One fan's wishes for the remainder

Well, what can we say? The twins have finally proven, over the last two weeks, that they will be battling for a winning record, and nothing more. With that, here are some things I would like to see, for the remainder of the year:

  1. Finish above .500: This would make me feel that everything finished where it should.
  2. The reappearance of 2k6 J.Mo: I hope that Justin can find his stroke and calms down. We need to see that same willingness to punch the ball over the SS head again. Have you seen his shift lately? It is like he is Jim Thome. Lots of justin's success last year came about from his serving balls the other way for singles and doubles.
  3. DFA Rondizzle: Thank you Rondell, thank you for your effort. But you just are a shell of the amazing hitter you were in the early 2000's.
  4. Give Kubel AB's: I am not a Kubel backer...but in his defense, it is hard to really criticize a guy who maybe sees the field 3-4 times per 7 games. Was he an amazing hitter in the minors cause he was hitting minor league pitching, or does he just need to have consistent AB's to acclimate him to the bigs?
  5. Hit J. Mau leadoff: Give it a shot, maybe not every day, but try it...see if he likes it. If nothing else, we know Joe will make the pitcher throw at least 5 pitches right out of the gate.
  6. Bring up the kids: Let the kids play in september, and maybe before. Couldn't hurt at this point.
  7. Mentally sound play: After the Punto bunt demonstration, Mauer making the 3rd out at 3rd base, and numerous other mental mistakes the past few weeks...I would be content to see the twins get beat, as opposed to beat themselves.
  8. Get out in a productive manner: I am not saying that I could do this...but I also don't get paid to play ball. I feel, strongly might I add, that a pro hitter should be able to get out in the way his team wants him to 65-70% of the time...if not more. It has been very frustrating watching a lead-off double not get moved to 3rd on a ground ball to the right side, for example.
  9. No more calling for Gardy's job: I laugh at how a manager leads his team to the playoffs 4 of 6 years he has been a manager, and nobody wants to give him credit. Yet, when the team misses the playoffs 2 of those 6 years, he is horse-shit. Ya cant have it both ways.
  10. See the guys have fun again: They all look like their dogs have been (allegedly) taken by Michael Vick. It would be nice to watch the games, and see some happiness in the guys I choose to root for. Do they represent me as a person? No. Do I lose sleep when they lose? No. But since I do invest time and energy into the ball-club, It would be nice to see them enjoying themselves for the remainder of this year.
Nothing too outlandish...just wishes.
