Game Day Thread: Minnesota Twins at Chicago Cubs; 9/22/2021; 6:40pm


Happy First Day of Fall!

Well, this season didn’t turn out like anybody expected or wanted. When the 2021 season started, we had hoped our beloved Minnesota Twins would be playing deep within the autumnal glory. For a myriad of reasons that have been hashed out on Twins Daily alone, the hometown nine will not be making a play-off run this season.

It’s going to be a long offseason. Maybe now is a good time to pick up a hobby to occupy our lonely, baseball-loving hearts. Macramé? Decoupage? Day trading?

Apparently, some of the Twins players have side interests to keep their minds off their apparent 2021 baseball playing ineptitudes. We all remember Trevor May’s love of video games. Or Pat Neshek’s autograph obsession. Currently, it looks like maybe Tyler Duffey is gunning for Brace Hemmelgarn’s team photographer gig.

What other avenues do you think our boys partake in during their downtime? Does Max Kepler ferment his own sauerkraut? Is Willians Astudillo a yoga instructor at the YMCA? Maybe Kenta Maeda is really into claymation.  

Any other wild guesses?

Here's a some for him!


Not quite Gumby, but entertaining for a minute or two...

That's awesome! I also love that Good Mythical Morning is next video recommended

I wonder if Jeffers knows that he closes his eyes right as he catches the ball?! That close up of him catching that third swinging strike to Happ leading off the 4th was another example, but I have seen several others. That wasn't just a one of......

multitasking during a meeting, putting kids to bed, watching the game a bit... I'm maybe not paying as close attention to any of the three as much as I should... I missed both of Kepler's homers

This is a bad Cubs lineup. Hopefully a good way to build some confidence. By the way, with Polanco and Buxton out ours isn't that much better. I'd like to see Ryan pitch against Houston or the Yankees and see how he fares. He's looked good but 2 starts against Cleveland and 2 against the Cubs definitely helps.
