Good afternoon and welcome to more Twins Daily Game Thread action! I had a whole different introduction planned for tonight but guess what? My plans changed. They changed for the better...my vendor came in from out of town and invited me to play golf today.  Teeing off in 1 hour! Can't say I play golf very well but I like the free drinks that will come with it today!  

 

It's 90+ degrees in Minneapolis today so I'll probably drop a few pounds too. Seems like a win, win proposition to me.  Now a win, win, win proposition would be the Twins putting (no golf pun intended) a thumping on the Indians tonight.

 

Tonights Lineups:

 

Twins:

1. Max Kepler (RF)

2. Jorge Polanco (SS)

3. Nelson Cruz (DH)

4. Eddie Rosario (LF)

5. M. Gonzalez (3B)

6.Luis Arraez (2B)

7. Miguel Sano (1B)

8. Lamonte Wade (CF)

9. Alex Avila ©

SP Jose Berrios

 

Indians:

1. C. Hernandez (2B)

2. Jose Ramirez (3B)

3. F. Lindor (SS)

4. C. Santana (1B)

5. F. Reyes (DH)

6. Tyler Naquin (RF)

7. Greg Allen (LF)

8. R. Perez ©

9. D. DeShields (CF)

SP Mike Clevinger

On a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

I’m wondering if this may be the final day for baseball for a while, since the NBA has started to have teams boycott due to BLM.....

I'm not sure the MLBPA will have the same consensus sentiments that the NBPA does.Whether they should or not is a different question.

I don't see other teams doing so, however, If MLB was in a bubble, maybe.

Enough of this cancel culture. We don't know enough about the situation to rush to a judgement. Sure it looks bad from far away but lets wait for the details. No need to cancel games.

 

Play ball!

I don’t think that’s your (or my) call.

Bye, Eddie. See you in a different uniform as soon as possible. Bone-headed plays mount, sprinkled with outfield assists and the occasional big fly from a pitch over your head.

3 hits and a walk in an inning and they only send five guys to the plate and only one run.

Indians and Twins share a base running coach?

Maybe we could trade him for Hernandez

Unfortunately, I don't think anybody is ready to play LF in our minor league system. Or is somebody ready, or nearly? For next year or the year after.

Looks like we're getting shaky Berrios today... we're going to need more offense [than usual] to win this one.
