I don't honestly know which song this is. It's possible that no one does. It's possible that this is just a sound check. It's pretty sweet, though.
Wake up, everybody. New Taylor Swift dropped.
Not this one, though. This one is a rerelease of a song she did before. She's kind of grabbing a page out of World of Warcraft's playbook and just releasing all her old stuff over again for a variety of reasons.
This song is good, though. You're allowed to like this one.

New Trail of Dead came out this year. It's not my absolute favorite of theirs, but I'm contractually obligated to play you something from it
The new Alvvays record is really, really good. There aren't a whole lot of good live clips from it, yet, but as luck would have it, today's clip was recorded just last night. Thanks, Larry!
Let's get nibbish week started off belatedly, but also properly.
Hey, we've got a bit of a winning streak! Only four games, and against some of the worst teams in the league, but you have to win those games, too.
Archer vs. Otto. Not exactly Drysdale vs. Ford, but alas.
Let's make it five!
This is a game log.
Smeltzer vs Perez
Perez has never posted above 2.3 rWAR in a season. He already has 3.1 this season alone. Let's delay that journey a bit.
Time to get back on track!
The end of this game will mark the halfway point of the season. Bullpen insanity aside (seriously. Falvine needs to fix the bullpen... Like.... Yesterday), it's hard to deny that it's gone better than we expected. The White Sox are hurt and still hilariously managed by Tony LaRussa. The Clevelanders are dangerous, but they don't get to face our bullpen every game the rest of the season. And we've still got this guy...
BYRON BUXTON WALKS IT OFF 🙌

Today, the Sonny Gray takes the mound to try to fend off the Orioles. Gray's been great so far this season, and this kind of looks like a mismatch on paper with Baltimore countering with a not all that good Jordan Lyles. Maybe our lineup doesn't believe is Jeremies. Let's hope.
We're almost through what looked to be the scariest part of the schedule, and the Twins have done alright. Two of three in Toronto, one of three against the Yankees, and now one of one against Tampa.
The best part has been watching the offense come alive against some really good pitching. In the aforementioned games, they've knocked around Gausmann, Tailon, Nestor, and Cole. Those are some good pitchers.
Today, they get to face off against a guy making his 2022 debut. Unfortunately, the Rays get to face off against Chi Chi, which is.... suboptimal. Hopefully Joe Ryan and Bailey Over and Sonny Gray get back soon, because the rotation is in rough shape.
