Are we sure Falvine didn't call Tyner, and he turned them down? 

I would prefer Tyner over LaMarre.

 

(I just threw up in my mouth a little bit)

Clenching of some body parts could possibly lead to not clenching at all? :)
TwinsWorld: Did you hear we just updated the Stadium Club?

If I wanted balls and strikes called by a robot, I would get an Xbox!

We should ask Cleveland, politely, if they would be nice and play 5 on 5.

Lew Ford can still hit, can't he?

Realistically, we have a bunch of guys who can't play, and whether it's Alejandro De Aza, Ramon Flores or Ryan LaMarre being called upon to take major league at bats; it's a crap shoot. I think Luke Raley might have been the most ready (since Jaylin Davis was traded), but he's another wounded warrior.

 

We're in a tough spot, but the Twins have been pretty resilient this year. If Schoop is truly swinging a hot bat right now the cleanup spot might not be a bad idea. I'm looking for La Tortuga to pull some bat magic too. If prayers have any influence, we got your back guys.

Ambiguous phrasing. :)

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

Ace I believe Lew Ford is still in game shape from playing on the Dominican National Team. A quick plane ride from Santo Domingo.

I'm curious as to why no one has snapped up Scooter Gennett since SF released him. I mean the Twins don't need him because they have Schoop and Arraez but dang you'd think someone would grab him. He hit .310 last year and OPS'd .847. 23 Hrs, 30 2Bs and 181 hits. You'd think someone would want a shot at that??
