    Twins continue to look bad in close games late. May comes in-- three run homer. Routine deep fly-- Rosario drops the ball for two unearned runs, and that's the game.

    Will be curious to see how long Rocco goes before he shakes up the lineup. I'd like to see Arraez take over second and leadoff. Platoon Gonzalez and Sano at third. And make the trade for Smith-- soon.

    They were bound to hit a stretch like this. Houston did like month ago and rebounded. Good teams bounce back. We will find out what kind of team this is over the next 2-3 weeks.

    Might have to pop over to Target Field for a game when Yanks are in town. Trying to figure out who will be pitching. Unscheduled double header and rain out yesterday pushed everyone back a day. Going with an "opener" in 2nd to avoid messing up the rotation more than that. Looks like Sabathia, German and Happ. Twins will miss Tanaka because of the rainout. Weather looks good all three days.

    Good thing they didn't have a matinee game this afternoon. Woof. Really hot for Minnesota. ****, it's like Vicksburg had a major league team and they didn't play in a dome.

    I am hoping that the Twins keep the division lead but I think that injuries and pitching will be the undoing of this team for the division to the Indians. Hard to say this a month ago but I believe the Twins will be in 2nd place in the division by the end of July. Hope not.

    Going to be a wet wet field tonight. Going to pretty much rain all day here. Already laid down another inch of rain but at least it won't be oppressively hot.

    Edit: looks like it going to stop rain by 1:00 so time to dry out a little bit. Only 63 degrees outside!

    First bad game last night for Rogers in a long time. He's been lights out in the last month.

    Giving up on the Twins getting SF's Smith. Hope they are zeroing in on Tiger's Boyd and Greene. They need both.

    If you believe rumor reports, Tigers asked the Yankees for Gleyber Torres for Boyd. :eek: Yanks aren't parting with Torres but that will let you maybe know how much they are asking for Boyd. And it might cost the Twins that much to get him from a division rival. If they stick to asking that much than Boyd isn't going anywhere.

    In other news, it's a beautiful baseball weather day in Minneapolis. Nary a thunderboomer on the radar and not humid or hot!

    With as many teams like SF in the wild card
    hunt, who think they need to hold on, it is really helping Detroit. If the true sellers want major league starters, the Twins will only be wishful buyers. Maybe that's all Falvey is anyway.

    Nice come back in spite of May looking bad again. Twins have unloaded three relievers in the last week so they need May and Littell to hold their own. Hope the deal is sweet enough to land the Tiger's Greene.

    Still pissed we blew Saturday night but salvaged yesterday which is nice. Need to go on a run. The Indians aren't going away.

    I have been considering buying a New Jersey since my Mauer one might need to go in a frame for the man cave. Kepler is currently the clubhouse leader for my next purchase. Love that guy.

    Goes without saying how big this series is with NYY this week. Gotta get 2 out of 3.

    Couple of things:

    1) Great season so far and the Twins have exceeded expectations.

    2) Buxton needs to play smarter. He is too valuable to the Twins to take chances as he gets hurt easily. Example this last time he dove for the ball and got hurt the Twins were up six runs in the late innings of the game. Needs to know when to be physically smarter with his body.

    3) Sano needs to learn how to hit a curve ball, or at least be patient at the plate.

    3) Sano leads the team in walk rate. When he was struggling earlier in the season, he was whiffing on good fastballs.

    That would be great, but the Yankee$ are a better team than the Twins right now. Hope the Bombas heat up and we can take at least one.

    That triple play was cool. To bad Perez walks way too many and they were in that position in the first place.
