2023 Game 116: Minnesota Twins at Detroit Tigers

Bailey Ober
Alex Faedo

Ober's quality start run came to a crashing end in July, lasting only four innings and giving up six runs. His start last week against Arizona didn't qualify due to pitching five innings but his game score of 50 is exactly average. Ober's only start against Detroit fit the quality start metric exactly with six innings and three runs allowed. That would have worked on Monday but only Haddix perfection had a chance to earn a win yesterday.

Alex Faedo might be the guy to fix the offense. A former first round pick, he finally made it to the majors last year. He has a career 5.70 ERA, and 4.70 FIP, in 89 ⅓ innings for a negative WAR but good for him to make the majors at 26. He faced the Twins once last year, earning a no decision with two runs given up in five innings that the Tigers eventually won 3-2.

Game 79 – Twins at Tigers – Morning Baseball!

Twins baseball before noon for those in the Central time zone.  I assume Gophers football has a game at Comerica later today or something.

Bailey Ober takes on Michael Lorenzen.

The best Tiger player for your future Immaculate Grid constructions is probably Jake Marisnick who's on his 8th big league team this season.

If we lose this series to the Tigers on top of the one last week ... well, that won't be great.

Game 28: royals @ twins

This series marks the beginning of a very important stretch of games for the Twins. We're two games into a ten game stretch of games against our central division rivals where the only opponent with a winning record is....well, nobody. It's the Royals and the Clevelanders and the utterly terrible White Sox. Then things toughen up against the Padres and the surprisingly beatable Dodgers.

All the time, this is our time. 7 wins in these 10 games won't be enough. These are three of the four worst offense in baseball (the other, of course, is the Tigers). Allowing so much as a runner in scoring position against these teams is nearly unforgivable.

You hear that, Over? I want a perfect game today. A. PERFECT. GAME. Get it done.
