    Aren’t they copying MMP with their new digs?

    Twins blew it. 2 outs none on in the 9th. HBP, double, single off an infielder’s glove. Then in the bottom of the 9th, bases loaded DP to end the game.

    Twins blow a 9th inning lead vs. the A's, then have bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th but ground into a game inning double play

    Should we get real excited about this guy, or play it cool? I was impressed.

    Could be another Corbin Martin first home start type outing, but he is no Yordan (2020 All-Star). Allowing 2 hits is not a typical start, but if he does this frequently. I can see Fernando Valenzuela-mania.

    I was too. But consistency is the threshold on determining his future. For the short term, we got two months to see if he can help us in the playoffs this year or not.

    I wonder if Julia got a new job. Seems like they are making contingencies to train her replacement.

    Springer
    Altuve
    Bregman
    Brantley
    Correa
    Álvarez
    Yuli
    Chirinos
    Reddick

    That’s the playoff batting order ... agree?
    1-4 is set in stone. I like the righty between the 2 smashing lefties ... right ?

    I think everyone is just taking their mid season vacations, so all hands on deck. She’s filling in for Eschenfelder i believe.

    Blum took his vacation before the All Star Break (Berkman filled in)

    Kalas took his vacation after the All Star Break (Eschenfelder filled in)

    Eschenfelder took his vacation now (Julia slid over to pre game/post game duties and Margeaux back filled her).

    Astros set record for most HRs vs the Rangers, single season ('03 Oakland).

    Pitching has stepped up. Now let’s get to Lynn.
