GameChat – Twins @ Tigers #2, Fox, 3:10 pm

Come on Twins, you have a bunch of hometown fans that have roadtripped in with TwinsTrain to see you play.  Can we please give them a better performance than they got to see yesterday???? 

And Morneau is still not up to par – his participation in the AS Game is looking particularly questionable.  I don’t really care about that though as long as he can get back into OUR lineup.  Justin, feel better soon.

It’s official.  Twins fans are frustrated.  Not sure what the solution will turn out to be but I sure hope that they figure out what is going wrong for them.  The list of problems is VERY long.

Also on the list of things that are official, Justin Morneau will skip the AS Game.  His doctor has recommended rest because he’s still struggling with concussion symptoms.  He’s been through this too many times before to play games with it.  No one wants him to risk coming back too early – including former teammate, Corey Koskie, who knows the problem intimately.  I hope he heals up soon and can come back and join the solution after the break when the Twins magically start playing well again!
