They flounder without paying for quality pitching, then jettison their power hitters... "Quality Pricing"? They should be paying people to come to watch the slop out there in the field...

Pirates are out on Morneau....just traded with the Mets. My guess is they will both be here, unless they are willing to do it for a salary dump. Knowing how the Pohlad's roll......

"Against Oakland and Tampa [Bay] and the Rangers and the Royals and Indians, you’re going to see our best club,” Ryan said. “We have a responsibility to the other teams in the league to make sure we put our best team out there.”-they're quivering in their shoes big Terry.

I love it....The Twin's are raking in the cash but want to dump more salary and refuse to sign decent pitching. There is always and excuse. Back in the dome they said they needed a new stadium to get the revenue to compete with the high price teams. Now that they have the stadium they continue to dump salary with the Pohlad's laughing all the way to the bank.

The use of the term "power hitters" adds a bit of comic relief to a truly dismal ball game.

By what they mean by power hitters, is that they generate a lot of wind power as their bats swing through incoming baseballs.

Hey Twins fans, there's no reason to be so glum. We now have 73 down and only 17 more losses to go to reach the 90 loss trifecta. 90 losses 3 years in a row. Quite an accomplishment.

I don't get it. The Twins stink. How does losing good players make them better?

The usual suspects are thrown under the bus. Not that it will matter. There's nothing that can help this bunch. I want to care, to have something to root for, but this team really sucks.

The Twins franchise is simply a mess. No meaningful help for 2014 unless Diamond returns to form. We have minimal power and except for Mauer no great hitters. Everyone looks to Sano and Buxton as the great hopes. Sano is struggling at AA but Buxton is doing well in Fort Myers he might be the real deal. Terry Ryan is unwilling or unable to understand the new realities of being a General Manager. Our coaching staff while not having much to work with does not instill a positive attitude and fundamentals are waning. The Twins Franchise is a mess and no "All Star" game weekend will change that fact. The Pohlad regime doesn't make big changes then the fans need to send a message by staying away.
