  1. I agree. I just watched the Nolan Ryan bio on my last Delta flight back home. Watch that and then debate your position. I'm an above average avid baseball fan and learned a ton watching it. You almost can't make it up. These MLB teams need to start letting pitchers pitch. What they are managing to now and how they are coaching these kids now is not working. I miss watching pitchers go 9 innings...I really do.
  2. Great article. St. Peter is clearly not watching the games. I am more than a casual fan and could barley watch this team after the All-Star break. The best term I can come up to describe this team is bland. No spark, no fire, no leadership, no coaching and very poor management.
  3. Agree with you on points 1, 5 and 6. I'm more concerned with their offensive output. Still feels like there are a lot of unknowns there. In addition, the bullpen will need to be upgraded in a big way. Oh, by the way, let's get a new trainer or leader in the strength and conditioning department. Oh, by the way, let's get an instructional coach to teach base running. Paul Molitor was considered a base running genius. Get him to spring training early and let him sit on the bench during the season too. I also suspect we will see a new pitching coach and hitting coach. Nelson Cruz might make a great hitting coach.
  4. I still think there is a 50/50 chance Correa returns. I don't have any information to back that up but its just a hunch. $35mm is still a nice payday...
  5. Welcome back Twins fans to another workday game thread! I'm still dealing with emotional issues regarding this season. If you would have told me back in May we would be in this situation I would have laughed at the absurdity. Under .500 and 9 games back on September 22 is disgusting. I guess we can cheer for the younger players trying to fill in for our ailing starters. I did have an idea for next year though. Maybe we move the Twins team to Rochester, Minnesota to be closer to the Mayo Clinic. It may help with injuries, etc. Just a thought though....Would love to hear from others on what they would do next year to improve the health and durability of this team. Clearly letting your stars take a couple of days of each week has not helped. Hang in there Twins fans! Brighter days are ahead for this team. Go Twins! Today's Lineups: TWINS: 1. L. Arraez, DH 2. C. Correa, SS 3. Nick Gordon, 2B 4. J. Miranda, 1B 5. Gio Urshela, 3B 6. M. Wallner, RF 7. G. Celestino, CF 8. Jake Cave, LF 9. C. Hamilton, C SP - Josh Winder, RHP (4-4, 4.17 ERA) ROYALS: 1. M. Melendez, C 2. B. Witt, Jr., SS 3. S. Perez, DH 4. V. Pasquantino, 1B 5. E. Olivares, RF 6. K. Isbel, LF 7. N. Eaton, 3B 8. N. Lopez, 2B 9. D. Waters, CF SP - Jonathan Heasley, RHP (3-8, 5.09 ERA)
  6. Good morning Twins fans and welcome back to the ever popular workday game thread! For those of you still working from home go ahead and turn on the TV and watch the game while pretending to listen and participate on conference calls. If you're working in an office close your office door and get the radio going. If you work in a cubical city put your EarPods in and listen or watch the game from your computer of smart phone. If those options don't sound appealing go ahead and take the day off. You have my permission. Well, the Twins have certainly spiraled out of control. I'm still in the denial stage of my grieving process...I think anger comes next...I'll wait for the anger stage to kick in before posting anything new in the forums. I will keep this short since we are playing for pride now and not the playoffs.... Today's Lineups: TWINS: 1. Luis Arraez, DH 2. C. Correa, SS 3. J. Miranda, 1B 4. Nick Gordon, 2B 5. G. Urshela, 3B 6. G. Celestino, CF 7. Jake Cave, LF 8. M. Wallner, RF 9. S. Leon, C SP - Sonny Gray, RHP (8-4, 2.83 ERA) CLEVELAND: 1. S. Kwan, LF 2. A. Rosario, SS 3. J. Ramirez, DH 4. J. Naylor, 1B 5. O. Gonzalez, RF 6. A. Gimenez, 2B 7. T. Freeman, 3B 8. L. Maile, C 9. M. Straw, CF SP - Cal Quantrill, RHP (12-5, 3.51 ERA)
  7. My pick to click tonight is Miranda. And no, he does not need to read your rights!
  8. Good evening Twins fans and welcome back to some game thread fun! This season has been a real upper and downer. The Twins need to win tonight in order to keep any possibility of hope alive...I like the drama but really irritated it came to this. I know, injuries have killed us but this seems to be a continual occurrence. Who is actually in charge of health and fortitude on this team? Whoever it is needs to be canned. Just my observation. I'll be interested to see what this teams character is all about. Even with all of the replacement players it would be nice to see some spark. Who knows what will happen but I hope we prevail. Dylan Bundy (8-7, 4.68 ERA) toes the mound tonight against the Royals southpaw Daniel Lynch (4-10, 5.14 ERA). The lineup for the Twins looks suspect but I guess its all we got...grab a drink, fire up the grill (it is Thirsty Thursday) and cheer for your Minnesota Twins tonight. Sorry for the short introduction but I'm irritated it's actually come to this. I'm already looking forward to 2023! Let's win Twins!!! Tonight's Lineups: TWINS: 1. Kyle Garlick, DH 2. C. Correa, SS 3. Jose Miranda, 1B 4. Gio Urshela, 3B 5. Gary Sanchez, C 6. G. Celestino, CF 7. Nick Gordon, LF 8. J. Palacios, 2B 9. Jake Cave, RF SP - Dylan Bundy (8-7, 4.68 ERA) ROYALS: 1. MJ Melendez, LF 2. Bobby Witt, 3B 3. S. Perez, C 4. V. Pasquantino, DH 5. M. Massey, 2B 6. M. Taylor, CF 7. Nick Pratto, 1B 8. Kyle Isbel, RF Nicky Lopez, SS SP - Daniel Lynch, (4-10, 5.14 ERA) Weather: 0% chance of rain, 83 degrees.
