Twins- Kansas City thread!!

62 posts in this topic

As big as the previous series was against the White Sox,that just made the series against the Royals that much bigger. The Twins need to come out and win tonight, just to keep the pressure on Chicago, I am afraid if we let the Sox back on top, we wont regain the top spot! We need a win tonight.

Go Twins!

The Franchise tonite.

We will certainly need 2 games for sure. We don't want to go to the South Side for a play in game! Chicago might not have looked great in the dome, but they'll win at least two out of the next four. If they take three of four, we need all three KC victories to avoid that play in game.

I'll be there on Saturday! First game for our second child, who's 1 1/2.

Well good luck with that. Maybe that is where Windy is. Hiding in KC. The game should be on TV down there. They do have TV down there, dont they.

I will be watching tomorrows game down there on TV, well if they have them down there! But tonight will be a long boring road trip through the exciting state of Iowa during the game tonight. Then I will need to watch the game from my cell phone Sunday, and the Vikes.

The starting pitching is set up nicely against the Royals. Hope they are not sufferng from a hangover from the high of the sweep.

I think the Twins will get swept and the White sox will get swept and the Twins will win the division.... then the Twins will go and not lose another game during the playoffs and world series. YES!!!!

4Wandering- I used to live there, make sure you get to Oklahoma Joes or Jack Stack for the best BBQ on the planet!! Jack Stack makes the best baked beans and the cheesy cornbake is to die for, and OK Joes makes the best pulled pork I have ever had.

Grienke has been shut down for the season, he pitched a ton of pitches in his last outing and the Royals decided he was through for the season so he doesn't hurt his arm. So we won't have to face him. I would love to have him in a Twins uniform, he has amazing stuff.

There are 4 or 5 Jack Stacks, and now there are 2 Oklahoma Joes. The original OK Joes is in a gas station not far from Westport, and the new one is on Metcalf if I remember right. Jack Stack has a carryout only lunch and dinner menu that we used to get at work all the time. 2 sides with the BBQ, I used to get their BBQ chicken with the cheesy corn bake and those baked beans. If you do a yahoo search, they both have websites, jot down their phone numbers and give 'em a call while you are down there.

I just said it that way so it would hurt the White Sox fans worse. We will win atleast 2 of 3.... the White sox will lose 2 of 3 and thats all she wrote as Detroit won't have to play them !

Tonight:

KAN: Davies (8-7, 4.21 ERA)

MIN: Liriano (6-3, 3.39 ERA)

Advantage: Twins

CLE: Lewis (3-0, 1.42 ERA)

CHW: Danks (11-8, 3.20 ERA)

Advantage: Sox. Danks is solid and Lewis is still a bit unproven.

Saturday:

KAN: Meche (13-11, 4.05 ERA)

MIN: Perkins (12-4, 4.50 ERA)

Sorry…advantage KC. This is not a good matchup for the Twins the way Perkins is pitching.

CLE: Jackson (1-3, 5.96 ERA)

CHW: Vazquez (12-15, 4.46 ERA)

Advantage: Sox

Sunday:

CLE: Lee (22-3, 2.54 ERA)

CHW: Buehrle (14-12, 3.87 ERA)

Advantage: Tribe, but not by much. Assuming Lee pitches.

KAN: Duckworth (3-2, 5.06 ERA)

MIN: Baker (10-4, 3.59 ERA)

Advantage: Twins

Does anyone know what the Twins record is when they play day games? We need to win on Sat. and Sun. but it seems every time I listen to a day game they don't play well. I don't believe the players like to get up before 11 am.

    • Never underestimate what a pussycat in her prime can bring down.      
    • 1.23.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye!   On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too!   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head.   This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report.   We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
    • I think the good news is we haven't look great lately but are still putting up wins, nothing wrong with that. Preds have been playing well lately and we were back to back so not going to get too concerned over that loss. Heck Kuemper even looked decent last night. CM Haula and Pommers have looked a little better lately. I am starting to hope Parise is still injured or something, he kind of looks like he is doing everything as usual but just can't get anything going. If this is him aging we are in trouble, lots of years left on that contract. Maybe just a bad season or fighting the puck I just don't know but something is off with him. The good news is we don't need a lot of out of him right now, just a little bit of elevated play and every now and then contributing on the score sheet. Granlund and Zucker have been just crazy good, even without Koivu last night they were our best line, always dangerous.
    • Over last week I left my generator in my fishouse and didn't shut off the propane.  My CO detector alarmed.   When I opened the door to clear it out I could smell a difference.  It didn't smell like either gas or propane - just different.   It only took a few minutes to clear the alarm but I'm not leaving the generator in there anymore and making sure I turn off the propane.  I usually do that but didn't get it done this last time.  The furnace was shut off like usual though.
    • I am looking at the HT Ice Blue and HT Ice Blue Pro rods.  Is there really a difference?  Which one is the better buy?
    • I've owned both the Nils 6 inch Trekker and the Kdrill 6 inch.   In my "opinion", I like the Nils over the Kdrill.   Nils has less torque when drilling, you get more holes per battery, it is faster then Kdrill,  the NIl's material is better to handle thick ice,  you could use it as a hand drill if you run out of battery, and if you get the Trekker model you can make it different lengths.   Kdrill's advantage is it is lighter and you can reopen holes since it is a chipper style blade. I don't open old holes so I sold my Kdrill. 
    • It's already happened....  
    • So what is the Leech Lake Blood Bath Days???
    • Thanks guys for the quick ID response !  It's still hanging around this morning! Maybe another result of climate change?
    • Interesting. Have never seen one around our place in the winter,  although it is surprising sometimes how many birds seem to stay very late into the winter.
