I'm impressed by Granite and willing to give him a few more at-bats. 

 

Good discipline at the plate. He's closer to ready than most prospects I've seen arrive... He just needs to see a few more MLB Talent pitches to adjust to.

I think he's a fourth OF, but judging him already is funny, from the crowd that wants Buxton not to be judged yet..

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Hard to say with certainty, it was a generalization on a message board, not a PHD paper.

I was at this game... so when we play Houston, we're 1-0 when I attend and 0-5 when I don't.  Clearly on to something here.

 

Also, was fairly surprised to see a few hundreds Twins fans at Minute Maid. I received many friendly (and some unfriendly) jabs from the Houston crowd as I strutted around in my red Killebrew jersey.

Very heads-up baserunning by Rosario (and/or basecoaching by Smith) on that double. Although, Altuve was pretty slow getting up after that dive - I won't take anything away from him on that, since it might have shaken him up for a little moment, but had he popped to his feet faster he would have given Eddie a little more to think (legitmately or not) about when rounding first.

If you have to travel on the Titanic, at least go first class.
