Game Thread: Twins vs. Blue Jays, 9/25/21 @ 6:10pm CT (6:45pm for game start)



Good afternoon Twins fans and welcome back to more game thread banter. Tonight the Minnesota Twins try to make it 5 wins in a row! Last night was a great game to watch and it was nice to get a win against former Minnesota Twin Jose Berrios. The Twins starter tonight is John Gant (5-9, 3.76 ERA) against Toronto's leftie Robbie Ray (12-6, 2.72 ERA). The Twins will want to score some runs early tonight as Ray has been a good thrower for the Blue Jays this year.

Tonight's ballgame has some added excitement, the Minnesota Twins will be honoring Justin Morneau with a Hall of Fame induction ceremony tonight. There will be plenty of his old team mates and coaches on hand to honor him into the Minnesota Twins Hall of Fame. I do miss watching Morneau play the game. I always remember that violent swing he possessed. When Morneau and Mauer were in their prime I don't think there was a better 1-2 combination in MLB. I know some people don't like him in the broadcast booth but I sure enjoy his perspective and color commentary. 

Anyway, grab your favorite drink and food/snacks and settle in with Twins Daily to cheer on our Minnesota Twins! Congratulations as well to Morneau. He earned his place in the Minnesota Twins Hall of Fame. 

Go Twins!!!

Per Squirrell's banner announcement, apparently game isn't until 6:45pm cdt, rather than the 6:10pm cdt, but it shouldn't bother anyone to see the hof induction.

amirite? (well, spelling asside)

How'd you know it was my announcement? I don't do them every game, just some of them :)

"And if you listen carefully, you will hear him grunt with every pitch" (slightly out of order) reminds me of Peter and the Wolf...

Peter and the Wolf? There was grunting in that?

Sigh… Gant…

Gee, he gives up a home run to a dude who is batting .301, 30 hr and a .878 ops,  what a surprise.
