Molitor is a taint (the Twins thread)

Postby JichaelDick » 17 Jul 2007, 23:52

Here's the thread for all things Minnesota Twins, who are now 7 behind Detroit after a 1-0. Oh, well, the Twins have hung in pretty well considering they have no Liriano and have been platooning Jason Tyner, Jason Kubel, and Lew Ford at the DH spot.

It's about Time, this goddamn sotsg bias against the upper midwest is sickening.

Kubes can hit, needs more ABs, the rotation's comin' together, the bullpen's still killer, but the bats need something. Where are you Rondell White? By god, I'm praying for the return of Rondell White, what's become of me?

They're still goin' pull this off...though I'm waiting for '08 and the resurrection of Liriano as well...but I ain't givin' up hope. The Indians are fueled by smokin' mirrors. This thread is the juice the Twaaaaaaaans need.

I actually agree with Kubel...if they'd leave him alone and put him either in left or DH him, he'd be fine. Playing him every once in a while isn't helping him or the Twins.

Tyner and Punto are sucktastic, although at least Punto gives you a decent glove. Rondell White is bad, but he's better than the Tyner/Ford combo of doom.

I'm looking forward to '08...Liriano back, Santana in a contract year, a solid punch in the middle of the order with Mauer-Cuddyer-Morneau, the emergence of Boof, Garza, and Baker...who knows?

How does that Tiger bullpen do it? It's a miracle everytime they don't blow a save, a bonified divine Miracle.

Gotta get a bat, gotta get a bat and give Kubel chances to redeem himself, and maybe trade Nathan and turn Neshek into the modern-day 3-inning per save Rollie Fingers.

While I normally would say getting rid of Nathan would be a mistake, I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to trade him and maybe get a couple of actual bats.

Santana should start killing people. Seriously. 11 fucking runs in 7 losses (well, technically 13, but 11 while he was in the game to take the losses)...just sad.

Santana is in full-blown Dominican Koufax mode right now; it's pathetic they wasted an easy W with him on the mound.

San-tan-a! San-tan-a! San-tan-a! At-ti-ca! At-ti, wait - what was I saying?

Santana's Venezuelan, though. I got your point, though. Hell, the Twins offense is about as inept as the Dodgers old offenses were, too.

Haaaaaaaha, the murky muddy waters of my marijuana addled mind mixed up Liriano & Santana's ethnicities. My bad, my bad. Once again, Dick, you are correct, and the Twins offense scores as much as you.....

Aw, couldn't resist.

Goddaaamn Tigers Bullpen, How in the FUCK?

But can't blame them; no, no, no no no nono, it's the bats. Just terrible execution. Cept Kubes, obviously. And why, oh why, do many many closers shit the bed in non-save situations?

And More-No is canadian, cut him some slack. You know all those people are born with mental problems ranging from necrophilia, to conservatism, to speakin' French, to Michael J. Fox and his exaggerated movements in campaign advertisements, to golfing.

Fuck You, Canada.

Now, now, the Tigers did the same thing a couple of weeks ago in the same situation. And they ended up getting a run out of it. So, I understand what he did. It's just that he was SO obvious about it.

And our offense is back in 2005 mode. Why, oh, why can we not do better?
