    Twins Chances

    Realistically I don't think we are going to catch them... we are playing great baseball, but I just think that loss yesterday hurt us. I would like to think differently but just don't want to get my hopes up then watch them fall.
    Your thoughts?

    They have a 10 game road trip now, before the last 3 at home against the Royals.

    They will have to play really good on the road trip, probably 7-3 or so, to have a chance going into the last weekend.

    They have a chance, but have verrrrrry little room for error. The Yankees are rooting for them to beat the Tigers.

    Re: Twins Chances

    Span striking out 4 times really hurt on Sunday. The rotation has really picked it up recently, but I really doubt the Twins take the division.

    The problem is we have 6 games against the best team in the Central right now, KC. I think we'll still have a shot when that 4 game series against the Tiggers comes up next week, but I think the Royals are going to take us out of the race

    No chance. As all Twins fans know....they play different on the road (esp this year) than in the dome.

    Re: Twins Chances

    It's going to be tough. The Twins are not a very good road team, and the White Sox would like nothing better than to knock them out of the race. There is still hope, but I just don't see it happening this year. Not sure it matters. I don't see anyone from the Central capable of beating the Yankees, so.......

    The Tigers are more than capable. That's why I wanna see the Twins there. Verlander and Jackson both OWN the Yankees (both sub-1.3 ERAs vs. the Yankees).

    Re: Twins Chances

    About the only Twin that hits Greinke well is Kubel (364). Crede does too, but obviously he will not be a factor. Cuddyer is not bad......286. If the rotations follow to form, Greinke will be facing them the last game of the season too, I believe.

    It will be fun to watch. Hopefully, Span will be back on Friday, and maybe the White Sox won't lay down for the Tigers like Cleveland did. Would love to see the Twins within a game, or even ahead by the time they get to Detroit next week. They are 2 and 3 against the Tigers this year in Detroit, so anything can happen.

    I hope they can keep playing well.

    Re: Twins Chances

    It was good for Minnesota these last 3 games that Chicago has packed it in, but on the flip side it is bad for them since Detroit still plays Chicago 6 times.

    Now that the Twins are done with them here's hoping some of the White Sox young guys get hot for the next 10 days or so.

    And what the heck has gotten into Cuddy? Dude drives me crazy the whole year and now he and Punto (don't get me started on him) have put the team on their backs for the stretch run....weird.

    If the Twins win every game from here on out they win the division. It's nice being able to control your own destiny...

    Re: Twins Chances

    Backup catcher Mike Redmond wants to re-sign with the Twins this offseason, according to Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Rookie Jose Morales has been backing Joe Mauer up lately, so the Twins have options behind the plate.
    Charley Walters of the Pioneer Press says the Twins "are expected" to try to sign Joe Mauer for about $120MM over seven years after this season. If Mauer hits free agency after next season, he'd probably see multiple offers worth more than $120MM.
