I don't know about you guys, but I'd think long and hard about sending Berrios down to AA.

Berrios seems has his $hit together tonight. Good to see. Although I admittedly haven't seen much of this game.

How can you let Wilson bat???

I have it on good record that Molitor loves Bobby Wilson. Molitor actually wanted Wilson to be his #1 catcher this season, but Falvey and Levine wouldn't have it.

When the schedule came out I looked at games around my birthday, like I usually do, to see if we play at home and consider getting myself and maybe my family a ticket to go watch. I'd like to go to a game with my dad one more time. We haven't been to Target Field together. It's tough for him to go most places because he has breathing problems and has to use a nebulizer every couple of hours and runs out of breath quickly if he has to go very far or climb many stairs. I strongly considered it with the Cardinals coming in but didn't pull the trigger. I probably would've chosen tomorrow's game but I have a training session my employer paid for me to attend tomorrow.

Matt, hope you and Pete bring us a win! You have an uphill battle with Lynn on the mound.

Berrios pitched great. Now we get to read about how everyone loves him. Lance Lynn is still worth a bag of balls though...Romero still the ACE of the staff? Love the comedy hour.

Biggest reason MN has had the Cards number in the 3 games has been solid starting pitching

See what Lynn can do vs ex-teammates tonight. Am sure he'll be fired up.

Statistically, Lynn has to have a good start. He cannot be as bad as he has shown thus far.

Luke Weaver could tell the difference in St. Louis Cardinals camp this spring. With Lance Lynn no longer around, there was a void that went beyond the starting rotation.
“He always had a big voice in the clubhouse,” Weaver said of his fellow right-hander. “He knew what to say. Every day he had some jokes. Not having that guy across the locker room and not hearing him was different, but players come and go with different teams and this is part of it. I know the Twins got a good guy over there and a heck of a pitcher.”
Seven starts into his Twins tenure, Lynn is still trying to live up to his bulldog reputation. He will carry a 1-3 record and 7.34 earned-run average into Wednesday’s 12:10 p.m. start against his former team.

Just three pitchers with more than 30 innings have a higher ERA or nine-inning walk rate (6.55) than Lynn, who signed a one-year, $12 million deal that includes separate $1 million escalators for reaching both 170 and 180 innings.
Averaging just 4.9 innings per start, Lynn is on pace to work just 162 innings, even if he gets his usual 33 starts. He’s also coming off a start in Anaheim, Calif., in which he got just two swing-and-miss strikes in his final 54 pitches after requiring a trainer’s visit to the mound to check on what Lynn described as a “stinger” that “kind of shot up through the lower back and (left) hip.”
Weaver, a former first-round pick who still refers to Lynn as “Ole Lance,” said he learned plenty about pitching from a veteran who won 77 games for the Cardinals, including five in the postseason, from 2011-17.
“He taught me a lot,” Weaver said. “Some conversations we had about pitching were really advanced. Sometimes I wouldn’t even talk. I’d just listen. He just had a real light attitude. He joked around a lot. It was just cool to have him around. He’s missed, but we know he’s doing all right.”
Lynn, who turned a $17.4 million qualifying offer from the Cardinals before waiting until March 12 to sign, had some pointed comments for his former organization during the Twins’ visit to St. Louis last week.
“I was here for seven years, and there’s no loyalty in the game,” Lynn told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “You’ve noticed players not having the loyalty anymore either. … Maybe I’ll just go on and be a hired gun the rest of my career; I don’t really care.”

This!

I love Berrios.
I still think Lance Lynn is worth only a bag of balls in a trade.
In my opinion, Romero still is the staff ACE.
Been funny in here, I love the comedy hour atmosphere.

I’m thinking the food spread has more leftovers.

His problem is pitch control. He averages about four BB per start.

More patient batters in the AL and pitchers don't bat.
