Booked and noted.  Good Luck Platoon!

1. All bets must be placed before the end of the 2nd inning.All prizes are awarded by me at the end of the night**.- Someone will place a bet in the fourth inning.

 

2. Any and all ties are decided by me. I bet not.

 

3. You can only bet once for each category. Okay. Wait, no. Maybe?

 

Category #1 - Who will be the best hitter tonight for the Twins? "Pick the Click" Adrianza

 

Category #2 - How many strike outs tonight for Gibson? Mr. Gibson will strike out 7 batters. Mr Gibson will not strike out.

 

Category #3 - How many stolen bases for the Twins tonight? 3

 

Category #4 - How many total broken bats tonight for both teams? 7

 

Tie breaker category:Total time of game 3 hours 11 minutes.

This might be the greatest Game Thread ever.  Except when we win the ALDS and WS.  Just saying.

Belligerent behavior is not only allowed but encouraged.  Please PM Chief to settle any and all disputes.Prizes vary and could create a tax issue with the IRS, State and local authorities. Twinssporto is not responsible for any illegal activity you decide to do on your own.Please drink responsibly tonight. I'm so tired of the Twins poor play I want to scream!I also don't like the "Rodney Experience". Why can't we seem to get the offense moving?If anyone in the Twins front office is playing tonight on this Game Thread you are automatically disqualified.You can't play until you field a better product.

 

 

DO NOT READ THE FINE PRINT!!1!

I did ,and a lot here will be out to the "drink responsibly" rule, so free to drink more for us, "can't win" ones.

I’m cautiously optimistic that Petit taking Dozier’s spot is indicative that Molitor is going to start asserting himself with Dozier, re no more batting lead off.

Rule # 1Never bet on a Minnesota team. Known in Vegas as a sucker's bet.

 

Rule # 2Vegas doesn't offer an over/under on the Twins. Just an under.

I'd probably go Kepler, Mauer, Dozier, um, hmmmmm. Ya.

I guarantee there are overs offered every day. Always on Twins runs and bullpen innings pitched.
