  1. Nobody would disagree, but it still doesn't take away from all the division titles and accomplishments he had in his career prime. Much love for Joe!
  2. Tonight was another magical night. Very nice to come away with a win for Joe. 47-22 now, and still the best record in baseball. Hopefully Perez can give us a good game tomorrow and we can come away with the sweep.
  3. I do agree with you. I was worried about it even from a winning standpoint, considering how much our bullpen had been struggling lately, but luckily Rogers held it together. Although he was a couple feet away from giving up a bomb to left field.
  4. Not a bad series against Seattle. Can't ever complain about taking 2 out 3. However this upcoming 3 game set against KC should be one we should sweep. The Royals are 8-23 on the road. This would be a good chance for the bullpen to regroup.
  5. What's frustrating for me is I really question whether we made an actual attempt at getting him. It just never felt like our ownership or our fans were totally in on getting him, which baffles me considering how good he is. I'm confident we will figure out a closer solution though. Parker and Rogers are solid.
  6. There's something very special about this team!
  7. Big win against the Angels tonight! Bullpen came in clutch, but Sano's bomb is what got us the win. **** pointed out a huge stat after the game. 16-3 is our record after a loss this year. That's huge that we are keeping those losing streaks away! Very excited about this team right now, need to keep it rolling. 31-16 and a 5.5 game lead in the division!
  8. Pretty important 4 game set coming up against the Mariners, since the Indians will be playing the Orioles. I think it's important we keep the confidence up and keep at least a 3 game lead in the division. Tonight- Pineda is pitching and hopefully he can take the positives out of the last start and give a solid performance tonight.
  9. Bumgarner wouldn't be bad either
  10. Twins got lucky today. Bullpen almost blew it. This will be a problem if we don't address it by the trade deadline, especially if we want to compete in the postseason. Everything else is looking pretty good. Garver's injury isn't too bad it looks like, so he might only miss a couple weeks.
  11. Twins Talk - Where Snow Outs Happen

    Definitely. Rocco as manager was what this team needed.
  12. Agreed. Obviously there's a lot of factors that are going into this early success, but the power is what sticks out to me. The rotation is definitely improved which has been huge as well. 8th ranked starting rotation right now in terms of ERA.
  13. Twins Talk - Where Snow Outs Happen

    This team might be the most likable team we've had in over a decade. There isn't a guy in our lineup I can complain about right now. This is awesome.
  14. Don't get me wrong, I will forever appreciate what Joe Mauer did for our franchise, but he never really was even close to a slugger, or a power hitter with the exception of '09, but he always was right in the middle of our lineup. I feel like taking him out and adding more power heavy guys like Cruz, Cron and Schoop have been huge. This is no hate against Mauer at all, because he'll forever be one of my favorite athletes, but the addition of power to our lineup has been huge and I think it's a change that we needed to make, considering we never have been much of a power hitting club in recent years, which may have been due to the fact that our team revolved around a guy that didn't hit for much power at all, and mostly was a singles/walks type of guy.
  15. If Perez is able to come even close to maintaining this current pace, this will be absolutely huge going forward. Man this team has me excited right now.
