The "spoilers of people we don't totally want to spoil" tour continues!
Tonight, Gant faces off against Cy Young contender Robbie Ray. That doesn't seem to be a good matchup for the home team, but that really hasn't mattered so far against the Jays, much to everyone but New York's chagrin.
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!
Does it feel like the Twins went 4-2 this past week? I guess I kind of recall that they had a free good games, but wouldn't have guessed a .667 record, necessarily. The Twins have largely stabilized, but they obviously need to do a lot more than that to dig out of the hole they flung themselves into.
Today, the hometown nine match up against this same uninspiring, but somehow competitive Cleveland team. The season series is tied so far, so hopefully, King Kenta's comeback from the IL , which has been pretty good so far, keeps on rolling.
