    The Twins are hitting a lot of balls very hard against Gonzalez.

    They picked their poison.

    Duffey won’t be asked to close games. It’s the first week of the season. They’re trying to get everyone into games.

    The bullpen has given up 2 runs and 8 hits in 9.1 innings in two games and we’re already griping about how we can’t hold leads. 🙄

    I wasn’t griping about anything. I was just pointing out they had to trade their closer because they had weak starting pitching.

    I played softball against a bunch of them in league a couple summers ago. Super good group of guys. Really fun to play against.

    Really promising start from Chris Archer tonight too. Looked much more like the Rays version of Chris Archer tonight. Slider was sharp and he was pitching with emotion. I wish I could find a video of the interview/chat he had with Bremer and Morneau this weekend. Really fun guy.

    This is not a lineup you can afford to walk guys with and Thielbar was really struggling with his command, which is uncommon for him. Arraez booting a double play ball didn’t help matters.

    In the 7 perfect innings he struck out 13 and threw 80 pitches. #Dominate

    Can the Twins now break up the perfect game against the reliever(s)?

    Buxton back in the lineup today for the Twins against Zach Greinke.

     

    Twins also released former high prospect Lewis Thorpe today after they finalized the PTBNL in the Taylor Rogers/Chris Paddack trade.

    Buxton with a 2 run homer in the bottom of the 7th to tie it and a 3 run home in the bottom of the 9th to win it.

     

    Buxton has 6 home runs (in 37 at bats) and is tied for the Major League lead.

     

    The other two guys have done it in 62 and 56 at bats respectively.

    I’m still shocked they threw that pitch to him at all. I get throwing a few after the wild pitch to see if he’ll chase, but when it goes to 3-1 and you have first open, what the hell are you thinking?

    We were at the game today.  When he came up for the fourth time after three strikeouts, I commented how a player could have three  bad at-bats and then become the hero.  I was just thinking of getting the tying HR.  The winner was the most obvious HR right off the bat I’ve seen.  I just yelled, “WOW!”

    From Sunday’s game, the junior PA was the best I’ve seen (he did an Adam Abrams type announcement) After he got a good reaction, he hammed it up a little more.  The crowd was really into it, and we could see the players getting a real kick out if it.  Then, after the half inning was done, Abrams introduced the new Twins pitcher using the same style the kid was using.  It was epic.  They gotta bring that kid back for game 7 of the World Series.

    The Twins put this out today.
