About anything - there could be a story about a collie saving a boy from a well - followed by a bunch of negative comments, half of them somehow working a gripe about the Vikings and Twins in there even though it was not a sports story.

I blame Childress for that miracle in that well :)

And not even 4 hours long!!

What a ripoff. I remember when we were getting 2 games' worth of baseball once a week, and nary a doubleheader in sight!

Given the first three innings, that’s nothing short of amazing.

Newspaper comments sections are their own special kind of hell.

 

It speaks volumes of the the older generations who seem to reside on newspaper websites.

You young whippersnapper, I've got socks older than you, hell some of the holes in my socks are older than you, and you're probably right.

Second only to the Strib comments section.

Um ... I wouldn't necessarily say they were second ...

Great game and great win tonight by the Twins! I like that the Twins played with a lot of confidence and they did not appear to be afraid of the Yankees (if it was ever a real thing).

 

One interesting thing I noticed is that the Mitch Garver home run off of CC Sabathia in the 4th inning that hit the top of the left field wall, then bounced over, only had an exit velocity of 89.0 mph (the pitch was 91.9 mph). The launch angle was 31 degrees.

 

When Mitch Garver hit that game ending double play a couple of days ago against Oakland, the exit velocity was 89.3 mph. I knew that he hit the ball hard enough for a base hit or sac fly if the launch angle was higher, but I didn't realize until now that it was hard enough for a home run if his launch angle was 31 degrees and he hit it a bit closer to the third base foul line.
