Hendricks is one of many on this staff who aren't good enough to pitch in this league. I'll miss baseball when this season comes to a merciful end, but not this "manager" and not this team.

How is it that all other teams in the league can hit home-runs in Target Field? Even willingham has given up for the year!! Good news from Arizona.... Jason Kubel hit his 30th homer this year! Good for Kubel!!

BP off Liam. Rockets all night. Let this be the last of the Australian scouting expeditions.

All those HR balls were up in the zone and flew out faster than they flew towards the catchers glove. Dude, your never going to win again unless you get the ball down, down, down in the strike zone. come on your a professional pitcher for pete's sake.

I guess the Twins were presient. Kubel is a flawed part time player. After all he only hit 30 homers. Sure glad the Twins brain trust could get rid of this guy so thed have money to lure the super star from Japan

The big bad Yankees come to town and the Twinkees start shaking. It's hard to pitch and hit when you're playing scared, that been Gardy's MO on the Yankees his whole career.

Hedricks was outclassed. It was also obvious that his manager did not prepare him. But the TWINS' problems were really revealed in the bottom of the first half: Span & Revere get on. Mauer gets out in a key at bat. Willingham walked to load the bases. And then clutch Morneau had a pathetic at bat with a strikeout. And Doumit matched a pathetic a badt with a perfect out to the short stop. What are supposed to be leaders, are not for the TWINS. You can count on them not to get a hit in key situations.

The men vs. the boys!!!

Yankees can beat this pathetic team in their sleep....40 yr old Pettitte 10-0 in his last 10 and this hitting coach and the mgr keep their jobs??...Makes a lot of sense.

Gardy's record against the Yanks is a monumental disgrace. Why is he still the Twins manager?? What a joke!
