Every outing has been a struggle for Nathan lately. I hope he's just going through a rough stretch and not battling through an injury. It sure would help a lot of nerves if he got back to being lights-out pretty quickly.

...for being too cheap to keep Moss. That trade hurt the Vikes almost as much as giving up all those draft picks for Walker. He's going in the Hall of Fame on the first ballot... as a Patriot. Twins have to STOP giving away their Hall of Famers like Carew and Santana.

Chuck Knoblauch is the biggest ass to ever put on a Twins uniform. Spoiled little baby gets a World Series Championship and all of a sudden he is all-world. He is a snob and it made me smile when his game went to hell. Hey Chuck: First base is over here, not 25 rows up! Noonan!!!!!

Amazing, I never heard a word about what a jerk Chuck K was until he was traded....and I followed the team quite closely....the same goes for Garza, AJ,many others. I sense revisionism at work

Liked smoking weed but nothing about his personality. AJ was always running his mouth and agitated many opponents and supposedly some umpires. There were folks who felt some umps squeezed Twins pitchers because of his mouth. Take it FWIW
