Topsy Turvy Game Thread intro:

Detroit. Not too far from where you go South of the Boarder and wind up in Canada. I forget, do we expect them to pay for a wall? They might at that, if it is shown to improve health. They care.

Gardenhire. Is in the other dug out. Maybe i'm a little behind the times... Should i be checking on other fixtures too? Dougie Baseball? Tom Kelly? Where will it all end?

Patience. We got prospects learning their craft. Trains don't stop on a dime. And i've seen some of the pennies they've tried to stop on...

Bunthorne's Bride. (It's the subtitle for Patience) It is a mildly literary reference. It's a a latter 19th century light opera about the aesthetic movement. And fads in general. There are perhaps unexpected aspects of fads and fandoms, eh?

"I didn't anticipate that when i first put this uniform on."

Play ball!

I got a softball double header i am about to rush off to. Should be fun. Is this a bullpen game thread? I guess so. Take care of it for me.

So, if I have followed the ups and downs the last few days correctly, the bench players for today are Grossman, Wilson and Cave.

Meaning that the Twins won’t pinch hit for Adrianza late in the game because the only other infielder is the DH.

If I wanted balls and strikes called by a robot, I would get an Xbox!

Too early to type Twins win?

One of the best opening day rosters in years. Now go get 'em.

Where has Brian been?

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

Got swept in my softball double header. Don't think that means anything regarding the Twins game though.

Oh well.

The Twins lineup looks like a JV lineup the minute any semblance of quality shows up on the mound. They have feasted on the occasional mistake, but the plate approach has been almost universally atrocious. It goes beyond explanation...

This is where the Twins have missed Polanco (and more recently Mauer) and his contact approach.

Sano was totally disinterested in trying to hit a breaking ball.

This just in:

Odorizzi walks too many hitters.

45 pitches. Just out of second inning. Looks like Magill will get to earn his check tonight.

Woot! Bullpen reinforcements on the way! Matt Belisle is sure to turn this team around!

Why does Odorizzi take so many pitches to get through an inning?Seems like it always takes 20+ ....

Absolutely horrible job of calling balls and strikes. No excuse for this kind of inconsistency.
