Game Thread: Twins vs Blue Jays 6:10pm cdt 8/6/2022 ad


Bad ideas for game thread intros:

1. Spoonerisms (work it out for yourself. The least of it is the relative immunity Borrea and Cuxton from spoonerisms)

2. Shaggy dog stories. Take too long to tell, and too hot for the dogs.

3. Pitch puns. 440hz is a recent standard. And who plays High, Low, Jack, and the Game anymore?

4. Peanut Allergies. Charles Schulz not with standing. Is the Doctor in? Will Mr. Brown ever kick the football?

5. Johnny. Who remembers Short Circuit? And are there not better robotics examples more recent in fictiona nd real life?

 

Canada Toronto:

0. Mitch White (R) P

1. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. (R) LF

2. Vladimir Guerrero (R) 1B

3. Alejandro Kirk (R) DH

4. Teoscar Hernandez (R) RF

5. Bo Bichette (R) SS

6. Matt Chapman (R) 3B

7. Whit Merrifield (R) CF

8. Cavan Biggio (L) 2B

9. Danny Jansen (R) C

 

 

 

Minnesota:

0. Dylan Bundy (R) P

1. Luis Arraez (L) 1B

2. Carlos Correa (R) SS

3. Byron Buxton (R) DH

4. Jorge Polanco (S) 2B

5. Max Kepler (L) RF

6. Jose Miranda (R) 3B

7. Nick Gordon (L) CF

8. Jake Cave (L) LF

9. Sandy Leon (S) C

 

Anyway, go for it. Have a better idea than them.

More bad ideas for game thread topics.

6.  Meta humor.  "Why did the Dad Joke cross the road?"

7.   Free Anthony Slama

8.  Least favorite Major League bathroom facilities

9.  The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time

10.  A top ten list that arrives at ten running on fumes

Glad to see kepler back! Though gordon, contreras, and even cave have exceeded expectations (perhaps cuz my expectations were very low)

Very low considering Contreras was 3-25 with an overall line of .120/.115/.360 good for OPS+ of 30....

Not bad.

And still in consideration if we play someone else.

I went as far as considering our opponent's starting pitcher (hmmm) and mascot before nixing the idea...

I’ve always meant to ask you; why do you label your game threads as ads? Are you trying to sell something?

I love it when a pitcher gives up a couple homers and that is the only runs that scored, and he says in the interview post-game that he just had two mistakes. Funny how many meatballs, like the center center hanging meatball slider that Kirk just missed and struck out on wouldn't be a considered a "mistake" by Bundy..... but it sure was. 

It seems the Twins batters miss a lot of those "mistakes" that aren't credited.
