Twins 5, Pirates 2: Five is more than two

Twins 5, Pirates 2: Five is more than two

And that’s how winning works! The Twins were very solid on both sides of the field. Starter Jake Odorizzi got into trouble early, making people everywhere (or maybe just me) ask “Odorizzi he bad today, or Odorisn’t he?” Odorizzi gave up a single and a walk to start the second, the former of which would score when Francisco Cervelli doubled soon thereafter. An RBI groundout followed, but Ol’ Jake managed to wiggle his way out of the inning without further damage. His 3rd and 4th would be much, much smoother. Very good pitcher Jameson Taillon was working on a perfect game entering...

Let’s make the newest Twins mascot a tray of tater tots

Like, the actual mascot. Just a tray of tater tots masquerading as tater tot hotdish. It was brought to my attention on Monday that the Twins are planning to add a new mascot to the Mascot Race at Target Field. Currently, the race features five characters: Babe the Blue Ox, a walleye (she usually wins), a loon, the Target dog, and a mosquito. The Twins are asking for our input on what the new mascot should be, and here are the choices: Help us choose a new face to win the @Target mascot race!Meet the candidates and vote now: https://t.co/KRmkpJWInV pic.twitter.com/IvmelOveKZ— Minnesota...

Monday Morning Minnesota: No Subtitle Edition

Nothing here either. A lawyer who was a key player in keeping the Twins from being contracted all those years ago passed away recently, which means it is a great time to look back. That season was the reason I got in to baseball, and I consider myself forever indebted to everyone who helped keep this team in Minnesota. Without them I wouldn’t have a reason to be writing bad jokes on the internet! Dakota Chalmers, who the Twins got for Fernando Rodney, could be an “organization changer.” I assume this means he’ll bumble around between AAA and the Twins for like 3 seasons, get DFAd,...

Tigers 4, Twins 2: No run support

The Tigers got the lead in the 5th inning and never looked back. Today was a special day for Kohl Stewart, as he made his first MLB start for the Twins. As far as first starts go, it went fairly well. All of the scouting on Stewart says he’s a ground-ball pitcher, and he lived up to that reputation. Stewart seemingly sailed through 4 innings, getting nearly all of his outs via the grounder. The Twins defense turned two double plays behind him to help him out. But, as that old saying, and not something I just made up, goes: “You live by the grounder, you die by the grounder.” The...
