I couldn't agree more. Maybe we should question the heart and desire of the manager. Fire Gardy. Bring in a manager who isn't afraid to call them out or light a fire under them. Bring in a manager who knows how to win a playoff series.

Thanks for the division championships Gardy. I want a manager with some fire. I want a manager who is going to win me a playoff series. I want a manager that is going to win me one F#$#@$# playoff game. I want a manager that cares about winning baseball games.

"I walk through the training room, I talk to them every day. If a guy's hurt, he's hurt," he said. "I don't question heart or desire in this clubhouse. These guys have it. I know they want to play."

Spoken like a true coward who lets the inmates run the asylum...

I regret the decision to buy tickets for games this year. The manager is a loser. The players are losers. Management has no desire to do what it takes to win a World Series. This team is incredibly boring to watch.

"Young officially has a strained oblique muscle, but Gardenhire said Wednesday, "There was no soreness."

So anyone can take time off whenever they feel like it? This how you run a championship team?
I've lost all respect for this collection of spoiled brats and management that won't do anything about it.

Why would anyone buy tickets? The Twins are fortunate to get away charging overpriced tix and inflated concessions!! I happen to go to a game, the tix was $60 lower level (a friend paid), and the seats were same size or smaller than sitting at Dome! Two hardshell tacos and one soda =$11.00!!

Side note: Did you see Luke Hughes field one of Alexi Casilla's embarrassingly frequent short-hop throws to first base? Hughes laughed about it, as if to say,'That was fun, do it again, mate!'

Even Casilla had to smile. I like Luke Hughes. He's got a little pirate in him.

Blaming Gardy for injuries and illness is idiotic! Things simply cannot get worse for the Twins so perhaps over the long course of the season the wins will come though there is such a thing as digging too deep of a hole. The questions of who to trade this summer might get dicey!

they got their new stadium and they got their nice little divison title flag to wave above Target Field....that is ALL the Pohlads wanted...anything else is a bonus. They will let Gardy manage as long as he wants the job. Nothing will change with this team unless the fans stop coming to the games and that appears it won't happen anytime soon. This is the worst collection of Twins ballplayers in at least 10 years. They sit back and take it all, the manager allows his top players to play when THEY want, not when they should. He does not like to be questioned, he is God to this organization and he will remain so as long as he wants. This team has NO leader, either on or off the field, no fire, nothing. They are the softest bunch of pansies I have ever seen on a Twins team. They are embarrassing to watch, I can't really even watch them on TV. I actually watched a Walton's rerun today instead of these a55 clowns play....totally disgusting. The inmates are running the asylum and it shows...

This bunch of pansies don't want to go the extra mile. Cuddyer is right they have no passion. Gardenhire don't want to wrinkle any feathers and wants to be nice guy Gardy which will get him fired because he has no nads. It never works to have the inmates run the show.

Blackburn: "I just couldn't throw strikes," he said. "Everything I threw went straight in the dirt."

Obviously not..
