Twin's Baseball is about to break out.


If you meant not get a hit with the bases loaded, you were correct.

Dressed in black, tossin' back a shot of rye.

Which of our sure to be stars prospects would you trade for Tulo?

If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

Meh. Just throw in Duensing and it'll work itself out.

After Duensing and Burton I mean. If we only still had Butera to throw in.

That's why Tulowitzki's among the best in the game. Oh, and that home run too. With due apologies to Escobar, I wish he was on our team.


Esco's parents might too before the series is over.

Gagne's range was maligned by scouts initially. Eventually greater acknowledgement of the effect of artificial turf and a bit of Bronze Age defensive metrics pushed back on that, and he finished his career with a reputation as an unflashy major plus defender.

But everyone could see early on that Gagne had a strong, accurate arm and was excellent at converting balls he got to into outs. Tulo's defense is like Gagne with a minor in leaping throws.

CDC alerted, and vaccine production is ramping up as we speak.


I think quarantine is the only answer...

Too many strands...

Colorado has a couple of Home Runs tonight. I am jealous. I want the Twins to be a home run hitting club. The attached image is my presentation to make that happen next season and you do not have to tare down walls to do it - just put up the plastic orange fencing they use to convert recreational baseball fields to softball fields. Magenta (pink) equals new outfield wall.

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

Not Buxton- he's going to be better than Tulo!

Orange temp fencing is gauche. How many bolts of fabric would it take to curtain it tastefully?

Can we watch from the fenced off portion? Perhaps serve tea and scones?

Oh well. Comebacks are always long shots...

Thanks all!

Last evenin' game 'til after the all star.

I don't think it will help the twins much, but i just remembered: paper covers rock.
