Onelki García against Kyle Gibson
We're headed into the home stretch now. We've all talked about managing expectations this season, but with this soft schedule and the flawed teams in the race, I will be very disappointed if the Twins don't come away with the chance to play the play-in game.
It all starts, as always, with beating teams that you should be able to beat, and the Royals are the epitome of that right now. If you don't recognize the starter for the blue folks tonight, it's because this will be his first start in the big leagues. Good for him. He's still a low-K pitcher who hasn't really stick as a starter, even in the minors. If the Twins can't beat pitchers like Onelki García, then they really don't have much business in the playoffs.
Luckily the Twins are sending out..... Gibson?
Man, why do I always get the Gibson starts.
