I can't help but feel this is a team on the brink of imploding. Reed's unhappy, as are a lot of others. If they get swept by the Angels we could be in a position to put the bullet in the head when they show up at the Cell next week. That would be sweet.

The Twins will miss his glove over at first. Whoever replaces him may not be able to dig low throws from Christian "Satan beard" Guzman. As much as I hate Mientkiewicz, he plays a damn good first base.

He truly is an idiot!

Dan McNeil can blow him till the cows come home; he's boring useless and addlebrained!

I happen to agree here.....forcing the twins to get better isnt that great....and that stuff about D at first....wooow wee! Where does first base defense rank in the overall scheme of baseball things? 7,004 or 7,005? Whereas hitting is somewhere in that top 10.....Same crap I used to hear from Cubs fans in the 1990s when Grace would hit .300 and play "great" D so thus he was at least as good if not better than Thomas...blah blah

Hey, don't bother looking at this years stats. Just remember the first half of 2002. I'm sure that Mientkiewicz hasn't been any better than that.

This year he's hitting 0.300/0.390/0.457, and that ain't crap. I know he doesn't mash like Thomas/Giambi/Thome, but it's not like he's hitting like he did last year. Add the defense, the mouth, the leadership and the lucky spot, he's a 5 tool player ! Hey fine, hate him if he's not on your team, but he's not a sinkhole like you might think he is.

Morneau might be special. Every minor league expert says he is, but he needs to get broken in. Similar to what Crede went through the first half of this year. Screw it, this gives LeCroy at bats, and he can MASH!

Those arent great numbers either....true he is up, but where else did he have to go? Still hes lucky to be middle of the pack in terms of hitting for his position, and I dont think 1B D makes up for all that much...this isnt SS we are talking....I dont think a great 1B saves that many runs over an average 1B....

And you get two skills for mouth and leadership? Geez....If he can walk and chew gum at the same time does that make him a 7 tool player?
