LISTEN, THE TWINS LOST BY 11 RUNS. THEY STILL HAVE THE BEST RECORD IN BASEBALL BUT OBVIOUSLY, THINGS ARE FALLING APART. THE BULLPEN IS A MESS, PEREZ IS A FLUKE, AND BUXTON IS HIDING AN INJURY.

Nothing to add. You said everything that needed to be said very well.

FIRST, EVERYBODY CALM DOWN!!! STOP RUNNING AROUND IN YOUR UNDERWEAR, WAVING YOUR ARMS AND SCREAMING, "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE DIE DIE!!"

 

INSTEAD, LEARN TO SCREAM, "IT'S JUST A GAME! BASEBALL'S NOT MY LIFE! I GOTTA STOP DRINKING SO MUCH COFFEE! WINTER IS COMING! TAX DAY IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER! DID I LEAVE THE STOVE ON? WHERE ARE MY SOCKS?? WHY ARE ALL YOU PEOPLE STARING AT ME? STOP IT, STOP IT!! WHY DO I SEE BUGS IN THE CORNER OF MY PERIPHERAL VISION? AM I GETTING PARANOID?? OH GOD, I'M GETTING PARANOID! YOU'RE A SPY, AREN'T YOU? YEAH, YOU DRESS LIKE A COP, BUT YOU'RE A SPY! WHY ARE YOU HANDCUFFING ME? I'M BEING KIDNAPPED BY RUSSIAN SPIES!!!

I knew they were a fluke. Anyone can have the best record in baseball through 2 months. Everybody hits home runs, that doesn't make them special. This is it. They're coming down to earth, and it's going to be messy. Might as well start trading off pieces now to build toward 2020. Maybe next year will be our year guys.

Couldn't agree more, time to move anybody that has value for more minor league prospects! :)

A lot of you really suck at this.

Just sayin’.

The emotional letdown is too much to overcome. I'm spent. I can't muster much more energy than what is required to type this post.

I knew something like last night was going to happen. We should have known it was going to lead to this when we signed Nolasco. It's his fault. And Pelfrey's.

Tired of all you negative Nellie's. I remain positive.I am positive the first two months were all a fluke and the season is finished but there is always next year.Vikings training camp is right around the corner and I think the Wolves start the month after that.

The analytics say not use your IPAD the second time though the comments, I thought everybody knew that?

Perhaps he, like myself, is unfamiliar with Applemetrics. I'm not an Apple user though, so I have an excuse!

LISTEN, THE TWINS LOST BY 11 RUNS. THEY STILL HAVE THE BEST RECORD IN BASEBALL BUT OBVIOUSLY, THINGS ARE FALLING APART. THE BULLPEN IS A MESS, PEREZ IS A FLUKE, AND BUXTON IS HIDING AN INJURY.

This mocking all but ensures the Twins drop the series.

 

Thanks, Jan.

My hot take is let's not delay the inevitable and move Perez back to the bullpen where he belongs.Let's start stretching out Trevor May.
