  1. I like the 3 out of 5 idea. Since I'm going to the first three games in LA, I am pulling that they win the first three in this scenario then lose Saturday and Sunday. I saw the Dodgers on Sunday dismantle the Padres in precision fashion, so in reality one of two at Dodger Stadium is a real good thing.
  2. It would be nice to thread the needle with Correa not setting the world on fire the rest of 2022, the Twins still making a long playoff run with Correa's legendary playoff production leading the way, topped off by Correa returning to the Twins in 2023 because he can't get a better offer.
  3. Losing to any Wisconsin entity only infinitely increases the pain, so that added to my frustration.
  4. I thought it was relevant since the OP said something similar in the first paragraph.
  5. Trade talk, prospects, and the draft all bore me for the most part. They are filler and so much speculation.
  6. The switch hitting is intriguing. I didn't know that until watching this highlight reel. Although I personally don't get too excited about prospects sine all prospects are suspects and the impact from this kid is many years away. It seems the Twins did score big on this one.
  7. Try https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/ as an information source.
  8. Is there a way for Twins Daily to have this article automatically posted twice each season through 2028? It will save much effort all around. Buxton is streaky and injury prone, so might as well get this article posted on auto renew until things change.
  9. Let's reconvene on July 1 after 8 games with Cleveland. It should be a fun 10 days or so.
  10. I only remember late career Carew as an Angel and the unique batting stance. It's a marvelous and valid comparison. Arraez is a joy to watch, my favorite Twin of the past 20 years.
  11. The MLB Network mentioned this morning that the GM who fired Maddon was not the GM who hired him.
  12. Attending a live sporting event doesn't have the same appeal that it did a generation or two ago. With high def television and immediately accessible highlights and game recaps, much of the appeal and advantages of going to the game are lost. I personally enjoy being outside and watching the game from where I want to and how I want to. Also, Target Field is just an awesome experience each and every time. I believe all of the reasons given so far are valid. Each person's reasons for not attending are their own. However, the cost argument gets to me a bit. The Twins are nearly giving away tickets at this point (recent $4 and $9 deals). There's $12 parking in Ramp A (cheaper parking close to the stadium as well). You can bring in your own bottled water and outside food into Target Field. There are family-friendly concession stands, located in Sections 133 and 327 with hot dogs, soft pretzels, popcorn, peanuts, soda and canned beer under $5. I have friends and family that won't go even when you offer them free ticket and free transportation even though they claim to be Twins fans. It's difficult to get off the couch and some people don't want to be bothered with going to the games. Others are fans and just simply don't like going to the games.
  13. As for number two on the list, I have been to six Twins games so far this season. Four have been brutal winter/wet weather, one decent weather for a Saturday game, and this past Monday was a pleasant spring night (a bit cool yet manageable). I've attended two Saints games and the weather has been awful for both. I'm guessing this is a fairly representative weather sample. Add the poor weather with hangover effects from COVID, some people still staying away from Minneapolis, and live attendance not having the appeal of previous generations and we have our current Twins attendance scenario.
  14. Keep winning the games you are "supposed" to win and win those series against those same teams. June will be here soon enough as an adequate test. It'd be nice to have built a cushion when the schedule gets tougher. This team might be legit.
  15. Haha, 31 years with no titles and a record setting playoff losing streak can wear you down. The complaints flow easier than the compliments. The shot at government workers was not cool.
