For gawd sake, contract this team before it humiliates the entire Upper Midwest. And by all means, arrest Terry Ryan for fraud and misrepresentation and send him up the river already.

These guys are absolutely TERRIBLE! The coach, the owners and most of the players need to be replaced or the next 5-10 years will continue to look like the last three...

Gardy won't get that 1000th win. I winder if Pohlad will use that as justification for bringing him back next year for another 90+ loss season? Lost in the hoopla is the fact if Gardo comes back next year he will also lose his 1000th game. If you have a good manager like Francona and a real GM and owner you can go from 60 wins to 90 in one season, look at what the Indians did this year. You bring back Ryan and Gardy next year and every fan who goes to the park next year deserves what Pohlad gives them.

so much for Gordy's 1000th win.

That brand new stadium sure has helped the team and the businesses! What is this, the third or fourth year now with 90+ losses? Stadiums have such an excellent return on investment. That is why we're building one to be used 10 days per year, right?

Wow!! It's another great performance in an incredible season! I'm certainly pleased that the new stadium the Twins extorted from the taxpayers of Hennepin County has made the team so "competitive." It's great to know that the Pohlad family is further enriched every time someone (rich or poor) buys something in Hennepin County.

Spot on rshackleford. We were told that Pohlad couldn't field a competitive team without a new stadium. The public bought it. But what have the Twins done? Three years in a row of signing the cast offs and never weres and wonder why they have lost 90+ games three years in a row. The Twins are an absolute joke. But the Pohlads continue to rake in the dough thanks to a publicly funded stadium. And we are sadly about to do the same thing for the Vikings.

This team a lot worse then I thought they would be with no offense and bad pitching! It's so hard to be a fan of the Twins now that they are one of the 3 worst teams in baseball and have a very gloomy future ahead! Outside of the Lynx, this is the worst market in the country when it comes to college or pro sports!

The "boys" sure play inspired baseball for good old "Gardy", don't they? I mean, the man sure knows how to lead and get the most out of his players. Yes sir, that's some serious gettin' after it.

A plea to Jim Pohlad-- please sell the team to someone willing to do whatever it takes to win & who isn't interested in lining their already overflowing pockets. Sincerely all Twins Fans
