Just about anyone from St Paul can hit .147. And not strike out 3 out of 4 at bats.

 :huh: I thought Correa was just starting to hit in the last week again. In fact, he's been in 3 games in the last week & he's 4 for 11. :confused: Buxton, on the other hand, is just 4 for 21 in the last 7 days in which he's played 5 times. Buxton leads in K's too, 7 to 2, :pouty: but he did get a hit in his final at bat yday & sometimes that's all it takes.  :crazy:

It's a moot point. As long as both are healthy they play. You can argue that they should bat in different places in the order but you can't argue they stay in the lineup. Both are capable of 4-4, 2 homerun, 5 rbi days plus they are gold glove fielders. There is nobody like that in St. Paul.

Royce Lewis will be there shorty. He can outhit Correa. DH isn't difficult to fill.

Anybody who thinks that Royce Lewis at this point in his career is better than Correa is drinking the Kool-Aid. Lewis had a good audition but he hasn't proven squat yet. You can see Miranda at triple A.

Drinking the Kool Aid can be applied to letting Buxton and Correa hit under 200 with runners in scoring position. I guess we will see about Lewis and if their top 2 paid players start doing their jobs.

"The Minnesota Twins have a big decision coming as top prospect Royce Lewis is eligible to return from his rehab assignment Tomorrow.

Lewis is trying to make that decision an easy one as he launched another home run for the St. Paul Saints during a 14-1 win over Omaha on Saturday night."

Another shutout.....As I said.....Buxton again 0 for 4 and 3 more strikeouts. Same old. Same old. :thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs:

Even the people in the stands were booing him after the third strikeout. I would be to. In fact I will have a chance. My family is going to the Twins/Cleveland game next Saturday. Will be my first time time at Target Field. Hope this hitting slump is over by then. :tut: :tut:

Just think how happy you and your family would be to shell out the big bucks for tickets to have Buxton & Correa both sitting.

Doesn't matter who is on the field if they win. Especially against Cleveland.

Lewis and Keplar both activated today.

Somehow the Twins manage to hold their two game lead.  Lewis and Jeffers picked them up yesterday.  Correa, not so much.  :thumbs:  0-for-5, BB, 2 K

Jorge Polanco has been activated from the injured list and the Twins have optioned infielder Edouard Julien back to Triple-A St. Paul.

Good game last night; scored 8 runs without Buxton and Correa in the lineup.   :scratch:

Varland was great, but it got a little dicey when Lopez gave up to solo homers and put two more men on base with no outs.   :doah:  However Stewart came in and struck out the side.   :happy1:

And that was all she wrote.   :Clap:

So just like the other night.  A pitcher comes in and gets 3 outs.  Then they take him out and let another guy pitch to 2 3 or 4 guys and put another guy in even if that pitcher did well.  I don't understand that yet as a fairly new Twins fan.  Leave him in if he is pitching well.   ?????

By rule each pitcher must face at least 3 batters. Rocco has a really quick hook and rarely lets a pitcher go more than 1 inning.

I can't say I disagree with Rocco when good relievers are hurt and others are not reliable in high leverage situations.  If they can get one full inning out of some of those guys without surrendering the lead, its a win for them.

The Minnesota Twins, Arizona Diamondbacks, Cleveland Guardians and Texas Rangers have won their case against Diamond Sports Group in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, with the judge ruling in their favor to receive full payment for the 2023 season as is directed in the previously agreed-upon contracts.

Twins President Dave St. Peter revealed during testimony that Diamond inherited a 12-year contract that previous owner Fox Sports had agreed to with the Twins. That contract ends at the end of this MLB season, which meant contract extension negotiations have been held exclusively between Diamond and the Twins from March 2022 to the end of April 2023.

Earlier this week, Diamond relinquished telecasts rights to the San Diego Padres and Major League Baseball immediately stepped in began broadcasting Padres games the next day.

:scratch: Much more than about 20, maybe 25 pitches, & they're usually unavailable to pitch again for 2 days the way the game is played today. Most teams don't have that kind of depth in the bullpen to be able to get away with that too much & win.  :rolleyes:

Have a good time at the game, Ken.  Twins staring pitching gives fans a legit reason to go out to the ballpark and expect a good show.

 According to the injury report(ESPN), Buxton likely to miss mutiple games but Correa is listed as day-to-day. :scratch:

Cleveland hits only it's 34th & 35th HR of the season :rolleyes:, including the 1st 1 given up by Gray all season for a 4-2 win. Ryan gets the ball today, 1:10 1st pitch.

Gray was not good yesterday. He gave up 10 hits in his 6 innings. If the Cleveland team wasn't such a bad hitting squad they would have pounded him.

Cleveland will remain the team to beat in this division because they have Franconia and he will get them squared away to make a run. Twins will regret not beating these guys up when they had the chance.

Up to Ryan to right the ship.

I like Francona too, they left 11 on base & were 0-8 w/RISP. :scratch: Hard to win very often like that.
