Well I guess the crowd predicting 90+ losses didn't get the afternoon off.

Dunn loves pitch to contact. Worst rotation in the ML.

So much potential. So poor a pitching coach and manager.

The entire organizational philosophy is outdated and doomed. Underpowered pitchers with no velocity and punch-and-judy defensive specialists in a league full of power arms and sluggers. This is no strategy for winning. No ownership group besides the clueless Pohlads would continue down this road. The little-engine-that-could theme was cute for a time. Now it's just sad. Amazing how opposing clubs make this "big" park look very small. If not for the annual power shortage by the home team, Target Field would be in the middle or top of the rankings for HRs.

This is what $75 million will buy you. A few legitimate major league players and the rest, minor league prospects. The manager should not be blamed for short sighted penurious ownership.

Hey, at least Hicks is hitting, right everyone? Another 0-4 day. Does that 2HR day (his first and only multi-hit game of the year BTW) give him exemption from criticism for the next month? You cannot let a guy who's hitting .142 play on a MLB roster, there are NL pitchers who hit better than he does. Hicks fans, do yourself a favor and check out his numbers for the past 2 weeks. He's hitting? Says who?

Well looks like "Gardy" will be getting an extension on his contract!I've been telling you all,the guy can't manage.Minnesota treats him like he has a championship ring on each finger.What has he done,really?!
