Twins in 1st Place - It's been a while

Recommended Posts

Rick

Who'd of thunk all those crazy kids with a few choice veterans sprinkled in would be in 1st place at the end od May.

I'm guessing it has to be a combination of Mauers beard or Hunter's getting the young guys into it. :)

What do you think...how long will they stay in 1st place. I'm betting they are in 1st for a couple weeks.

I wouldn't be surprised if they maintain this for a while. No one saw them coming. They're on a roll and Molly looks so far to be just what the doctor ordered. It's sure refreshing to come home after a long day out in the fields, do chores, crack a cold one, start the grill and settle into a game knowing they actually have a chance to win. Starting pitching with all these renovated arms has exceeded most expectations. Sure they've been shelled a few times but the thing that seems to happen is they're dusting themselves off and getting back after 'em the next time out. We were wondering how they're going to shift things around when Santana becomes eligible again. A nice problem to have for a change. :)

The only bad thing with Ervin is that he is not playoff eligible, should we make it that far. 

Speaking of playoffs they threw out the stat the other day that we really only need to play 10 games over .500 the rest of the way and we should have a shot.

I'm with mrklean, not really sold on it yet. It all depends on if our pitching can stay consistent and we can stay healthy.

​Ummm..the Twins aren't doing what the Colts did to spark Mora's playoffs tirade...

Exactly the opposite negative nelly :D

I agree, the Twins have been fun to watch so far this year, it is nice to see some young kids having fun. I just dont want to jinx them with play off talk quite yet.

Blew a 4-12 lead last night to lose 6-4. My 2 week prediction went out the door in a hurry.

Now who is brave enough to predict when the Twins will be back in 1st place again?

The Twins have the 2nd best record in baseball. Now in 1st place all by themselves for the 1st time this season.

​It's unbelievable. You look at this lineup on paper and you have to wonder how the heck they're doing it. I'll enjoy it while it lasts, but honestly? I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop.

My guess is the injury bug will catch up with us soon.

So it seems a new coach helped the team more then I thought it would.

Well there looking good, as long as they don't play Det. Why did they play Perkins in that 6 - 4 loss  in a tie game, I'm still not sure he's closer, he scares me

Not happy about the sweep by KC but I am happy with what the Twins have done so far this year. When Santana gets back in under a month it should have a ripple effect on improving the Twins pitching.

Good to see Buxton & Vargas contribute last night.Vargas's homer was crushed,he's a big guy,look out if he gets his timing down & learns to lay off the low & away off speed breaking stuff

 They have exceeded expectations and an above .500 season is what I expect. They are young with a lot of very nice developing pieces.

I'm definitely excited about the future.

The Twins need to beat the poor teams. They haven't been doing that lately.

How will we do against Cincinnati...Twins getting their butts kicked right now.

Well, will the Twins make the playoffs or not? They are 2.5 games out of the Wild card behind Houston and tied with the  LA Angels. Twins have 7 games against Cleveland, 3 against Detroit, and 3 against KC.

While Houston has 3 against the Angels, 3 against Texas, 3 against Seattle and close out with 3 against Arizona.

LA has 3 against Houston, 3 against  Seattle, 3 against Oakland and 4 closing out against Texas.

Of course LA and the Twins are 4 back of Texas, The losing streak may have finished us off. What do you think?

As Jim Souhan said the other day, its simple. Until the twins are out of it, they're in it :)

They far exceeded my expectations this year, if they dont make the playoffs, this year was still a huge improvement over the last few years.

I am hoping and pulling for them to make the playoffs.  However, I just don't think they will.  The series against the Angels, really took the wind out of the sails for me.

I am happy we should end the season at .500 or better, I has been a good season.  It is so very nice to be discussing playoff possibility here in late September.

      Saturday fished by Dunvilla on lake haven't fished since Christmas. searched all over for them and after 3 augers searching in different directions for an hour we found them hugging a sunken island. landed a big large mouth and a ton of 4-6 inch gills. Crappies were almost impossible to find.    Sunday tried around our cabin. Buried ranger AGAIN. Got out found dry path drilled grid pattern and fish were not in it. Had to drill 60+ holes to find them in a 40x40 area in 33 feet of water. few 10-11.5 inch crappies with one 14" small tungsten with Ripper plastics were ticket again. Hopefully get out this weekend and actually fish during prime time for once lol.
