Rants (not Rantz)

How long until the revolution starts?

Six and Sixteen. The worst record in Major League Baseball. Let that sink in for a second. Now....

We gave the Pohlads their precious stadium, and I can only imagine they've all developed Scoliosis from sitting on their cash-filled hands because they haven't done a thing to put an appealing product on the field in the last two years. They just sit back and light their cuban cigars with the $20 we plunked down for a hot dog and a beer at their monument to excess. We're quickly becoming part of the same class as the Pirates and Padres, the travel agents of the baseball world. The question is, what do we as fans do about it, short of toppling the statue of Carl and Eloise (a la Saddam Hussein)? I mean sure, I loved the mid 90's when I could buy an upper deck general admission ticket at the dome, tell the security guard I was going down to the Rally Room and go sit on the third base line, but you still had to sit through that glorious 1-2 punch of Butch Huskey and Chad Allen (...on steroids for God's sake). And this is the direction we're heading folks... If this keeps up, we as fans need to voice our displeasure by either not watching, not going to Target Field or if we do go, making sure our voices our heard. They need some tough love. Or maybe Trevor Plouffe just needs some Andro.....

    Well, personally, if I had spent over $112 million last year and $94 million this year ... and saw it swirling down the drain the way it is, I'd be out kicking some b*tts in the team leadership (front office; field staff; players all included).

    Bah, humbug.

    And yes, they made money last year and undoubtedly will this year but it's not hard to see that profits may be getting smaller. Face it, if the profit margin is 10% (hypothetically), I'd rather have 10% of $300 million than $200 million.

    It has started already, it is only going to get worse and worse as the Twins continue to lose after horrible pitching. They have no way to rectify the situation looking at the pitching rotation this year. At this point they are really going to have to dump players soon.
