First, Twins

Awhile back, I talked down on the Twins chances of making the post-season and Jesse disagreed. Still wanna take the position Jes? Granted, this was before Torii Hunters foot fell off, something neither of us could have been predicted, but come on. I knew the Twins were gonna suck way before you knew they would suck.
The Twins lost 5-2 last night, their 17th connsecutive loss. Joe Mauer is hitting .082, and Jaques Jones is batting -.136 with men in scoring position. Brad Radke, pitching against the Red Sox tonight, recently set a new single season record by giving up a home run on the first pitch of every single game he has started this year, while Justin Morneau is back on the DL after being hit in the face with a pigeon during batting practice.
I like their chances but little.

Ben,
Joseph wants to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Is it ok for kids his age?

True the Twins are sucking right now. But let's face it, they have always been a team that thrives on moving runners over, getting big 2 out hits and manufacturing runs. All three things they have not done lately. Plus they do not have a threat for the 3-run bomb...which hurts.
At the time I said they would make the playoffs, they had a decent record, better than last years actually. And who would have thought the Sox would keep playing close to or over .600 ball? And when they did nothing at the trade deadline, especially after Hunter got hurt, I knew they were done....

Ben-I'll teach you a new song by Alvin and the Chipmunks meet the werewolf.
Gwen-I hope you're having a good time and I'll have fun at Disneyworld.

Love, Joseph
