Not a surprise. After such a strong start (2 weeks), he just hasn't hit.
It's hard to see someone who had so much success in a Twins uniform for a long time end up with this fate. It's more annoying to read and hear commenters bashing someone who has done so much for the organization over the years.

Maybe it wouldn't have made any difference but its something to think about when we talk about Singleton-like contracts.
All the best to you, Jason Kubel. Thanks for a lot of good memories (including this big one in 2010:
Edit: Oops, missed that Seth had already posted the video link. Great memory!!

I'm starting to believe that they may actually keep Hicks up for his defense, now that the rest of the order is getting stronger. Parmelee is back to his old tricks. Maybe he is destined to remain a really good AAA player.
I've hated the way Kubel has played lately, but love the player. He is a great pro. I hope he really has had an impact on the approach in the locker room
To help facilitate this near .500 start.
Who goes down when Fuld is ready? Hicks? Parmelee?

Along with Cuddyer, Morneau and Mauer - he was part of a fearsome line-up that brought us some great memories. Baseball is a cruel sport, our efforts to reclaim past glory are often never to be. Thanks Jason and best of luck in what comes next for you.
