Turnstile – Blackout

My actual two favorite songs of the year ("Hardline" by Julien Baker and "4Runner" by Rostam) have already been played on the site, and impossibly, there does not exist any good live footage of "Great Mass of Color" by Deafheaven. So I'm going hardcore.

Glow On was a great album. Album opener "Mystery" lights a fuse, and "Blackout" comes along with the inevitable explosion.

Game, the penultimate: twins @ royals

Well, this season didn't quite go the way we planned.

I figured that this was a 95 win team, and we're two games from an assured last place finish and most likely a number 8 draft pick in 2022. Disappointing.

There have been plenty of glimmers of hope for the future -- Buxton finally looking like a genuine superstar chief among them, but let's not try to put any perfume on this stinker. Not paying extra this spring for a TV plan that included any Twins games looks like one my best financial decisions ever at this point.

Here to close the door just a little bit further is Griffin Jax. There have been reasons to believe in certain starters this year, but I'm not sold on Jax. Who knows, though? Maybe tonight is the start of a new and improved era of Jax domination!

Well, hell. I'm fired up now. Let's do this, Griffin!

Game 129: brewers @ twins

I'm honestly surprised that this game is going off on time. It was pretty rainy a couple hours west in my neck of the woods a few hours ago. Regardless, we press on.

Charlie Barnes starts tonight. He strikes me as maybe the tenth best starter to log a start for the Twins this year, but it would be nice if he could do just enough to support a lineup that suddenly looks reasonably major league capable.

Buxton's back, that's good enough for me. Go twins!
