Running a bit late here, as I didn't realize the start time was moved up a bit. Odd start time, but, this has been an odd season.

 

This season has had more ups and downs than "Wild Thing" of Valley Fair fame!

 

 

*No, I'm not about to bring Mitch Williams into the discussion! Oh, wait...

 

But, and we're carrying over a theme here, it has been a magical season for the Twins faithful this year.

 

 

*Yes, I'm reaching. Content is content! Even if it's youtube video!

 

 

*Internet 101...cat videos, because, well, cat videos.

 

Now, for some thoughts:

 

1. No matter how you look at it, Cleveland still struggled to win the last game against the Twins and the Twins were fielding close to Quad A squad.

2. The Twins need to take care of business against the Nationals because there's no way Cleveland does anything but put the hurt on the Angels.

3. Cruz is back in the lineup. 

4.Arraez, unfortunately, is in the leadoff spot. Not, not unfortunately because he's incapable of leading off. Rather, it's unfortunate because it means Max is out of the lineup.

 

 
I apologize for the lateness of this thread, life has sort of caught up with me recently.
 
With that, 
 
5. Play ball!

He's gotta step if he's pitching.

That's why it is called a mound.

I didn't notice that, yes, bummer.

 

That aside, looks like the Nats are fielding some players that are getting long in the tooth.

LaMonte Wade gets a hit (my bold prediction... though not so bold as to say it happens today... merely to strongly imply it)

The Twins' home run record won't be standing for long. Yankees only 5 behind. 2 less games for them, but they play 6 games against the Tigers and Jays over the next 6 games, while we're playing the Nationals and Indians. And many of our thumpers are hurt. This time next week they'll likely be trailing the Bronx Bombers...

Does this matter? The only thing that matters is winning baseball games. Twins need to focus on the game at hand and not worry about silly records. 

 

Also, the Yankees just won't let the Twins have nice things, lol

I would’ve rather given someone else at triple a a shot, like Zander Wiel. Out of all the injuries the team has had, not many have affected the infield. Don’t see the need at all

The start time in the title is wrong, Blake.
He measured the achievements of others by what they had accomplished, asking of them that they measure him by what he envisaged or planned.

I think the doctors know what they're doing, they don't just repair labrums for nothing.

 

Marwin- Cave-anyone heard anything, might we see them again or not ??,Cron - honestly he dosent matter in the long run,, And now Sano ? Keplar they say shows no Damage on a mri also, Bizarre

Gonzalez had an abdominal injury that was going to take some time to heal. Sano's back is injured, which is why we haven't seen him for a couple days. Also, I imagine Kepler is having pain in the shoulder or they wouldn't have done the MRI.

 

The injuries are just ridiculous, but what can you do? I don't think forcing them to play through injuries is going to help in the long run, especially not if we want to win any playoff games.
