The homerun derby that is the 2019 twins season continued lastnight! Holy cow is this team fun to watch! First time in MLB history a team had multiple 5 homerun games before June 1st.

It will be interesting once Sano returns, hopefully he can put the bat on the ball like the rest of the team.

 

This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.

I'm pumped that they are doing so well.  I actually enjoy watching the games and have already been to a game at the ballpark.  I might try to go to a few more.

They sure had the long ball working again yesterday with 8 HR's. They hit .326, had 37 extra base hits, & outscored the opponents 67-27 on the road trip.👍

anybody miss Dozier or Escobar? lol

 

been a fun ride so far. Its going to be hard to sustain this pace and keep winning like this but I hope they can keep it up.

I still miss Eduardo Nunez ☺️

 

I was expecting this team to be better this year, but not to have their best 50 game start in team history! I certainly didn’t expect them to have the 2nd highest homerun total in MLB history! Where is this power coming from all of a sudden?

 

Last year I thought it was an absolute crime that Tampa Bay’s Kevin Cash didn’t win manager of the year. If things keep on going with the twins, then Baldelli should be the unanimous choice! If not, I will boycott MLB...which is an empty threat, because I know darn well I’ll be back to watching baseball the next season.

Tough stretch of games coming up, have to see how they do. Perez starting tonight, TB for 4 after that, then the Indians for 3

Some 23 year old lefty that they got from LA in the Dozier trade pitched 6 strong innings last night.

Another good effort from Gibson in the win against TB yeterday, going for 3 in a row today with Odorizzi. Gonzales & Buxton were the heroes with the bats.👍

I've seen the power rankings and I think the Twins have been right around 4th almost every week.  I'm not sure what sort of metrics they are using to formulate those rankings but I suspect its has more to do with size of market and star power than anything.  Win percentage and run differential don't seem to be a factor like you think it would. Either way it really doesn't matter.  

 

Twins could easily have 12.5-14.5 game lead on the division by the weekend.

Right now its so easy to look far ahead to the end of the season. At this point I just hope they don't end up like the 2001 Mariners.

 

Week after week I keep saying they cant sustain this pace they are playing at but they just keep on winning. 

 

The Kimbrel and Keuchel additions are intriguing for sure. On one hand I say go for it, but on the other hand if they haven't been picked up yet they maybe they are not worth the asking prices. I would prefer if either sign with the Twins they do a pro-rated deal for this season instead of a big money multi-year contracts.

I think we all keep expecting and waiting for the drop off.  They are playing dang near .700 ball and we all know that they probably won't keep that up.  

 

I do like the idea of making the additions of Kimbrel and Keuchel but it depends on the deal.  A one year prorated deal makes sense for the team but will either of them want to do that and go back into the off season as free agents again?  Maybe the Twins would be willing to overpay for a 1 year deal. I think that might make the most sense.  You might overpay this year but it allows you to beef up your pitching staff without losing any assets in a trade and it doesn't hurt your ability to sign players next year.

The rookie only gave up 5 hits but 4 were homers.  Lindor had 2 for the Tribe & that was pretty much the game. Rosario & Gonzales were the only ones who did much for the Twins.

    • Walked the Inner Harbor a bit, ate soft shell crab and took in an Oriole’s game at Camden Yards today.  Oh, and finally booked a SHORT trip on Erie to catch on the ride home.  Better than nothing.   White water rafting tomorrow will have to do for my most significant Maryland experience.  This put a little chill on me when I noticed what it was.     It’s a nice place to visit, but... you know the  rest.
    • Tried my hand at making Nashville hot chicken last night. It didn't turn out exactly like I expected but it was still good.  
    • Great fish @Lals!   You sound like we did on the way home from our trip - analyzing every fish we didn’t hook up or keep hooked after they bit.  I didn’t get any joy from a Top Raider either but live chucking them.   Thanks for the report!
    • Just came back from LOTW.  Numbers were down but not bites.  I was a miserable 6 for 15 fish on. 75% of the bites came on the figure 8, I mostly tried to set back into them and they would come "unbuttoned " pretty quickly.  Next year, I will  try pulling them around or if they bite up in the corner of my figure 8, I would then pull the rod straight back trying to set it in the corner of their mouth.   Smaller bucktails got the most bites.  Cranks did pretty well too -- 7" Slammers and Crane Bait.  One friend got a 48 on a Top Raider. I had a 4 -5 large fish follow a top raider or a jackpot but none bit.  My brother got a 50" on a Mepps Musky Marabou.  
    • The problem with fishing walleye below 35' is that whatever you catch you best be planning to keep. Bringing them out of that depth will kill them for sure no matter how slowly it is done.

    • I had this exact model for many years and it even ran for several years after my wife ran straight gas in it and seized it up one day when I wasn't home. After it cooled down and I replaced the gas in the tank with mixed fuel, it started right up but always had a knock after that.
    • I came through Pennsylvania to get here at least and there isn’t a Maryland forum so here goes:   I have a couple extra days later this week and a car to go wherever.  I’ve been looking for a guide or charter to get on the water but am having more trouble than expected.  The Chesapeake Bay charters for stripers run up to 6 in a group but don’t mix groups so jumping on an unfilled boat doesn’t seem to be an option. I’ve been working with one captain willing to try but no dice yet.  I could have the whole boat to myself for $600 I suppose...   So anyway, is there anyone who has a suggestion, contact, or even a boat in the Maryland area for ANY kind of fishing?  Honestly I’m pretty open but would prefer something coastal.  Have car, will travel.   I talked to a guy with a sweet jet boat at The Point of Rocks on the Potomac yesterday but he doesn’t guide.  But that could be an option too.  Might head to Niagara Falls after I’m done in Baltimore so NY state so there’s another one.   Yep, this is an official Wanderabout.
    • Tonight I caught crappie, bass, big bluegills, rock bass, pike and a snapping turtle.... All after 11pm!  Try it sometime, tiny black jigs for big nocturnal bluegills. Loud Black topwaters for Pike n bass. Bring extra flashlight batteries and bug spray, lots of bug spray!!!
    • Those old 2 strokes just keep running forever.
