Baseball is a cruel mistress and I just don't know if it’s even worth it anymore. I was so excited to be healthy for the start of the season and to be in the major league rotation. Now I feel like my Career is at a crossroads. I know it's just a forearm strain but what if I never heal? I am doing my rehab and the trainer says I'm doing good. I've heard that Coach Gardenhire wants me back in the rotation because he "likes my stuff." But this is so hard.

Game 139: Clevelands vs. Twins

Cole De Vries takes on Zach McAllister

This sounds like a game that will not be particularly fun to watch for fans of either team. Let's talk about something else, instead. Food, maybe? I know we're big into health again, but I've noticed a distinct lack of culinary pornography around here lately. This saddens me a bit. What's the most delicious thing you've crafted in the past month? What's the most delicious thing you've eaten in the past month?

Twins game viewing optional.

Game 132: Twins in KC 7:10pm..check that 3:10PM Saturday

*edit* this game has been postponed until Saturday at 3:10pm.

the remnants of Hurricane Isaac are making its way up the central US, giving places like Arkansas, Missourri, Kansas, and Illinois some much needed rain. The forecast for KC tonight calls for rain, so this game might now get underway.

The Twins have been brutal this month, posting a 9-19 record with 1 game to go. This month is an improvement over last year where the Twins went 7-21. And the Twins have gained 4 games on Cleveland as they have only 5 wins in August.

Cole DeVries is scheduled to start for the local 9. DeVries has this Brad Radke thing going this year, giving up 16 home runs, and allowing 17 walks. Something to watch at the end of the year: will he give up more homeruns than walks batters.

The Royals will trot out a dude named Will Smith, who looks like a Twinsesque pitcher with a low walk rate, low k rate, and a high ERA.
