    Hitting up Minnesota Clutchfans. Any of y'all also Stros fans and interested in seeing the 1st place Stros take on the still contending Twins that weekend? If you're going already let me know if you would be interested in getting together for a drink near Target Field before or after the game.

    Our group is doing the mascot race Friday night. We have 6 so I may bow out since I did it in May.

    I remember you mentioning you were doing the mascot race. I'm thinking about going to both Friday and Sunday games. If you do the mascot race post which one you'll be and will make sure to cheer.

    I'm 2 hours south in Iowa, but that is my birthday weekend and can't think of a better way to spend it than seeing a game. This is probably the closest they get to me. Would be down for the Saturday game I think.

    Come on up from Iowa. I'm checking with my GF and other friends, unfortunately all Twins fans, to see which game they want to see. I definitely want to catch the opening night game and then might check pitching matchups to decide between Saturday, Sunday or both.

    Just got tickets for Friday August 28. Am going to check out the pitching matchups to decide which other game.

    Would be happy to say to hi to any Clutchfans before or after the game.

    Pretty good pitching matchup tonight between Kazmir and Gibson. Tomorrow night looks good too with Fiers and Pelfry. Local MN Sports radio has been giving a lot of credit to the Stros and with Twins having fought there way back into the playoffs they are looking to try to keep the momentum going.

    Twins are playing good baseball, to win the series we have to play great. We have to be careful with Sano and hopefully Gattis and Gomez will continue to hit. Even if we face lefties please no Carter.

    Good thing then all three Twins starters slated (Gibson, Pelfrey and Santana) are right handers.

    I'll be the odd man out when our group runs the mascot race tonight. 6 people, 5 spots. I bowed out since I ran earlier this year.

    Where are your tickets? We are in the Champion's Club tonight and the Delta Lounge Saturday and Sunday.

    Nothing against the Twins really. Kirby Puckett.

    With that being said, if they cost us a playoff spot or they take 2 of 3 this series, they can sit on it.

    Nothing nearly as sweet as your seats. I'll be in row 3 of section 304.

    Thinking about to the game tomorrow night to see Fiers but haven't gotten tickets for that.

    I had even said something to the effect in May that one of the mascots was lacking confidence. What were the odds?

    Correa being out again is a little concerning. Hope Hinch can clarify some things pregame.

    Not a particular play? Not on one of those throws by Carter when he got up clutching his hamstring? Hmmm. Maybe two particular plays.
