*Make of my selection what you will. :)

 

Today is home project day at Che Blake:

 

 

*Tim "The Tool Man" for your home improvement tips. Make of this selection what you will.

 

 Swear, there's a theme in some where. So far, we have storms, destruction and improvement. Whatever could be the point of this exercise?

 

 

*Yep, you guessed it, "Make of this what you will."

Some observations from last night:

 

1. Never mind, that particular trip down memory lane is a bit too painful.

2. Good on the Twins for taking the lead.

3. Someone needs to go all Tonya Harding on Perez. Just kidding, great player, darn it.

4. Berrios went 6 and only gave up two.

5. Bad on the Twins for giving up the lead.

 

Play Ball! 

 

Pitching:

 

Twins:

 

Chase De Jong

 

Royals:

 

Ian Kennedy

I'll try to get the lineups up in time. If not, hopefully, someone will pick up the slack.

 

Thanks in advance!

And with their win this afternoon, Cleveland has clinched the AL Central and the Twins have officially, and mathematically, been eliminated from postseason contention.

If they win the rest of the games they finish 82-80 so there is that.

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

Or to paraphrase the coroner in the Wizard of Oz, "As Coroner I must aver, I thoroughly examined them and they're not only merely dead, they're really most sincerely dead."

Well, if you wanted emotion from Molitor, there's some. Plus just some more embarrassing baseball from this club, which unfortunately isn't surprising at this point.

The Royals are playing smarter baseball than the Twins...going back to the first inning where both teams led off with doubles. Mauer was stranded because Forsythe and Rosario did not move him over vs. Merifield, who was moved along by the secondand third hitters, both of who grounded out to the right side, thereby scoring Merifield.I guess Forsythe just read my post. Thank you very much.

Maybe this has made the Twins nervous, resulting in embarrassing plays by the Twins.

Royals and ChiSox have had decent second halves this year with young teams.

Without some big changes the Twins will be lucky to beat out the Tigers for fourth next year.

Routine double play ball yo third, no Twin bothers to cover second. Only one out recorded, pronging inning. Gordon two RBI double follows.

I can’t stand watching a Molitor managed team any more. Send him home with a pink slip in the morning, and start the process of finding a manager tomorrow.

A manager gets the level of play he allows.

The Twins are about to drop to 8-10 against the Royals in 2019. The Royals are about to improve to 52-96 overall.

 

In other words, the Royals are sh*t, and they are most certainly worse right now than they were on March 28.

 

Interesting to note, however:

-vs KC at Target Field: 7-2

-vs KC at Kauffman Stadium: 1-8

 

Same rosters. Same game. Same rules. Your guesses are as good as mine.

 

The true reality: I should probably pay attention to my STAT homework instead of trying to figure out why the Twins can't beat the Omaha Storm Chasers (did I say that out loud?)

Astudillo forgets how many outs there are, to top off the night.

What an embarrassing organization.

Late in a lost season and Molitor gets tossed? Really? So, yeah, embarrassing organization.
