Game thread: Twins at Cards. 7:15 PM CDT


Ah, the summer doldrums. The dead period in a baseball season where absolutly nothing much interesting happens. The Twins, coming off an off day, travel down river to St Louis, losing approximately 400 feet of elevation along the way, to take on the Cardinals. 

I wish there were something, anything, that would give us a topic of discussion for tonight's game, but I got nothing. ZERO happened today, or yesterday, as far as I can tell. And let me tell you, I follow this stuff pretty closely, I'd KNOW if there were things to talk about.

Anywhoo, it's J.O. Berrios on the bump for the Twins tonig....wait, wut? Mrs Chief just interrupted me with something about "a train, you idiot." or some such nonsense. I'll bet back to you after I see what she's about.

 

In case she has me otherwise occupied, if someone would be kind enough to post lineups, it'd be appreciated. Finish up July strong, boys, and get back after it in August. I believe Happ gets the start tomorrow.

Top of the 8th and the Twins have the bases loaded. Happ comes in and strikes out Kepler to end the threat. Knowing how our season has evolved, that would not surprise me.

I am baffled at Jax getting the start. He's, ugh. Mind. Boggling. Make him a RP and see if he can do that. Ugh. Just. Ugh.

Any young guy without multiple starts THIS YEAR has a near zero or less chance of starting the year in MN next season. Get the AAA guys and B* (I really need to learn his name) up some this year. Or, kiss next year goodbye.

I figured that he's on normal rest?  That's about all I got.

Simmons should have gone on waivers after the trade deadline passed. No need for him or Cave to take up a roster spot anymore. Start playing for next year.

Well, Cave might be on the roster next year.....who would you put at SS? Polanco isn't viewed as one. 

The pitchers deserve some defense behind them.

Any word on roster moves?

Just posted this in the roster moves thread:

Tallying up today's moves... Berrios, Happ, and Robles traded, opening up 3 40 man spots. Griffin Jax and Charlie Barnes have been called up to fill the two spots in the rotation, and John Gant will take Robles' spot. Edgar Garcia was optioned to AAA. This should leave the Twins with 1 open spot on the 40 man with Gant and Garcia taking up spots.

They must think a lot of the .172 BA Cave has they didn't have room for Wade and Baddoo. Try Gordon at SS for the rest of the season give him a chance, maybe he fails but give him the chance to fail don't just assume it.

Yeah, all he has to do is take his sheets to another room.

I edited fast but you replied faster. The Twins are actually in St Louis, right?
