TWINS take 3 of 4 from Boston!!!!!!

9 posts in this topic

Well after watching them just win 3 of 4 from BOSTON its pretty easy to feel good about the Twins and how they're playing right now.

Of course the rest of the division is playing pretty well and its a very close race 1 1/2 months into the season. We have Toronto at home for 3 than go in to play the NL Champion Colorado Rockies before hosting a 4 game home stand vs. Texas.

Hopefully we can open up a little bit of a gap in the division before facing Det and Kansas later this month!

Colorado might be the reigning NL Champs, but are absolutely horrid this season. Texas is as well, only thing TX has going for them is a somewhat weak (compared to Central and East) division. The Twins are winning games like they have when they have won the Central, by pieceing runs together one hit or one double at a time. They are reminding me so far of the second half Twins from 2 seasons ago- gritty and can never be counted out until the last out

Don't forget that the Twins lost 2 of 3 last time they played Texas. I know that they are playing better now, but you can never overlook a team.

This team is definately looking like a team that made the playoffs a couple years back. Everyone is picking each other up and no single guy is carrying this team. I hope we can continue to have the bats rolling and maybe Mauer will smack out a HR (I am not complaining!) and Young will start hitting some extra base hits!

They are looking better and better everyday. I think alot of it has to do with everyone getting comfortable with one another. There is alot of different faces on that team, and with more time and effort, there only going to get better. Glad to see there having some success. Hopefully they can carry it to the playoffs.

Biggest thing is they are ALL hitting right now. Great % with runners on base. Not just the big bats, everyone! Love to see that.

And how about the bullpen? They have been awesome the last week. Nathan made it interesting Sunday night but got the job done none the less. Losing Neshek is gonna hurt, but it looks like Rincon and Crain are stepping up nicely.

Bucky wasn't throwing his heater enough. The Twins were waiting on the slow stuff (only thing Monroe can hit) and that was that.

Easy now...The central isn't a tough division as of yet this year.

YET being the key word. The Indians are starting to come around and I will not count out the Tigers until they are mathematically eliminated.

    • I know I didn't pay $28 each for the trolley. Maybe half that. On the lake so I can't look up where I got them right this second.    Menards has the strut channel and a bunch of accessories. 
    • Strut is $15 per 10' at Menards. I've bought the trolleys from Mcmaster Carr before. Looks like they are $25 each on there for the doubles.
    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
