2015 Game 26: Oakland Athletics vs. Minnesota Twins

It's official, I have absolutely no idea what to think of these guys.

I don't really have a lot of time here, but that's okay because I don't really have a lot to say (socaltwinsfan created a good case for healthy skepticism here). With help from a thoroughly enjoyable drubbing of the White Sox, the Twins are a winning team for the first time in almost a year. At this point, I'm not going to think too much about it and just enjoy.

We close out the longest homestand of the year with a visit from the scuffling A's. Maybe we can even get a few more ticks above .500. Hughes, in search of his first all mighty W, starts off on the mound tonight.

    1. Or could he.

      Period ERA IP HR BB SO
      2014 April 5.14 28.0 3 6 26

      1. Well that makes me feel a little better. I completely forgot he got off to a bad start last year like that.

  1. I guess I don't need to hurry home to see the rest of this game, judging by the comments.

  2. Hunter has 3 HRs this year, two have been 3-run shots the other a 2-run blast.

  3. Heh, on Star Wars night, Cory says Dazzle and he are just a couple of Spaceballs. Then proceeds to gush over Spaceballs (Dazzle's never seen it).

  4. Doesn't really matter, but I was wondering if ii actually ran that DP ball out, could he have been safe?

    1. I only saw the bottom of the 8th and top of 9th. I had two weeks of GoT to get caught up on.

      162 games/season v. 10 episodes/season. There's plenty of baseball after GoT is over.

    2. I have no good excuse. I finished putting together the crib just in time to watch the bottom of the 6th, then got cajoled into watching the penultimate episode of Revenge.

      My word, that show is dumb.
