Dear Twins,

 

Nice bullpen or whatever.

 

Thanks,

 

Doomtints

 

P.S. Nice infield defense or whatever.

Problem is: Twins not playing well, not firing on all or even very many cylinders, especially in extra innings.

 

And, defense has been poor for a couple of months now, along with relief pitching, and against good teams, the starters don't even grade out well.

 

So, Twins are not playing well.Cleveland is.

 

Still got time to get back in the groove, but this is go time in MLB and the Twins are waiting at the busstop.

 

I agree. The defense has really been the difference, this has been a .500ish team since the defense tanked. It's kinda sad the org isn't talking about it, which makes it seems like they are not addressing it and possibly don't even see it.

Sure, Cleveland has come from 11 1/2 to 3 back. That makes next week's four game series all the more exciting. Our pitching is worrisome. The hitters get runs and the pitchers often give them right back. But that 11 1/2 lead gave the Twins a chance to test out numerous arms in the pen. We know what we have. As for Dyson, we all expect better from him, but he blew one game and almost gave away a second. Tommy Lasorda said even the best teams lose a third of their games and even the worst win a third. It's the other third that determines division winners; we've blown too many late-inning leads. I have hopes that Rogers and Romo, the R boys, can shut down opponents the way Joe Nathan did. If not, we're toast.

The Royals don't seem to know they're supposed to roll over for us like they do for Cleveland.

I’ve noticed a lot of complaining about the complainers. :)

Complaining is part of being a fan for some of us. I’d say 90+ percent of us who are complaining are all in on winning this thing.

Cleveland vs the Royals this year: 10-6

Twins vs the Royals this year: 7-3

The Royals seem to be rolling over just fine for us, relative to Cleveland.

Dyson blamed himself on the first game.He should have been able to close out a team like Miami and he didn't.Because I have DishTV I have not been able to watch so didn't see or hear any comments from him on last nights game.Two games not a great impression but hopefully in a couple of weeks we can calm down.I am starting to get nervous though.I am not sure what to do about Dish TV?Has anyone switched yet? I don't want to switch because I like PrimeTime Anyway and we have lot's of kids movies recorded but I don't want to miss the rest of the season.Any advice?

If you're not quite ready to switch from Dish, but you don't want to miss any games, you can just sign up for a free trial of streaming service that carries Fox Sports North.

 

I see 3 services with FSN that offer free one week trials:

 

Hulu with Live TV

YouTube TV

Fubo TV

 

There's also Sony's Vue service which offers a 5 day trial.

 

I think all of these services also support logging in through the Fox Sports Go site/app, so you don't have to change apps every week -- you can simply log out of Fox Sports Go with one service, and log in with the next.

 

https://www.foxsportsgo.com/

 

Maybe I should start a new topic on this, it seems to be affecting quite a few people!

Hulu did not work at least with the 5.99 or 11.99 per month option. Did not want to sign up for 5 day 49.99 per month option. Using Fox Sports Go and my daughters account login. Thank goodness. I was starting to freak out for sure.

The $5.99/11.99 plans are just for Hulu's video on demand library, similar to Netflix.

The $44.99 Hulu + Live TV plan includes live TV channels like Fox Sports North too. And it should have a 7 day free trial -- maybe you have to provide a credit card, but they shouldn't bill you if you cancel within 7 days.

But yeah, any Fox Sports Go credentials should work. Glad you got it working!
