2022 Game Log 76 and 77: Twins at Guardians

It's a Double Header today citizens! I'm guessing this is a makeup game from some earlier canceled game but not really motivated to confirm.

Game 1 we have Smeltzer v. Plesac and I've been pleasantly surprised at Devin Smeltzer this year. As for Plesac, he exemplifies the "Guardians have lousy starting pitchers but a lights out bullpen" vibe Cleveland has been riding this year. Let's get some early run boys.

Game 1 first pitch at 12:10p

Game 2 is the return Josh Winder who is pitching in the bigs for the first time since May 17. The Guardians throwing out the unfortunately spelled Konnor Pilkington. Also Jorge Polanco back in the line-up.

2022 Game Log 75: Minnesota Twins at Cleveland Spiders

Not sure who thought Minnesota and Cleveland would be duking it out for first place of the division, but here we are. Don't have too much time to go into the importance of these games, but I don't think I have to either.

Sonny Gray* takes the mound against the youngster McKenzie. Hopefully the Twins left their assbats at home. Here's to a good series!

(*Whenever I hear the name Sonny Gray, I sign it to the tune of "Nite And Grey".)

Oh, MLB's free game today for those not in the blackout.

2022 Game Log 69 – Guardians at Twins

Twins and Guardians in the first of 8 games over a 11 day stretch to determine who is can take the reins of the AL Central Division. Cleveland always seems to be competitive even when they dump salary -- bringing in a new stable of pitchers that seem to have a MLB future. Luckily tonight may not be one of those nights as right-hander Aaron Civale on the mound for the Guardians after a stint on the Injured List. Even before his injury, Civale hasn't pitched that great and hopefully Twins bats can take advantage

Joe Ryan up for the Twins as he looks to get back to his pre-Covid form as we head into the the summer section of the season.

Looks like a nice night for baseball with first pitch at 6:40.

2B - Arraez
