2022 Game Log 84 – Twins at Whities

Twins back at it at the Rate against the stumbling White Sox. It would be nice to keep the boot on Chicago's neck so that they go away quietly this summer, but not so bad that TLR get's fired. It's a fine line to hew.

Chris Archer back up for the Twins and while he rarely if ever gets past the 6th inning, he's been a decent back of the order guy. I just wish the Twins had more front of the order guys in their pitching stable. Kopech on deck for the White Sox and although his win/loss record doesn't reflect it, he's been decent this year with nearly a strikeout an inning and a 1.03 WHIP.

Apparently Josh Winder will be starting. Chris Archer has been scratched. I may add more here if I find out the reason./

First Pitch at 7:10, but it looks like nasty weather heading toward Chicago. This game may be delayed or postponed.

Twins Lineup

    1. Hitting is so hard that any one of us could lob pitches over the middle and get three outs eventually. Trying to think of another sport where that could happen. Emergency goalie I would either save no shots or die. Basketball I would get scored on every time. Tennis I would never get a point.

    2. Me, too. When it happened rarely, it was kind of a cute and fun diversion. Also, the position players used to actually try to pitch. Now, it seems like it happens somewhere a couple of times a week, and they just lob it toward the plate like slow-pitch softball. If that's what they're going to do, I'd just as soon see baseball put in a mercy rule.
