Game 37 (and 38!): Tigers @ Twins – Let’s Play (Another) Two!

At the risk of extreme repetition...

This team is FUN.

Great pitching, great hitting... Byron Buxton not completely sucking. It's been a delight.

You know what would be even more delightful? Another doubleheader sweep.

Pineda and Stewart haven't exactly been aces, but if you're going to toss them out there, you may as well do it against the Tigers.

2019 Game 24: Orioles @ Twins

That Houston series was "disappointing", per se, but after that first game, it just seemed like they let some good opportunities pass then by. The bullpen looked weak and the Twins' aggression at the plate began to look very exploitable.

As it turns out, facing the Orioles is the best medicine. Last night, Alex Cobb pitched like he's trying to top Bert's home run record by the All Star break, and the Twins took advantage. At the very least, this seems like a team that can beat a lesser opponent.

Today's opposing pitcher, Dan Straily, has been having any the same level of success as Cobb has -- that is to say, none at all. Hopefully, our batters can take advantage of that and hopefully Berrios has a tighter outing today than he has in his last few.

This seems like a very winnable game. Here's hoping it sticks to the script.

2016 Games 17 & 18: Twins @ Orioles – Let’s play two!

The Twins are coming off losing a fairly disappointing series against a very beatable Blue Jays team. Every game felt winnable, but they were only able to seal the deal once.

THANKFULLY, the Orioles seem as beatable, if not more so.

Let's see if Polanco can't continue his crazy run, and if they can't bring out the brooms for a doubleheader sweep today. Continue reading 2016 Games 17 & 18: Twins @ Orioles – Let’s play two!

2019 Game 5: twins @ royals

Sorry if I'm stepping on any toes. I figure that we're all still getting into the swing of things here.

We're getting a bit of an "off day" lineup, with Cave, Garver, Austin, and Adrianza all in the lineup. The thing that matters most, though, is that La Tortuga is playing third.

Kyle Gibson will try to keep the momentum going on the way to hopefully continuing the bit of a breakout he experienced last season. It would be huge if he was able to do that.

 

2019 Game 2: Clevelanders @ Twins

Baseball is back, everyone!

I'll admit, I've got my hopes set high this year, and Cy Berrios did nothing to dampen those hopes with his record breaking start on Thursday.  I think that this is a team that can hang with what looks to be a punchless Cleveland lineup (seriously, pinch hitting for your number three hitter?) and make some noise.

The home team looks to keep it going by sending Odorizzi to the mind for game two. I'm still not sure what to think of the Odor. Will he be pleasing? Will he be pungent? We'll know soon enough.

Parquet Courts “Almost Had to Start a Fight / In and Out of Patience”

I've not really been a huge Parquet Courts fan until this year. Wide Awake changed all that. Every song is just so... Energetic (and danceable, which Newbish appreciates).
