendriks shows his best but gets nothing in return

Eric Thames' eighth-inning homer saddled him with a loss, but it didn't completely tarnish an efficient three-hitter.

But, of course, no changes needed in the front office or on the field. Gardy could lose 162 games and still get renewed by the Pohlads. Wow, what a cush job and pushover family to work for.

Earth to Terry...you need a thirdbasemen in the offseason. He's not it....don't care how much "skill" you think he has. He's not it. Prime of his career? What prime?

31,883 at the game tonight. Who are these people who'll pay to watch these clowns? Sadly, nothing will change on the field until that number drops substantially.

Hendriks pitched a very good game tonight and had nothing to show for it. He actually gave up less hits and struck out more batters than Hernandez. In his last 14 starts, Hernandez is 9-0 with a 1.40 ERA, 100 strikeouts, 17 walks and a perfect game. Too bad Hendriks came up against the red-hot Hernandez tonight or else he would have had his 1st win. But he showed his potential, hoping he keeps it up and continues to improve.

Starquest..do you seriously think that if that number went down...he'd spend money? really? he's a billionare he can lose it...until he is EMBARASED FOR THE FANS AND THE PRODUCT HE'S GIVING THEM...no change will be made on his part...gee guys get it all ready..

This team has to be one of the WORST teams in the history of history when it comes to clutch hitting. Morneau hits a leadoff triple with 0 outs and we can't score him...balls don't even make it out of the infield. Inexcusable!

elguevon1: but chances happened twice before that with runners in scoring position. Both batters struck out, Span and ????? and the worst part is that Span struck out "looking".... You and others are right though. It is as if the management went out to find the worst hitters in baseball with men in scoring position. This team has some potentional super stars (Revere) but there are a few people on the roster that just should not be there. How about a pinch hitting specialist? Butera on the bench? LOL

If I were Pohlad, I wouldn't change a thing. The worst team in the American League is drawing over 32k fans a game. It would not make any sense to spend more money to get nothing more than the same attendance. People will head to the ballpark next year just like Zombies even though this team is the worst team in the American League for 2 years in a row.

Twins get their best pitching effort of the season, the go ahead run on 3rd with nobody out in the 7th...and lose. Nothing new to see here folks, move along.

Twenty some games below .500 Gardo..maybe you pinch-run for Morneau and attempt a suicide squeeze play...anything...is better than what you ever do...which is nothing that the opposing team doesn't expect. You had nothing to lose last night...and everything to gain, like some credibility. Didn't happen. Man that third catcher sure came in handy again last night..you know the one...the guy with two passed balls and could have cost the game on Sunday. Again..pathetic.
