Winning a division, or a wild card spot, is serious business and hard work. You don't win it with a starting line-up that includes Abernathy, Punto, Tiffee, and Bartlett as the sum and substance of your offense. I don't care how good you think your pitching is.
I haven't changed my mind on the Jacques Jones situation. Jones, by the way, should scratch the Red Sox off his list of teams to sign with in the off-season.
He'd be talk show roast by now there. They take a pennant race seriously there.
If the Twins are going to field line-ups like the one they've sent out there for the last two days, they should at least provide rebates to season ticket holders.
and when luis places a half-hearted tag at third and jumps our of the way in the middle of a heated wild card race...this team is already dead and buried. they just don't know it yet.
