That's a stomach numbing, couch paralyzing amount of pancakes. I prefer waffffffles, lefse or tykklefse but pancakes are good too!

I try.

So, in conclusion, what was your question again?

I can easily see this team beating the Yanks/Astros in a playoff series, especially if they can hang on to home field.

Not considering any trades, Berrios, Odorizzi, Gibson/Perez are capable of keeping teams in check. This offense can explode for a 4-5 run inning at any time against anyone. As we’ve seen, even when not playing great, it’s nearly impossible to take 2 or 3 in a row from this team.

I’m not saying they will or should. I actually think it’s probably the Yankees’ year. They’re matching us stride for stride without Judge, Stanton, Gregorious, Hicks (for much of the season), Andujar, Betances, Severino....basically their entire team from recent years. They’ll all be back and fresh down the stretch. But, the Twins are now certainly capable of winning multiple series in the playoffs. Add two high quality bullpen arms to go with Rogers and I’d feel pretty good about playing anyone.

YOU ARE NOT PLAYING THIS GAME CORRECTLY!!  THE TWINS BLOW BIG TIME. NO PITCHING AND THE BULL PEN REALLY IS TWO LEVELS BELOW PUTRID. THE TWINS WILL LOSE THE DIVISION BY 12 GAMES.

 

WAKE UP PEOPLE!

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. But a skunkweed will always be a skunkweed and instantly recognizable.

Not that it matters to anyone but me, but the original "Panic" which came during that 11-run loss turned me off to commenting on the Game Thread. I saw how ugly people can be when they expect to win every day. I'll be reading posts on occasion but no longer participating in Game Threads. Best to all, and Go Twins!

I have one of those coworkers we probably all have.Game 1 out of 162 was a must win, or the season was over.I tried to no avail to talk him off the ridiculous ledge.Luckily, the Twins passed the test.Game 3 against Cleveland was a must win because the difference betwen an 8 1/2 and a 10 1/2 game lead is huge (more than 2 games?).Test passed.  

​If you would like, I can check with him when we need to panic more than usual. 

 

This opening game against the freefalling Mariners after an off day does seem like a good time to panic.If they don't come out of the off day ready to put the hurt on, it could be an obvious sign the team is getting lackadaisical and will be in second place by the end of June.

Fifth place. I just know it.

I'm never really fine being in 2nd place, but I wouldn't have expected much more. Really, who would have? I'm fine right now havng a chance.
