We might have gotten a bit of that answer today with the Cubs’ expanded YouTube channel, and it’s incredible.The Cubs relaunched their channel Monday morning with 10 new content series and 17 videos. The videos vary in length from 90-second shorts that include instructions for Cubs-inspired craft projects to 40-minute long documentaries on great moments in Cubs history, like Kerry Wood’s 20 strikeout game, and everything in between. They’ll be dropping new content every Thursday.I spent some time previewing the channel and I’ll share a few of my favorite video links below so you can begin exploring. It was really hard to limit myself to just a few videos.Insider looks for the serious baseball fanIf you’re familiar with my series called Sara’s Snapshots, you’ll immediately understand why I gravitated to a series called “The Breakdown” where you can see Cubs players talk through key moments in games.Check out this 10-minute look at David Bote’s Ultimate Grand SlamTonguelayer profilesPedro Strop is probably the most interesting man in the universe. Admit it, you always wanted to know how Pedro Strop spends the offseason. Me too. Your wait is over:A whole lot of BryzzoI was laughing out loud watching everyone’s newest favorite game show “Bae vs. Ballplayer”where Anthony Rizzo and Jessica Bryant compete to see who knows Kris Bryant better for the grand prize of is a Kris Bryant fleece throw. Just watch, you’ll laugh too:HighlightsThe Cubs have a lot of highlight reel material, everything from magical slides, to Albert Almora Jr. and his defensive wizardry, to videos like the one below that highlights the top 10 greatest comebacks of the Joe Maddon era. I imagine there will be a lot more videos like these:Javy B谩ez and puppiesI’m not really sure what to call this category, but there is a three and a half minute long video where Javy B谩ez answers a kiddo’s questions while he plays with puppies. It is perfect and exactly what I needed today:You really should check out the entire channel. It’s awesome.However , the brilliance of this channel goes far beyond Javy playing with puppies (although seriously, that made my Monday so much better. I imagine it made your Monday better too). The Cubs have clearly set this channel up to celebrate their players’ personalities and some of the behind the scenes highlights of Cubs’ baseball. It is exactly what baseball needs.It feels like every few months there is a serious baseball think piece about the lack of superstars in the game and MLB is on a seemingly endless quest to save seconds in the hopes of solving “pace of play” concerns. I’ve always found this aggravating because shorter intentional walks and a pitch clock never struck me as the keys to helping new fans fall in love with baseball. Javy B谩ez, his magical slides and puppies, on the other hand, just might.I’m already looking forward to Thursday to see what videos the Cubs come up with next. MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — When the time came for Rocco Baldelli to remove Jose Berrios from the game, the new manager of the Minnesota Twins clapped as he reached the mound and extended his right hand for a rare congratulatory shake with his ace-in-the-making.This opening day victory over Corey Kluber and the Cleveland Indians was clearly an occasion to celebrate.Marwin Gonzalez hit a two-run double in the seventh inning , Berrios outdueled Kluber and the Twins gave Baldelli a win in his debut by beating the Indians 2-0 on Thursday to start the season.“Usually you get a fist bump or a ‘good job,’ and then you walk off of the mound, but this was opening day,” Berrios said through the team’s interpreter. “It’s a special day for all of us and the first game for him as a manager. It was emotional out there.”Berrios set a Twins opening day record with 10 strikeouts, with the 24-year-old right-hander picking up where he left off as an All-Star in 2018. The youngest opening day starter for the Twins since Brad Radke in 1996, Berrios allowed just two hits and one walk in 7 2/3 innings with his curveball in prime form. Then Taylor Rogers recorded the last four outs for the save, stretching his scoreless streak to 27 straight innings.“Jose’s effort out there today kind of speaks for itself. It deserved probably more than a handshake ,” Baldelli said. “Probably could have given him a little hug out there, and that probably wouldn’t have done the thing justice, either.”Kluber hardly deserved defeat, after retiring the first 14 batters he faced until Gonzalez drew a walk. Byron Buxton broke up the no-hit bid with a one-out double in the sixth. Then the Twins took the lead in the seventh solely with hits by new players, singles by Nelson Cruz and C.J. Cron and then the game-breaker by Gonzalez. Jonathan Schoop, the fourth member of the lineup making his Minnesota debut, even got hit by a pitch that inning.Gonzalez, the multi-position player who spent seven years with Houston and signed with Minnesota more than a week into spring training, hit a 0-1 changeup from Kluber that landed in left-center.“I threw a lot of good changeups throughout the day today, and that was really the first one that kind of floated on me,” Kluber said, “and unfortunately, it was in a bad spot.”The two-time AL Cy Young Award winner making his fifth straight opening day start Wilmer Difo Jersey , the first in club history to do that since Stan Coveleski in 1921, Kluber finished seven innings with only four hits allowed and 79 pitches. Gonzalez, who’s 10 for 22 with three walks in his career against Kluber, started for Miguel Sano at third base.“Probably the last guy you want hitting off Kluber is Marwin because he’s had so much success, and he rifled that one in the gap,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. “That’s all it was.”MIDDLE MENThe AL Central champion Indians played without star shortstop Francisco Lindor and mainstay second baseman Jason Kipnis, both recovering from strained right calf muscles. Eric Stamets struck out twice in his major league debut, playing for Lindor. Recent addition and seventh-year veteran Brad Miller subbed for Kipnis and also struck out twice against Berrios until a two-out single in the eighth prompted his removal.FOR STARTERSThe start of the season produced all kinds of newness, beyond just Baldelli’s debut in the dugout. The Twins unveiled a new backdrop beyond center field, with 5,700 sea green juniper plants now serving as the batter’s eye . The Indians wore uniforms without the divisive Chief Wahoo logo on them for the first time in 70 years .The first-pitch temperature was 49 degrees for the first March opener at Target Field, where the Twins played their lid-lifter on April 5 last year at 37 degrees.TRAINER’S ROOMIndians: Lindor, who started the season on the injured list with a strained right calf and a sprained left ankle Brian Goodwin Jersey , was headed for a second opinion from Dr. Robert Anderson, an ankle and foot specialist in Green Bay, Wisconsin, who has worked extensively with NFL players.Twins: Sano, who will be out until at least early May while the severe cut near his right Achilles tendon heals, has joined the team and begun off-field workouts. Baseball activities and an eventual minor league rehab assignment will still be a couple of weeks away.UP NEXTAfter a day off, the series resumes on Saturday afternoon. The Indians will send RHP Trevor Bauer, coming off a career-best 2018 season with a 2.21 ERA that was the third best in the majors, to the mound. RHP Jake Odorizzi will start for the Twins.
