The Rhino and Compass:
The Twins have now lost 9 games in a row. They are terrible. There is only one solution. Burn it down.
Everyone on the staff, fire them. All of them. Terry Ryan Ron Gardenhire, Joe Vavra, the guy who burns hot dogs by Section 129 on a daily damn basis, TC Bear. Everyone.
Trade everyone. Josh Willingham. Joe Mauer. Oswaldo Arcia. Trade them. Trade them all.
Then set fire to Target Field and roast Andy MacPhail in effigy over the smoldering embers.
Run the Pohlads out of town.
Or, you know, be patient and realize that there is a plan, and 2013 is an inconvenient speed bump. The Twins are now at the record they probably were expected to be at by this point. They have young pitchers that will take a couple of years to make it to the big leagues. Oswaldo Arcia is the first of a wave of talented prospects that will repopulate the offense. This season means nothing.

Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire has been ejected from Saturday's game at Detroit while arguing a call at second base.
The Twins had men on first and second with nobody out in the third inning when Justin Morneau hit a grounder to first baseman Prince Fielder. He threw to second to start a 3-6-1 double play, which the Tigers turned - but Joe Mauer, who had advanced to...
The Minnesota Twins recalled right-handed starter Samuel Deduno on Friday and will get the start Friday against the Detroit Tigers. To make room on the active roster, the Twins have decided to option outfielder Oswaldo Arcia to their Triple-A Rochester minor league affiliate. Deduno has been solid, but nothing spectacular in the minors this year so don’t expect him to set anything...
The people are restless. The Twins started the season well but after a 10 game losing streak, the good vibes are gone. Demands to fire Ron Gardenhire, Rick Anderson and the rest of the pitching staff echo through the streets of the Twin Cities. While you’re at it, those anonymous voices say, get rid of Terry Ryan too!
Now, I am fully in support of changing up the coaching staff...
The following numbers equal how long Minnesota's starting pitchers have lasted the past four games: 4 13, 4 13, 4, 2.
The last one should be taken with a grain of salt, as right-hander Mike Pelfrey went just two innings in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Atlanta Braves. The game was halted for over an hour thanks to a rain delay and a power failure with the lights.
