Way to go Twins!

This is why this team is going to [PoorWordUsage] us all off this year! They beat Boston 3 out of 4, should be on a roll and get a break facing a ice-cold team in Toronto. What do you know? We're getting it handed to us! This is going to be a tough year with these ridiculous ups and downs.

Maybe so. But our fundamentals have been off this game, and our pitching staff should not be giving in to an ice cold offense.

This is a young team, stuff like this will happen! Just remember we are in first place! Look back a few months hardly anyone thought this team would be even a contender, here they are in first place and they are still complaining shocked . Give them a break! They are 38 games into the season and like 3 or 4 games back from having the best record in MLB.

Well, Brendon Harris, Michael Cuddyer and Adam Everett are not young players and they should not be making mental errors. I have no problem with gomez airmailing it into the dugout...not sure how a center fielder can do that but...hes young.

Harris has to turn that double play, everett has to come up with a better throw home, and cuddyer must make that catch that went off his glove.

It is a young team and an enjoyable one...but no one wants to see the veterans on the team making errors on the field. Hopefully they can continue to stay in the race and their pitching continues to keep them in games.

We are in first place and hopefully we can remain there...

Everett's cut off throw to home was the weakest throw Ive ever seen in the history of baseball. He should be demoted to little league.

I think tonight's game has been much more frustrating. We have made a couple huge mistakes on the basepaths. I know that Gomez and Young are only 22, but they pulled a couple of bonehead moves tonight. Boof also was frustrating. But, I guess you gotta take the bad with the good with a young team like this...

I guess after Gomez threw that ball in the dugout Gardy asked him to sign the ball for him. The Twins are satisfying me this year so far. They are doing better than what i thought they were going to do. I am just enjoying watching these young guys develope into a great team. Give it a a year or 2 then start complaining.

I think fishinphilth is right on...this is a young team, and you will see inconsistency like this with a young team - particularly young starting pitching.

There will be a lot of rough patches as the team develops, but there will also be some good streaks when these young players show what they are capable of.

Patience this year...and if all goes according to plan, this team should be a contender next year and in the new ballpark year of 2010.

Anyway, I am off to the Black Hills and then on to Denver for a little vacation...Twins vs Rockies at Coors Field this weekend...

Yeah, the twins are young...that argument will get old for sure if they continue to make these blunders...

What the heck was Boof doing on that throw to third!

typical MN team. Play to the level of the opponent. We either rise up to play a great gameagainst a great team or stoop down to the level of a lesser team. Vikes, Twins, Wild no matter.

Just sit back and enjoy that is why they are there, for us to enjoy the game.

That wasn't boof's throw to 3rd, it was Jesse Crain...

They are young and it is still early in the season. Don't get your panties in a bunch until the all-star break

Kubel blowing that stop sign was terrible!

I agree with you guys on being patient with this team. There will definately be some growing pains this season. This young team will excite you and frustrate you throughout the year. If we can keep this team together for a couple years, I think we can seriously contend. Look how far they are coming already, I mean many "experts" had them last in the AL Central with NO chance of contending.

    • Looks like the rust belt should of went with a better rustproofing package.........     Donald Trump may have positioned himself as the champion of American workers but Republicans on the Hill are already embracing his “do as I say, not as I do” modus operandi. Under the backing of Paul Ryan, the GOP leadership stripped a provision from a water bill Monday that would have required American-made iron and steel products to be used in infrastructure projects in Flint and elsewhere funded by the Safe Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF). Democratic Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown blasted Republicans, who removed the “Buy America” provision (which passed the Senate with strong bipartisan support) while the House and Senate were reconciling the bills. In other words, GOP leadership scrapped it behind closed doors. “By stripping meaningful Buy America rules from the water infrastructure bill, Washington leadership is choosing China and Russia over Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin,” said Brown. “This was the first major test of whether Washington establishment Republicans would live up to President-elect Trump’s promises to put American products and American workers first – they failed, and American iron and steel workers will pay the price.” Now, Brown is teaming up with Democratic Sens. Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin and Bob Casey of Pennsylvania to insert the provision back in the bill. They want to reattach the provision to a nearly $12 billion Water Resource Development Act (WRDA), which authorizes dozens of infrastructure projects around the country and is on track to pass the House this week. “I’m not giving up on this fight,” Baldwin said in a telephone interview Tuesday. “Why would we pass a bill that only benefits Russian and Chinese steel corporations when we could be providing certainty to American manufacturers of steel and iron?” That sentiment was shared by some steel worker groups earlier this week: “From our end it’s a little baffling,” said Roy Houseman, a legislative representative for the United Steelworkers. “It’s been a program that’s been really successful, and it has bipartisan support. We’re just very confused by the Speaker, who’s not listening to the rest of his caucus.” In essence, “Buy America” sounds as nice to Republicans as it did to Trump, but in practice they would rather preserve the "Buy Chinese" option that Trump uses to build his skyscrapers.
    • If there are any twins fans left, I wonder if these new young bucks running the club have asked mauer if he would lift his no trade clause?  I think we know the answer.  I find it interesting to watch these winter meetings trades etc but we are never involved.  It seems like we are missing something as fans.
    • Sorry BD2 --I think the trout is the most dependent on everything Now the king of conservatism is a-----------------------carp   This could get interesting!
    • Sorry but the Walleye is the most Liberal fish in Minnesota. In most lakes it depends solely on the government and taxpayers of the state for it's very survival and proliferation. Lot's of other fish breeds are able to take care of themselves without help from the Government, those are the conservative fish. 
    • They make a variety of suits to suit your fishing style really. If you are a run and gun style fisherman, or if you're a guy that sits in the fish house all day they, and most brands nowadays have one that will suit your needs. I'm more hot blooded so when they first came out I ordered the Lite suit, a little less insulation but just as durable. It has been discontinued but it I think it was replaced with the Predator suit. 
    • Nah....walleyes would be hard-line Republicans;  conservative with little or no imagination, terrified of doing something new or different or pushing ahead with anything not tried before. Show me a 6-pound walleye and I'll show you Barry Goldwater with scales  or Ronald Reagan when he was not napping. PF is right, catching a walleye,  even a nice big fat one, is about as exciting as a naked tussle with Rosie O'Donnell or dragging a bag of seaweed into your boat. We used to catch some really big ones in MT and after a bit we learned that the big perch fought better and were way more tasty!  No kidding, those perch....12-15" were way better eating.  But then we were catching them from cold clear water. But if you are really new to fishing and don't possess a lot of skill by all means become a walleye fisherman-anybody can do it.
    • Well it's "Throw Down" time! For years I have kept a bag of sunflower seeds in the cup holder of my SUV to nibble on as I ride along. In the last few weeks since about the last weekend up north Deer hunting I would come in and think, man I really down some seeds, that was a pretty new bag? Then checking my oil one day noticed some empties under the hood!  Um, someone's having a party? Went to pick up my Deer at the butcher today and again found the new bag almost empty! Checked back seat floor and found a few sprinkles on the floor! That's it, don't mind the little guy along for a ride but don't touch my seeds! Thought about setting up the trail cam to plan some strategy, but just went with the blind two trap set front and back seat floor. Report when I get some results!
    • Read it again grasshopper, I never said any such thing.     Pence LOST jobs, Johnson gained jobs and the money didn't come out of revenue that was already being produced. Johnson's money came out of NEW tax revenue that would have never been earned if they didn't do the deal.   I don't know what that quote is you posted but I never said any of that.
    • Catching a walleye is about as exciting as reeling in a bath towel. Not sure how that justifies being an elitist. Bullheads put up a better fight.    I always considered walleyes to be the liberals of the fish world.
