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

INSIGHTS!


Wait... Do you work for FSN tasked with creating keys to the game?

I remain hopeful on Buxton and Sano.....but I'd not bet the franchise on them.

Perez may play for the opposing team, but, as a player, I really like him.

 

But, darn him!

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

 

 

They can hit it

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.


FSN KEYS to the game:

Twins hitters need to make contact

Score more runs than the Royals before 27 outs are recorded.

Have to admit, it's pretty funny to see the "Keys to the Game" destroyed in the first inning.

Not sure if all 3 of those runs are unearned...but they should be.

Mind your own biscuits and life will be gravy.

Fantastic work as usual, Blake. Much appreciated!

You're more than welcome.

 

Though, I still don't know how RB did it.

 

Though, by the end of the season, I may be in the same boat as RB!

If you are going to swing and miss, at least do so hard enough to create a breeze. It’s a tad warm.
