In those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Gimme 5 bees for a quarter you'd say...now, the important thing is I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. You couldn't get white onions, on account of the war...

I don't have any numbers yet, but boy (SSS!!!) do the Twins look like winners. I'm taking the over on my 89 win prediction.

Looks like an MLB record for homers on opening day today. The Twins and Indians combined for a total of 0.

I’m not sure how often all 30 teams opened on the same day before. It was not usually that way back in the day. Usually like half the teams played on opening day and the other half opened the following day.

I think unless there is some unforeseen injury or they lose momentum when the clinch the division in August -- they are on a strong march to 162-0.

I was asked on a different thread if I was more concerned about OBP or OPP. Not sure what OPP is but I think maybe Outs Per Pitch. I just know Cleveland threw92 pitches yesterday and the Twins had a .226 OBP.Still, I don't know how many Cy Young winners we will face this year but 1-0 is a good start.

If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

Not to mention 162 saves!

 

On the negative side, Rosario on pace to strike out 324 times and leave 324 men on base.

A three-way tie for first in the AL Central! This division is not going to be decided until the last 161 games of the season!

Is it too early to say Saturday's game is a must win?

Buxton is still on pace to break Vince Coleman's consecutive steals record.Coleman probably did his all in one season though, instead of three.
