Seems like this should have already happened

Neil Walker Jersey , doesn’t it?"As they usually do, the Twins kicked off TwinsFest 2019 by announcing who they plan to induct into the team Hall of Fame during the 2019 season. You’ve probably heard by now (I mean, I hope you at least read the headline) that Joe Nathan will be this year’s inductee. Former Twins president Jerry Bell will also be inducted, but that’s neither here nor there.Over his seven seasons with the Minnesota Twins, Nathan was a lights-out closer. During that span he ranked third among all relievers in WAR, trailing only the first unanimous Baseball Hall of Fame inductee Mariano Rivera and Francisco Rodriguez (“K-Rod”). Nathan holds the all-time record for saves in a Twins uniform with 260, and quite frankly, was the best reliever the team has ever had.What I want to ask is: why the heck did it take so long to induct Joe Nathan (or as my Mom calls him, “Joe. No, the other Joe.”) into the Twins Hall of Fame?I’m going to be honest and admit I don’t really know how the induction system for the Twins Hall of Fame works. There is some sort of fan voting period that never really seems to do anything. What gives?You may think there is some sort of waiting period after a player retires before he can be inducted, like there is with the Baseball Hall of Fame Adrian Gonzalez Jersey , but I don’t even thing that is true. Case-in-point: Michael Cuddyer retired following the 2015 season, and was inducted into the Twins Hall of Fame in 2017, only two years later. Torii Hunter, who also retired after the 2015 season, was inducted into the Twins Hall of Fame less than a year later in 2016. Hell, Johan Santana was inducted into the Twins Hall of Fame like TEN MINUTES after he retired! Literally. Nathan made his last MLB appearance in the 2016 season, and it took three years for him to be inducted into the Twins Hall of Fame? Why?Furthermore, what about Justin Morneau? Or, gee, I don’t know, Joe Mauer!?!I guess the team likes limiting the number of inductees each year or something to make it special for everyone Jose Bautista Jersey , but I just don’t get it. It seems like there is little rhyme or reason to who is inducted and when. Maybe it’s just me, but I find it odd Nathan had to wait this long, and even more odd that Mauer’s number is going to be retired before the team even puts him in their own Hall of Fame.Anyway, congrats to Joe! The other Joe, I mean. What’s your favorite Joe Nathan memory? Mine is when he took dirt from the Metrodome mound, saved it for a year and a half, and then poured it on the mound at Target Field when he made his first appearance there. So thoughtful. Jennifer Stewart/Getty ImagesThe Colorado Rockies (79-64) will look to continue their recent dominance of the Arizona Diamondbacks (76-68) on Tuesday when they host them again as small home underdogs at sportsbooks in the second game of a key four-game divisional series.The Rockies own a 1.5-game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West, with the Diamondbacks three games back after losing 13-2 on Monday.MLB betting line: The Diamondbacks opened as -119 favorites (wager $119 to win $100); the total is at 10 runs, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.

Greinke is 2-0 with a 2.33 ERA in three outings versus the Rockies this season, and one of those wins took place at Coors Field. Why the Rockies can pay on the MLB linesColorado has more momentum than any team in the division right now and plays the next 12 games against NL West foes, including six more versus Arizona.The Rockies will counter Greinke with Antonio Senzatela (4-5, 4.92 ERA), and he has earned three of his wins at Coors this year. Last time out, the 23-year-old allowed three runs and nine hits in five innings with two walks and six strikeouts against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday Devin Mesoraco Jersey , and Colorado was able to pull off a 5-3 victory. If Senzatelacan avoid pitching worse than that here, the Rockies will have a solid chance to win.Smart betting pickEven though Senzatela has picked up three of his four wins at home, his ERA is 5.04 and opposing hitters are hitting .328 against him there. That is not good obviously, and he is also 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA in two games versus the D-backs this season.This is a must-win matchup for Arizona, so look for the team to back up its status as a road favorite by coming through with a big victory to end its three-game losing streak.
