7/19 Twins vs Detroit

22 posts in this topic

Well so far, the Twins have looked like themselves. Nary a hit once through the order. Pathetic. Last 3 and 1/3 games vs Detroit....2 runs. But Bartlett has another error.

Can you imagine our pitchers?? I bet they wanna trade in our offense for the New Berlin AA teams.

We can choose to look at the bright side. 4 shut out innings by our 5th starter. I'll take what I can get.

Good news: 5 shut out innings by Baker.

Bad news: 5 futile innings by our offense.

i am shocked they left Baker in for the 7th. They had the chance to take him out to give him the chance to get the win. He was already at 90 pitches and they have a rested bullpen. One innning to many.

bottom of the 8th. I have another beetch. I work in Shoreview. You know, 35W and the new Hwy 10. AND I CANNOT GET THE GAME ON THE RADIO! what a worthless station 1500 is.

Anyway, what happened to Morneau? he was out somehow, but I cant tell how. As much as I like Morneau, about the only complaint I can make about him is he needs to improve his baserunning.

Bottom of the ninth. tie score. We need one run to win. All we need is a jack and it is over. Lets see, we have Punto (1 hr), Tyner (O career hrs), and Castillo (0 hrs) coming up. We will be lucky to score with 3 singles. Ugggh. I love my Twins, but they are sure trying my patience.

Wild pitch, he started running for home and the ball bounced right back to the catcher. Caught between 3rd and home the catcher threw to third and Morneau rose his shoulder so the ball would hit him. Called out.

So is it time to start selling our players, or do you think, we should still buy?

I cannot believe they left baker in that long. Seems they always leave the starter in to long and they have a bad inning when you can see they are having trouble. I'm no wizzard but, I tell my wife all the time, watch them leave the starter in to long and let another 2-3 runs score. We dont have the bats to get those back.

Last year was a great run but I cannot in any way see this again this season. I do keep watching but its getting old, fast.

Wandering,

Maybe we can combine the Twinks and my beloved Pale Hose and have one huge garage sale of players???

I don't think the Twinks or Sox have enough in the tank this year to overtake the Tribe let alone the Kitties. Maybe we can package players in the garage sale......

Nick Punto and Juan Uribe

Tyner and Ryan Buckvich

Let's get some garage sale signs and start putting them up all over New York, Boston and LA...going to the highest bidder LOL

The problem is, I dont think anybody wants them players. The only players they are going to want are the ones we dont want to get rid of.

It would be great to dump all of them guys, then rebuild next year, but the ones teams are going to want are torii, johan, justin, cuddy. Although thanks to the white sox for beating the tribe a few times, it keeps the wild card in reach.

Dan Barreiro yesterday said we need to trade Mauer. Thought that was interesting.

I heard that also, I dont agree, we have him locked for a few years, if we are going to trade lets dump the up coming big unsignable contracts like hunter, castillo, nathan, then try to see if someone will take silva, punto, kubal, tyner, ect... Then maybe we can sign justin, johan.

Baker left in too long again yet Johan gets the hook with a shutout working.

Dan Barreiro was just trying to get a rise for his show.

The Sox are totally out of it and we will pass Cleveland but I do expect the Yankees to keep steamrolling which makes it's tough.

NEVER GIVE UP!

Being a lifelong Cub fan has taught me to enjoy the role of "spoiler" - something to consider once your team is out of it.

Barrero's take on trading Nathan b4 the deadline was right on though, we have Neshek who has a better Opp BA, and a ready-made closer... Trading Nathan, you should be able to get some power for a top 3 closer... And the trading Mauer thing is just stupid.
