Game Thread: Twins v Tigers, 5/25 @ 12:10 local time


Community Leader

Hello Game Thread viewers, it's currently raining here in Minneapolis and slated to continue to rain forever, I'm told.  The accuracy of that forecast remains to be seen, but we'll keep going with the forging ahead regardless!

The Tigers are still in town, having been twice beaten this series already.  The Twins have been a decidedly un-Minnesotan-esque host for them so far, and I don't think any of us here mind.  In fact, I imagine that we hope that the unniceness continues.  The squad maintains a 5.5 game lead in the division over those Pale Hose of Chicago and hope to add to it today.  

I'm not sure why, but this game is being broadcast on Youtube today.  I guess this game was determined to be more interesting than the Rockies/Pirates tilt.  This is great news for those of us cord cutters that never get to watch the local squad.  Though, I'll be one of those suckers at work that can't benefit anyway.  So, I hope those that can enjoy do actually enjoy it.  Know that I'll be with you in spirit...and following on the radio.

Enough of my aimless wandering babble.  The Tigers will start a right handed slinging pitcher by the name of Rony Garcia, who has a solid 0-0 record.  The Twins will counter with a right handed slinger of pitches of their own in Dylan Bundy, who sports a 3-2 record.

Playing in the mud this afternoon are:

From the visiting Tigers of Detroit

1 - Cameron, RF

2 - Castro, SS

3 - Schoop, 2B

4 - Baez, DH

5 - Candelario, 3B

6 - Torkelson, 1B

7 - Castro, LF

8 -Haase, C

9 -Hill, CF

 

From the hosting Twins of Minnesota

1 - Buxton, DH

2 - Arraez, 1B

3 - Correa, SS

4 - Kepler, RF

5 - Sanchez, C

6 - Larnach, LF

7 - Urshela, 3B

8 - Gordon, 2B

9 - Celestino, CF

 

Enjoy the game and the game thread!

Weather.com shows dropping off to a 35 percent chance of rain by 1 p.m. and then to 15 percent by 3 and later. Accuweather keeps it at 75 percent for most of the afternoon. I guess we'll have a data point on the question of which is more accurate.

Just took a look at the radar...it's about 10:45 am currently. I'm in the south metro. There's going to be a break in the rain in about 30 min or so. Looks like it possibly could be somewhat dry for a few hours. It's windy as all hell though. The conditions won't be great, but there's a chance they could get the game in...or at least give it a go.

Same.  It hasn't rained hard, so the field is probably playable too.

Is Jorge Polanco ok? 2 off days in a row is unusual for him. 

Just saw a report according to Rocco...Polanco is dealing with some right ankle soreness. Supposedly nothing real serious, but the Roc wants him to have a few days off.

I think I also read before yesterday's off day that Polo hadn't had a day off since 4/21 or something like that

What's the "Buxton report"? The link just gets us live to an interview that's not about him.

It was on and just a color commentary, YouTube is staying live at Target Field. They are now showing other baseball stuff.

Long time cord cutter here and it's on YouTube...please play the game, PAHLEEZE!

 

Patience is a virtue...

Or so i have been told.

 

So cord cutting is a thing?

 

I can tell people my folks were cord cutters before it was cool?

 

(PS. I still get ads on Twins Daily despite giving up my old timey member monicker)

Today is mudder's day?

Of course...it's Wednesday!

I'm hoping that you know what that's supposed to mean, because I don't...
