This team is a mess offensively. Take away Garver's ABs in this Cleveland series and the Twins would have been swept. Last couple games in Boston were terrible offensively as well.


The Twins could have easily lost 6 straight. Somehow they won 3 of those games. I guess that's the bright side, but this team looks absolutely as bad as they've looked all season right now.


Washington is battling for their lives, then the Twins get Cleveland again.


Don't worry, they'll turn it up again once Detroit is back on the schedule.

I'm speechless. I'm in utter shock. The Twins willingly gave this game away. They had the tying run at the plate in the bottom of the 9th and Rocco let LaMarre hit when Cron and Sano are on the bench and available. Un F**king Believable. 

cron pinch hit for cf miller in the seventh. lamar entered in the eighth to play cf.


sano, however, is a diffferent story.

I don't mean to be an apologist for Rocco's lineup but I think I know what his intentions are. The Twins are going to win the division this year (yes, there is a 00.1%) they could choke but it's a statistical anomaly. Rest these guys and let's play for the ALDS. The Indians NEEDED to win today. The Twins not so much...

The Twins NEEDED to win yesterday and did so. We had to have one out of these three games with Cleveland and we got it. We need at least one in Cleveland and we had better get it.

Yeah but they have Washington and Cleveland on the schedule for the next 6 games, with a 5.5 game lead. If the Twins are down by a half-game the next time they see Detroit, that's gonna be a whole different kind of pressure.

They haven't been unbeatable against Detroit this year.

Don't expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong.
