Joe says: “Just gimme another $141K.”

No Power OVERPAID Joe Mauer gets the collar. Welcome to your last place Minnesota Twins.

Thielbar: 20 strikes in 25 pitches. 2 innings, no runs, 3K's. Not bad at all young man. One bright spot in a dismal stretch. Here's hoping the Twins call up the youth movement quickly.

This could go on for a decade without major organizational changes. How many years will people support this mess?

Must be time to sign a few more St. Paul Saints players, they would fit right in with this bargain basement team. Pohlad should be embarrassed.....but I doubt it as he's too busy counting his money.

Offense is terrible, starting pitching is terrible, the true team is starting to show through after a flash in the pan start to the year. See you in 2014!

If the Twins come home better than 3-6 on this road trip I would find it surprising. To their credit they played .500 ball until Mothers Day. Look at their starting line-up... Dozier, Parmalee, and Hicks belong in AAA.

$10 million for Correia. Wow.

I am a 32 year old life long twins fan. I vaguely remember 87. I clearly remember the 91. I remember Kirby's record setting year in 94 being cut short by a strike. I remember the doldrums after that and the highs of the early 2000's. I love the Twins. That said, I am DESPERATELY hoping they fail. And badly. They are as inbred an organization as there is. The management is awful. They have some good people, but they refuse to remove poor producers. Add to that an ownership that LIED to the public about payroll and we have an awful team. I wish no harm to the Pohlads. It is their team to do with as they please, but I cannot stand the fact that they simply refuse to make the team good while the PUBLIC pays for 75 percent of their facility. I hope they lose 130 games.

Whew. This road trip can't end well. 2-7? 3-6? Detroit will FEAST on the Twins starters [although Tigers bull pen ain't great, so there's some hope] Looks to be a long, hot, cruel summer.
