Yeah, I am glad to see it. And honestly I would be a bit sad to see Correia go, I think he is unfairly used as a lightning rod by some for "What is wrong with the Twins" ever since they signed him for 2 years.

The fact is, the guy has been healthy and pretty reliable for this team as a #5 starter. However the time has clearly come when the team has guys who likely are better immediate options (or at least need the experience)


Yeah this is pretty true, I'm not a Corriea fan and his time has come to make way for others but really his biggest crime was just being the only guy they went and signed in the year he came, therefore making him the best by default. He pretty unfairly took a lot of crap for simply not being what people wanted, from myself included.

Yeah it was just extra mind boggling because they turned last night into a training game because they thought that little of the Twins and their need to throw their ace against us.


And with the A's winning last night it pretty much nullifies any advantage saving Felix was supposed to give them, looking a little sheepish today is my guess.

Twins will win tonight then take 2 out of 3 against the Rockies, this would put them at 6 games under .500 heading into the break.

I'm impressed.

Awesome job Spirit? Nice to have someone push the optimism\pessimism meter in a positive direction. After the last two years I was feeling a predictable collapse. Someone had to step in and not let negativity keep the team down. Maybe you can get me thinking that they can reach .500 this year yet.
