2019 twins
« on: July 06, 2019, 04:36:24 PM »
Man there fun to watch this year. There never out of it and even if there down a guy feels they can come back.

That Rogers sure is fun to watch pitch.

On a side note, I am definitely a bandwagon guy. :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

They've already hit as many homers this year then they did all last year. They better start working on a lot of contract extension.

They have always been my team, even in the bad times, and I wear one of my Twins shirts win or lose.

Same here GT, no bandwagon guy here. No shirts though! ;) :smiley: They had a little mini slump on the last road trip but are back playin like they did in May & most of June since they started the Texas series. Thought :scratch: I heard Bremer say that they hadn't won a series in Oakland in 8 though, years while  they were playin them.

Still have two of the '87 Twins Wheaties boxes, two of the '91 Wheaties boxes, and the '91 Frosted Flakes ones with Tony the Tiger dressed as a Twin. Also the old TC hats, and the '87 and '91 champ hats. Should get rid of a few of those; don't need all of 'em.

My buddy Blue is a big fan.  He finally got me watching this year.  The wife and I are both enjoying it.  I think being retired makes it easier to watch them too.  Game at about 1 today too.  May have to smoke something whilst we watch.

Lifelong Twins fan, not a bandwagon guy but sometimes a closet fan when the times were lean. At least I've always hated the Yankees!  :rotflmao:

I come from a family of dedicated Twins fans. My parents, my grandparents, and even my great grandparents on my moms side have been Twins fans!

We've endured lots of bad years, great to see them playing so well this year. We were up at the cabin over the 4th and watched them play (on TV) both Thurs & Friday.

Go Twins!!

Bump! Just wonderin :scratch: who else watched this last :crazy: series against them damn Yankees. :pouty: They score 27 runs in 3 games & only win 1.  :doah: Might've won another game or 2 if they'd just walked that Gregorius guy. :tut: :bonk: He was 8 for 10 with 10 RBI's & he only played the last 2. :bow: Hope they take it out on the White Sox tonight.

The wife and I started watching more this year.  I was impressed we beat the Yankees the first game.  Then thought we had won the second one so went to bed.  Woke to see they beat us.  Darn..  Damn those Yankees.   LOL

Got to agree, Steve-o, but I'm not so sure that the teams they played the last couple of series didn't have quite a bit to do with it. Both teams are among the leaders in the league on striking out the least. Not sure what the hell happened with the Mets. :confused:

In my very limited Twins watching I like of like that young pitcher Rodgers.  Don't know if he is really very good though.

Yes, part of it is good hitting opponents, but we're also not seeing the best out of our pitchers lately.  We keep hoping they'll revert back to the performances they had early on.

I do hope they make moves to add both starters and relievers, and not so much supposedly for the raw upgrade in talent, but rather to send a message to the pitching staff that the cavalry has arrived.  Maybe they will all loosen up a bit and pitch better.

Me too!! :happy1: He's got a good fastball & a wicked curve when he's on, besides he's a lefty. It's very hard to have too many good lefthanded pitchers in the bullpen. 'Bout the only 1 they could really count on to close games for most of the last month. :cool:

You're spot on & I couldn't agree more about them signing some help for the starters & bullpen before the end of the month. For the last 4 or 5 starts Perez & Pineda have looked better to me than Odorizzi & Berrios. :scratch:  :pouty: At least more consistent

Just what the Dr ordered last night, 7 from Berrios & only the 1 guy in relief. :cool: The bats were still hot too. :happy1: Still had 1 inning where they kicked it around some & they need to get that out of their system. Glad to see Buxton back too.

10-3 Cruz had 3 HR's on his 1st 3 swings, Keplar & Sano had 1 a pc too. It was their 9th game with 5 HR's & that's a MLB record. :cool: Poppen, just up from AAA , looked good in relief & I think we might see him again before the seasons over. :happybounce:
