I'm only watching to see if Mauer can win the batting title. This starting staff has nothing to prove in my opinion. We need at least two new starters next year or we'll be cellar dwellers again.

Other than Hermann, not one thing in that list interests me, or most casual fans. So little hope for the future in the callups. I will be very bummed out if more than two of these awful starting pitchers are back next year. If they are, there is no reason to keep any veteran hitter on this roster.

I want to see if Plouffe gets back his stroke and plays his position.
I want to see if Perkins can close 3 games in a row with style.
I want to see Span and Revere make more impossible catches.
I want to see Parmelee kill it.
I want to see the Twins beat the Yankees.
I want to see the Twins win the series against the Tigers.
I want to see the Twins sweep the White Sox in their final series.

I just want to see anything that can give me hope for 2013.

Also, I didn't see Revolution but was wanting to. Looked like one of the few new shows with promise.

I would like to see us play hard to the end. I understand losing so many games is hard but let's keep up the effort. Play the young players - let Herrman, Parmelee, Plouffe, Florimon, Revere get as many at bats as possible.

Sorry to say that the Twins just completed their final series against the White Sox and it was a sweep for the Pale Hose.

I want to see the Twins play with some dignity and pride. I will be one of the group that continues to watch their games till the end of the season. The White Sox series, for the Twins, was lacking of those two elements.

I wouldn't mind a Mauer Batting Title or Willingham hitting 40 home runs, but a lot of extremely extraordinary things will have to happen in the next 15 games for that to happen. I'm not betting the farm on it.

Some of mine have already been mentioned but:
Parmalee and Plouffe finish strong so we feel confident that we can count on them next year.
Span and Morneau finish strong so we can possibly trade them for pitching.
Try not to get depressed about the current starters. I think we have seen enough of the current crop to know that the only one we may be able to depend on next year is Diamond.

I just want to see Hendricks get the win under his belt--so that discussion can be over.

I watched Mob Doctor--that had to be worse than Revolution.

I didn't think Revolution was that bad. Then again, I'm a sci-fi geek. I'll watch more of it to see where it goes.
