Nice first outing by Romo for the Twins! Against his former team, no less.

Sounds like Cleveland will be getting Yasiel Puig as part of the deal.

Indians get Puig, Franmil Reyes, and three guys I've never heard of for Bauer.

Seems like pretty decent return. Reyes is a beast. Cleveland's outfield goes from a disaster to at least serviceable, and they've still got a pretty solid rotation, especially if Kluber comes back.

Yikes. First report i saw was that Reyes was going to Cincy for Taylor Trammel (their #1 prospect). Reyes and Puig to Cleveland just added a lot of pop to their lineup.

So it's just Romo(and some Brewers minor leaguer). I guess you can say nobody else was making moves either, but I really can't believe they didn't get another starting pitcher and another bullpen arm.

They did add another bullpen arm. At least one.

Trades are still rolling in. Wouldn't be shocked if they end up reporting another one.

Twins traded for RHP Sam Dyson from the Giants.

Dyson is a pretty nice pick-up, but it raises the overall grade from a D- to about a C for me. Twins look like they're just happy to be here, rather than trying to win something.

Gotta think this core of twins gets one...they will need that #1 starter and lights out closer...1-9 they're as good as anyone now...

Vikes always seem like a dumpster fire...if they didn't win it 2 years ago, that might've been it for awhile

Wild's dumpster fire is having a dumpster fire

Wolves...well, enough said

Gophs men's hockey will win at least 1 natty in motzko era

Gophs football will win the west someday and go to the rose bowl...actually never mind

Gophs bouncey ball will someday...nope, never mind that one too

Ok, go Twins!!!

MN next title probability

UMD 75%
Gopher hockey 5%
Mankato 5%
SCSU 5%
Vikings 5%
Twins 3%
Wild 2%

With these shifting over time for example Gopher Hockey on the rise and Vikings window closing and UMD likely with a huge drop after next season.

Not saying UMD will be as good after Perunovich & Samberg & Shepard leave...but there’s also NO abrupt drop off in sight, with Biondi, Kelley, Gallatin, Smith, goalie from GR & several other top recruits in the pipeline. 😉

There will be an abrupt drop off of the share of the pie from above. If Johnson and Brinkman are back and Koster is decent Gophers will be at least 25% at this time next year.

I thought it was kind of dickish that she mentioned that he refused an interview. It’s his perogative to decline...maybe he had a few beers before the game or has some other legit reason.

It’s fun to watch some of these high ceiling guys continue to develop. Watching Buxton stretch a single into a double is a thing of beauty.

Twins gave up a grand slam in bottom of the 9th with no outs. Hopefully they can hold on.

The Tigers had Scherzer-Verlander-Price in their starting rotation in 2014.

Welcome to MN
Thanks! I've lived here for 50 years, but I do appreciate the welcome!!

Hopefully I don't become one of those jaded, constant doom fans that can't enjoy any of my local teams. That would just be a $h!teee way to go through life. Don't you think?

I'm very excited to enjoy 12 WCHA games live this year at Mariucci, CC, UMD, and uw. If not for Gopher hockey ya I'd probably just move out of Loserville.

Twins ended up winning. (relevant new information post)
Lead us out of Loserville, Bob.

Zach Greinke is not, IMHO, a clutch play off pitcher.
He also is too fragile of a personality
He also had, it is rumored, a NTC & the Twins wereonw of the teams as a no no.

Kind of an odd decision to throw the guy out there less than 24 hours after he found out he was being traded. I gotta think he was just a hair over-hyper to try to impress his new team. Especially since he's probably been with the team for about 4 hours.

After the second batter reached, they showed Dyson and he blinked about 4 times really fast. I’m not an expert in reading people, but that’s a tell tale sign something is not right.

The Twins will never go “all in” to win the World Series again...as long as a POHLAD owns the team. They already got their two, now they simply enjoy owning a “profitable” franchise...end of story.

I'm going to give a guy that flew from philly and arrived in the 3rd inning to meet his new team a break for not quite having it by the 9th inning. Guy had barely walked anyone all year... I'll give him an outing or 2 before concluding

I like this Mitch Garver kid. The guy has 20 HR in 206 plate appearances and a 0.617 SLG%. Not too shabby for a catcher.
