Podcast and Sleep

The Twins won their two-game series against Cleveland. After getting rained out on Friday night, the Twins crushed Cleveland 10-3 on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday, it was a reversed home run call on Michael Brantley that proved to be the difference. That, and a big two-run double by Jason Kubel off of lefty Rafael Perez.

Either way, after a week of weeping and gnashing of teeth, it is important to note that the Twins are 5-2 in their last seven games and playing much better. They aren’t playing perfect, but you can see some improvements. It’s great to see Justin Morneau back in the lineup and contributing. It will be good to get Delmon Young back as well.

After a busy weekend with too much driving and too much working, I am exhausted, or not feeling well, or both. So, I’m going to get some sleep. Please be sure to check out the SethSpeaks.net Sunday Night Twins Podcast, especially if you haven’t before. In it, I discuss a ton of Twins-related topics like the past week, winning, the upcoming week, Mauer, Morneau, Kubel, Nathan and much, much more. Let me know what you think. I appreciate any and all feedback. Let me know what you’d like from these shows.

Also, Tonight (Monday) is another Twins Minor League Weekly at 10:00. Tuesday nights are the SethSpeaks.net Weekly Minnesota Twins podcast, and then Thursday night is another Twins Minor League Weekly episode.  

Feel free to leave your thoughts, questions or comments.

    It is nice the Twins are winning again. It proves they are not in decline. Unfortunately it also proves that while they can beat any team in the central the east still has their number. It is still early but it feels like we are stuck in the same pattern as last year.

    The Twins should have had one or more runs earlier in the game Sunday. Casilla again struck with a fundamental mistake…running through a clear stop sign from Steve Liddle. His run would have made it at least 3-0 in what could have been a bigger inning. Morneau’s mistake had to be equal responsibility with Liddle as he changed from waiving him home to stopping him late and his signal wasn’t clear.

    Gardy has to have about had it with Casilla’s mistakes. Can you recall how many losses he has been the primary culprit in losing? I know it is at least a couple?

    Maybe it is just a sign that they aren’t well coached in general. They don’t have a plan, the players don’t understand the plan. I don’t know, but if it happens over and over, and with different 3B coaches, there is more at work here than just the 3B coach.

    Nice to see some runs and some wins. 86 wins.
