I've Seen Enough

It's only July 27th, so discussions of record and numbers and games back aren't totally damning at this point in the season.  Crazier things have happened.  But there comes a time when we have to admit to ourselves we just don't have it.

We've been talking about that time for a little while now as the concept that the Twins may jut not be that great of a team sinks painfully into our minds.

Today's 3rd inning (which is till going on I believe) is a perfect example.  Bonser isn't pitching very well against a high powr
e offensive team on it's home turf.  We've had two errors in the inning, including one on an inning ending double play ball.  The next hitter hit the ball out of the ball park.  Meanwhile, the Twins have players like Jason Tyner hitting second in the batting order.

I don't care what the record is, I don't care what we did last year.  Last year we had to smell em'.  This year, it's time to sell em'.  There is no question in my mind, looking at these two teams on paper and looking at them on the field, that the Twins are simply not in the same class as teams like the Tigers and Indians.

Now, let's get to 87 wins.  That would require us to play .590 baseball the rest of the way.  That would be a fine accomplishment, a good season, and is a good goal to reach for.
