I got up this morning in somewhat of a funk, because the home town 9 played like they were in a funk, with results to match. 

 

 

*Ah, seventies era stuff. Music was cool, clothes, not so much. What? Yes, I wore that stuff. Don't judge!

 

But, this is a new day and a great day to start another winning streak! 

 

 

 

*Supposedly, Mr. Trebek got miffed at this guy continuing to win.

 

And now, I bow out, leaving this one final video:

 

 

*That worked out far better than I thought it would.

 

 

This is where I put in some sort of picture where the five things to think about should be:

 

ovenheatrent

 

 

*When I lived in MN and the regular heat failed, well....so, yes, I can relate.

 

Some random observations from last night:

 

1. Slegers threw a clunker, which is going to happen. However, timing just wasn't good.

2. Kennedy managed to avoid another win.

3. It was cool when Mr. Dozier tied the game.

4. Bullpen did good right up until it didn't.

5. Credit to Mr. Rogers for going 2.1 innings and getting out of a tough spot.

 

Play ball!

I'll try to get some lineups posted in a while. Unless someone beats me to it.

 

Sorry for the limited content. Kind of like the Twins yesterday, just didn't seem to have it today.

 

Also, I tried to do the MN and CA math correctly this time. :)

Wow.Two song references and two home runs.

 

I don't know what you were doing right around 1976.But clearly, you were paying attention!

He is actively keeping Astudillo from getting playing time -- just weird

IMO, not the manager for a team in rebuilding mold......but then, maybe they think they are playoff contenders.

Hope Lynn can go at least 6, maybe 7, today ... The bullpen could use it ... At least Busenitz will be available

The thing that frustrates me the most about Mr. Molitor is that he can do some things well when managing, but other decisions are completely baffling.

I swear FSN's key to the game every single game is 

 

Need a quality start. 

 

No crap. 

 

It's like saying a key to a better chance at winning in football is throwing for more yards or making more threes in a basketball game. 

 

Wish they were a little more in depth.

That's the odd thing.If something like that is going to be chiseled into stone, you'd think that it would be something related to the bats since they disappear so frequently.This team wins when the offense shows up.Many a quality start go wasted when they don't.

I hear this constant refrain about Lynn being from the school of "throw the fastball until they prove they can hit it."

 

That's all well and good, but, opposing hitters are taking the approach "Lynn needs to prove he can get the fastball over before they'll try to hit it."

I think Lynn will contain them, it's a question of the Twins' ability to score, imo....that will decide this game.

 

INSIGHTS!
