You Ain't Got No Alibi, You Ugly

Childish chants are the only thing I can conjure up to direct at the Twins right now.

I hate to take an overly negative tone, but this past set of games with the Blue Jays was, without a doubt, the worst series I have seen from the Twins all year. On Tuesday, they took a big early lead, only to throw it away by giving up a bunch of home runs. On Wednesday, they played perhaps their worst defensive game of the season and blew two late leads. And last night, they got out-and-out demolished in a game they barely showed up to play.

Is this really the type of play we can expect from this team during a playoff race? I'm glad the Twins have performed well enough to put themselves in this position, but they are playing some horrible, horrible baseball right now. They're truly lucky to still be within a game and a half of first place in the division.

The Twins return to the Metrodome tonight, and they are really going to need to kick their play up a notch to revive some faith among the fanbase. This road trip was as ugly as many feared it would be, but thanks to some uninspiring play from the White Sox the Twins remain in the thick of the AL Central race. If they can't pick up the pace in their home stadium, this fortuitous opportunity will go to waste.

The Twins deserve every criticism they are getting. This road trip was a failure all around. The Twins could have had a breathing room in the division had Joe Nathan did his job in this trip. It didn't happen, and when the Twins miss the playoffs, we'll look back at that. Even if the Twins do well at this homestand (I don't think they will), does anyone think the Twins will do well in another monster road trip.

The guess here is that this Chicago series won't mean much to the Twins. It will be a coronation of the White Sox being AL Champs. That should be a disgusting sight for the Twins.

BTW, I thought the crowd was dead tonight. I wonder if the trip sucked the life out of everybody. It certainly did for me.
