It’s frustrating for all of us. I’m not sure what’s more frustrating… the impotent bats or the way everyone and everything associated with MLB seems to conspire to assure the f’ing Yankees advance as far as possible in the post-season. I mean… I get it… the money guys only pay big bucks if New York is involved. But seriously, does that mean you have to assign the biggest dickheads in the MLB umpiring corps to assure that they not only have twice as much money to spend on payroll but also get every break possible from dicks like Hunter Wendelstedt?
But even if Bud Selig and his buddies are conspiring to do everything possible to assure the Yankees progress to the World Series, that’s no excuse for most of the Twins hitters to bend over and take it. I’m absolutely disgusted by the demeanor and attitude of this ballclub right now. It’s not everyone. Pavano gave a noble effort. The relief pitchers did their jobs. But where the hell is the heart of this batting order? They have no heart, apparently. Maybe it’s time to consider getting rid of some of these guys this off season and worrying less about who’s a “good guy” and more about who’s willing and able to show some guts and stand up to the damn Yankees.
I guess for now we just sit back and try to enjoy what’s left of this season… and hope that someone on this team will “grow a pair” in New York. – JC
