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.

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
