For all the crap Rogers is getting, he looked pretty good out there. Now give him a rest!


If there's a save opportunity tomorrow, Romo will likely get the chance to close it.

We only had one Boston Market in my area, back when it was Boston chicken. I can’t believe it’s not only still around, but has almost 500 locations. Wtf

The Twins got a win at Boston where half of the game was pitched by guys who spent the majority of the season in the minors. They faced a former Cy Young winner who had held them scoreless for seven innings the only time they faced him this year. And they gained a game on Cleveland who was facing one of the weak sisters of the AL Central at Cleveland. I'll take it.

There's at least one in Indianapolis that I know of. Went there earlier this year, but didn't have any chicken. Nothing special.

1. Dobnak could be in the majors a long time if he gets a little better control.
2. I’m going to miss Kaat (who should be in Cooperstown) and Bert Blyleven in the booth when they inevitably retire. Morneau should be the replacement, NOT Smalley.
3. Everybody pitched well for the most part, Even May’s pitch was incredibly lucky to get out.
4. 6.5 games up! Twins win!

Crazy...seems they are like 40-5 against the central dregs

 

Seems that way because of KC and Detroit, but the White Sox actually lead the season series with the Indians 8 games to 6.

The weak AL Central opposition has an effect. Look at the full standings on the Twins' site. The record against teams >.500. The Twins and Cleveland have impressive records overall, but both are MUCH worse than New York, Houston, etc. in record against winning teams. Methinks this will haunt us in the post-season.

It's great to get out of the cellar ... as long as you bring something with you.

Nevertheless, if we can win the division this year and hopefully win 100 games, this season would be a huge stepping stone to an eventual world championship-whether it be this year or next.

If I follow your logic, I think you are totally for the rotoump.

I don't. You play who you have scheduled. This team is good enough to hang with NY and Houston. Of that I have no doubt.

I would say they are both slightly better teams which over a full season means a couple games ahead of us in the standings.If they are both MUCH better against winning teams then they must both be MUCH worse against losing teams. Not sure what that means. Yankees have by far their best record against the teams in their own division. They have the worst record against the AL Central.San Diego and Milwaukee have better records against winning teams than they do against losing teams. We are 7-9 against division leaders. Yankees are 7-6 and the Astros are 9-8. We will be underdogs if we make the playoffs. So what.Its more fun when underdogs win.
