Game Thread Twins vs. Rangers 6:40pm cdt 5/5/2021 ad

After yesterday's game thread, i think i'll go for short and sweet, so as not to think so hard.


Fifth day of the fifth month... that's like... 5 squared, or 25. Is that Buxton day? Yes, but that's a trick question, 'cause every day is Buxton day.


It is also el Cinco de Mayo, or Mexican Independence day. I claim no Mexican wisdom, but i support Independence for all!



I'm not sure i would trust the accuratcy of much in the video, but i bring it up for the catchy music, animation style, and determination not to compromise. And i hope the last aspect rubs off on the Twins!


We welcome Sano back to the roster, and hope he picks up _right_ where Kirilloff _left_ off.


It is also good to see Thorpe take the mound, and how he is getting along. I think he has a real chance of earning a spot in the rotation!

Thanks for the game thread opening SampleSize!  Looks like a Colome bullpen night so fasten your seat belts and have plenty of cervezas and margaritas!   Fasten your seat belts may not be the best term - watching Colome pitch is more like a slow torture.     Astudillo better be getting his arm warmed up.   Best of luck to the Twins tonight - I hope the bats are hot!

Twins can not let this pitcher dominate them. Impressive KBO resume, but thats that. That's the equivalent of dominating AA as a 30+ year old, which is what this guy is. Gotta put up better ABs than we saw in the first.
