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

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.
