At the prompting of an earlier post, I went over to Don Mossi's Fbook page just for the heck of it.

He passed away quite recently. Here's a memorial post:

I think it would be a gas if Joe's Animal Hospital received a handful of donations from some random Twins fans on some random day, just because of some random chat.

Good for the heart.

Yeah, he's hurt. Just like Kepler, Gonzalez, and Cron.

 

Twins resting these guys because they're a bit sore and acting like they've got a 12-game lead.

 

Memo to Rocco and the Twins FO: now's the time to use the best players you have.

Are they really the best guys if you're sending them to the plate when they're injured?

 

I don't get why they refused to pinch hit Garver, but I understand if they don't want Sano swinging away when his back is hurting him.

If we lose tonight, it's a big one! Better come up with 5 runs in the bottom of the ninth somehow.

We need to win tomorrow too! And we need to win two of three in Cleveland!

Wade needs to get a hit now and then to stay above the "Palka Line."

There are going to be six 90 win teams in the AL in all probability. Actually, probably six with at least 93 wins. One of them isn’t going to make the playoffs at all and another one is going to be one and done. There is still no reason why one of those two teams can’t be the Twins.

This season is starting to head into a very dark place. Better find a way to finish Twins or this season will become infamous.

I beg of you. Please relay this to the Twins bench and pronto!

Garver's usage all year has baffled me.

The Nats were recently down 10-4 in the bottom of the ninth and won 11-10. Would be nice for the Twins to pull one of those.

Just need to get key guys healthy. If that happens things may look better pretty quickly.

Ha, their announcers are trepidating too.

Well, the Angels are now in a must win situation. Desperately need them to bail us out tonight.

Well, crud.

 

And, of course, as soon as I said something, Dick mentioned that Sano is having back problems.

FYI - We've been aware of this for a good 3-4 days now.

Cron could of - didnt like him hitting there, -This might be a 3 game lead friday night against Clevinger, Gonna be intresting

Try 2.5. We'll be lucky to get past Sunday up 2.5. The Angels playing like the Tigers didn't do us any favors.
