What is it with the Twins just getting destroyed on day games during the week?

I really wish that guys would do that more often.

Showing Cruz' stats like that and not including his OPS is a travesty. His OPS has to be close to 2.000 against the Sox.

Doesn’t Skole seem like a player that should be on Minnesota, not Chicago?

Yeah, this pitching staff is fine.

very little of that was on Odo.

How does Polanco miss the bag on a force? Abreu hits a weak 22 hopper through the SS position. A broken bat humpback liner for an RBI.

Someone tell the rally squirrel to start stretching and warming up.

 

May need him to make an appearance in a couple of innings.

Going into today, Cruz' OPS against the White Sox is 1.897.

Double play. Friend of the pitcher.

Hope the other friend is about today.

Run support.

Is that what happened? Polanco missed the effing bag? I was outside with a contractor in the top of the first and wondered how the hell a fielder's choice resulted in no outs.

 

Crikey, Jorge, pull it together.

So many rally animals, so little time. Varmint size seems to dominate.

Rally Bear got surly at some balls and strikes calls, had to be helicoptered to a national park.

Rally Elk just wouldn't stand still, too many repairs to the safety netting.

Rally Trout flopped around for almost two minutes, pretty good for a fish. Tasted good, too, with beer batter.

Rally Horse looked good for a while, but then dropped a huge pile of...memorabilia on the third base line.

Rally Snake disappeared somewhere under the dugout bench. Was he venomous? I forget.

Couldn't find a jersey big enough for Rally Rhino, probably for the best. 

Rally Viking looked promising, but he smelled funny...like cheese or something.

Rally Anvil and Rally Windmill were impractical. 

Rally Banjo sounded good, but too happy for Twins fans. 

Rally Mobile Phone seemed almost ideal, but never paid attention to the game.

 

I guess for now the Rally mantle will go to whatever odd critter sneaks into the game without buying a ticket. May it scamper with inspiring enthusiasm!

Ditto. I saw the "reached on a FC" on Gameday and just assumed the Twins got the lead runner.

How is missing the bag not an error?

ground ball up the middle, Schoop makes a nice backhand and flip. Polanco's foot came down 3 inches short of second base bag.

Sounds like it was just changed to an error.

 

That's got to be an error in that context.
