This is the time of year when scarcity sets in. You realize that in a fortnight, Twins baseball will be done for the year. Generally this inclines me to watch all the Twins baseball I can get my eyeballs on, but this year I find myself caring less and less. The front office giveth, and the front office taketh away. The Twins send Gibson to the mound, and while we hope for good Gibby today, his best efforts could easily and might well be negated by the bullpen. Jakob Junis takes the hill for the Royals. It will almost be a relief when this season is behind us and we can all focus on curling again. Play ball!
Joe got a double! (that's good)
Everybody else got out without even getting him to third (that's bad)
Ian Kennedy is pitching for the Royals (that's good)
Chase....de Jong is pitching for the Twins (your guess is as good as mine)
Twins pitchers should stop pitching to Salvador Perez. Unless they are intentionally trying to lose.
Game in progress. The Twins, high from their series win over the Evil Empire, lead 2-0.
Just saw a guy walk by wearing a "Bring Back the Trees" shirt. That's a new one. Oh, and I also spotted a Tyny jersey.
Twenty Games left. Dreaded Yankees in town. Beautiful September evening. Baseball. 9/11 Tributes.
Yankees putting up Sonny Gray, who is considered a spot starter, so that the regular starters can get a bit of a breather. Makes sense. Yankees have won 9 straight against the Twins, and are pretty much ensconced into the first Wild Card Slot. Why not use a spot starter for this game?
Tyler Duffy is the Opener for the Twins with Kohl Stewart the Primary pitcher. Stewart did pretty well in this role last week so hopefully Duffy can do his part in the first and second innings.
Game time 7:10p.
Just for fun, I'd love for the Twins to sweep the Yankees here. It won't happen, but isn't it pretty to think so?
Chase De Jong makes his Twins pitching debut today. Ian Kennedy takes the ball for the Royals. Or there's football, if you don't mind mixing sports and politics. Play ball!
I've been severely derelict in my game log creation lately
No reason to step it up just yet.
Berrios on the mound, through a solid inning already.
Enjoy the game!
