Game 89. Twins @ Astros

The second half begins! The Twins are in the hunt for a division title or a wild card slot, but I am thinking there is not enough starting and relief pitching to get the Twins there. I know, a scorching take right there.

One pitcher I trust is Jose Berrios. He starts tonight so thats good. But the Twins are playing the best team in the AL, the Houston Astros.

Maybe we'll sweep the 'Stros like they swept us at Target Field!

Game 86 Twins hosting O’s

With the win last night, it guarantees the Twins will be at or above .500 at the All Star Break.  I would have never guessed that during Spring Training.

Felix Jorge starts tonight. He showed enough in his last start to at least get a second and third try. Kevin Gausman o for the O's. In  his last 5 starts against the Twins, he has pitched 24 innings and surrendered 18 runs. I like our chances for a W tonight!

Game 71 – Twins at Cleveland

Here we are again, another big series against the Clevelanders. Lets hope for a better result than last weekend.

Meija goes for the Twins. He was ok his last start, but it was cut short because of rain. Trevor Bauer for the C's. He was pretty good against the Twins on Sunday.

The Twins beat writers all tweet that Miguel Sano has a sinus infection and can come off the bench if needed.

 

Game 57. Twins at San Francisco

The Twins started this west coast trip tied for first place.  After 7 games they are 1.5 games up. It sure doesn't seem like they have been playing winning baseball, but here we are.

Ervin Santana wil start for the Twins trying to get back to winning ways after a really bad performance last outing. For Ray Matt Moore goes for the Giants.

 

Fun fact! This will be the first time Santana has pitched against the Giants.

Game 51. Twins at Anaheim

The Angels mind as well be called the Twins of the West. FIVE former Twins are on the roster: Ben Revere, Shane Robinson, Ricky Nolasco, Alex Meyer, and Delios Guerra. And you know what, there is not a lot of hand wringing and blog columns upset over not having those players. Ok, maybe Alex Meyer because the Twins have no pitching right now.  There will be no "David Ortiz should still be a Twin" column for any of those players.

Kyle "Im surprised he is still a Twin and not with the Angels" Gibson on the mound for the locals,  JC "not Romero" Ramirez for the Angels.
