  1. Who knows what really went on behind the scenes, and a player bears responsibility for his bad play, but I remember thinking at the time that Zimmer was not the best person to deal with a rookie like Dan Carlson having a shaky start. Perhaps for a while, that might have just been dealing with kickers in general. I have a feeling Zimmer does not have a lot of patience for things that are not in his wheelhouse. Didn't someone, and his father, take a parting comment about how Zimmer treated players a couple years ago? Not that you don't have to take comments like that with a grain of salt, but the comments today are not totally out of the blue. I think the coach often gets blame for things beyond his control, but I don't think there are too many people, maybe even Zimmer himself, that did not feel it was time to move on.
  2. I am going to be positive for now and not overanalyze and say -- 2022 World Series MVP -- hopefully he negotiated some sort of bonus for that.
  3. If I remember correctly, they occasionally went off topic...
  4. Fun can increase exponentially with this team quickly.
  5. I bet Ken Burns is debating about holding off on releasing his revised Baseball series to add a chapter to spotlight the 2021 Twins and Tigers teams.
  6. I got home around 9:30 last night, debated about listening to the game, checked the score, where I believe they had a 5 to 1 lead in the top of the 9th, so I decided just to watch the Olympics - that chicken dinner was being prepared across Twins Territory. What were the chanced that the bullpen would blow a lead at that point?
  7. A lot of chickens have had their lives saved by the Twins this season.
  8. Sadly, with this season, I think the "something worse" will always have the potential to just be a game down the road.
  9. I was out watering and remembered the game so I checked my phone -- and thought 13 - 0 in the third inning has to be some sort of phone glitch. I then took the dog for a short walk and checked again -- and then checked how half glass full vs glass half empty the game thread was and realized - the score was not an error with my phone.
  10. I just caught the tail end of the conversation, but Provus and Gladden were talking about this and that it was league wide. Something about last year's short season contributing to it. It might have been that people were not as conditioned because of it or they took it easier in spring training this year because of it. Baltimore broke the game open around that time and for some reason I had to turn off the radio.
  11. Probably not exactly the right place to put this -- but technically they are ex-Twins - Mauer and Morneau look like they could still fit into their old uniforms. RandBall on Twitter: "M&M boys. Just like old times https://t.co/aqxJpnlqsL" / Twitter I think some of these retirees could possibly compete to get on the current Twins' roster. I need to check my spam folder to see if that is where evite went. Mauer and Friends Kids Classic | Minnesota Twins (mlb.com) [Apologies if this has been posted somewhere - I needed to do something to take my mind off the current game....)
  12. I am not sure that guy would be able to handle a game thread. He would end up in a straight jacket. I have noticed there is not a lot of quinoa discussion on these threads.
  13. He thinks he is pitching to Joe Mauer? (full disclosure - I liked Mauer, but understand the frustration).
