    Twins

    Big 4 game weekend series in the D. Important to keep the Tigers near or below the .500 mark and to keep pace with the White Sox.

    1 ET start today... and I'm off to the game. I've budgeted myself properly this month and will be at all 4 games, drinking and eating. Can't wait.

    Can't spell Twins without the WIN!

    Re: Twins

    The team needs to get back to winning. I realize their road record is crap...but they could have won 2/3 from the Red Sox.

    Let's go TWINS!

    Yeah - so close in each of those three games at Boston, but just couldn't quite get the job done. Hope they paste the walls with the Tiggers...

    Re: Twins

    They need the starting pitching to go DEEP into the games in order to avoid the gas can the middle relief has become. The Boston sweep shows how much the team misses someone like Neshek.

    Now just put up 10+ runs a game on the Motor City Kitties, and it won't be a problem!

    It was a game up until the bottom of the 7th when they put up a 7-spot on us, and then another 4 for good measure in the 8th. They scored enough runs in the last two innings alone to win that game. I'm comfortable saying that was a game for most of it.

    Re: Twins

    I just think it's kind of a stretch to say each game was "so close" when you lost by a baker's dozen.

    It was a game until the Twins gave up 11 runs in two innings. That's not exactly a compliment. It was the second most runs Boston has scored in Fenway in the last 50 years.

    Re: Twins

    Twins made it back 6-6 top of the 9th!

    Kubel on first, looks like they're walking Morneausie and Craig Monroe up to save the day

    I don't care what team you are or who you are playing. Taking 18 of 20 is something to write home about.

    And slapped them? Give me a break, the first two were great one run games and could have gone either way. One game got out of hand in the 7th and 8th inning. Crawl back in your hole.

    Re: Twins

    Great weekend for the Twins. Taking 3 of 4 on the road the finish the first half is big... should carry over to the second half.

    1.5 back in the division and 2.5 back in the wild card. Unfortunately only one more series against the White Sox the rest of the year.
