Lewis is getting a little pop-up happy. Something to keep an eye on.

He went 2-4. Not worried about it.

Oakland is barely a AAA team but it is not easy to sweep anyone. and they not only completed the four game sweep they did it by taking a split double header.

It sure is a lot more fun to watch them when they are winning.

Carlos Correia and Royce Lewis are on fire right now.

To answer my own questions.

never got above A ball, and

AB 1021
R 113
H216
HR 23
RBI 121
SB 15
AVG .212
OBP .267
OPS .602

Started at ss, couldn't stay there, moved to 3B sucked more, then 1B/DH with little power.




Cant elevate past A Ball and this is the stat line?

Yep. He sucked.

I remember calling him Matt Moses II when he was drafted. Turns out I owe Matt Moses an apology.

Dang if Lewis stays healthy this kid could be top 5 all time Twin. I get the same early sense on his potential greatness that I got for Edwards on the Wolves.
Two incredible athletes that want to be the best.

So, Twins game starts at 6:40. Radar shows the line of thundershowers hits Target Field between 7:30 and 8 pm. There will be a rain delay. Do the Twins officials know they are in a tornado watch?

Tampa wants to get 5 innings in quickly.
What the hell is wrong with Lopez.
Would surprise me in two weeks he goes on the dl.
Twins training staff is a joke.

And yet, he managed the bullpen and pinch hitting to a tee to get us the walk off winner.

But quite frankly, the stupid he does far outweighs the occasional blind squirrel moment.

Is Lewis now the best hitter in baseball?

Tough to make the throw with both hands around your throat.

I was at both the Tuesday and Wednesday night games.

Staumont pitched the ugliest scoreless inning in the history of baseball. We deserved to win that game just for that.

I didn't understand not pinch-hitting Jeffers for Vazquez with the winning run (Buxton) on base. Also, with 2 outs, Buxton should have at least tried to steal 2nd.

I stayed until the end. Well worth it. Squeezed the game in as perfectly as possible. Great grounds crew work!

Alcala wasn't much better than Staumont. They were MILES away from the StrikeZone last night.

They twice had Caleb Thielbar warming up.

They didn't pinch hit for Vazquez...no brainer right there with Jeffers on the bench. Buxton not trying to steal. That game just felt like they were struggling. To pull off a win last night would have been quite the feat considering the struggles they were having. Add in that Royce Lewis bad throw. Correa not catching the ball on what would have been caught steeling...Sands not coughing up the game. The Twins did a lot to shoot themselves in the foot in this game.

Add an umpire calling balls way too high strikes. Austin Martin in the 9th that ball was way high. I am ready for the electronic strike zone.

But Austin Martin did make a nice leaping grab.

Gary Gaetti

September 28 – The Twins suffered their biggest blown lead for a loss in team history. Leading Cleveland 10-0 in the third inning, and 10-2 in the sixth, they lost the 9-inning game 11-10. In the ninth, relievers Ron Davis and Ed Hodge loaded the bases. Hodge allowed a walk-off single.

Gaetti had a throwing error in the 6th inning with the Twins leading 10 to 6. Later, in an SI article, G Man acknowledged it is hard to throw to first with both hands around your neck. Despite the collapse in the game and the season, I knew the team had players that could go far into the playoffs and in 87, won it all.

Because although Lewis hit another HR, he also made the game-blowing bad throw on a routine play in the 10th inning.
