magic-number-7.png

 

Good afternoon and welcome back to another exciting game thread! After last nights win I'd prefer this game just go a standard 9 innings and we win by 10 or 12 runs.  I can honestly say I stayed up until the final out was made and very glad I did. Entertaining game to say the least...Magic number now at 7!!!!

 

Tonights game I think goes to the Twins.  The momentum is there and I believe the Twins players can smell a division win just around the corner. If the Detroit Tigers had any pride in themselves and for the great game of baseball they should beat Cleveland tonight making our magic number 5...

 

I wanted to write more but I'm tired after staying up so late...Pardon my brevity (inside joke from last nights game thread). 

 

My "pick the click" tonight is...Mr. Sano

 

Lineups:

 

TWINS:

1. Luis Arraez LF

2. Jorge Polanco SS

3. Nelson Cruz DH

4. Eddie Rosario RF

5. Miguel Sano 3B

6. Jake Cave CF

7. Jonathan Schoop 2B

8. Jason Castro C

9. Willians Astudillo 1B

SP: Jake Odorizzi ® 14-6, 3.60 ERA

 

WHITE SOX:

1. Leury Garcia CF

2. Tim Anderson SS

3. Jose Abreu DH

4. Yoan Moncada 3B

5. Eloy Jimenez LF

6. Zach Collins C

7. Yolmer Sanchez 2B

8. Matt Skole 1B

9. Daniel Palka RF

SP: Ivan Nova ® 10-12, 4.86 ERA

 

Weather: 79 degrees. 4% chance of rain. 8mph winds blowing out! (more bombas???)

By the way, just an idea.  I think starting tonight and through the playoffs and World Series we should name or nominate 1 or 2 "Game Thread Captains" to each game thread. If we're gonna pull this team through we need to start building up the leadership around here. These game thread captains need to manage paranoia, jinxes, bad vibes, etc.  This is a team effort people!

 

I officially nominate anyone but me...Aggies would make an interesting choice though!:)

You only stayed up until the final out was made?Dude, you should have stayed up longer!! After Sano made the final outGonzo got a two run single, Arraez singled, Wade singled and the game ended when Torreyes got hit which brought in the final run. We won!!!!

So since the excellent B squad is in should I assume Gonzales re hurt his side? And I know people here will know, but what time is the game Fri? Tickets say 7:10 but I thought the weeknight games are at 6:40? Let's have lots of Bombas tonight and put another nail in Cleveland's coffin!

A good time for a sweeparooni.

Oh, does anyone else think Jimenez is the real deal and that Moncada has the aura of Eddie Rosario about him i.e. you never know what to expect from him?

Let's hope this is just a rest day for Gonzalez. Team needs him to be healthy for the playoffs. Every win allows for more time off for Kepler and Marwin. Go Twins!

That combo terrifies me. Moncada is already all star level, while Eloy can easily get there. If they can find cheap free agents and develop some pitchers a la Twins, they’ll contend for years to come

Imagine how many games Detroit and Kansas City might lose next year, with three good division opponents. Kind of like Baltimore in most years.

Although the White Sox have a worse record, I feel like there can be an argument that the Orioles, Blue Jays, and Red Sox are equally as bad as the Tigers, Royals, and White Sox.

LaTroy just said Odorizzi was efficient with his pitches.
