2016 Games 17 & 18: Twins @ Orioles – Let’s play two!

The Twins are coming off losing a fairly disappointing series against a very beatable Blue Jays team. Every game felt winnable, but they were only able to seal the deal once.

THANKFULLY, the Orioles seem as beatable, if not more so.

Let's see if Polanco can't continue his crazy run, and if they can't bring out the brooms for a doubleheader sweep today.

  1. It's so ridiculously nice outside today. Already went on a 90-minute walk with the children, and played basketball for two hours. Let's just bottle this weather up and keep it for six months.

        1. Of the many things I can’t stand about Bert, the worst is “but that’s how today’s game is played.”

          1. That’s how it’s been played for decades
          2. Commenting on how today’s game is played is literally your exact job

            1. Oh yeah, I totally forgot you had mentioned the BBQ trailer guy.

              I got a hankering for some good ass BBQ, so I might get some smoky Jon's next weekend.

  2. Cory just said Blake Parker is ill. I wondered why he didn't pitch the ninth. The pretty much leaves us with May, Harper, Mejia, Duff-man, and Romero. Eh, that could still work.

  3. What a day. Got up and finished up the daughter’s car, it’s running like a Buxton now. Watched the first six innings of game one and listened to the rest on the way to and waiting for a table after checking in at Texas Roadhouse for my birthday dinner. After dinner we stopped at the park by the river for a little stroll, then home for some Frisbee with the dog. My mother, who has been here for six weeks helping out while I convalesced, headed home this morning so we have our empty nest back. After this game we’ll have some wine on the deck and then [Harm to Ongoing Matter].

  4. Is anyone falling in love with baseball listening to Kitty & Bert talk about how pitchers today need to throw more innings because they’re bigger, stronger, better trained, & making $15 million a year?

    1. I just saw the last couple innings on TV, which isn't fair because it was a blowout then. But if they spent the whole doubleheader talking as much about the sixties as they did at the end if would've driven me nuts. I love sixties baseball and the sixties Twins--that's what I grew up with. But save it for a podcast or the pregame show. When I turn on the 2019 Twins, that's who I want to hear about.

  5. More LTEs in this double game log than any in 2018. Only six surpassed the century mark. If you exclude the "postseason" in 2017, also surpassed all game logs from that year too. Ten game logs reached 100 LTEs. You have to go back to 2013 to get any regular season game log to top 200 LTEs.

  6. I had a dream last night that I was watching this game and the Twins were letting it get away from them. The orioles hit back to back home runs, the second of which was a grand slam (it confused dream me, too) to make it 13-12. Then I woke up.
