I don't really care one way or the other about the Brewers. I don't want them to win it all but I don't actively cheer against them or anything either.

Looking for a bounce back game today, they've done that all year after a bad one

Mondeci just left the game due to injury. That stinks, even though he kills us he's fun to watch.

IIRC he had the same injury as Buxton earlier this season and was advised not to dive for anything until next year because he may reinjure himself. Apparently it happened.

Yep - that is what they were discussing. Telling him not to dive....good luck with that with a player as good as he is.

That is Miguel Sano's OPS over his last 10 games.

I assumed they mentioned that. I've got the Vikes on TV and the radio call on and the Twins on my tablet.

Sano goes yard again!
Bremer was conspicuously subdued in both calls, especially since the first one may not have landed yet.

How many quality starts do the Twins have since, say, Sept 1 or Aug 1? Doesn't seem easy to search that.

I would certainly hope the Twins get at least four wins out of six against two 100 loss teams that both have more than 50 losses at home...

I am sure season ticket holders wouldn't mind swapping some H and A results. :)

Hopefully though since they won't host at least the first round it will help them come playoffs. Assuming they can continue bombing.

I have to imagine their runs scored in losses has to be ranked fairly high in league history, and I'm curious what was the highest post-season team ERA to ever win a WS.

50 away wins going up against two 50 loss/100 total loss teams for six games. 100 wins should definitely be in the cards and maybe a chance for the HR race but I'd say 100 is more likely.

Last year's Twins team had a better home record than this year's team by three games. I'm not sure anyone would take that swap.

If the Twins can’t manage 3-3 against the bottom of the division then I won’t be upset if Cleveland sneaks ahead.

If the Twins can’t manage 3-3 against the bottom of the division then I won’t be upset if Cleveland sneaks ahead.
Good gravy.

The Twins have a lot of nice perks for season ticket holders: raise the Twins Territory flag (that was actually pretty fun); be in the Mascot race (my son won as Babe). They also have movie nights--they have some free food and ice cream. Sit outside in the Delta Club seats. Some were kids movies and we brought our Grandchildren. Tonight they are having a viewing party for the game at the stadium. We can get there early and play catch on the field and a few other activities. Then go to the Bat and Barrel to watch the game, with free food and drinks (Likely non-alcoholic) provided. WinTwins! (And we just have a 20 game season ticket)

I've totally come around on Cave. I was frustrated last season and when he first came up this year, but he's grown on me. He's come up with some big hits and plays his position pretty well...no Byron Buxton, but who is?

Last night was the hockey equivalent of the fourth line getting all the goals. Good to see. Even better, Odorizzi had a nice turn.

Cabrera scores from first on a double.
The ball was hit to the deepest part of center field which is a long way.
I don't want to say Miggy is slow but I did run to the washroom during the play.

Gosh, how can Nelson Cruz not be on a very short list of league MVP candidates? Over .300 with 40+ HR and over 100 RBI on one of the best teams in the league...

Dobnak has to be the game 3 starter if the Twins make the playoffs. I have 0 confidence in Moonshot Gibson.

Dobnak would “start” game 2, but only as the opener. The idea would be to be a bullpen game like they have done recently. It’s a bad idea to do that in games 3 & 4. It would be too taxing to the bullpen on back to back days. At least with games 2 & 4 they would have an extra day off to rest.
