Re: Vikings 2019 season

I like a team that runs its offense so as not to give the other team a chance at a score. I'm good with the Diggs hook up. Cousins has thrown that ball several times this year and didn't put enough air under it. That pass was perfect...didn't need to score, just needed a first down and good field po...

Schoop's heating up. Can't complain.
Another quality start, too. First time in 11 games Odor makes it through 6. :shock:

Re: Minnesota Twins 2014-2020: Here's Your Damn Thread

Nice W last night. Pineda has been really good the last couple months. Dyson-Duffey-Romo-Rogers allow 2 hits in the last 4 innings and strike out 5 to finish the game. Don't know if the stats agree, but Pineda has been the rock of the staff. After three unimpressive outings by all stars Odor, Gibso...

Re: 2019-2020 Gopher Hockey Season Thread

All this talk of who will be missed I think decentralizes the main point that all of those players who leave are replaced by incoming freshmen, not equally experienced players. That's the nature of college hockey, but the question for this team will be, despite their youth, can they collect enough q...

Re: Minnesota Twins 2014-2020: Here's Your Damn Thread

Twins win, Royals beat the Indians. Twins pick up another game in the standings despite only going 3-3 on the home stand. Perhaps even more important, Perez was very good today and Stashak and Thorpe finished the game off to let May, Dyson, Romo, and Rogers all have two days off before the road tri...

Journeyman pitcher didn't figure to last...but he had a nice game going.

"Gibby" now 6 straight innings with runners on base....he's not fooling anyone. Dyson gives one up and infield with another blown opportunity for an out....what the???

I remember when someone suggested not to panic because the Twins will have the easy Cleveland schedule coming up... Also, the infield defense is little league like. It's like watching the Gophers lose to St Lawrence I thought of the St. Lawrence analogy, too. Gophers seem to let down for teams ever...

Oh boy. On top of an earlier error by Arraez, Twins just blew a run down that most high school teams know how to execute. Seventy-four pitches through 4 and score now 1-4 against an "inferior team." :oops: 8 hits now by Tigers against shut down Gibby...while the Twins struggle against a guy who has ...

Re: Minnesota Twins 2014-2020: Here's Your Damn Thread

Berrios is taking his lumps now, but he is our best starter and am confident he’ll get it together going forward. He’s an ace, hopefully this season he proves it. He's an "Ace" for the Twins... kind of like how Brad Radke was an "Ace". He'd be a 3rd starter for most of the other contending teams. B...

Not sure where all the confidence is coming from , but, after losing a rock of a goal tender and a healthy swath of upperclassmen, I'm a wee bit cautious. Like so many Gophers teams, there is young talent, but will that translate into wins for the fresh faced lads plying their raw, yet unrefined, s...

Re: Minnesota Twins 2014-2020: Here's Your Damn Thread

Instead of battling his way through a tough spot, he succumbed to the gravity of the moment - and sealed the loss for a team that now is 1-3 against teams the experts thought they would feast on. The grand slam was run number five and the Twins offense scored six. Which has zero to do with the grav...

Watching the Twins for the sake of breaking the HR record is satisfying and much less stress than worrying about being a contender. With the “new baseball” a record that won’t stand for long. Does MLB really think fans enjoy seeing the players playing ball in their pajamas with their cute nicknames...

Polanco's error looms large, as well as yet another bullpen meltdown
Not only bullpen, but Gibson handed the ball off early. Seems like they have a bunch of 3 or four inning arms.

Re: Minnesota Twins 2014-2020: Here's Your Damn Thread

No bail out this time...made it close in the 9th thanks to a pitcher who couldn't find the plate, but, alas, no hit was forthcoming.
