    Old Twins Cap got a reaction from wabene in Week in Review: Capitalizing on Cushy Competition   
    Twins need Kepler to hit for sure.  Yesterday, before the 8th inning, Kepler had ruined the two best chances the Twins had of scoring, dribbling the ball down the 3b line twice.  Redemption came sweet.
    If you think back, this is the 3rd Division team the Twins have pantsed in the 8th inning.  First Chicago on the Anderson/Abreu snowball fight, then Detroit on the casual flip into LF by their catcher as two Twins stood on 3b, and now the KC collapse with a 6-run lead.
    Rather be lucky than good.  So far, Twins have been lucky against the ones they need to beat.

    Talk to the Yankees' fans, they don't like the trade either.  Would you want Donaldson in the lineup at this point?
    The Yankees were the only team willing to eat JD's contract, allowing us to get Correa.
    Urshela is a gamer, and a solid defender.  Sanchez is a back-up catcher who can hit when he's hot.
    And, to be fair, I haven't checked, but it sure seems like offense is down across the board this year.
    All that said, you would have to go back pretty far to find the Twins so completely out-played in a series at home.  Tampa Bay used to do that here about five years ago;  it sure brings out the defeatism in our estimation of the Twins.

    When you win the first two games of a series going 0-15 with RISP, after winning two games in April because your two chief division rivals needlessly threw the ball all over Target Field at the end of the games, you know at that point your team is experiencing really, really GOOD LUCK from the baseball gods.

    Twins will add a closer and some depth for the BP in June or July.
    They have the arms to compete, albeit not with the Dodgers or Giants, but winning regularly is a tide that lifts all boats.
    Future is bright though.  Building a Tampa Bay like depth around Buxton and Correa and Polanco makes the Front Office look smart.

    Looks like a lamentable defeat, with a couple runners out at the plate, players out with Covid, HBP on Correa, maybe a few other things, but, who's counting?
    Good teams win this series.  Twins aren't there yet, though they are knocking.
    First time I've seen a swim move on a slide (by Miranda) actually cause an out.

    I feel like the baseball Gods have decided that in order to make up for imposing a 17-game playoff losing streak on the Twins, that every AL Central team will have to pull down their pants in the late innings of a close game and show the world their naked butts.
    Or something.

    Old Twins Cap got a reaction from D.C Twins in Twins 9, White Sox 2: Buxton, Bundy Lead Twins to Needed Comfortable Win   
    It's the starting pitching.
    Twins fans mercilessly ripped the front office for the Bundy signing, and spent the whole off-season complaining that they were wasting Buxton's "window years".  Lots of question marks -- Ryan, Ober, the other prospects, and the pedigree of last year's signings that ruined the season,.
    Welp, how does Number 1 in the American League ERA feel?
    You don't get where they are, and their hitting has been historically bad, without that pitching.   And the bullpen has blown two late-game leads....
