Game Thread "Good Grief" Twins vs. White Sox 6:40pm cdt 5/17/2021


Yeah, grief is supposed to be good... So i am told.
 
Today, i felt it appropriate to honor Charles Schultz. I am sure he would approve Minnesota's baseball team and its stick-to-it-ive-ness in the face of welming odds (no just welming, we only wish they were over)
 
I am too lazy to track down an iconic baseball image, or rather taking a small look, that the series ran almost half a centrmury, i am awed and humbled by the creativity inherent in such a run. Anyway, mad props go to.who ever can track down the image what best represents the Twins season so far.
 
Even as kids we appreicated the strip, as i have vague memories of friends competing to see who could yell the name of the comic strip the loudest.

This one seems like it would be familiar to each and every member of the Twins bullpen.

Starting to pick up a faint but growing chant in the crowd audio... hard to make out, but it might be... yes, it's definitely getting louder as more fans join in...   "Ten run rule!!!" "Ten

Fun fact: the Twins also play in the AL Central.

Hmm,.. with the way both teams are playing and how Chicago kills lefties  I am not coming into this game with a lot of optimism, but on any given day anything can happen.  We can hope for the best!  I am expecting a boycott at today's game - no, not from how the Twins are playing but rather on the presumptive surname of the White Sox Right-fielder.
