For some reason, the Twins merit one of the two late games tonight, so here’s hoping we can enjoy three innings of Twins baseball before we all inevitably switch over to the much more important and intriguing Yankees-Red Sox game. Cole DeVries, who has a last name that is pronounced annoyingly, faces Roy Oswalt, who also has a last name that’s pronounced annoyingly. And the similarities don’t stop there! Actually, they probably do.
It hasn’t been much of a first half, but I’ll agree with other Citizens of late…it isn’t like last year, where the team looked directionless and pathetic in the second half, and it hasn’t become a chore to watch my favorite team play my favorite sport. Though they’re behind last year’s pace by a game or two, this team isn’t likely to once again put up a historically awful final couple of months leading into a 99-loss campaign.
Thanks for another enjoyable half-season of game logs, Citizens, and SBG: as always, thanks for making this community possible. Bring this one home, gents. I have a night shift that will rob me of my rightful Sunday ballgame.
