Pack it in. It's done. Stop hoping and be real here people. It was pretty much over already, but with Victor Martinez playing Jamie Quirk and Joe Nathan playing Ron Davis, that seals the deal.
The Twins are now down 2.5 with 11 left to play. Having pissed away every opportunity to win this division, it's finally over. Excellent job going 8-11 against the easiest stretch in the schedule ever. And what a waste of a year, mainly thanks to the god awful bullpen and the inability of management to acquire a good set up man at the trade deadline, when they knew damn well the bullpen was a liability and knew they were in a pennant race, not a rebuilding year. The Twins were fourth in run differential in the AL, and thanks to the bullpen were unable to make the playoffs, wasting what might be career years from Buscher, Casilla, and Span - though I hope not.
I hate this team.
