2 chances with bases loaded. Cruz with a K, and Polanco (PH) with a K. Lots of swings at pitches out of the zone.

We continue to be the WORST team in baseball with bases loaded - by a wide margin.

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

Alright, in this game someone that can strike people out would be awfully nice. Bats aren't the problem so far. I agree. As a side note though' 5 solo HRs... I mean just by odds you'd think at least 1 or 2 would have someone on base. Its uncanny, I think I heard something like 13 of our last 15 HRs...

Re: Consumer Research

The new house we moved in had speakers built in on the main floor and basement. Anyone have a recommendation on a solid but not outrageous receiver which would work to connect to both sets of wires and speakers? I am a big fan of my Marantz. Depending on what you need, they've got solutions for mos...

Re: Simple Pleasures...

How did I not know this until just now, and by accident.

If I unplug my center channel, the play by play and color commentary is gone, and all I get is ambient crowd noise and sound effects. Wow! I think every sporting event I watch might be this way from now on.

Re: Tee to Green!

You guys are describing why I quit playing golf. Its a 6 hour commitment. Everything near me is private, so usually a 30 minute drive each way. Then every person is playing like they've got $10,000 on the line each shot. Looking for their top flite xl in the weeds for 12 minutes every other hole. Gu...

Yet another bases loaded double play. Twins have had more than enough chances to win this series and just cannot put it together.

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

Like I said. Rogers has been one of the best relievers in baseball... Oak gets a hit w/ RISP while we are 0-5. The offense gets off the hook so easy? So, when our offense is down it's not their pitching? Potato, potato. I'll say it again. I want more pitching. I'm not saying we can't use pitching h...

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

Cleveland finishes the sweep. After losing twice 13-0 to the Orioles, they have gone 11-2, and the 2 loses were to the Twins. However, as when people were upset about our record for teams over .500, the Indians are 15-21 against teams over .500. Cleveland now plays KC who has won 4 straight but did ...

I get being aggressive, but 3 guys striking out with maybe 1 pitch actually in the zone is a little ugly. Oh well. Won the series and increased the lead to 6.5

Over half the Cleveland Indians have HUGE wads of chew in their mouth when they come to the plate... Do any other professional sports have guys chew while playing? Can't say I've seen it in NHL or NFL and I don't watch NBA. Maybe PGA? Would MLB ever do anything about it? It's disgusting to watch guy...

Re: Consumer Research

We're looking at installing an irrigation system in our yard. I got quotes for a Hunter system with 16-18 heads and another for a Toro with 21-23. It led to a couple questions 1. Is there a big difference between the systems in general? 2. Is the fact that one quote includes a lifetime warranty on ...

Twins hand Texas two outs in the 4th inning after having runners on 2nd and 3rd with nobody out. Contact play (have I mentioned how much I hate the contact play?) where Sano gets thrown out at the plate -Buxton was the batter. Buxton reaches first and then steals 2B so we get back to runners on 2 a...

What a stupid review. I really get sick of replay for plays being decided by a gnats ass hair.
