To go along with their SO record, they batted .188 tonight. A team that can't pitch or hit is about right where it belongs in the standings. They'll soon drop below the Whities and latch onto last place. To make matters worse, I'm going to the Vikings game tomorrow. UFFDA.

My prediction: 95 or more losses. Keep moving up that reverse standings. Our hope lies in a higher draft pick.

Proud Pohlads. Depositing more bags of cash into the bank with satisfied, delighted smiles. Who cares about baseball when you're bankers who just own a baseball team as an investment, and not as a devoted passion for love of the game. The commissioner should look into how disgustingly blase and nonchalantly the Twins ownership runs this ship. It should be criminal to own a team and not care for it, to not even lift a finger to make it competitive when you have a loyal fanbase spend their nickel and dime to build you a stadium after 15 plus years of whining and complaining by your father about how lousy the Metrodome was and crying poor about not being able to field a competitive team because of it. Yeah. Thats a Major League Baseball owner for you. Penny-pinching, cheap, and ethically wrong from top to bottom about how to run a professional sports team. Absolutely disgusting.

"Punch and Judy" is an old baseball term for singles hitters with no power. "Punch and Judy" hitters of yesterday would be a welcome addition to this bunch of minor league disappointments.

Twins pitchers should sue Twins hitters for non-support. Tonight was just another grim reminder of how poor these guys actually are, at the plate.

The height of apathy: the organist playing "Charge!" to a mostly empty stadium.

I have given the Pohlad's exactly $0.00 this season. I won't go to Target Field until there is a product worth watching. 2015??

I did go to Target field tonight for my annual game. I had no idea I was going to witness history. Congrats to the Twins for setting the new record for strikeouts. That was a pretty apathetic bunch out there.

This is one of the Twins most morbid efforts in the history of the team. There is so little talent on this team that I feel sorry for the one or two guys who are actual baseball players. The rest of the guys shouldn't even be in the big leagues--not their fault. The strike out record is an ironic trophy for this horrible year. I'm sure they will make a hundred losses: can't hit, can't pitch=100 losses. I wouldn't go to a game if the tickets were free. After fifty plus seasons as a Twins fan, I'm done. If management doesn't care, how or why should I? Adios, aloha, bye.

74 down, 16 to go for that Big 90 mark for the third year in a row. And, don't look now, but the White Sox are just a game and a half behind. Soon, last place will be ours. And "Gardy" will continue to lean over the dugout rail expressionless and motionless...very strange.
