Game Thread: Twins vs. Yankees, 6/10/21 @ 7:10pm

Good evening and welcome back to the Twins Daily Game Thread fun! If you live in Minnesota you know it's really hot here. I know we have TD members scattered around the globe but right now we might be one of the hotter places in the world right now. In Minneapolis we have a dew point over 72, a real feel temp of 108, bright hot sunshine and a major league baseball team that is ICE cold....

I hope we can at least stay close to the Yankees tonight. The lineup is looking better but I have no idea who is playing center field tonight. Here's looking at you Gilberto Celestino! Make the most of it kid. Looks like Buxton is getting closer to coming back. By the way, I went to Tuesday night's game against the Yankees. I can't believe I actually sat through 9 innings of that disaster. Four errors is totally unacceptable. I was sitting about 4 rows behind 3rd base and did see the Turtle make a great grab...also saw a sad error too.

After the game on Tuesday against the Yankees and seeing it in person I came to a few conclusions. Number one, this team looks flat. Some may say deflated. Not really sure but this team needs a kick in the pants. Number two, it was so hot Tuesday night I think I lost 12 pounds in water weight watching the game. Number three, I hope my kidneys are starting to function again. Drinking 30 beers and not having to use the restroom can't be a good thing. Any urologists out there? I might need a consult.

Anyway, back to tonight's game. I would love to see us pick up one win against the Yankees. I'm not holding my breath but you never know...Let's go Twins!!

Wow, is this ugly. Let the drinking begin!

I was at the Twins@Cubs game a couple of years ago where Rosario and Kepler I believe were removed from game for heat exhaustion. I also made a bad decision. Sitting on rooftop (all you can drink) and realized two hours after game sitting in bar that I had not gone the bathroom in 6 plus hours. Knew that could not be good

Haven't the Twins already lost this game? It's against the Yankees. 

Still have to send dudes in uni's out onto the field, and somebody has to lob the ball toward home plate... contractual obligations and so forth.

Is it Happless's turn to be the rocked lobster tonight?

Celestino circles a fly ball to center. A better route could have been more acceptable.

When these guys reach out to serve the ball to the outfield, that's the time to but a fastball in on their wrists.  If you hit them, you're no farther behind.

I don't understand how this team just seems to take everything in stride, like it's okay or something.  Professionals should be embarrassed to play so poorly.  They are losing games in the first inning, before a single Twins player comes to bat.  Have some pride and put up a fight, please.  I can't bear to watch another 90+ games when the players, coaches, and managers don't have more of a sense of urgency.

You may want to think of watching the 2021 Twins as a visit to the dentist... the novocaine is administered before the procedure, not when it starts to hurt.

Ot like a colonoscopy;  this will be a bit uncomfortable, but we do have to shove this up your rear.
