Twins Finally Get Healthy; It’s Too Late

The Twins got 2nd baseman Alexi Casilla and first baseman Justin Morneau back Friday night but it appears to be too late. The Twins are 9 1/2 games back of Detroit, 13 games under 500 and need to catch 3 teams in the standings. If Morneau and Casilla were back when the Twins are just 5 games back in the standings things would be different but there not.

Can The Twins Keep This Going?

The Twins have won 7 straight games and are doing it with mostly a make-shift lineup. Twins fans would love to see this continue but without proven major leaguers it seems unlikely. If the Twins get players like Morneau, Thome, Kubel and Span back they should be fine. Alexi Casilla's hot streak continues but past history tell us that will end.
