Kelly,
Why in the world is Cuddyer still batting ahead of Delmon? We should be rewarding Delmon, and scaring Cuddyer to wake up by demoting him in the batting order. Both are right-handed batters and one is obviously better than the other right now.

Yes Delmon has been hitting pretty good lately, but why does no one mention the fact that he stinks in the outfield. I have seen him blow so many easy plays in left field, it is sickening. In fact he blew 3 plays in the 7/7/10 game against the Blue Jays and pretty much lost the game for the Twins. This guy does not deserve to be on the All Star team, plain and simple.
