Twinks pretty much having their way with them. This can be a pretty good team and fun to watch this year.

Glenn, put the game on the radio 830 WCCO.

I dropped Dish 2 years ago cuz the Vikes games weren't on.  And the Twins.  I told the cable guys I needed it before the next Vikes game and they got me all hooked up.  Never looked back.

About the same as Dish.  Who cares what it costs???  Way too much.  In less than a week you can watch Twins games.

We dropped Direct TV down home ~ a year ago too. We kept losin channels & they kept wanting more $ :bs:, went to Mediacom instead. Bundled everything with them for about $50 a month < than what Direct wanted. Everything up here is Paul Bunyan & again that isn't that much more than just what Direct wanted down home. Wireless wi-fi & double the cable boxes up here too.

I get everything through Midco. Internet & cable is $154.00 a month. Seems expensive but as long as they don't mess with my sports I'm ok with it.

:happy1: Got that right Bobber, he's been knockin the cover off the ball. Arraez been on a tear as well. The new leftfielder, Garlick, who just been playin against lefties so far is playing pretty good too. Good to see Garver shake off last season as well.

When Kiriloff gets brought up they should sit Sano and put Kiriloff at first. I've about seen enough of his hot & cold hitting act.  :evil:

I know... Let's waive Sano and let the Red Sox pick him up and turn him into a Hall of Famer.  :bonk:

Steroids turned him into the hitter he became. Hall of Famer? I'm not there yet.

Sano might become something or he might be another Rob Deer, if you remember him. You have to be able to touch the baseball with the bat once in a while.

They signed him at 16, he's now 27, I doubt he's going anywhere. He leaves Cruz is probably gone too, both are from the Dominican Republic & are close friends. I heard that Sano is 1 of the main reasons they signed Cruz. But I hear what your sayin db, he has looked terrible at the plate so far this season. :pouty:

He led the majors last year striking out 40% of the time. He is a classic all or nothing guy.

There are many who really only have 3 options, BB, K, or HR, when they go to the plate in MLB right now. That how the game is these days, many are making quite a bit more than he is too..

Sure hope the Twins can figure out how to win an extra inning game this year. I was optimistic about the new extra inning rule with starting a runner on second, but so far we can't figure out how to score that runner or stop the opposing team from scoring theirs.

Gave yday's away in regulation. :pouty: Let the starter, Shoemaker, pitch to a couple guys too many & the new closer didn't have it at the end either. They were ahead 6-0 after 5! :doah:

They thought they needed it in order to be able to have a season last year. With no minor league play they had only the players from the alternate sites that they could bring up. Long games, 12-15 + innings, usually means more injuries & more roster moves along with CV-19 they were tested with being able to play all their games.  A few teams didn't even play all 60. I didn't really care for it last year but if that was the only way we had baseball it was OK. Kind of like it now, just wish the Twins were better at it.

I missed the game where Austodilla sp.  pitched.  I found it on Youtube and it is great!  His fast ball was 46 mph I think.  He threw 7 pitches to get 3 guys out.  Looks like a slow pitch softball game.  He even shrugged his shoulders a couple of times and looked back at the fielders.  LOL  My buddy told me that he is great in the club house and his nickname is La Tortuga or something like that.  It means the Turtle.  Don't know if I can copy and paste from there or not.
