Okay...so I've taken a little hiatus, (some may call it writer's cramp, I call it summer vacation). But now I'm back and let's see...what have our beloved Twins done in the past month?
Well, last time I checked in, the Twinkies were in last place with a horrid 30-42 but managed to only be 7.5 GB.
Liriano was still on the team but I was predicting that either he or D. Span would be gone by the trade deadline.
Franchise player Joe Mauer was underachieving at best, Joe Capps just went on the DL and Willingham and Plouffe were tearing the cover off the ball with 15 HR's apiece.
My how things change in one month...or have they?
As of today, the Minnesota Twins are 49-62, 11.5 GB, but are no longer in last place as the KC Royals (47-63) have sucked worse. Liriano was shipped off to the White Sox, Joe Mauer has actually started hitting the ball well (.316), Plouffe has been on the 15 day DL with an injured thumb which sparked the call up and then...
