Crap, I think Marwin just hurt his oblique. If he's done for the postseason, we're screwed.

Scott Baker is somewhere around the 25th best Twin of all-time.




I went to a client's wedding at the Sobieski, MN, town meeting hall about 15 years ago for a client's wedding reception. Matt will know where this is because it is about 12 miles from Little Falls. It was a Saturday evening in late June and a very hot evening like in the high 80's and humid. The Twins were playing I believe the Detroit Tigers and took a huge early lead at around 6-0. They didn't have the game on inside the hall because a band was playing and they wanted the guys on the dance floor rather than watching a baseball game. So I went out to my car about every half hour to check on the score on the car radio. By the fifth inning, Bake had allowed eight runs, the Twins were behind 6-8, and they ended up losing the game something like 11-10. That is my sole memory of Scott Baker as a Twins pitcher.

I remember that game! I was at a wedding reception riverside in East Grand Forks. haha!

Nice to get Marwin back.
Dudes a winner
You can feel it from him



Returning health
Kepler can take breaks
Cron thumb can rest
Have depth
Nicely done that way

I'm coming off the ledge , although starting pitching for the playoffs is a concern. Confident in bullpen after the Indian series.

Yeah, remember bstinger's brilliant prediction that we would have a 0.5 game lead when we returned home from Cleveland?

It wasn't a prediction. I never said it WOULD happen, I said there was a strong possibility. I also said I hoped I was wrong. That was also before I knew Kepler and Sano were coming back.

They really need to start shifting Arraez better. Very repetitive stuff I'm seeing.

For all those Schoop haters out there....There's a reason why we've seen the Twins experimenting with Arraez in LF and Rosario in RF.

Umm, they plan to trade Kepler.

I think Perez has a better shot at making the playoff roster than Gibby does at this point.

"I feel a great disturbance in the Force...."

I am just not a Gibby guy. He has been given too many chances this season.


100% lie. You are the biggest Gibby fan left of his ten remaining fans.

I was willing to give him more rope than anyone in here. I'm kinda done with him now.

I gave him a lot too, was down on him, then the news about his stomach issues came out. I'm pulling for him, but unless he shows something in last couple starts I won't count on him for playoff success.

Are you suggesting opposing teams find a way to stop Arraez?
Arraez would only adjust.
Arraez is Gary Kasparov playing chess
Against guys who win Cornhole contests at Trump Rallys.

I'm not "comfortable" with Perez in the postseason, but I think you start him and hope to get you 3, 4, 5 innings. Bullpen on call.

That goofy Twins FB site says
Smeltzer
Graterol
Astudillo.

Will not be on the playoff roster.

Why would they even consider announcing this at this time? That makes no sense.

Injuries, poor play, can factor in before the playoffs start...


Astudillo is the only one I agree with....I would put both Smeltzer & Graterol on the playoff roster before Gibson and Perez.

Certainly Graterol needs to be there if he's eligible.

He is and will be.
That’s clickbait junk.

Has it been confirmed that Graterol is eligible for postseason? Sure hope we didn't screw that up.

Bullpen games won't be as easy in playoffs when rosters go back to 25, unless starters go longer than they have been.

Twins say:

Miggy's 30th home run of the season traveled 482 ft - second longest in Target Field history!

I wouldn't be surprised if Astudillo makes post season

Marwin will be the key.

As for the other 2...who knows.

Fun that we can react and speculate.

I will take my chances with Perez over Nibfest. At least with Perez, the damage occurs quickly. With Gibby, it takes three times as many pitches, and four times longer between each pitch.

Really?!?!!? It didn't look like anything exceptional to me.

But I reserve the right to be corrected by JT2.

Astudillo has to make it.

Marwin better be healthy.

I am skeptical of Cron's health (thumb). Would much rather have a healthy Marwin over Cron. But Cron as a bench bat, if healthy, is fine.
