2014 Game 64: Minnesota Twins at Toronto Blue Jays – DAY/MLB.COM FREE GAME ALERT

Our "ace" squares off against their rookie phenom. Taking 2 of 3 from these guys on the road would be something. If they pull it off, that would make the Twins 6 for 6 in series against the AL East (!?).

  1. MLB Free Game of the day!
    My company's internet is through Saint Looie, so there it is on my screen.
    Boss is out for the rest of the week but wants deliverables delivered next week. I'll mostly just listen.

  2. If they pull it off, that would make the Twins 6 for 6 in series against the AL East (!?).
    I was looking at standings this morning. Twins are 11-10 in division, 11-6 against the East, 2-2 against the NL Central, but 6-15 against the ALWest and NLWest combined.

    1. Also, Redmond's Marlins are 34-30, a half-game out of first and out of the first WC spot, tied for the second with the Dodgers.

  3. I wish the guy named Gose would play for the Twins.
    He reminds me I need some Schell's Goosetown.

    1. In looking it up on Wikipedia, I had no idea that the entire style of beer had disappeared from 1966-1986.
      I've never had the style from anyone else, but Schell's version is so nice and refreshing on hot summer days.
      I was afraid at the mention of coriander, but it's very subtle, unlike just about every other beer I've had that is made with the spice.

      I remember hearing stories of some NU locals that would salt their beers. I wonder if a Gose is what they were trying to reproduce.

      1. I've never actually had a Gose, but I will be on the lookout for the Goosetown because I've been digging the hell out of the Schell's seasonals lately.

            1. au contraire.

              Gose belongs to the same family of sour wheat beers which were once brewed across Northern Germany and the Low Countries. Other beers of this family are Belgian Witbier, Berliner Weisse, Broyhan, Grätzer and Gueuze.

      1. The most successful manager at challenges?

        The worst?

        1. It says something for the umpires that the most successful manager at challenges is still below .500.

            Gardy?

            1. Jeff may have seen it when I had it written as "X-Y" instead of "X out of Y". I realized X-Y looks too similar to win-loss so rewrote it rather than do the math.

  4. Most depressing MLB Gameday "Scout" ever:

    Bobby Korecky may prefer to go after Joe Mauer, whose OPS is .650 this season, with the four-seam fastball rather than facing Danny Santana, whose OPS is .871.

      1. I just found out yesterday that the Yankee fan I worked with is quitting, so I only have another week to give him crap about Hughes.

          1. I kind of feel bad for the guy with the Knicks hiring Derek Fisher, the Rangers getting stomped and the Yankees being crap.... wait, no I don't.

  5. Man, we Americans still don't have any kind of reputation for excellent brews here in England. I mentioned American beers that are available at the bar across the street again tonight and the English service engineer I'm with tonight scoffed as much as I've seen anyone scoff calling it nothing more than crap lager. Ah well, more for us then.
