  1. Things I've learned from this weekend: Pitchers are having a hard time staying healthy (Verlander, Kluber, Kershaw, Odorizzi, two pitchers in today's game, a whole bunch of other pitchers on the IL) early on. Perhaps from ramping things up too quickly? The White Sox have a legitimately good lineup The White Sox defense is quite awful Cruz does not look like he's 40 and I think it's safe to say his regression due to age isn't happening this year Arraez is going to hit above .300 again this year, I'd seriously consider hitting him leadoff

  2. Verlander out for the season ... Astros without both Cole and now Verlander ... hope they have the season they deserve

  3. So at this point the white Sox should always walk Cruz, right? Like Hack a Shaq?

  10. Mrs Chief and I have had a rough couple months. Her brother died, leaving his pregnant wife alone, ready to have their first child. She soon went into the hospital, and wouldn't you know it...twins! A boy and a girl. They had planned on having Mrs Chief's brother name their child, but since he was gone, she asked if I would step in, and name their newborn twins. I was hesitant...but she insisted. So I went home, gave it much thought, and finally decided on the names. After telling the nursing staff what to put on the birth certificate applications, I went to her room. "Well," she exclaimed. "I'm exited! What is my daughter's name?" "Denise," I said. "I love it! she exclaimed. "And how about my son??" "De Nephew."

  16. I was kind of hoping for a more realistic experience with the cut out fans. Shouldn’t an usher go down and remove 75% of them by now? And replace one or two with photos of sleeping fans?

  23. I'd be OK with Avila facing a lefty because the Twins had knocked out the starter prior to his first AB every time he starts.

  24. Take it off just before it hits medium rare. EDIT: Also, just before you hit "too drunk to bring it inside."

  26. I've got a bunch of people coming over for dinner tonight. Firing up the grill soon. Was going to wait to start drinking but with a 4 run lead I might start early. Please don't judge me.

  27. I can't believe how long I've had to wait to see Maeda pitch...Geez, gotta wait for the Twins to bat through the line up now too. So frustrating.

  28. I didn't think that was gone off the bat, to be honest. And it looked like the OF could've gotten it if he timed a leap. Whatever. Cave's getting it done.

  29. In the past, there was a lot of confusion about injured players hanging around and no information and then suddenly being placed on the IL, later than they should have been. I haven't really seen this with the current FO. While they haven't always spilled out tons of information...which is their right...they seem to be protective of their players well being and aggressive with the IL and promotion. At this point, they have said "stiffness". And I will accept that and a missed start, maybe 2 with a couple early off days. If it's more than that, I will absolutely begin to worry. But I give benefit of doubt at this point. The Twins have depth, but I don't want that to be taken for granted. Thorpe has a ton of potential, and Dobnak and Smeltzer both have decent potential. But I'd like them to ease in to reliability through experience and opportunity as much as possible. Same with Duran. But a short season changes said parameters of opportunity if this is something more. In regards to an extension, there are 2 ways to look at one: 1] I HOPE NOT, but if this turns out to be chronic related to 2017, Oddo is up against a hard place and will be looking for the best 1yr deal in a post 2020 season he can get. The Twins could still need him and easily bet on him for 2021 While waiting for some of their top arms to arrive. And he's already stated he enjoys pitching for the Twins and working with Johnson. 2] Even if he is ready to go with mild stiffness, and the Twins are just being cautious, and he makes 10-11 regular season starts, and we see the 2019 version of him, he is still up against a rock, though a less threatening, less jagged rock. He is a very good #3 SP who can/has pitched like a legitimate #2 most days if you accept 5-6 IP. He was a legitimate All Star in 2019 who was almost as good the 2nd half if you take away July dealing with a finger issue. And he no longer has a draft choice attached to him for 2021. But he's also making just shy of $18M in 2020, though now pro-rated. Even if the 2020 season plays out to completion, including expanded playoffs to make up for financial losses, are teams really going to invest big money for 2021? Especially considering the CBA and questions about 2022? Except for elite talent, I would say no. I think a healthy and productive Odorizzi is looking at a 3yr deal for about $45M. I believe the Twins can not only afford that, but I think he's honest in wanting to stay here. It might also be his best offer.

  32. Can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning... or I guess in your case today, early afternoon. Got some chuck roast burnt ends in the smoker and bacon wrapped jalapeno chicken bombs on the Weber. What are you making?
