Even though he does strikeout a lot, he provides a much needed spark to a rather dull lineup

could be fun to watch?? he already is! when he gets on base, the guy is electric and is a difference maker on the base paths...

i understand he needs to cut down on the strikeouts, but he is only 22 and all that will come with time and more experience

First time since 1986 so its good to see!!!!! Biggest thing is we got or will soon get the W and hopefully can take the series finale tomorrow afternoon!

Punto also deserves some attention for having a great game and providing some clutch hitting as of late (Tonight with the key RBI's and on Sunday with some big hits to beat the Tigers!)

Ditto on Punto Jman! It sure is nice to see a good guy like him to get back on track a little a bit and provide a nice spark for the Twins, he deserves it!

He sure is fun to watch, he does need to cut down on his stikeouts, and be a little better at throwing, but the energy he brings is much needed. he will be fun to watch for years to come.

Congratuations to Gomez, Punto, and Hernandez, all 3 had a great game last night. Gomez sure makes the loss of Hunter easy to forget, and Hernandez has eased the loss of Johan as well. It also looks like we did good by not releasing Punto before giving him a second chance. This is a young team, and they are fun to watch now, and will be for years to come!

That was a joke of a cycle........his "double" with an error should have been a single with a 2 base error and his single should have been just an error by the SS.....regardless he is still a fun player to watch and if he keep progressing the sky the limit for him..........

His double was a double and got to 3rd on the error. His single was a little iffy but it was a cycle and cant take it away.

if the left fielder played his "double" correctly on one hop instead of a halfa$$ed dive attempt then he would have been held to a single........

Yeah, you can say it shouldn't be this and it shouldn't be that...but its scored how its scored.

Yesterday that unnassisted triple play shouldn't have been one either...why was the runner on first already around 2nd...if that baserunner would have held up he would have been safe.

Things are scored the way they scored and that's that.

But I guess now that a ball hit over the fence by a couple feet shouldn't be a home run?? Come on guys, give the kid some credit!

He got another Home run last night, looks like he is being a little more patient at the plate as well. By mid season he will have a .280 average and maybe 8-10 homers. You couldnt ask for much better then that from a rookie.

Yeah, I love to see GO-GO take some of these pitches...He is a totally different batter since he started with the twins. He use to just bunt and swing at anything and everything.

Now hes taking pitches and hitting the ball. His speed will always give him the option to bunt and I love seeing that he is learning how to become a hitter!

    • Youtube is the way to go. So many cool little self filmed fishing shows on there. Heck I have a channel myself where I record my fishing trips. Uncut angling is cool, I also like Peelindrag because he is out of Michigan like me. Screw those commercial filled, cheesy scripted fishing shows on tv. Times have changed in my opinion.
    • Krylon and Rustoleum both have aerosol primers for plastic.  
    • I had the fasteners they recommended but it still needs to be filled to prevent floating . I don't recall what spacing I used but was told later I did every thing correct except for the water .
    • I bought my first house almost exactly a year ago and am looking to put it in a garden which is kind of a new adventure for me. Since I don't have the best soil in my yard, I am thinking I am going to build some raised garden beds out of some 2x12s. I am looking for some suggestions on this. Is 12" of soil deep enough? Any do's or don'ts from people that have done this before?   I've never done a solo garden before, so I am kind of in uncharted territories. I want to make some salsa and possibly pasta sauce so what all should I grow? Tomatoes and peppers are on the list... what else?   I'm located in Duluth so temp/thaw wise, we are at least a week or 2 behind the metro still.

    • I think he just got triple owned, I just scored a ton of points in my imaginary troll game. YES!!!!  
    • I am making some bluebird houses out of PVC.  They need to be white.  I have painted some with Zinser primer but it doesn't adhere very well.  Any idea what I should do to get the paint to stick?   Thanks for your time.   Tom
    • I don't think Trump can do that much damage in 4 years, if he makes it that long.
    • Phony politicians of all stripes have reversed their position on the fence numerous times, since it is just a political football that is typically dropped once the election is over.     One of the obstacles is land ownership, and we are supposedly a nation of laws that stands for the right to own property.     In 2007, as the Bush administration was extending the fence, it sent letters to property owners threatening to sue them if they did not “voluntarily” hand over their rights to their land. The letters offered no compensation for the use of the land. Some intimidated property owners signed the letters thinking that they had no recourse. Others refused, and the governmentsued them for access. Although the government can—and did—attempt to use eminent domain to seize property from landowners, the lawsuits took years to complete (7 years in one case), causing substantial delays. DHS’s Inspector General (IG) concluded in 2009 that “acquiring non-federal property has delayed the completion of fence construction,” and that “CBP achieved [its] progress primarily in areas where environmental and real estate issues did not cause significant delay.” The IG report again: For example one landowner in New Mexico refused to allow CBP to acquire his land for the fence. The land ownership predated the Roosevelt easement that provides the federal government with a 60-foot border right-of-way. As a result, construction of fencing was delayed and a 1.2-mile gap in the fence existed for a time in this area. CBP later acquired this land through a negotiated settlement. The IG found more than 480 cases in which the federal government negotiated the “voluntary” sale of property, and up to 300 cases in which condemnation would be sought through the courts. Because the right of just compensation is protected by the Constitution, there is little Donald Trump or Congress can do to expedite these issues. A related issue is the impact on tribal lands. Although technically owned by the federal government, tribal lands are held in trust for Indian tribes, which federal law recognizes as distinct, independent, political entities. The Tohono O’odham Nation, which has land on both sides of the border, hasalready pledged to fight the Trump administration on building a wall there. In 2007, the tribe agreed to allow the construction of a vehicle barrier on their land, but the Bush administration then waived laws that protect tribal burial grounds, and during construction, human remains were dug up. If the tribe refuses to cooperate, the Trump administration would need a stand-alone bill from Congress condemning the land. Even on federal lands, it can take months to get various agencies to agree to allow Border Patrol to move forward on various projects. In 2010, two-thirds of patrol agents-in-charge told the Government Accountability Office that under land management laws, the interagency compliance process had delayed or limited access to portions of some federal lands. Some 54 percent said that they were unable to obtain responses to requests for permission to use the lands in a timely manner. In one case, it took nearly 8 months for Border Patrol to get permission to install a single underground sensor. Only 15 percent, however, said that these issues adversely impacted the overall security in their areas.
