  1. If I remember correctly, they occasionally went off topic...
  2. Fun can increase exponentially with this team quickly.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. A lot of chickens have had their lives saved by the Twins this season.
  6. Sadly, with this season, I think the "something worse" will always have the potential to just be a game down the road.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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....)
  10. 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.
  11. He thinks he is pitching to Joe Mauer? (full disclosure - I liked Mauer, but understand the frustration).
  12. It has led to some really awkward moments during the holiday meals.
  13. I have a vague memory of my brother maybe not so accidentally breaking the arm off of my sister's knock-off Barbie, and I think her name was Midge.
  14. I noticed how hardly any of the players have a Doris Day song as their walk up music anymore.
  15. Hopefully when Berrios pitches against Baltimore in the play-offs he will be sharper.
  16. I feel like Chief and Son of Chief being there is inspiring them. I also feel I can go to bed now. If they lose now, I don't want to see it.
  17. Watching this season is much like looking at certain masterpieces (although we might be getting closer to rising up to the level of purgatory - going to look for the positive).
  18. I would say Vance "Vanimal" Worley went on to bigger and better things as well, being a consistent poster on the award winning Twins Daily webpage.
  19. I think Dan Gladden said last week if we win every series we will be back above 500 June 23th --- we are on our way. Division leaders by the All-Star Break!
  20. I am not sure Metamucil and the related comments are the positive energy the Twins need right now.
  21. I think all the positive energy from the thread somehow reached the team and made that hit possible.
