Fading Fast

I'm starting to get pretty down on the Twins. Their deficit in the AL Central has now grown to 9 games, they've lost 5 of 6, and they just don't seem to really be trying all that hard to get it going, as evidenced by a lackadaisical 7-2 defeat tonight at the hands of Jeremy Bonderman and the Tigers. What the Twins really needed in this home set against Detroit was a sweep to get back on track, and that goal is now already out of sight. At this point, all they can hope to do is pull themselves together and win the series. And they need to do that, because the White Sox and Indians (and Tigers, perhaps) are simply not going to let up.
