Today, I will not be cheerily greeting you. I’m shocked and incensed at the downright offensive play of our hometown nine over the past two weeks, and I can not declare this a happy Friday unless the Twins win tonight.
Don’t get me wrong: I may be in the minority, but I do think the Twins will be okay. 90% of the season remains. Byron Buxton is the league MVP currently. Jose Berrios has been at his best all year. Nelson Cruz remains an ageless cyborg sent to earth to crush baseballs. Jorge Polanco is showing signs of life at the plate.
However: I am shocked and incensed at the downright offensive play of our hometown nine. There is no other words (besides comedic, maybe) to describe the bush league defensive display from the Twins in the 10th inning on Wednesday. After two weeks of poor hitting, poor health, and poor relieving, perhaps we’ve finally reached rock bottom. Perhaps not. In any case, I would imagine there are some strong feelings floating around in our readership. This is the play for you.
Game threads are not a nice place when people are angry and negative. So rather than having that emotional vomit spill out all over the game threads this weekend, let it all out here. I want to read your rants, your (properly censored!) expletives, your lamentations, and your screams. For this to work properly, however, I need you to abide by a few rules:
- Keep in mind the Community Guidelines, or you will be sent to the TJ’s office
- Rant about the Twins, NOT at fellow commenters
- Do not take this as encouragement to post negative and angry comments on other posts of the site
Alright, let’s hear it! And as always, a (begrudging) “Go Twins!”
