I don't know what was more frustrating, trying to catch the game on a radio traveling from Duluth to Grand Rapids or hearing the results after I lost the game 15 miles out of Duluth when it was tied 4-4. Pohlads management is terrible across the board: team roster, team management, scouting, broadcast ""network" and plans to go to their own $$$$$$ station. They should clean out the trash and go on 'CCO.

Dick & Burt: Great job Mauer... Ya he hits against KC and the dregs of the league. And why was Willingham redy to pinch-hit while having a Hamstring pull? I hope their not going to trade this guy after the season.

It's like Terry Ryan says, they don't need to and any players to this team. They don't ned to because you fools fill the stands even with this product on the field.

I laugh at ROBERTSON he is 6ft5 250 pounds and he cant throw more than 88mph.PUT your weight and legs in those pitches and get some power to get some outs.

I have to shake my head...Mauer goes 3 for 4 and some joker still goes out of his way to criticize him.

They owe it to everyone to field a competitive team??? Uh, huh. Apparently, they haven't looked at their record over the last 2+ seasons. Total meltdown to end 2010, 99 losses last year, easily over 90 losses this year. When in recent memory have they been fielding a team that has been "competitive"?

Using the Twins name and pennant race in the same sentence gotta make you laugh! Haven't seen a shot of Gardy in the dugout all year without him feeding his face. This franchise is rotten and stinkin from Pohlad on down.
