Official Twins Road trip Game Thread.

228 posts in this topic

Post all Rants, concerns, and Frustrations regarding the Twins longest road trip "14 days" in 40 years!

Personally If the Twins are within 3 games of the Central lead after this trip I'll be pretty happy.

Tonights match up versus Tori Hunter and the Angles.

Lackey (10-2, 3.22 ERA) vs Scott Baker (7-3, 3.91)

Go Twins!

The real season starts now...Lots of scoreboard watching.

3 game sounds reasonable to me...To bad these are night games out in LA. I hate west coast game. An old guy like me needs his sleep. grin

Were gonna win Twins!!!! etc.

Hopefully they can win at least one Angel game and win the series with the Mariners, Oakland, and Toronto. My prediction is a 7/7 split being a game or two out of first at the end of it all. I think we'll have a good idea if they can win the division on how well they handle this road trip. Time for the Twins to turn it on.

The White Sox are going to need to help us out over the next few weeks. They are just too hot right now.

The twins aren't too shabby lately either, The darn homers the sox are hitting are unbelievable. Must be nice to have a $120 Million dollar payroll. It's going to be a good seriese with the Angels.

And what is the Angels payroll? And the BoSox? And the Yankees? Dollars don't always mean wins, though it ain't my money they are spending so I say, sign em all!

White Sux still have a 10 game losing streak to go through yet this season. Twins will be fine.

I can see the Twins sneaking two from LAA, two in Seattle, two in Oakland (maybe three), and two in Toronto. That's 8-6 in the next two weeks.

Chicago might get one with Tampa Bay, three with Baltimore, one with Boston, and three with Cleveland in the same time period. They do have nine of the next twelve on the road. So, they could go 8-4.

If my North Dakota math serves me that would make the Twins behind by 3 games due to the fact the the Sox play two fewer games in the same time period.

Optomistic? Yep, that's what fans are supposed to be.

This will be a big test for the twins if they can come off this road trip with better then half the games won they will be in great shape for the final 4 weeks and yes i think they could go 10-4 out west.

I'm hoping for a 9-5 road trip from the twins. The whitesoxs always struggle in the month of September. Weather gets colder and the balls stay in the park.

It's do or die time. Let's hope they do it! It may be a stretch, but I too think they could go 10-4. Let's hope I don't eat those words!

GO TWINS!!!

You guys sure are a lot more optimistic then I am.

I would take 7-7 for sure which would be better then our sub .500 road record we have this season!

Ya it was a good game, thanks to Punto, the most underated infielder in MLB! grin

Punto had a great night. If our boys would quit swinging at pitches in their eyes (Young) or looking at third stike pitches over the heart of the plate (Harris, Morneau) we may just go 8-6 on this trip.

The Sox have a long history of a late season dive and should start this any day now.

Twins up by a game when we get back to the Dome 9/4.

Go Twins!

Well the Sox havent been showing any weakness lately! So they better hurry and take this dive quick.

I think if the Twins are going to win the division, they are going to have to work for it this year.
