Berrios has got this. One run is plenty. May as well be 10. He's dealin' now.

When do you guys think Brent Rooker is going to get his chance? Been crushing AAA lately.

Really like Arraez. He may end up being a key piece in a trade moving forward.

I'd guess September on Rooker! I hope we keep Arraez!!! :) \m/

Assuming the W, this is just the kind of game that was needed.They have been paying the price for the 17 inning win with no off day to regroup and starters struggling.

Well it looks like yesterday may have been a blip on the radar and the offense is still in a slump

BTW, with Garver and Schoop being a bit gimpy that leaves us with only Castro on the bench. It's lucky that we have Astudillo on the roster.

What can you say about Berrios? I am so glad to have him as a Twin, and I would love to see him stay in Minnesota long term.

 

I hope he gets the win in game four to close out the world series.

I could live with that, I guess, but I much prefer a 7 game WS.

Make this guy pitch. His control has caused him trouble. Some of these approaches today have just been awful.

CJ Cron has as many RBI through yesterday's game as Mauer had for the entire 2018 season.

 

There you go again, picking on Mauer.

 

I'm surprised you didn't mention that, with more than half the season yet to go, 8 players already have more home runs this season than Mauer had in his best full season out 9 after his 2009 MVP year. Or that 11 players already have more bombas than the number he averaged over those last 9 seasons

 

Or that 9 guys have a higher OPS than he averaged. Or that 5 guys have OPS numbers higher than his best over those 9 seasons.

It's hard to believe KC is one of the AL's worst teams. Twins make them look so much better than they are.

I thought I'd stick to what I consider a valid comparison...the guy that took his place on the field. With RBI, a measure of production I consider incredibly important to winning.
