2019 Game 139: Minnesota Twins at Boston Red Sox

Berríos
vs
Rodriguez

The Twins are 9-1 over their last ten games. They're 19-11 against the AL East (thanks Baltimore) and now 2-2 against the Red Sox.

Berríos had an extra day off after an improved, but still okay, start. He lost his start against Boston in June, in the midst of regular bullpen implosions. That time was because the Twins forgot how to score for the series.

Let's guarantee at least a season split with another AL East team. Sure, they aren't going to make the postseason, but those are the teams you need to beat.

  1. I don't understand why Berríos is still sent out for another inning to reach 100 pitches. The team has 36 players now, there's zero worry about bullpen workload. Berríos is working through his struggles, no need to do it while tired too.

    1. I dunno. Rocco seems like the kind of manager who’d be interested in getting his younger players the ‘experience’ of pitching/playing at a historic (and mentally challenging?) ballpark like Fenway for his future use in pacifying their jitters.
