  1. Well, this is just the Twins’ season in, ahem, a nutshell.
  2. I think being around 500 at the trade deadline, with this core, and with this soft division, is enough to at least let the players try to go on a run. The only question I have about that is how realistic 500 is with the team having dug a hole this deep and having so many injury issues.
  3. Buxton just made Kirilloff look like he was standing still. You know he’s fast but you don’t often see it in contrast to human of more normal speed.
  4. I got regular groomsman gifts for my friends at my wedding, but my brother best man got that very same ‘85 Topps Puckett card.
  5. Always seemed like a priority to me. Maybe especially so if our competition for signing him is all in-division.
  6. Charlotte should be the next MLB city. It’s booming, it’s already much bigger than both Indianapolis and Nashville, and it would also draw from Raleigh, Durham, Greensboro, and the Rock Hill area of South Carolina. Plus there’s absolutely nothing geographically in between the Braves and the Nationals.
  7. Fact that may only interest me: when I visited the Cedar Rapids Kernels in 2013, mostly to see Buxton in person for the first time, I saw him play against Albert Almora, then on the Kane County Cougars. They were both very impressive, but Almora had the better game that day. (I also saw Dan Vogelbach and remember thinking that if he doesn’t get into some semblance of shape it won’t matter how many homers he hits, he wouldn’t make it to the majors. I guess that was not true.)
  8. Somewhat underwhelmed by Donaldson. Leadoff walk isn’t the ideal start Somewhat underwhelmed by Dobnak. Hes been as expected Excellent positioning by the Twins infield again, compounded by a silly throw. This is gonna be bad. Play the infield back and try to get the DP. Give up one run. How could McCann NOT hit that meatball? So cross off dobnak’s name from the list of those we trust in postseason play. Ain’t lookin too good How is there no one warming Sigh What a GODAWFUL pitch. Robert will literally swing at anything. Sox are embarrassing the Twins. ------------------------
  9. After Luis Robert whacked right into that wall, they pulled the camera back into the infield. You'd expect a normal person to be maybe halfway between first and second, and somehow Buxton was already rounding second base and going incredibly fast. That was something to see.
  10. Two batters in and we're already confused about what the umpire is calling. Great...
