Gibson has huge pressure on his shoulder because he knows our offense can't score any runs.

Hey look so did I. And I didn't notice it until your post caused me to look at my last post. It's just a number, no more significant than 1,999 or 2,001.

So when they get thrown out we can read about how stupid Rocco is for wasting outs on the base paths?

So when hitters hit DPs again and again we can read about how stupid Rocco is for wasting opportunities to manufacture runs.

 

It is easy to dream on hitting HR every ABs, but that's not the reality.

I think the Twins need to take notes from the A's on how to play defense

We have a pathetic 11 SB outside of Buxton... I don't know if we have anyone who can reliably steal bases outside of him, as it isn't worth getting runners caught stealing IMO. 
 
Oh, and also outside of Buxton we have 12 CS. That's not even a 50% steal clip!

On a similar note, the Yankees just traded for Terrance Gore.

Hopefully Gore doesn’t report to the team until after the Twins-Yankees series next week!

It was the reality for two months. :)

But yeah, Twins may or may not return to that level of offense.

Saw Gibby's wife at the game. VERY ballooned up. Any idea when she is due? Just trying to figure out when he is going to miss his start for his child being born.

well you are either 1,999 or 2,001 years old — can’t be both :)

I can be if you add them together.

A music video I was in might be in one of those vaults.

I haven’t has time to tune in a lot lately. Are pitchers just going mostly breaking balls to our hitters these last 3-4 weeks? I know we’re a solid fastball hitting team but sone thing is not clicking.
