Twins at Chisox

Twins took 2 of 3 from Baltimore and are 1/2 game back heading into Chicago for a three game set. This is what I call baseball.

We need to win this one!

big series, no doubt about that. But with the way both the Sox and Twins are playing-- I'am thinking it will likely come down to the last 3 games of the year between the Sox and Twins at the Dome. Almost would be a shame with the way this season is carrying out if those last 3 games don't mean win or go home.

This is about the fifth "critical" series these three teams have had in a month. The schedulers got this one right. They games truly are all big at this point. Get three or five games behind anybody and you might be done. The Red Sox are feeling that right now. From division contention to seriously wounded in the wildcard chase in under a week. That said, the Twins just don't give up. They are still in this hunt for awhile. no matter what happens in this Sox series.

I can't wait for the game tonight, my plane leave's at 1pm and lands at O'Hare at 2:15pm and be drinking by 3. We have really good seats for this series and looking forward to sitting with all the Sox fans.

You watch the Red Sox get back into this thing and it will be all ESPN talks about.... the lead in every night.... Big Papi this, Manny that, Papelbunk this, Affleck that.... All I'm saying is that we can only hope the Red Sox continue mediocrity so that either the Twins and Chi Sox can get some recognition. I heard Mike & Mike this morning and they were talking about the top MVP canidates... Big papi, Jeter (whatever), Dye, Mauer & Morneau. I agree these are the top canidates, I just for some reason don't like Jeter as much as the others. Sorry, didn't mean to hi jack this thread.... Twins take 2 of 3 games this weekend.

Yep, another huge series. We have a great chance to take the first two with Radke and Santana going. Silva is another matter. Sometimes he's on, sometimes he's pitching BP.

I think you are dead right mudcutter, it will come down to the last series of the year. I didn't know its going to be at the dome though. That will be a crazy series.

Don't forget the Tiger's; they aren't exactly playing stellar baseball right now, and are following the footsteps of the Bosox. There could be a big Tiger choke on the horizon with Minnesota and White Sox winning the division and WC. With Radke and Santana on the mound for game #1 and 2, our solid bullpen, and the Twin hit parade, plus our recent sucess against Chicago, I like the Twins to win the series.

I like the Twins for 2 out of 3, but even if we only get one, we should still be in alright shape.

Buzz, I agree with you. I hate ESPN. The Red Sox are a mediocre team and there is no way in heck that Jeter should be considered for MVP. Mauer either for that matter. It should come down to Ortiz, Dye, Morneau, or Haefner(who doesn't get any recognition but is better than all of those guys).

I agree Hafner is getting ignored probably more then anyone. He's been a stud this year. But since his team is losing its hard to always seen what he's doing.

Twins win 5-4. Rough start by Radke but the bull pen held strong. Nice mid-game rally. Finally back in the wild card seat. I hope they keep it going.

Silva is due for a good start. Every other he seems to do well. Buerhle is horrible. My prediction is Twinkies win 9-4.

Only 5 games behind Detroit. Although I don't think they'll fall out of 1st. There pitching is to good.

Another nail biter. The Sox are rarely out of a game with so much power in the line-up.

They would have been out of this one had Ozzie not taken their ACE out of the game when he did... they do indeed have power, but what happened to the pitching staff?

Life is good smile.gif, when the Sux get beat by anybody, and when the TWINS take two straight at their place....wow grin.gif

Here's my wish list: Twins stretch out the lead enough by the last series of the year so that series is a non-factor!

Great baseball for sure. I even like the "symbols" of this team better than the homer hanky days, too. Thank-you Ozzie!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I posted a bunch of stats bashing the Sox pitching months ago. We're in complete agreement on their unremarkable starting rotation Buzz. IMO, Windy is right about the bats keeping the Sox in this thing. He has made numerous predictions that they will run away with the division soon. That is a gross overstatement in my opinion, but I don't think they will fall out, even if there pitching remains the same. How many here can honestly state they don't get real nervous when most of the Sox line-up steps to the plate, late in a close game. About 7 of them can go yard on a good pitcher.

I'm becoming a bigger Twins fan everyday, so don't confuse this post with Twinkie Bashing. smile.gif

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff
