Minnesota Twins misfire on all cylinders

No music played in the Twins' clubhouse Tuesday night. Minutes after an 11-0 loss to the Orioles, there was nothing to celebrate and so much to lament, and so the only sound that carried through the mostly vacant locker room was Carl Pavano's voice, one taking the blame for a loss that was too big, too thorough to rest on any one player's ...

I sure am glad we got this new stadium so we can generate more revenue to field a more competitive team.

Way too much hype played to these guys for their fearsome lineup these past couple years. Getting old and under achievers. Biggest need was a Good #1 pitcher the past couple years and all they did was subtract pitchers and get a Japanese infielder not tested at the MLB level. Front office thinks new stadium will keep the fans happy. Wild did the same thing and look at the past two seasons, many empty seats. Between a rock and a hard place over paying Mauer and now stuck. Never should have let him wait until December for surgery. Seems a familiar theme in MN Pro SPorts: Let "star" player choose rehab and when it fails, do surgery that causes them to miss important part of the seasons.

let's see, the Twins lose 11-0 BUT Pavano still feels he made some good pitches.....how effen dillusional is this team? They are soft, have no leadership, no fire, no desire, no management, the teams 2 biggest stars are complete pansies, wow, how far has this group fallen?.......the good news I guess is that they are in last place now so they can't really fall too much farther.

true enough but you will still have to pay $12 for a hamburger. Why would you want to fork over good money to see such a bad product in the first place? Use that money , my friend, on something useful, oh say, like a tank of gas for the family truckster.

If the fans wait for a couple of months, they should be able to get in free. If they keep on losing, I cannot see paying to go watch them, so they may as well give them away We know there are a few players that not are earing their money. And maybe, the should look at the Gardi. When teams get this bad, they make changes. Twinkie management should not be afraid to do what they have to, to make the team better. Never mind what everyone else will think, do what is best for the team.

Ol' Carly Poo the 'ace' gives up 7 ER. Joey N gives up a 3 run yard sale. The Twinkies get blown out 11-0 and are in last place and are 30th in MLB in runs scored. The Brewers win 9-0 and are tied for 1st. Ahhhh.....life is good! LOL!

Time to get rid of Mauer. He misses almost as many games as he plays. Next time get a real man, not a sissy, mama's boy.

Baby pop-outs, granny groud-outs, with the occasional bloop single or infield single. I might have some optimism if they could just hit the ball hard even if it is caught. Brutal and embarrassing to watch.

Just like those Tom Kelly teams of the mid 90's, they'll be out of it by May 1st.

A prime example of the Twins failure to plan ahead for problems. The manager seemed to think that the overrated Cuddyer should be the backup plan for every single position. So as soon as two guys go down, he's forced to use scrubs that wouldn't make the roster on the other 31 teams in MLB. Add no backup plan in place for when Mauer goes on his yearly month or more stint on the DL, no backup plan for the terrible Casilla who has had one decent half season in his entire career, and pitching thats just plain mediocre on the best of days, and you have a recipe for disaster. But I'm sure that Gardenfire will tell us how proud he is that the team is battling.

Tied for first in the weakest division in baseball. And it won't last, 3rd place at best at seasons end.

The Twins take an interesting approach with men in
scoring position. They stand at the plate and expect the opposing pitcher to hit their bat. I
noticed that the Orioles swung their bats at the
ball. The Oriole pitcher threw that relatively
flat curveball up in the strike zone all night
but our disiplined Twins hitters didn't fall for
that old trick, then for good measure they took
the mediocre fastball down the middle, too. What
the heck was the plan anyway??? All teams have
injuries which create opportunities for others
to step up. Mauer and Morneau seem content in
their part-time roles. It frees them up for more
TV commercials!!!
