In the clutch, Twins can't find gear

The team is failing at hitting with runners in scoring position, and it’s messing with the batters’ minds, players and coaches say.

Yes, the pitching reeks, but so does any clutch hitting. The Twins left a ton of runners on base today. Pathetic that we can't even beat the White Sox any more.

Have Gardenhire, the putrid "coaching" staff, and the general manager been fired yet?

Way to motivate the lads today Gardo against the second worst team in the American League. I'm sure Terry Ryan will somehow spin it that because of Gardo the Twins were able to win one game out of four. It's way beyond comical that people think the Twins only problem is pitching.

Is there a more pitiful and pathetic 3/4/5 batting order in all of baseball?

Put runners in scoring position and the Twin's batters still want to work the count...what are they waiting for? It's time to get aggressive, drive the ball, get a rally going...but no, it's much better to let the pitcher get a couple strikes on them so they can strike out, hit a harmless popup, or dribble one back to the pitcher. It's philosophy at fault, which points to the coaching staff...

Well golly gee, at least we outhit the White Sox...How ridiculous. Sox only 5 and a half games behind Twins in the race for last place. Can the Sox pass the Twins? At any rate, 68 losses down, only 22 to go to reach the treasured 90 loss mark for the third season in a row. We're on the road to 90...
