I think the radio announcers for Minnesota said it well:
"It may be time for Joe Girardi to have a closed door heart to heart with this ball club. This is not a very good team right now. You have mental errors, guys standing around with their hands on their hips, and there just isn't any fire out there. "
Sounds like Hank is throwing in the towel as well.
Perhaps more than a big name free agent that can put up good numbers, I'd like to see management go out and find a clubhouse leader to add to this roster. Someone that can inject energy and keep the other "lead by example" type players on their game and emotionally into it. At the end of last season, I was thinking Duncan had a chance to be that guy. Clearly not. Anyone know who's out there that can fit that type of bill for next season?
Giving the effort on display I"m finding it difficult to stay interested. . . .
