Good morning Twins fans and welcome back to another nerve-racking, nail biting game thread! Just to be clear, I looked up the word "nerve-racking" and the way I spelled it is the traditional way although nerve-wracking is acceptable now too. Note to Mods: It would be nice if TD could offer some editorial assistance with our intro's. I know TD only pays me $1,200 for each game thread intro but a little help would be nice for the paltry sum we get compensated for the effort...Just sayin'.

 

Speaking of money, I have to fly to Las Vegas in a few hours for a work event. I do plan on laying some cash down for the Twins to win the whole thing this year. I just looked up the odds and the Twins are about 14/1 odds of winning the World Series. I think that translates to almost a 6% chance of winning the whole thing. I'll actually take those odds. After the last decade in purgatory I'm an excited fan. Another win today and we're back to a 2 game lead!

 

I'd like to write more but need to head to the airport shortly and stop at an ATM machine. When I walk off that plane and pull up my MLB app I fully expect to see another win for our Twins. I'll then be making a bee line directly to the sport book at the hotel/casino. Get ready Twins fans! I'm betting this is our year!

 

Go Twins!!

Watch it. You could easily be replaced by a game-threader from Rochester who gets paid half that and provides his own grammar/spell checker.

We laugh at gypsies, fortune tellers, and horoscopes, yet we trust baseball prospect lists.

If Berrios is the team ace, the Twins need him to come up big in this game, in a big way.

I mentioned this in another thread—the Twins were 100-1 to win the series in the off-season, which dropped to about 75-1 before the season started.

And dropped to 50-1 the week before the season started because that's what I got them at on my offshore site.

It would be nice if TD could offer some editorial assistance with our intro's.

With your intro’s... what? :)
What does your intro possess that you request assistance with?

The Twins are making another Indians pitcher look like Cy Young. Every guy the Tribe throws out there handcuffs us.
