Cleveland losing is just the cherry on top :)


I don’t take any pleasure from bad things happening to other teams . . . other than teams in our division, the Yankees and the Red Sox.

Eric Sogard is listed at 5'10", but I am wondering if that isn't about 4 inches generous?


There’s no way he’s 6’2”.

Castro day-to-day on the HBP. Thankfully all three games are night games, so Garver can catch the next two if needed. Astudillo should be back soon as well.

Career Game Thread Record: 10-3

 

Safe to say I am the key to the Twins' success

2. Holy cow that's a lot to digest in a game thread.

 

And there's really only one thing we like to digest in a game thread...

Who draws the short straw and has to be emergency catcher? Ehire?

Twins WIN!!!!

 

What a game all around. Martin Perez looks like the best signing of any team this off-season, and this lineup is really good. This is just a really fun team to watch right now between the long balls, not giving away at bats, not striking out, and our pitching being good.

 

Have a good night, y'all.

Yes, and I've been waiting on royalty checks for ages.


If someone checked... which royalty would they find you to be?

What's the lowest form of royalty?

 

 

It's that one.

Perez becoming the G.O.A.T.

 

Other than that, not much.

If a lot of the Perez improvement is coaching, the FO and coaches deserve a raise.

 

See my upcoming post over in the Perez topic.
