Game Thread: Twins @ Tigers 6:10pm cdt 9/30/2022 ad


Dear Santa,

I have tried to be good. I didn't make fun of Sano when he struck out a bunch. I didn't yell and curse when Royce Lewis got injured again. I even tried not to miss the Austudillo antics. I have followed Twins baseball games as much as i could, given all the things i try to get done. I've even remembered to write game thread intros. Perhaps they have been a little week in actual game info. I don't even know if Judge caught up to Arraez in the batting race. So please 

 

Anyway, since i have been oh so good, and i still don't know what i should ask for, as my stocking isn't large enough to fit a fully healthy Buxton season, or a good veteran free agent signing with leadership. Can you at least give me an exciting game to follow today, and a good thread with lots if people contributing? Even if there might be a few jokes from Chief sprinkled amongst them?

 May the best team win!

Twins:

0. Joe Ryan (R) P

1. Jose Miranda (R) 1B

2. Carlos Correa (R) SS

3. Gio Urshela (R) 3B

4. Gary Sanchez (R) DH

5. Ryan Jeffers (R) C

Sincerely, sampleSizeOfOne.

Palacios on base with a single, Contreras drives him in with a double.  Whoever took that prop bet at their local sports book probably earned a lot of money just now.

And if you also had a Jeffers RBI triple on the same bet, you can now afford to buy the Twins.

Cave isn't a great player, but he might end up with more RBIs than Celestino in less than half the plate appearances.

I respect Caves ability alot more than Celestinos, Gilbert needs alot more seasoning and it shouldnt be done at this level,

Have the Twins started stealing bases over the last two weeks because the games don't matter any more, or because they have finally brought up some players who are faster than tortugas?

Wallner and Palacios are double digit base stealers in the minors this year. And we added Billy Hamilton. Our main players during the year are either not base stealers or injuries didn't let them steal (Buxton and Polanco). You would think Gordon would steal bases but he seems be a split second too slow and gets caught stealing as much as he makes it. I think the 4.5" shorter difference next year should especially help him.

Definition of Speed regarding twins this year, we have hit into the most Double plays and gotta be close to last in Stolen bases ,  also,   == Not Good

More than ability, I respect that he gives 100% all the time. His 100% is not as high as some of the more talented Twins, but we get it every game, every inning, and every pitch.

Cave will be in spring training going for being on the Major League team, and probably make it.
