    twinssporto got a reaction from h2oface in Which new prospect intrigues you most?   
    I drove an Austin Martin years ago. That thing turned like it was on rails. Poor gas mileage but man that thing could maneuver well. Had to choose #1 for my vote.

    That car could throw a 12 x 6 curve like Blylevyn.  Crazy!

    Thanks Nick - great writeup. I think this kid will be a huge star. He just looks like he belongs in the big leagues.

    That fact Buxton wasn't dealt makes me optimistic they will get him signed to an extension.

    I'm probably more optimistic about 2022 and 2023 than the average fan. We know Garver, Kepler and Sano can hit at the major league level. Maybe it was just a fluke year. If those 3 can start hammering the ball again I think we will be in great shape with the new guys right behind them or playing beside them next year.
    Hopefully our starting rotation will roll as well with a few of these young arms getting called up.

    Good Morning Twins fans and welcome back to more Game Thread banter and fun! We have moved past July and are now entering the hot month of August. The Twins ended July on a high note with a win last night. Hopefully they can start the month with a win this afternoon. Entering August 1st our team is dead last in the Central with a .419 winning percentage...Got to admit I didn't see that coming when we started in April. Oh well, we have each other to entertain us and a bunch of new young talent from the Rays and Blue Jays to watch. 
    Speaking of game thread fun, it was suggested in last nights game thread I do a survey on what your favorite beverage is while watching the Twins play. I'll tell you I prefer a nice bourbon poured over one large ice cube during evening games. Afternoon games might be a cold beer or a Tito's and soda with a lime. I have to say my consumption during this putrid season has increased. Funny how that happens...By the way, does anyone want to trade me a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle for a home wrecker (1.75 liter of Windsor Canadian)? PM me if interested!
    What's your favorite beverage while watching the Twins play? Go ahead and post your beverage of choice below. Don't be shy! "You do you and we won't judge" (stole the Tito's slogan).

    I'm heading to my buddy's 45 wedding anniversary party at Lord Fletchers on Lake Minnetonka. Will listen to the ball game on the radio and maybe have a Tito and soda or two while watching the boats go by. Will try to post pics from the bar!
    Go Twins!

    For me, it's most often/always filtered, tap water, room temperature. Yep ... that's how I roll ... 
    If I'm eating dinner or lunch while watching the game, a glass of milk. Or maybe an iced tea. Unless my dinner is a smoothie, then I’m drinking that  
    On rare occasions I might splurge and make a milkshake of some sort ... or maybe even a root beer float! Yeah, no games special enough this year for that splurge ... plus, I don't usually keep pop around because I don't really like carbonated beverages, except for that noted exception.

    Preferred Beverage while watching the Twins: that's a toughie, but I'll give it a shot. (heh heh)
    Weekday afternoons - light beer or vodka slush if its extremely hot
    Weekday evenings (depending on the supper menu) beer if we have pizza or I grill burgers, all other menus Irish whiskey (with three ice cubes and two olives) excluding Mondays and Thursdays when I support the Little Woman's dieting efforts and don't drink any alcoholic beverages
    Saturday day games - Sprite, or maybe a vodka slush if it's hot and the Little Woman joins me
    Saturday evening games - root beer (best beverage for washing down buttered and salted popcorn)
    Sunday games - the Little Woman and I split a bottle of wine
     
    Double all quantities when the Twins forget how to play, triple when Baldelli pulls the starter after 4 innings when pitching well and the bullpen comes in and blows the game.

    OMG. That cutter Richardson threw...same motion as Mariano Rivera. Watch how his throwing hand follows through into his left armpit, the way it flops loosely at the wrist at the finish. That's how Mariano threw the cutter nobody could hit. I saw a video where Rivera was teaching that same motion to some other pitcher.
    Kid, keep throwing that pitch. Mix it in with a two-seem fastball, and hitters will have no clue where the ball will be. Mix it with a change-up, and you'll be looking at Cy Young awards.
