    With the covid restriction rollbacks just announced, the Twins will be able to have 10k fans in the stadium for the opener.

    It took Donaldson half an inning to get hurt and leave the game...

    It's like a bad April Fools joke.

    The Ballys scorebug works much better in baseball, honestly looks like it was primarily designed for baseball.

    I don't really like it for baseball either. It's super chunky I guess is how I'd describe it? Just so much real estate for not that much information. Plus, maybe I'm trained to look up where it used to be but I don't like looking at the bottom of the screen for the data. All I need is the team names, balls/strikes/runs/inning. The one they had before was just fine. The combo platter of the bug/ticker is an abomination for everything so far IMO.

    Chunky works here... I couldn't think of a way to describe it either but that resonated. Too much going on for me and the bottom right half is insanely obnoxious.

    I am sure that designing this takes a team and months of planning, but I am just confused how this was the best option they came up with.

    God I hate baseball nowadays.

    Berrios with 0 hits, 0 walks, 12 strikeouts, 84 pitches through 6 innings and they pull him.

    Imagine the Twins pulling Jack Morris in the 6th inning of game 7 in '91...

    I wish he would've been doing the game. Could've been funny.

    Sounds like I missed a pretty crazy basketball game.

    Legendary from the Minnesotan. Probably the best CBB game in years.

    I love the Gonzaga Coach’s reaction, like “well, at least we won, but on a last second bank shot”.

    It'd be acceptable if Rocco was a good game manager in addition to load management and he was able to take us over the hump. But, he's not.

    Buxton leaves after first plate appearance. Took 2.5 games for Donaldson and him to get hurt again. Buxton was our best hitter through the first few games.

    Thought I heard them say “non COVID illness”.

    How good is Luis Arraez? Got to keep his bat in the lineup. Rocco with several bonehead calls today. This guy is so overrated.

    I bought an Arraez jersey last summer and I am very proud of it, BUT I was even more proud after he bat-flipped a walk today. Baller move.

    Rocco displaying the definition of insanity once again versus left-handed pitching. Same shit, different year. Sano is atrocious against LH pitching and is about set the SO record.

    Rocco is so overated. Dumb challenges. Boneheaded bullpen moves. Trusts charts and analytics instead of baseball instincts. Shave that f***ing ugly stubble off your face.
    I love the little pitching coach. Wasn't he in the Wizard of Oz?

    Wes Johnson is the epitome of the modern pitching coach.
