If the bullpen is overworked send them down and get some fresh arm's. Can't that dam manager make a move - he gets so tied into certain players. He has to go.

Gardy has to go?

Gardy and Rick Anderson are the best in the business.

you, my friend, do not know anything.

As teams see these pitchers the 2nd time around the starting rotaion will be less effective. By the time we finish the 4 game series with Chicago our hopes of taking over 1st place will be a thing of the past and the season will again turn into that "rebuilding" year.

Gardy is not the problem. After losing Hunter, Santana, ect. the Twins just don't have the power to hang with teams like the White Sox.

Rincon again...

Why is he here. Why is Bass still in the Majors, every game I have watched Bass come in he has givenup 1 or more runs. Its just sad to watch him go out there

Even though I like the guy and believe he has unlimited potential, Carlos Gomez should be playing in AA or AAA. He's a liability at the plate, as illustrated by his inability to put the ball in play with one out and the sacks loaded last night. You have to score at least one run in that situation.

And I hate sounding like a broken record, but Kubel, Morneau, Young, Monroe, Cuddyer, and Mauer should be embarassed, completely embarassed, to get out-slugged by Gomez and the 165-pound monster Alexi Casilla. Somebody please give these wimps a bowl of Wheaties or a breakfast bar.

The handwriting is on the wall, it is over for this triple A ballclub and the blame has to fall on incompetence in the front office for trading away all of their stud pitchers like Santana and Garza and then bringing in a cancer like Delwoman Young and Brenda Harris. This team will be 10+games out of first by July 4th.

Furthermore, when you continue to bring in overpaid losers like Rondell White and Craig Monroe and you continue to have an infield made up of mostly utility players like Punto, Harris and Everett you have NO power at the plate and it is now showing. Honestly it is a miracle we are in mid June and this pathetic team is not buried in last place. POHLAD! WAKE THE HELL UP AND SPEND SOME OF THAT FAT CASH IN YOUR WALLET YOU FREAKIN STIFF!
