  1. I replaced my Twins hoodie a little over a week ago. The Twins haven't lost since. You're all welcome.

      @Otto von Ballpark I sacrificed my 2003 era Jersey after the 2019 postseason and it had no effect.

      I had to quit buying jerseys for a similar reason.  Every time I bought a jersey, he'd be gone less than a year later.  That happened with 3 consecutive players.

      It's going to be a little warm wearing the new hoodie all summer for us, but suck it up, cupcake. 

       

  2. So Max Kepler now has a 170 OPS+ because of course he does.

      SSS number fluctuations indeed be crazy.

      I hope it continues to into the not so SSS territory!

  3. While Buxton is the obvious hero, I don't feel enough people are talking about Urshela no-hopping a throw to first while plopped down on his ass.

      He had a pretty good day at the plate as well, including driving in the first run on a sac fly.

  4. I’m legit excited to see Winder’s debut some time this season.

      Duran's the guy I'm anxious to see

  5. If baseball is going to keep playing 162, I'd much rather see a 4/10 start with more doubleheaders every season.

    1. wsnydes

      I've been asking for the return of scheduled double headers for a long time.  I think a creative marketing team could really exploit them too.

      March baseball, in particular, is a disaster.  Even in good years, it is unpleasant.  Personally, I agree with you.  But whatever date the season starts, the first week should, as much as possible, not be in the harsh weather states.

  6. I am so pleasantly surprised that the two sides are closing in on a deal. I thought the chance of that happening was close to zero.

  7. I'm so excited that in just a few days, pitchers and catchers will not report.

  8. So this lockout thing is pretty rad and not at all boring, amirite?

      Is this sarcasm?  I don't understand sarcasm.

      Seriously though, this abyss is rather brutal. 

  9. Luis Arraez was worth 3.4 rWAR in 2021. What? I never would have guessed the number was that high.

    1. wsnydes

      🤨 yeah, that doesn't really compute, but okay!

      Makes sense to me, somewhere between a starter at 2 and an All-star at 5. Fangraphs is not as kind. 

  10. I’ll be skipping this ALCS, thanks. I hope the NLCS ends up more interesting to me. 

  11. Brett Anderson is still only 33 years old. That's kind of breaking my brain.

  12. Nick Punto had a 1.139 OPS in the 2009 ALDS.

  13. A 6-4 record is required to avoid a 90 loss season. Four against TOR, three vs DET and KC remaining.

  14. The Twins have fallen 20 under .500, which means 90 losses is a pretty sure thing.

  15. I hate seven inning baseball.

      I do too, but I’ve disliked the extra-inning rule more.

      7 inning MLB games remind me of slow pitch softball 🥎. Bush league, beer league nonsense.

      Me too and I hate the extra innings runner on second.  And, I hate that Bob Barker.  Oops, that's Happy Gilmore.

  16. It shows how far this team slid when I find myself saying "thank god, Randy Dobnak is back, I think I'll watch tonight".

    1. Squirrel

      Squirrel

      And how'd that go?

    2. Brock Beauchamp

      Brock Beauchamp

      @Squirrel Eh, fine, I wasn't able to catch most of the game but while Dobnak sucked at times, bad defense hurt him a bunch and he still went seven innings. It's something to keep watching instead of being disgusted by it all, at the very least. I cannot say the same about a John Gant start.

  17. Why clutch stats are noisy garbage: Donaldson has a 12 tOPS+ in 2 outs, RISP and a 146 tOPS+ in Late & Close.

    1. wsnydes

      wsnydes

      That is truly bizarre.

  18. Ian Gibaut. Really? REALLY?!?!?!

  19. I *hate* the fact we are watching Gant start another game and are going to see Albers again soon. Gross. 

    1. Squirrel

      Don't look now, but he's on the schedule for tomorrow vs the Cubs ... 

  20. The Twins have a relatively decent chance to finish the season in second place, which is absurd.

      @bighat Yeah, Cleveland has gone into a bit of a freefall after losing basically their entire rotation, the biggest strength of the team. It was to be expected, I suppose.

      RpR - I did look last week and saw that the Twins were the best of all last place teams, however they'd still be in last place in every single division with their record. So the Central has the best last-place team at the time, if that makes sense.

      S'pose it's moot now that the Twins are on the upswing. Funny how KC, which has looked like a much better team than Minnesota while playing the Twins, can't seem to beat anyone else.

      The Twins have plenty of games left with the teams in the chase for second place.. There can be a quite a change in positions if a team has motivation. There is no reasonable shot to make up that many games in the loss column and leapfrog three teams. Making up 9 more losses than the GUARDIANS is not reasonable.

  21. It's sad that I see Griffin Jax getting the start today and I'm more optimistic than I was about yesterday's game.

  22. Has anyone checked 1 Twins Way to make sure the lights are on and people are inside?

      They do know the trade deadline is July 30 this year, instead of July 31? Right?

    2. Brock Beauchamp
  23. It's not much fun that every CBO/GM keeps hitting the snooze button on this deadline.

  24. I'm really disappointed to see no journalists worked the phrase "slapping massive dongs" into their write-ups about the Derby. Feels like a real missed opportunity, perhaps even cowardice IMO.

      Maybe ALL of the journalists did and their editors ruined it for everyone?

      @Brock BeauchampWe can't have any fun anymore, can we?

  25. I've rarely felt strongly about specific draft picks in any sport, even less so about baseball. Too much that we as fans just don't know about these kids to have a real opinion about them.
