Well the Twins have started already -- Liriano, Barlett, Kubel etc.. and have made phenomenal strides in the past month. Were it not for the Tigers and White Sox playing out of their minds, they might even be in the race.
The Angels are apparently going to wait a month or so longer before they pounce. Wonder if there will be anything left for them to pounce on?
Never seen a Minor League-rich organization so slavishly committed to obviously washed up vets.
Loyalties to the Kingfish, Erstad on one leg, adam kennedy, underperforming Jeff Weaver and at some point Garett Anderson will be close to the living dead. It's over for these guys OVER. They need to trim the fat.
The Twins with the same problem at least finally got the idea, but waiting for Rondell White, Tony Batista, Lohse and Ruben Sierra is going to cost them dearly. Anyone in the rational world think the groups of washed up has beens were going to lead any team to a play off spot. You can slip in one or two guys, maybe in a platoon....but this is an epidemic.
Now if someone can please explain why Doug Mientkwicz is batting 3rd for the Royals ????????? and Huber isnt up, or Teahen isnt in there or Dejesus. They are just as terrible
