The Twins split with KC, another sub .500 team, but a team with more hustle and character. Now the Yankees come to town and then it's off to Toronto, whom just happens to be playing very good baseball. Where's the headline Gardo-Gone, and Andy with him?

The Royals displayed more hustle and desire than the Twins and deserved the win. Gardenhire couldn't manage himself out of a paper-bag.

im sorry but gardy might have to go. he really doesnt seem to be able to handle his pitchers well enough. thinking the pitching coach might have to be gone too.

It's 7-7, the Twins have runners on 2nd and 3rd, one out, Florimon a .233 batting, and instead of a drag bunt safety queeze or something safe, Gardenhire has him hit away. again, no more runs. gardenhire should be fired tonight. he clearly is not thinking rationally any more, and seems feeble and confused during the games. it's time for this whole staff, and terry ryan to go.

After Willingham's pinch hit ground-rule double the game was tied 7-7 and the Twins had men on 2nd and 3rd with one out. Gardy inserts Dozier in the game which was a good move, if managed correctly. Unfortunately, Gardy put Dozier on 2nd base to pinch run and Florimo strikes out. Moves like this are typical for our ho hum manager. If we score there Perk comes in and the Twins win.

It's pretty sad when all fans have to cheer for is a manager or coach being fired. I don't agree but, hey, it's amazing how many guys get the ax.

DRJSK@ Sorry, I disagree with you. I attended the game today as part of a package through work. At no time in the game today, even with the score tied, did you have the feeling that the Twins would pull it off. The atmosphere in the Twins dugout was just bland, just the opposite in the Royals dugout. This team has no fire, no character, and especially no managerial leadership. There were more empty seats on a beautiful Sunday afternoon than I have ever's the indicator of what's ahead unless changes are made.

Another mediocre effort by your Minnesota Twins continuing their inability to get timely hits with runners in scoring position. Mauer is in a 0-15 slump or something like cutting their supply of major league hitters on the roster in half. But, hey, we do thank the fans for their generosity in giving us a new stadium that greatly increased the value of our franchise and to show our extreme appreciation for their support, we promise the fans that we will field a competitive team within 2-3 years, 4 years on the outside. Thanks again, fans, for your support!

not enough. [axes]. did they really score 8! runs and lose.? missed it. done griping about poor hitting. now ? it's gravity bringing relievers back down ? find OUT which horses have broken legs; and please put them out of their? misery. OR? keep on keeping on with? [what is this] for 2 more years? gravity sucks! "shoot somethin'" sand pebbles.

Ugly game - it seems like every time the offense comes back and ties a game, the pitching IMMEDIATELY gives the lead back. And when the pitching does well, the offense IMMEDIATELY makes baserunning mistakes and kills a rally. Everything about this team is deflating and depressing. No inspirational stories, just bad losses and ho-hum wins. I love the Twins and always will, but this year's team is one of the least enjoyable Minnesota baseball teams I've seen. Gaack.
