  1. Burton's knee injury was entirely preventable. If he runs hard it of the box he's standing on second. Instead he dogs it and has to slide to make it to second. No trainer can prevent that, it's on the player.
  2. So I only get to watch the Twins when they are playing the White Sox or are on national TV. I tune in and get to watch this $h!& show...
  3. I attended this game last night. Here are my observations.Twins offense was pretty much non existent. 1 run on 3 hits for the game.Varland looked really good.There were a couple of long outs against him.His fastball was 94-95 to start the game and 93-94 in the 6th. 9K's and 1 walk, not to many 3 balls counts.His off speed stuff looked good too. 91 pitches, 62 for strikes. He left with a 1-0 lead. Sisk came in in the 7th and promptly hit a batter and walked the next. a bunt and a sac fly tied the game.Thornberg pitched 2/3 of and inning without issue.His fastball was 94-95.Peacock got the bottom of the 9th and I can't tell you what his stuff looked like because his 2nd pitch went about 430 feet on a rope.An absolute no doubter. One of the hardest hit balls I've ever seen at Principal park. Saints lose 2-1. Game took 2:19.
  4. I attended the Saints game against the Cubs here in Des Moines today. Here's what I saw. Balazovic's fastball was 94-95 in the first inning. He had trouble throwing any of his other pitches for strikes, so they started sitting on his fastball. Threw 75 pitches in 4 innings. In the 4th he was down to 92 on his fastball. to be honest, he really didn't look very good and he was visibly frustrated during the game. Strotman was, well Strotman. 1 2/3 innings 2 K's 2 walks. hit 97 on the gun once, but was usually 95. Moran looked good in his 1 1/3 innings. 3 K's. Cotton looked good too, but did make a mistake and game up a dinger. Palacios made a really nice play on a ball hit to his left in the 2nd. Later in the game, Contreras made a nice catch against the wall in center. Helman and Bishop hit HR's for the only offence. final score cubs 4 Saints 2. I've posted about this before, but a pitch clock is a MUST for MLB. 9 pitchers used today and game time today was 2:12.
  5. Yeah, well they aren't using the same baseball now as they did in 2019. Apples and oranges.
  6. well, you get a lot more than 1 channel for the $65. A couple of years ago I got the Twins and 100+ channels for $65.
  7. So what? to use an investment line, past performance does not guarantee future results.
  8. Frankly, I'm losing interesting baseball, at least the way the Twins play it. Pitchers pulled after 65 pitches and 5 shutout innings. The lack of fundamentals, the analytics above all else approach. Just boring baseball.
  9. Nah, we will just hang around and watch this make no difference in October, if we even get that far. These are (maybe) win the division moves, not seriously challenge for a world series moves.
  10. They need to sell. Even if they picked up a few pieces, they wouldn't be competitive in October, too many holes in this team. Sucks but we should be used to it by now.....
