Know how all those other teams ball parks look empty because ownership has pretty much said "screw it"? Yeah, that's the Twins in a few years once fans get fed up with this ****.
Certainly possible. God forbid...

We get them here from time to time on the local public channel 45 (same channel that does the State tournament). When my dad was Wild season ticket holder they would give him free tix here and there. I never did get to one of their games. They don't open the upper deck at the X for their games - it's all lower deck seats. Oh yeah, and their cheerleaders are hot.

Pavano has been spotty, Liriano is a head case, Baker and Gibson are having Tommy John and, well....Oh brother. This is just so hard to watch. It's actually painful these sad sacks. To actually wear the uniform of the one team that has ever brought world championships home. They don't deserve to wear it. I deserve to wear it as much as they do.




Forget this, I'm watching the Devils for the rest of the night.

And Humber (Sox pitcher who just pitched perfect game) was a Twin back in '08-'09.

On a positive note, Tom Kelly is pretty close to being the baseball version of Don Cherry without the xenophobia.

So that makes how many good pitchers weve lost to the AL Central? Or just the AL as a whole?

Seems like the only pitchers we keep around are the ones that suck.

True enough. He is very much a journeyman and no one saw the 21st PG in history coming from him in a Sox uni, but the irony of it for us stinks like an old used jockstrap. Particularly in our current state of distress.
