It's not the humidity, it's the offensive ineptitude

Posted at 5:22 PM on August 7, 2007 by David Zingler

High humidity has a way of making me crabby, as do anemic offenses, which brings me to our punchless Twins, who have been shut out a league-high 10 times this season:

April 7, @ White Sox: 3-0

May 4, vs. Boston 2-0

May 10, vs. White Sox 3-0

May 17, @ Cleveland 2-0

June 2, @ Oakland 1-0

July 1, @ Detroit 1-0

July 3, @ Yankees 8-0

July 17, vs. Detroit 1-0

July 24, @ Toronto 7-0

August 6, vs. Cleveland 4-0

This makes me sick:
If the Twins had won all three 1-0 losses and both 2-0 losses, they’d be in first place right now.

Other reasons for disgust:
The Twins have scored the fewest runs in the majors since the All Star break.
Justin Morneau has 1 hit and 0 RBI in August.
Joe Mauer has hit 1 HR since June 30.
