Excited to see Sano back. Wouldn't be surprised to see him pinch hit for Ehire this afternoon, and then Marwin come in for him. Best news possible on Garver, too. Let's keep it rolling boys!

Career Game Thread Record: 15-4

 

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

That's okay, I keep reading Tommy Lasorda for La Stella for some reason.

 

I was watching this live when it happened  30 years ago, and to this day I still have no idea what I saw...

Wow, Gardy would not field this lineup.  No back up catcher?  He prefers to have two back up catchers on the bench!

 

That and the 2nd basemen is not batting 2nd.

What news? I take it they said it's mild?

Sanó's return will probably have the biggest impact on Marwin Gonzalez, who has been the regular third baseman. (Adrianza probably would have been impacted most had Garver not gone down last night).

 

I still think Gonzalez can get into the lineup ~4 times a week. Maybe he plays 3rd once, 1st once or twice, and gets a start in the outfield once a week. More injuries can of course change this, but if the Twins stay healthy in the near future, I can see that being the plan.

He'll get moved around. His bat is heating up and he's looking more like what we wanted to get. He could give every infielder a spell one day and even a corner OF... No reason why he cannot get in 4-5 days a week to give someone a day off.

Great game plan by Odo. Give the Angels a little bit of hope and then squash their dreams. Let's keep it rollin.

3 years ago today Odor punched Bautista in the face! :) Today Odorizzi’s on the mound! Is this just a coincidence? ;) \m/

Hope so. It looked Extra Spicy on the replay last night.

This is certainly possible while Garver is out but I wonder how hard it will be to fit both Astudillo and Gonzalez into this roster and get proper usage from both of them after Mitch comes back to the team.

That ball had no business going as far as it did based on the location, swing, and apparent ball speed.

 

Then it decided to go 325 feet just for funsies. Baseball is a silly game sometimes.

True, but it's easier going in rather than back. If his first steps were back I think he would've had a better chance at that ball.
