Twins - Sox series

31 posts in this topic

Does anyone know the major league record for runs scored in a 3 or 4 game series?? Its been 3 games so far and the Sox have scored 33 runs and knowing them they will have another double diget run total today against this horrid pitching staff we have had the last week.

The Sox have been just crushing the ball this series.

7-5 today, and a 4 game sweep.

A 6 1/2 game lead is pretty nice here in June. Hopefully, they continue to hit.

They blew a 15 game lead in 2005 so anything can happen.

And now 7 doh!! Oh well, its June, lets just hope they can pull out of this pitching funk. Bert was pretty fired up with how they have been pitching lately, maybe he should gives the Twinks a little advice from the outside.

Too wildly erratic of a club to have any faith in, and too talented of a team to give up on. It's one series. Rip off a nice streak and they could be right back in it. It's happened before to both clubs.

Very unlikely to happen again, but weren't we behind Detroit by about 14 games in 2006 at one point???

Yeah its all too early to tell. The twins likely will not do a thing this year because of the youth and inconsistencies. It should be a nice group in the years to come though.

Hello Boys,

Like Jack Nicholson in The Shining....I'm BACK!

Sorry to dissapoint so many of you Twinkie lovers but The Wind Meister and the Mrs. were on a short vacation to Washington DC. I had a VIP tour of the White House and The Capitol compliments of our State Senator Dick Durbin. We visited Senator Durbin in his office where his staff was having a pizza party with Barack Obama's staff, pretty wild. We met and took photos with Senator Durbin and there was even a movie star there. Kal Penn from Harold and Kumar go to White Castle was there with the Obama staff. We then went on a VIP tour of the Capitol where we got to see Senator Durbin introduce a bill in session on the rising gas prices. Pretty nice seats from the VIP gallery. Then we hung out with the Senator in his Majority Whip office, what a fantastic view from his office, great shot of the Washington Monument and he has an absolutly stunning painting of Abraham Lincoln in his office. All in all a nice little 5 day get away which was made even sweeter by my beloved sweeping those Twinks in a 4 game series.

So now I get back and find out that my boss is taking me to the Cubs game tomorrow as a reward for producing some record numbers last month. We have a skybox suite for our company and a few of our top guns will be attending, myself included in my Cutter and Buck 2005 World Series Championship White Sox golf shirt. I am warming up my Tomahawk Chop already to root on the Braves since I am a huge ABC fan...Anybody But The Cubs!

Oh well, got to run. Big day of baseball ahead tomorrow, GO BRAVES!

Windy...with all that hob-nobbing on political hill, you better watch it, or the boys from the "outdoors agenda" forum will be all over you. gringringrin

Now back to baseball. This year is all about "NFL" parity so far. How can the Sox wallop the Twins and lost to the Tigers??

dude,

I was thinking the same thing! They usually hand Verlander his hat by the 4th inning but he shut them down yesterday. I guess even a broken watch is right twice a day, right? LOL

I just found out that Kal Penn, the movie star that we met is currently in the TV series House as one of the new doctors. We watch that show all the time and did not realize that was who he was. He had this black head wrap kind of a du rag thing on so we really did not recognize him as the guy who plays Dr. Lawrence Kutner in the House series.

Limo to Wrigley, lunch at Bar Louie and then taking in the Cubbies. I didn't even mind that they won the game in extra innings. I got only got a few comments on my World Championship shirt, mostly good fun. I even found a few Sox fans at the game who gave me the thumbs up! Limo is definitly the way to get to Wrigley, that place is a zoo!

dude,

Been hitting Cass all week and had no time for baseball or posting...but to paraphrase our good buddy..."I'm Back".

Windy,

I would say you are a good luck charm for my Cubbies, but seeing as how they made it to the best record in MLB with you rooting against them, I'd rather you continue to deny the obvious. After all, I still root against your WSox and they too are in first.

Zoo? You are a novice!

That was weird, when I typed in the correct spelling of the poor boy sandwich, by leaving off the final o and r, the site said it was a poor word usage. When I typed in poor boy it was fine, kind of wierd, eh?

I was wondering if Geno caught some when he was up at Cass.

Just trying to be nice for a change and not hassle anybody like in the Cass Lake forum.

dude,

6 of us brought back 429 go-homers made up of 8 species.

We got 3 limits of crappie, 6 limits of gills, 5 limits of Rockies, 3 1/2 limits of walleye, 3 1/2 limits of LMB, and 3 limits of pike, but only 2 1/2 limits of perch --- and a single ugly bullhead.

I caught smallest pike, LMB, and Rockie in our group. Maybe next year I will get largest....but don't bet on me.

Sled,

Only to excess...nyuk,nyuk.

Many-a-trip has been saved by those Rockies being in a biting mood. I've got the rep on another board that Rockies are my "go-to" fish.

Been through this a thous x's on the board: they filet and eat just like gills to us but not as sweet - no funky taste at all.

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
