Man, Roy and Dick can do a song and dance to sell this team.

I know everybody does it, but I wish the Twins' broadcasts would tone it down.

In T-ball, he'd be credited with an inside the park home run!

I think Roy's better at it than Bert, though. More sincerity.

Doesn't Plouffe lead the team in triples (2)?

Lots of empty seats at the Futures game.


Thanks for the link. Pretty surprising even without Buxton or Sano. Makes me wonder how close to a sellout they could get even if there were more high-profile Twins prospects in the game.

No doubt some non-MN pundit will use the sparse attendance to knock Twins fans as casual and not knowledgeable.

I wish that Gardy had pinch hit for Hughes and let the bullpen take over.

After that last one it might be fair to expand that to 'tough week'...

That kind of makes me wonder what the lowest triple season total to lead an MLB team might be.

Reading the comments here and the promo says "sounds like you're done having children".

Brady Anderson led the '98 Orioles with 3, the team as a whole set the MLB record with just 11.

Be interesting to see what kind of PA Zuke puts together.

My guess is they will pitch him inside.

Five run lead, we hardly knew ye.


But a lead is a lead, no matter how small!

Why not double switch here, Cola for Hughes and Deduno for Morales?

Thanks, that's funny because my guess was going to be either 3 or even 2 if the Dead Ball era was as hard on triples as it was homers (it was, briefly, followed by a spike).

But I never would have guessed that a speedy leadoff guy like Brady Anderson, who averaged nearly 10 triples and more than 25 SB's per season in his prime would be that leader at just 34 years of age.

PS Which site did you use to look that up?

Well that was a quick half inning.

Looking forward to seeing many more of those at TF.

Baseball Almanac provided fewest triples hit by team, then just checked those teams individually on B-Ref.


(I made the assumption that Brady's 3 was a safe bet)

Now Cola comes out of the dugout...what happened to my double switch? I guess it is 6 of one and half a dozen of the other as it is turning out. Probably was going to replace Deduno anyway, with his pitches going everywhere.
