This guy hits lefties just fine, why do they keep messing around with this absurd platoon arrangement? I'm just gonna say it: Kubel can rake. They need to get him in the #2 slot and watch their offense take off with the trio of Mauer, Morneau, and a resurgent Cuddyer hitting behind him.

Meanwhile, Ron Gardenhire notices(?) that Lew Ford is hitting .182 against lefties this year and decides to continue to help his team today by starting Ford against the lefty Odalis Perez. Ford goes 0/4 to bring his average to an outstanding .216 and his .298 OBP/.302 SLG a bit closer to Kubel's .291 batting average. In his last 10 appearances, Ford is now a very productive 4/22 with 1 RBI. But of course, Ford has 8 SB this year, so that must be the reason.

Keep up the good work, Ron. I hope the Twins decide to get a new manager before they get their new stadium.

The Big Train laid it down pretty well. (sigh) Maybe they're really hoping Ford shows sparks of life so as to make him tradeable, but really, the Twins shouldn't be lazy with this Kubel guy. I hope they're just trying to keep him fresh..

16 out of 18 8-o

I agree, I really hate the late inning Ford sub for Kubel for D reasons too.

I can't complain much right now, this team is unstoppable, to bad that CWS and DET are too.

What's the record of the Central in the last 2 weeks? 6-7 losses in 60 games?
