Minnesota Twins Opening Day!!! Yay!!!

Tonight is opening day for the Minnesota Twins (at Chicago White Sox)

Just in case:

:salute

O! say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming:
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming,
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there
O! say, does that Star-spangled Banner still* wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

:salute


Play ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:bouncies :bouncies :bouncies :bouncies :bouncies :bouncies :bouncies :bouncies


Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd;
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don't care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win, it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game.


We're gonna win, Twins
We're gonna score
Crack out a home run
Got a hit hooray
Cheer for the Minnesota Twins today!

Looked like batting practice out there. My Dad's favorite (current) player, Kepler, hit two home runs :smile

Good game, good time (in front of the TV), and some laughs at the cardboard people :lol

They can't do this

Looked like batting practice out there again. Today, the Sox pounded on the Twins :mope

The cardboard people must all have season tickets, since there weren't any new faces or missing faces from last night :rolleyes

They still can't do this

Batting practice, Day 3, and the Twins pounded on the Sox. Nelson Criuz had two home runs, two doubles, and seven runs batted in, and Jake Cave hit a grand slam home run :smile

Three-way tie (2-1) for first place in AL North (Cleveland, Detroit, and Minnsota). Two-way tie for last place (1-2) (Chicago and Kansas City).


The same cardboard people still aren't social distancing or wearing masks, and I bet none of them will get wuhan virus :lol


And they still can't do this

Looked like they turned up the pitching machine a little. Only a few home runs tonight.

The cardboard cutouts in Minnesota are different--giant player heads. I think I Iike the fan ones better. Although it might be kind of intimidating if they had players like Harmon Killebrew behind the plate :lol

The cardboard people in Minnesota can't do this either, especially since they don't have any legs

Looked like they turned up the pitching machine the rest of the way. Only one home run tonight.

Twins are in first place. Second-place Division arch-rival Cleveland Indians come to town on Friday.

Phils played 3 games against the Marlins and haven't played since.

I told my wife that I'm doubtful that they get the 60 games in that they expect.

The "post season" may only be populated by teams not on Covid restrictions.

The Twins almost lost to the Pirates. Twins came back from 4-0. Bottom of the 9th, it was tied at 4-4, and Nelson Cruz drove in a run, so Twins' first walk-off win of the season :dance2 The team celebration around Cruz was no-contact, The Manager had to remind the players, lest exuberance cause the players to forget :rolleyes :bouncies


Forgot to post the games against the Cleveland Indians :oops

Yesterday, the Twins played the Pirates in Minnesota, and today they played in Pittsburgh.
The Twins won both games :bouncies

Since it's a giant :tape2 to format stuff here, even with copy-paste, I'm not flip-flopping visiting/home team positions in the box scores :rolleyes
The first box below is today's game, and the second box is from yesterday.
