  1. Way to limit the damage, Twins! Happ has got to be used up now at 101 pitches. Who gets to try to hold it close?
  2. Since misery loves company, here's a fun read... https://www.inquirer.com/philly/sports/phillies/20140720_Retelling_the_story_of_the_Phillies__collapse_of_1964.html. Complete with pictures of a young Gene Mauch!
  3. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Mauch manage the '64 Phillies to the biggest collapse south of the '78 Red Sox (Yankees were 14 GB and won the Bucky Dent game)?
  4. I think we need a 98-cent ticket promotion like this one - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disco_Demolition_Night. What should we blow up as a sacrifice to the baseball gods? They're obviously upset with Twins fans for something.
  5. I forget why Danny Ford nickname was "Disco". It didn't have anything to do with the ill-advised Comiskey Park promotion, did it?
  6. Yes, a very sad day indeed. I think it was a case of mistaken identity. Lots of California Angel players died tragically. Donnie Moore (1995) and a young pitcher with a last name beginning with an 'A' come to mind.
  7. Very nice. I remember checking the AL hitting leaders at the time, and it was great to see Carew, Bostock, and Landreax at the top of the leaderboard. Those guys were like Picasso with a paintbrush!
  8. What are #15, #9, #29, #10, and #44 respectively. I'll take Twins Trivia for $1000, Alex.
  9. Round 2 (California Here I Come Edition) Dan Ford Larry Hisle Rod Carew Lyman Bostock Kenny Landreax
  10. Times up. Castino (3B, balky back, career .302 hitter) - #2 Guzman (Mr Triple) - #15 Randy "Pinch Hit" Bush - #25 How'd you do?
  11. Let's play a game. I'll give you a names, you give me a numbers. Ready? John Castino Christian Guzman Randy Bush Set ... go!
  12. I don't understand how this team just seems to take everything in stride, like it's okay or something. Professionals should be embarrassed to play so poorly. They are losing games in the first inning, before a single Twins player comes to bat. Have some pride and put up a fight, please. I can't bear to watch another 90+ games when the players, coaches, and managers don't have more of a sense of urgency.
  13. Question for the audience: How did Garver get hurt in the first if he was wearing a cup? Please tell me that part of the game hasn't changed.
