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

Recommended Posts

Rick

 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.

O.T.C.

Wish Ervin Santana was available for the playoffs if we get in, these games lately feel like playoff games, just win however, 1 more run then the opponent.

twins are still in it, should be a fun weekend of baseball.

so what does a MN sports fan do if the Twins are still in it come Sunday. Do you watch the Twins for the Vikings lol

I was hoping the twins would have been up big last night so they could have plunked Jose Ramirez  from night before

1 game out of the Wildcard with 3 games to go. Who would have thunk this at the beginning of the season.

I'm going to watch the game against KC tonight with my daughter and grandson. Should be fun.

I believe they need to run the table for a reasonable shot. Personally, I hope they don't make it.  It will be embarrassing and deflating to lose to the Yankees. Again.  

It's a great experience for all the young up and comers we have to be playing meaningful baseball this late in the season. For once, the future looks bright.

It's been a good run, maybe next year...

I am very happy with the progress the young Twins have shown. The future looks good if they can keep improving. The team batting average needs to come up and a few tweaks on the pitching staff should put us in contention again next year. KC is a solid team.

      Ice on the majority of lakes on the Iron Rage excluding big water and the mine pits.  I did see someone out today in a hub shelter on a smaller lake.  I'm shooting for a Red Lake trip Sunday if not I'll be fishing smaller waters around Grand Rapids

      Its icing up pretty good from LF to Fort already.  Big change overnight last night.
    • monstermoose78
      Yes someone went through on skogman

      On the south end...  Most open water anglers put away the boats and are looking forward to ice fishing.  Ice forming on back bays and on different parts of the big lake.  With the cold snap, things are coming along nicely.  When the time is right, resorts will communicate when initial ice accesses will be available.  That time is not yet, but it won't be too long!  On the Rainy River...   A few anglers out braving the elements with good success, but for the most part, anglers have boats put away for the year.  Some anglers fished last week with decent success and some big walleyes.  With increased current this fall, river ice will be suspect.  Back bays iced up. Up at the NW Angle...  Ice is forming throughout the Angle.  Some reports around the inlet of 3 inches of ice, but no ice travel is recommended.  Most bays and some areas throughout islands iced up.  NW Angle resorts will communicate when ice fishing begins.

      Just saw the report  
    • Mnfisher
      Heard a rumor that someone went through the ice on Skogman.  Anyone know for sure?

      Cripes, I better get the boat out one last time this week.  Although I'm sure the river will be open for a few more weeks.      
    • leech~~
      That's ok.  Now that your here may be you can post something more current!  Welcome.  😉

      It looks like it could be another "2014" Thanksgiving weekend if this weather keeps up.    That was just incredible to see hundreds of full size pickups and icehouses driving on the lake (south side at least) the day after Thanksgiving!!   Junior and I took the ATV and otter house out for 4 hours that friday afternoon and 4 more hours on saturday morning, and caught 73 eyes.  We were only out in 8' of water but were able to keep away from most of the crowd, and just hammered the fish. Bobbers, spoons didnt matter.  Hope to have a repeat performance later this month👍
