Two years ago, Newbish was born. One day ago, I set up his first tee and watched him take his first swings with a baseball bat (some pop ups, and one solid line drive). It was even Probably Prince day yesterday (newbish loves Prince), so everything seems perfect.
Even more, this doubleheader means something. Depending on how the day goes, we could be one down, or three up. That's a big swing.

We're over a third done with the regular season. That seems kind of impossible.

On the road, so no in depth analysis. Twins look to continue the dominance.
So, another Saturday, another minor leaguer trying to break through, this is getting a little played out......wait, Jose Berrios??
All is saved.

Well, wasn't that something? I turned off the game in the 7th, because my wife wanted to watch a movie (The new Bourne movie, or, as I like to call it, Very Serious People Walking Quickly), so.... yeah.

10% of the season is over, and the Twins don't have a losing record. This feels like progress. Continue reading Game 17: tigers @ twins
It's Jackie Robinson day. It took them too long to make it happen, but better late than never. The game was made infinitely better by Jackie, and the whole "everybody wears 42"thing is a great way to commemorate him.
The Twins sort of need another hot steak. I know it's asinine to complain about their record after last year, but they are 2-4 over their last six

I know this might not be a popular opinion around here, but I'm willing to be a contrarian. This season has started better than 2016 did.

The terrible twos have come a few months early!
Now, normally, this is actually not that bad a thing. As long as he's happy and content, watching him run around like a hellion and play toys and body slam his giant plush BB-8 is actually a joy to behold.
I'm just wondering how well that energy is going to work when we have to contain it for three hours on a plane.
