Nope, its just the simple truth. If the Twins were in the NL east, NL central or AL East they would be a 4th place team or worse. The white sox have been good this year(because of their pitching, not because of the below average output of pods) and the rest of the division has been weak and in general has had weak schedules.

I don't understand why they keep trotting Joe Mays out there. He's Milton's righty twin. With Baker and Liriano chomping at the bit, why keep Mays in the rotation and forfeit the game during this important time?
Minnie does a terrible job of handling their prospects IMO.
Give me an example of how the Twins don't use their prospects right? Please don't say the handling of Johan as that OBVIOULSY worked out just fine as he's developed decenlty.... ha
Giving up on Bartlett after six weeks infavor of waiver fodder like Jaun Castro, and sending him back down so the could hit .330 in Triple-A.

ha, he's been hurt most of the year. He was overrated due to his cocky attitude. Probably will be something eventually, but near the pitcher we thought we had a couple years back.
Durbin was well thought of because of his velocity, but he has failed to develop a plus second pitch and doesn't change speeds. He'll wind up in someone's bullpen eventually.
