The Twins are done.  The starting pitchers have decided to join the hitters at sucking.  I guess they have decided to give up.  Real professional.  Gardenhire has no control over his team.  He should be fired, but the cheapskate owner will never do it.  There will be some rebuilding for this team next year.

Looks like the rumors on rebuilding are starting already!

Twins' Hunter believes he might be traded

The Twins and Expos were almost retracted a few years ago anyhow.  The Twins have been able to take that Central division recently, but they really are first round playoff fodder.  This team is not going to win a championship.

And I think retracting a team with such history like the Twins was an incredibly stupid idea by the league.

The cheapskate owner was the one who came up with the idea from what I've heard.  I would like nothing more than to see him give up and sell the team to someone who cares and will keep them in town.  It's frustrating.

I wonder if the Yankees are more likely to go through the Red Sox (1/2 game back) to take the AL East or go through the Indians (1 1/2 back) to take the wild card.

Well, if the Indians keep playing the way they are (especially beating up ChiSox last night), I think it'll be the White Sox that are on the outside looking in at Cleveland, Boston, and the Yanks...  :P

I can't believe that the Sox had a 15 game lead over Cleveland/Minnesota in August, and now it's down to 2.5 games!  Plus, I'd say that Cleveland has an easier schedule remaining...

Cleveland has the following 10 games left:
Chicago White Sox - 2 games
Kansas City - 4 games
Tampa Bay - 3 games
Chicago White Sox - 1 games

While Chicago has these 11 left:
Cleveland - 2 games
Minnesota - 4 games
Detroit - 4 games
Cleveland - 1 games


Too bad the Twins crapped out or they could be in the mix too...  :(

I can.  I really never thought that the White Sox were the real deal.  Buehrle and Garland are way overrated and their offense really does not scare me at all.  Their defense is mediocre.  I think even if the White Sox make the playoffs, they'll just be the replacement for the first round playoff fodder that the AL Central usually is when the Twins are there.

It now appears that Palmiero will say anything to try to keep his HoF hopes alive...

In other news, the Twins pitching staff is a mess - Mays is hurt (again), Silva just had surgery, and Lohse is hated by everyone at the clubhouse and probably headed out the door after the end of the season...  :(

Well, well, well how the mighty may have fallen.  The White Sox I mean.  The Indians have 3 more with KC, 3 with Tampa Bay and then 3 at home with the White Sox. 

Since Ozzie turned around and gave to the "choke" sign to the Cubs fans during game 6 of the 2003 NCLS I would love to see "what goes around comes around" to Mr. Guillen. 

It probably won't happen but I would be laughing if it did happen.

I really hate that Guillen is the Sox manager.  I have been a Sox fan since the Seaver and Fisk days.  In a way I'm loving this year because there's a chance the Indians and Sox could make the playoffs, and behind the Royals those are the only two teams I can say I'm a fan of.  But now I'm torn between wanting the Sox to win because of my long-time fandom, and wanting to see them implode because of my dislike of Guillen.

Right now I'm leaning toward implosion.

OK, can someone please explain how they have won already?  If Boston beats them tomorrow, they tie for the lead in the division, right?  Which should force a one-game playoff, right?  I'm perplexed.
