Twins - Sox series

87 posts in this topic

Probably the biggest series of the year, what is everyone prediction??

Looking at what the Sox are throwing at us all lefties and we all know how good the Twins hitters hit lefties I am going to say Sox take 3 of 4, hurts to say that.

They are one of three or four teams we struggle against. In Chi town we'd be lucky to take 1 of 4. At home I'm hoping we eek out 3 with the series win. Could split the series very easily though.

3 of the Chisox starters are lefties and 1 of them was just called up. So I see 2-3 wins for us. Tonites game is big. If we can beat Buehrle, which is tough for us, we will be sitting grand.

I was wrong, I thought Floyd was a lefty. All I know this is going to be a good series.

GO Twins! I don't know how I'm gonna watch both the Cubs and Twins at the same time tonight but I'm sure a good watering hole nearby will have more than one tv going.

Pretty sure this is his 2nd wk there. Saw a report that said he boated a 4 1/2 lb walter but don't have any other info. Good for him. I'm sure he will give us a nice, long "winded" report upon his return though. Sure would be nice to have him return in 2nd Pl, huh? Nyuk, nyuk.

2nd place with the Tigers breathing down their necks. I keep waiting for the Sox 2nd half slump they are known for. Maybe we can start that off this week.

Get Gardy tossed before the games start to prevent his indecisions, poor decisions and no decisions.

There is a real nice watering hole on the Turtle River between Cass and Kitchi (we have a group luncheon every year from another chatboard at Pike Hole). A beautiful view and bar with real good eats. I'll bet Windy will be tuned in there tonight while feasting on a big mushroom/swiss burger-at least until he has seen enough of the beginning of the slide........

Maybe he'll be having the garden salad with a side of rice cakes?

Sorry I even responded now as I know we all have better things to discuss than Windy's eating habits.....just as long as the Twins make him choke it down, I don't care what he eats. Nyuk, nyuk.

Maybe a bit harsh, even jokingly...I take it back and agree with Sled.

Hopefully we can split the series, if not win it. I'm still waiting to hear but I think I'm getting a free ticket to Thursdays game, which should at least be a good game to watch. I'm gonna say we take 3 out of 4, with the loss against Buerhle if he pitches well. Maybe we'll get lucky and get a chance to see Liriano pitch in the series....

Awesome outing by Slowey. One day he goes 9 IP, the next game he gives up 4-5 runs in 2 innings and gets pulled. Nice to see the 9IP Slowey tonight.

Let's gett'm again tomorrow Perkins!

It was a fun game to watch for a Twins fan! But its just not as fun when you cant rub it in to Windy! Although every time his team gets beat he goes into hiding for a few days. You know he was at some northwoods bar talking smack with some Twins fans before the game, then hid in the corner by the 5th inning grin

    •     I believe you said it was "libertarian" drivel, actually, so you dismissed it out of hand...          
    •   You posted about neither.     But if you would read the article, my commentary and TJ's commentary you would know that's not really what the article is about.     You have to be kidding, right? Just about everyone who has an opinion on politics at all is this sort of person. Do you look at social media at all?
    •     Ok, now getting back to whether Trump will win the War on Drugs, do you think he will take any steps at all to decriminalize drugs, such as reclassifying marijuana, and recognizing state laws and programs designed to move towards the decriminalization of drugs?   Or do you think he will take steps to protect vested interests, such as prisons and the pharmaceutical. industry?   Just going off his rhetoric and his choice for a drug czar, I'm guessing he much prefers the latter, and will end up spending a bunch of taxpayer's money, and actually lose ground by continuing on with the brute force/criminalization approach.        
    • Because at the time, I don't have anything better to do.   I posted about the article, and you wanted to talk about the topic.  I posted about the topic and you want to discuss the article.    Which is it?     I support a particular candidate because their positions, taken as a whole, are preferable to me as compared to the other candidate(s).   In a few years I get to do it over.     I don't think there are really that many ardent "rah rah for my party" type folks out there, in spite of what we see on TV, or the occasional people we meet.     So the article is basically drivel, as I said before, based on a false premise.   
    • Borch I just signed up Ryan, Morgan, and me but I only see my name listed in the summary. Do my kids not show up because they don't have hso usernames?  Or did I not enter it right?     Please let me know how to fix it and I'll do so.  Thanks!
    •   Because I think self reflection is good for all of us from time to time.   If you don't wan't to discuss this article, why do you persist in posting here?           No one is disputing that at all. The premise of the author's article is in regards to the hypocrisy of then justifying everything your chosen candidate or party does blindly while vilifying the other candidates or party. It's the "all in" sports like mentality that is being discussed here.  
    • There is a really excellent book called "The Righteous Mind" that approaches this tribalist mindset from an evolutionary psychology standpoint. The author, Jonathan Haidt, does a remarkable job of unpacking why people persist in truly irrational defense of the indefensible - when it's their team doing the stupid stuff. I highly highly highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in lessening the hyperpartisan idiocy we have today.

      The trouble is that the closed-off mindset that lends itself to reflexive support for Obama/Hillary/Trump/whomever also tends to preclude any serious engagement in self-examination that the book is designed to provoke. Really good read, though.
    •   I get what your saying here but I think what Dave is talking about is the willingness of some to blindly follow, without question, their party or candidate. I saw this first hand during the primary with some of my own relatives, for example. I had a SIL who was a huge Bernie backer. The things she said about Hillary were worse than anything said here. As far as she was concerned, Hillary should be tarred and feathered and ran out on a rail. Then Bernie loses the nomination. She then became Hillary's biggest defender. Everything she said about her during the primary was instantly washed away. Even her own husband called her out. She wasn't simply voting for her because she found Trump worse. That's understandable. She defended or at least tried to deflect the issues with Hillary when just a few months prior, she said things that would make even Cooter or Bill say, "man you're harsh on her."   I don't think this is a new phenomenon. I also don't think it's widespread. Like everything else, access to more and diverse information just makes it possible to hear more about it than before. I think human nature causes people to internalize candidates and/.or elected officials. It's a "if you're critical of my candidate, you're critical of me," kind of thinking.   I don't fault anyone for voting for a candidate that one feels best represents their line of thinking. Or even defending their candidate from detractors. I don't think that is what Dave is talking about here. It's also the flipping of political opinions just because the candidate you voted for or support is supporting certain positions. For example, many conservatives opposed BHO's stimulus, including myself. It didn't work  as promised and we just added more on to the debt. So on the campaign trail, Trump also spoke of a stimulus plan that was even more expensive than BHO's and  those same people not only supported it but are justifying it. In summary, one can vote for a candidate without defending everything that person does        
    •  Come on.   The world, life is a bit more complicated then that.          Quit passing the blame. Your whole thesis is on choice and owning it.   Let me guess, you hate big banking also since they made it easy to refinance and purchase.   It just proves that general society is incapable of making the right decisions as a whole.   Sorry, you go down with the ship.
