Strikeouts through the first week are at 8.95-per-game (per team). A small sample size, but up 0.3-per-team yet again. The game is getting unwatchable.

For the first time ever at least 3 of the final four coaches have multiple T's in their name.

Ober getting beat like a rented mule today.



Ober ERA is 54.00


If he was a reliever, his ERA would be shot for the season. A reliever would have to pitch 2 months of scoreless ball to get back to respectable again.

Tell me. What does this have to do with the Twins?


And why does it matter, at all?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Royce Lewis participated in a rigorous leg-based program this offseason designed to strengthen his tendons. It didn’t matter.

Saturday, the Minnesota Twins placed Lewis on the injured list with a “severe” right quadriceps strain that could sideline him for several months, according to team sources.

At a minimum, the Twins plan to rest the young star for a month before reassessing.
Lewis suffered the injury running the bases in the third inning of Thursday’s season opener after homering in his first at-bat and singling in his second trip.

It’s the third major injury for Lewis since 2021 and means he’ll miss significant time for a fourth straight season after having his 2020 minor-league season wiped out by COVID-19.

-------

Though Lewis has played only 77 games in his career, he is already a force at the plate. Including the postseason, Lewis has homered 26 times in 308 plate appearances, a Babe Ruth-type start.

The No. 1 pick of the 2017 MLB Draft has the type of talent that repeatedly lifted the Twins down the stretch in 2023 while Byron Buxton was on the injured list and Carlos Correa slumped through a season in which he played through plantar fasciitis. As good as they feel about their depth, the Twins know replacing Lewis won’t be easy.

-------

What’s particularly frustrating for the Twins is the amount of work Lewis put into strengthening his legs in the offseason. The team devised a plan for Lewis, and he implemented it. As he went through spring training, Lewis said he felt “like a true athlete.”

“We talked about a lot of isometrics, which is tendon health,” he said. “I felt like we did a great job with running plyometrics, which is, like, jumping, single-leg hops, two-leg hops. … It’s kind of one of those things where there’s nothing I would have done different. It’s a play where every single baseball player would look to score. Especially a ball down the line, I don’t think I would have changed (anything) I would have done. Just another freak deal.”

My prediction is 83 wins and a division title.

I should probably revise this.

Nope. That looks about right.

Byron Buxton nearly got run over by a sausage in a race today. As much as I want him to stay healthy, that would have been the most hilariously Buxtonesque injury ever.

If Brooks Lee doesn't come up when he is healthy, fans shouldn't be happy.

According to Forbes' annual MLB valuation estimates, the #MNTwins are now worth $1.46 billion, an increase of $70 million from 2023.

Twins are estimated to have generated $342 million in 2023 revenue, for a profitable operating income of $19 million.

Gleeman and other Kool Aid posters are pissed after last year....visibly. First time I have ever seen Twins Daily and Gleeman post it.

We're still whining about this? We'll make trades near the deadline to bolster our rotation and lineup if necessary. That's smart.

The A's say they're moving to Sacramento. I say no chance. It's all a bluff.

Sacramento has an NBA team. They could have a baseball team.

They are moving to Sacramento.

For 3 years.

A's officially leaving Oakland after 2024, will play in Sacramento through 2027 until Vegas stadium is ready

A 14,000 capacity ballpark (which includes lawn seating/SRO) does not meet the requirements for an MLB team. If you remember, that's why Metropolitan Stadium had to be expanded if the Senators were going to leave DC for the Twin Cities.

It's temporary.

I am willing to bet they will make an exception here.

They're averaging 6500 fans this season.

Huge interest in the home opener.
Posts were fast and furious during the game.
