  • Series Preview: Twins vs White Sox, 5/13-5-/15

    Before coming home to face the Orioles for three games at home, Minnesota made a trip around the American League, faced three over .500 teams, and returned with a 5-5 record.

    Upon greeting the Orioles for three games, they immediately decided to pitch three consecutive games of batting practice, allowing 23 runs over the weekend set.

    Thankfully, the Orioles are gone and the Twins are set to welcome the Chicago White Sox to Target Field. The White Sox and their unbalanced attack of no-hitting, excellent pitching may be the needed ingredient for the Twins starting staff to get back on track.

      I missed the Hicks show, we had a barn-burner of a t-ball game.

      I think we won.....23-22.

      I'm not watching it live, and I'm no expert on proper technique, but...

      Up by 3, bottom of 7th, Plouffe coming up...I'm OK with not trying to run aggressively there. I'd rather have Plouffe hitting with runners on 2nd and 3rd than leading off with bases empty the next inning if Mauer gets thrown out at the plate.

      Don't fool yourself - every kid on the field knows what the score is, whether it is kept "officially" or not.

      i went back and looked at it again... I was wrong... Infield was in... Mauer had no idea that Dunn would stumble in front of the 2B.

      Mauer was right to hold.

      Good hustle Arcia, too many batters would jog to first and let up.

      I think just about every dribbler could probably go for a home run at this point.
