Hopeless

It's time to face the facts I guess. The Twins have some serious problems and they extend far past anything that Bret Boone and perhaps any other single-player acquisition can fix. For the second consecutive night, the Twins lost 3-2, displaying a pathetic inability to hit yet again. I was hoping the team would work on some things over the break and come out ready to start smacking the ball a little better, but if anything they're worse. Jacque Jones is still pulling grounders to the right side in nearly every at bat, Justin Morneau is still looking clueless against outside pitches, and Boone is yet to reach base in 8 plate appearances in a Twins uniform. The Twins' 2-7 hitters went a combined 0 for 20. Are you kidding me? Is it just me, or does it seem like Joe Mauer is the only player on the team who consistently makes good contact with the ball? Literally, in our lineup of 9 starters, he is the only guy that is able to hit the ball well on a consistent basis. It shows in the stats. While he and Shannon Stewart are hitting .302 and .290, respectively, no other regular starter (aside from Luis Rodriguez, who I'm not quite ready to place in that group) is hitting above .270.

Brad Radke pitched very well tonight, going the complete game and allowing only 2 earned runs on 5 hits, but as usual, it wasn't enough for the Twins' despicable offense. Scott Ullger needs to go, no question. Even if it is not necessarily his fault, whatever he's doing is obviously not working so it couldn't hurt to bring in a fresh face and see if someone else could jump-start some of our slumbering bats.

You are right. As fans we need to see this as it is and drop the rose-colored glasses , too many bad at bats , the same result every trip to the plate , there are scouting reports for both sides of the ball. Why is it that the twins batters are so easily duped by the same formula used to get them out time after time? I know a coach can't hold their hands while they bat but if this is not getting through (and it does not look like it is) then maybe a BIG shake up is the way to go No ,not gut the team or scrap the farm system but change several players (or a coach) and maybe the wild card is a real possibility I don't know
