  1. We recently got the deal through AT&T where you get free Samsung S22's if you trade in any old Galaxy phones. I know there was a reason that I saved those S3 & S4's!!!
  2. Probably not surprising, as the Twins are in Arizona, but Kiriloff is not in tonight's lineup.
  3. https://www.mlb.com/glossary/injuries/10-day-injured-list "The maximum an IL stint can be backdated is three days, even if a player hasn't appeared in a game for longer than that."
  4. Per Betsy Helfand. This is Polanco's 1st ever trip to the IL!
  5. I always hated when Twins fans booed AJ. He had been a valued member of those early '00's teams and was traded to make room for Mauer. Felt that he deserved to be cheered for his contributions in helping to bring us from the brink of contraction back into relevance and post-season contention. Now I'm not a huge Donaldson fan per se, but he did choose to sign with us as a FA and played hard here. And we traded him away...So not sure why he deserves a healthy smattering of boos from Twins fans.
  6. I've enjoyed all 3 episodes, but yes, REALLY liked the 3rd episode. Some of the suspense is obviously lost though knowing that the main characters are all fine in A New Hope.
  7. I still have my ticket stubs both from the 1985 AS Game that I attended with my grandpa and from Game 7 in 1991. Another favorite of mine...I came across a photo online about 15 years ago of Killebrew attempting to hit a ball across the Mississippi River during the '85 ASG festivities. Koufax was supposed to pitch to him, but when they showed up, they both realized that there was no way he was going to hit it across the river. The image that I had found happened to have me (at 8 years old) and my dad in it (we're right below the ball)!
  8. Donaldson has been suspended 1 game (he has appealed the suspension) and fined an undisclosed amount. Also has been placed on the COVID-19 injured list today.
  9. Not much of a hockey fan, but seems like there is more parity in the NHL and/or ability for lower seeded teams to win the Stanley Cup. So I'd say the Wild have the best chance on being the first MN team to break through with a championship.
  10. Switched phone providers recently and got HBO Max for free. Watching 'Barry' with Bill Hader. It's pretty good! Seems to be a lot of good shows on HBO Max that I haven't seen but want to watch like The Wire, The Newsroom, West Wing, Big Love, True Detective, among others. I'm open to suggestions from others who have the channel!
  11. 1) Where do you follow the Twins from? Southwest Minneapolis 2) What's your jobby job? Numbers guy in the Finance/Banking industry 3) How 'bout hobbies? Raising 3 kids, traveling, tennis, MN sports, genealogy 4) How long have you followed the Twins? Based on my baseball card collection, I seemed to start being interested in 1982 or 83. But I vividly remember following closely when Kirby was called up in 1984 and the late season collapse (and Jamie Quirk/Ron Davis debacle). 5) How many games do you attend a season? Varies, but usually about 5 a year. 6) Who is your favorite all-time Twin? Puckett 7) Who is your current favorite Twin? Buxton 8 )What is the coolest/craziest/most absurd/etc thing you've seen in person at a Twins game? Had a Joe Mauer HR hit me squarely in the hands in 2009. I have a saved screenshot from the TV broadcast showing the disappointment of my missed catch. 9) What is the most memorable thing you've seen in person at a Twins game? Game 7 of the '91 World Series! 10) What is your favorite all-time Twins moment? Kirby's HR in Game 6 in 1991
  12. Right. If I feel sorry for anyone, it's Cano, who after a nice 2 IP ML debut and shouldn't have been sent out for a 3rd inning.
  13. Cano received a little buzz in May of last year with his 9 pitch, 9 strike inning as a member of the AA Wichita Wind Surge: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ek96_BGpN6Y
  14. Twins are placing Carlos Correa and Chris Paddack on the IL and calling Mark Contreras and Jharel Cotton up from the Saints per Do-Hyung Park.
