  • Series Preview: Twins @ Brewers, 5/27-5/30

    The Twins have fallen apart in the last few weeks. After staying near the .500 mark for the first six weeks of the season, the Twins lost ten in a row before winning one of a four game set against the Tigers.

    The bad news is that the rotation is in shambles and the offense isn't producing. The good news is that the Twins are heading to Milwaukee, a team that has struggled as mightily as the Twins, recording a 19-29 record over their first 48 games. The series opens with two games in Miller Park, followed by two more games in Target Field.

    Can the Twins right the ship against the Brewers in Milwaukee?

      I might want to consider just quitting while I'm losing, actually.

      I'd like to see the Brewers post game interview with Telly asking Gomez about his homer.

      This was a good thread and a good win for the Twins. The rest of today should be fun.

      Hey! No being a sourpuss. Today's KC and the Sunshine Band day. Save the grousing for when Pelfrey is up.

      Not sure, but I'm hoping it's 2015.

      Just a couple thoughts: Parmelee seems to be getting incrementally better. He's still got a long way to go. Florimon is having a nice first full season so far. Correia will probably limp through the season and win ten games, but the bloom is off the rose. Please Gardy, don't play Doumit in the outfield. The Twins played three very good teams during their losing streak. The Brewers are their speed. BTW, except for the Gomez and Segura who are those guys? They did have four ex-All Stars on the bench--Lucroy, Braun, Weeks and Ramirez.

      I was just thinking that some may say we lost 11 of our last 13... I'm saying we won 2 out of 3 and I'm gonna have a beer.

      That's more than a couple.

      I usually have to focus on one thought at a time or I get dizzy.
