The September 1st roster expansion couldn't come any sooner, no?
Apparently nobody on our squad can figure out the vaunted Kansas City rotation except Michael Cuddyer, and perhaps it's because he's the only one without an excuse. Mauer (0 for last 15) is tired and "adjusting", Kubel (0 for last 16) has bad knees, Castillo rolled his ankle (and is hiding plenty of other problems), Liriano has his arm thing, Rondell and Radke have their shoulder things, Hunter and Stewart have their foot problems... is anyone doing just fine? Maybe Punto needs to spread the word of his yogilates routine around.
Did we really just lose to one of the worst teams in baseball? Twice in a row? At home? With a lead?
OK, we just squeaked one out. Whew.
Didn't KC take 2 from Sox and has taken something like 11 of 14 from contending teams lately? Apparently Twins are not the only ones having troublkes with KC.
I'm not surprised. Even though they have the worst record, I don't consider them the worst team in baseball. DeJesus and Sweeney can actually make that team fairly decent. We should still be able to outhit them, though...
