Twins postponed with COVID.

Andrelton Simmons decided to be the jerkoff to not get vaccinated and ruin it for the rest of the team.

The Twins had very, very few problems with COVID last season. It would have to be some free agent jerk to come in and mess that up.

I don't know how the team is going to make up these games, especially if some of these Oakland games start getting canceled.

Great game between the Twins and A's. Chapman almost had the walk off in the 9th

“There’s a lot of great, new information, a lot of great ways that you can improve how you coach up or prepare. The difference is that once the game starts, there is no formula that can measure the head, heart and guts of a player that day.” - Tony La Russa

I guess Giolito didn't have enough head, heart and guts after all.

Small sample size of course, but Rodon's looked rather good.

Super glad that the Twins waited on calling up Kiriloff for no reason at all

Luis Robert will be out for at least 12 weeks. Ugh, it was bad enough they lost Jimenez.

How are the Twins this bad? Even the Tigers are better

Gotta love the tank job. Pistons sit two guys for "personal reasons", Ellington, Plumlee and Grant are nursing the lamest injuries simultaneously, and then Sryvidis is just absolutely going off in the first half so Casey sits him lol

Detroit against a playoff team down basically 4 starters still had to tank even further to not win

Grandal's hitting .135. His OBP is .393. Fucking crazy.

15 years ago today, Reggie Sanders became only the 5th player to join the 300-300 club...

Because an Indians-Mariners trade for a 1st baseman has never gone wrong for Seattle...


And let's not forget the Asdrubal Cabrera-Eduardo Perez trade.

Bauers seems like a bust at this point. Over 900 PA and he has an OPS+ of 81. Even his minor league track record wasn't particularly great (.275/.361/.414). He never had an OPS above .800 at any of his minor league stops. I know he was young for the levels he played at but that still doesn't come off as very impressive for a corner OF/1B.

The fact we keep winning like this without Eloy/Robert/Madrigal/Kopech, etc. is amazing to me. I still think we absolutely have to go get Marte or Frazier.
