May I be excused now? It's almost dinner time here in Maine.


Yes... But get back here before the street lights come on.

A random fan outside Gate 34. Or maybe not so random.

Speaking of which, if the Twins make it to the WS I wonder if Cruz would be opposed to getting reps in the outfield

"What has made the Twins and the Braves so good this year - starting pitching"

I think the offense might beg to differ.

Aaron Gleeman tweeted about Garver only starting 28 of 54 games since returning from the IL in early June. I don't know why he's not getting the starts at 1B over Adrianza...

 

one of the best hitters in the game this year. I don't get it at all.

 

I'll say it again, if they don't need Sano to move their, then Garver should. He would be leading all of MLB in first base WAR.......At a minimum, he should be catching 60% of the games, not half.

It's been a fun year so far, GO Twins.

Eddie should have taken that question. "Umm...well....bombas."

Well today it probably has to do with getting as many LHB in the lineup as possible. Soroka has a rather severe split.

 

Garver is hitting better than almost anyone in baseball this year....who would you trust more to get a big hit, no matter the pitcher? Also, what about the other games he hasn't played? 

It's been a fun year so far, GO Twins.

I was only speaking to today. I mentioned last week that I was surprised Garver wasn’t playing first some with Cron out.

The game sounds so much more professional when Jim Kaat is on the call.

Speaking of broadcasters, are we getting Morneau back for more games this season?

It hasn't been pretty, but Odo didn't allow any hard contact his first time through the order.
