Screw it. Plunk them both. Bring in Alcala and let loose at the shoulders. Bring some tenacity. Where's the guy from the Dodgers when you need him. Dude wasn't even on the team.

The only reason they go after Romo is because they’re not afraid of getting beaned by a slider

Twins have scored more than 5 runs just 5 times in the month of August. Hard to believe

Ramirez needs to get beaned here

Maybe the offense isn't as good as expected? Perhaps career years are tough to back up?

Twins don’t know how to stand up for their teammates

I was thinking that too... Romo still likely pitches after him, though.


Sure - I'm just thinking, as long as Duffey has some gas left, try to get a little closer to the end of the game with him. If nothing else, you'd be sending him out against the middle of Cleveland's lineup.

Clearly there had to be regression expected. Just didn’t think it would be from EVERYONE

I hope they see hanging a 5 spot on the board as standing up for their team mates...

But that is harder done than said.

Doesn’t look or feel like a 20-12 team

What worries me about this year's Twins is there's no end of the game moxie. We don't have it in us to come back late

They have to avoid the Yankees...higher seed all but makes that a certainty. With Chicago and Cleveland clearly not going anywhere...finish in third in the division and you could wind up 6-8

Gotta beat the Yankees at some point in the playoffs... And I'd rather take my chances against them in a three game series than a seven game series.
