the last thing we need is for hunter to be out for any time. at first it looked bad, but the results were a strained tendon, I guess I don't know how long that needs to heel. at least its not a severe sprain, which would have finished his season.

twins need to pick up some offense, what ever the cost.

I think it will make the Twins make some moves to bring in somebody, hate to lose Hunter like that, I have a feeling he'll be back sooner than later.

The tendon is torn.............not good.

Hey Rubberneck, you still think the Sox will collapse?

I doesnt matter at this point, if the sox collapse or not they'll still win the division. Twins had a good run for a while but the reality of a limited payroll is hitting them. There is no substitute for cash.

1st place AL east

Boston-$123,505,125 (2nd highest MLB)

NY Y 2.5 back-$208,306,817 (highest MLB)

1st place Al cent

Chicago-$75,178,000

(highest payroll in cent)

1st place AL east

LA Angels-$97,725,322 (4th highest MLB)

See a trend here. Money beats good scouting, deal making, being patient with prospects. Any season above .500 is a success for the Twins in my book.

I can tell you first hand how bad that injury can be, I've torn ligaments in my ankle as well, ironically enough. And if his is the tendon, I'd imagine that would be even worse. I've still never healed from it, and rolling my ankle is very easy to do now, it just has no stability. Granted, I didn't have a professional rehab team, but it still sucks for the Twins regardless.

Too bad for the Twins. Hunter had some decent trade value; the Twins could have reloaded like when they dealt Viola. Unfortunately any pitcher they were looking to unload this week has taken the pipe.

I think the Hunter injury shut down any bother of the Twins making a deal...with Hunter out, it doesn't matter if you bring in Soriano or Meuller...so at this point, you don't give up any young players...you just play the year out, and probably look to next year.

the twins would need to get two or three players to help the offense. so as said earlier, its best to forget about this year and do some off season dealing and try next year.

Yep, Twins did not make a trade...can you blame them? Who in their right mind would ever give up a good hitter for pieces of crap like Romero or Lohse.

Sled,

"Looking forward to next year"???

You better hope the Twins don't sink below the Kitties or you know who will have the last laugh -no matter what excuses we use (injuries, money, scouting, or players who are real POS).

It sounded like most of the trade talks, other teams wanted Baker, Liriano, or Durbin in return. I agree with the decision not to trade any of 'em. Lohse and Mays by themselves weren't gonna get anyone in return...

Yeah...you have to start looking to next year - especially with Hunter out for probably the rest of this year. Santana, Radke, Silva...and then Baker, Liriano and Durbin fighting for the last two rotation spots. Spend a few bucks and bring in a third baseman, assume Bartlett can play SS next year, and then let Castro and Punto fight it out for 2nd base.
