I am totally lost in the world of the twins right now
It looks like the Twins are lost, too.

Great post. But in truth, it's even worse than that. At the time they made the decision, they didn't even know if Blackburn would make tonight's start. That decision wasn't made until a few days ago, after his "great bullpen" this past weekend. So truth be told, they valued one possible Blackburn start over keeping Hughes.

I don't disagree with the sentiment regarding the Twins decision making process, but if it's any consolation, Hughes was 0-3 with 2 errors in his debut for the A's.
What is more concerning is Ryan's comments before the season that the starting pitching was a strength. This is the guy we think can fix things? I hope we've just had bad luck and it turns around, but I'm not very confident.
If you put any value in what the GM says for public consumption, I feel sorry for you.
