  1. Just updated the recap. Sounds like a boxer’s fracture. Sounds like “weeks to months”
  2. On an already emotional night, the Twins and Reds played a 12-inning game before Miguel Sano smashed a walk-off home run for the win Box Score Starter: J.A. Happ 4.2 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 5 BB, 4 K Home Runs: Nelson Cruz (16), Nelson Cruz Top 3 WPA: Matt Shoemaker (.969), Miguel Sano (.384), Caleb Thielbar (.232) Bottom 3 WPA: (if they lose)Win Probability Chart (via FanGraphs) Before Monday night’s game even saw the first pitch tossed it was a big night.

First, on Cancer Awareness Night the Twins remembered bench coach Mike Bell who passed away during Spring Training after his own fight with cancer. If you missed the tribute it is a must-watch. Also, Monday marked the day that MLB’s new foreign subs
  4. Maeda’s command played peek-a-boo as he made his return from the IL, the young outfielders provided the offense, but it wasn’t enough as the Twins lost to the Mariners. Box Score Starter: Kenta Maeda 4.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 7 K Home Runs: Alex Kirilloff (5), Gilberto Celestiono (1) Bottom 3 WPA: Robles (-.241), Farrell (-.226), Donaldson (-.163) Win Probability Chart (via FanGraphs) It had been 20 games since we last saw Kenta Maeda take the mound for the Minnesota Twins.

His return was made up of several shifts from moments of “Old Maeda” showing some great command and then “2021 Maeda” losing command and back again. While it wasn’t the most comfortable of rides, Maeda gave the Twins 4 good innings and held the Mariners to one ru
  6. Sorta took it as a compliment since you took my writing to be at robot competency! Also very much appreciate you reading!
  7. I guess add emotionless to the ways you can describe me. 😀
  8. Berríos proved matchless on Memorial Day in an extra-inning win while the offense continued to misfire until late. Box Score Starter: José Berríos 8.0 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K Home Runs: Jorge Polanco (5) Top 3 WPA: Rogers (.383), Berríos (.332), Robles (.199) Win Probability Chart (via FanGraphs) It was a nail-biter and likely produced hyper-ventilating and heart palpitations for those watching, but the Twins pulled out an extra-inning win on a day America remembers those who have fallen so we can enjoy the freedoms we do.

  10. Mother nature almost disturbed the Twins path to a win. It was a trip through the lineup in the 8th that helped the home team weather the storm for a series opening win. Box Score Starter: Matt Shoemaker 6.0 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K Home Runs: Trevor Larnach (2), Kyle Garlick (3) Top 3 WPA: Garver (.279), Garlick (.278), Shoemaker (.247) Win Probability Chart (via FanGraphs) It wasn't the cleanest game ever, but the Twins with the help of some good performances and a strong 8th inning were able to get themselves another win.

To sum it up: After some very promising starts, Happ for the second turn in a row had a start he will tr
  13. J.A. Happ’s beard was in postseason form tonight, but that was about all that was for the Twins as they lost 16-4 to open their series with the White Sox. Box Score Starter: J.A.
