Game 1 starter goes in Game 4, like all the other Twins World Series :)


In'87 we basically had two starters!

When Sano enters the lineup, he’ll quickly add to the K rate. Astudillo out for awhile will curve it up as well. Sano figures to take at bats away from pretty much everyone with Marwin presumably used as a fill in all over.

 

Just think what could happen if Sano gets his Ks down!

How soon we forget. Les Straker pitched 6 shutout innings in game 3 in St. Louis and left with a 1-0 lead.

A 1-0 pitcher's duel may be boring for some casual baseball fans who just want to watch homeruns... for someone who works many games at Target Field, a 2 hour-15 minute game is wonderful (particularly when the Twins win.)

 

Yeah, scoring runs is fun... but games like this are intense... far more than a typical game.

Yea what was up with that ump? At least he was consistently bad.

I agree 5-5 against the Astro's, Yankee's, and Blue Jays is good, but you got to beat the teams in the East to get respect and start to change the culture if you want to take the next step. Cleveland still has the best Starters in AL and Lindor is back. 

You can't continue to win with only hitting HR. You got to manufacture runs when conditions dictate it. Good teams can do both, besides scoring 5 runs without hitting a HR, puts more pressure on the pitcher and defense. You have to be able to do both. I haven't seen a lot of " Small Ball". I like the winning, but sometimes you got to play the game smart late in the game. That is my point.

I know I just hate all those home runs. NOT!

I never understand how consistently bad becomes OK. Seems like to be consistently bad or wrong is worse than wrong just some of the time. I get the perdictability factor, that one can now try to predict he will be wrong the same way over and over.... but wrong is wrong, and consistently wrong or bad....... I really hate that.

There's certainly one 1-0 game Twins fans remember going on three decades now.

 

Yep! We fondly refer to it as the Gene Larkin story.
