  1. It seems like having 2-3 decent relievers out of 8 bullpen pitchers makes not a good bullpen.
  2. same. If he could sit out until Friday that'd be great Maybe even like July 1st
  3. Happy Father's Day to all who celebrate! The Twins have gotten through the gauntlet that was Toronto, New York and Tampa. Won a Seattle series and now have a rubber match vs the Diamondbacks this afternoon. This year marks one of my person firsts of my now five Father's Day. My wife and I were able to take our nearly five your old son to his first Twins game. He did enjoy the Twins beating the Royals the Sunday prior to Memorial Day. Although I think he enjoyed the Mall of America (Lego Store and Nickelodeon Universe) more. Hopefully his love (or tolerance) for baseball will continue to grow. He also started t-ball three weeks ago. Here are some random facts about Father’s Day: 1.) Became a national holiday in 1972 when then President Nixon signed legislation designating the 3rd Sunday in June to be known as Father’s Day. Although the first Father’s day was celebrated on June 19th 1910, it was recognized by President Lyndon Johnson in 1966. 2.) Washington was the first state to celebrate the day. Pitching Probables: Minnesota: Christopher Archer RHP 1-2, 3.35 ERA, 37 K, 1.34 WHIP Arizona: Merrill Kelly RHP 5-4, 3.68 ERA, 61 K, 1.35 WHIP Lineup MIN: 1. Luis Arraez (L) 2B 2. Byron Buxton (R) CF 3. Carlos Correa (R) SS 4. Max Kepler (L) RF 5. Gio Urshela (R) 3B 6. Alex Kirilloff (L) 1B 7. Gary Sanchez (R) C 8. Trevor Larnach (L) LF 9. Jose Miranda (R) DH 0 P Chris Archer ARZ: 1. Jordan Luplow (R) RF 2. Alek Thomas (L) CF 3. Josh Rojas (L) 3B 4. Christian Walker (R) DH 5. David Peralta (L) LF 6. Buddy Kennedy (R) 2B 7. Pavin Smith (L) 1B 8. Geraldo Perdomo (S) SS 9. Jose Herrera (S) C 0 P Merrill, Kelly Weather: 98 F 34 C (Its a dry heat) First Pitch; 3:10 CDT Go Twins!
  4. Glad I put $10 at +3700 on the Twins back in early April. Dunno if I'll win anything, maybe not. But at least the payoff will be nice if they do.
  5. No. Especially after the Lewis injury
  6. Ok. So that didn't end the way it should. However, lets focus on some positives here. Outside of some very glaring issues pitching(wise) in the bullpen especially, the Twins lineup did prove at least to me that they are able to be competitive with some very good to elite pitching. The lineup in the past week was able to make Gausman, Tallion (to an extent),Cortez, and Cole look absolutely mediocre at best to absolutely dreadful. I hate putting on rose colored glasses, but if some things go the other way in both Yankee losses, Twins are looking at a sweep. Having said that, I wish there was a little more killer instinct in the Twins. Hopefully the Yankee series will show the front office that there are some issues in the pitching department and they can add some pieces to be competitive come September/October. Go Twins
