    2018 AL Central catch all thread

    Twins starters pitched 21 innings and allowed zero runs to the Orioles.

    Byron Buxton has a 3 HR game. The dude's bat has been on fire this month, along with elite defense.

    The way the AL Central is going, the Twins will probably fall out of first, but still hand around until August. That bullpen is as stinky as the Tigers.

    The Minnesota Twins are going to be in first place on Memorial Day. That is nuts.

    Twins sweep a rain shortened series and the Royals end April 7-16. In fact the Twins have been them all five times this year. The Royals clanged balls off their gloves all weekend and Miguel Sano killed them. The 2017 Royals almost look like the 2016 Twins.

    The Twins (of all teams) absolutely torched Rangers pitching this year Houston only 6.5 games back.

    The Twins have only 14 wins but have hanged an L on King Felix, Dallas Kuechel, and Corey Kluber's record this year. Its nuts.

    The Twins won a game because of this (not quote sure how to embed tweets so here is the link)

    QUOTE (OmarComing25 @ May 2, 2016 -> 11:33 PM) Twins crush Keuchel, who isn't getting the borderline calls he was getting last year, so he's walking everybody this year. Astros are screwed. That umpire was awful. In the 5th, Jose Berrios threw a curve right down the middle of the plate and he called it a ball. The catcher got pissed and was tossed out of the game. Berrios threw the same pitch in the same place the next pitch and was called a strike.

    The Twins stink right now. But one thing to watch: Joe Mauer is back to being Joe Mauer (.321 /.453 /.440 /.893 slash line coming into todays game). The ball sounds better coming off his batt and even his outs are well struck (just missed a HR today and has had a couple robbed by OFers). Its being two seasons since concussions ended his catching career and its just nice to see his game back to somewhat normal.

    QUOTE (fathom @ Apr 16, 2016 -> 03:56 PM) Park just hit an insane blast. Twins looking to win again. I can recall Jim Thome hitting a ball where Park hit that one, but thats about it. Park has legit power. Its been a struggle to make contact.

    not even a week into the season and the Twins are already eliminated from the playoffs.

    Tigers Sign SP Mike Pelfrey

    If any reporter has the words "innings eater" is their story obviously did not watch Pelfreys starts. Like this reporter 5 innings max guy. Although, he may fare better in Detroit where their infield defense is a lot better than the Twins. But 2 years $8mil per...yeesh. They probably could have done better.
