Game x: (name of team) @ (name of team)

Well, last night sure (went well/didn't go well). That brings our losing streak to (Graham's Number), so I guess that's at least notable.

Furthermore, it's unfortunate that (star player) got hurt when he (performed basic baseball action). I imagine the Twins training staff will call it a (minor, non-threatening injury) for a few weeks until forced to admit that is actually a (year ruining injury). Sign him up for Tommy John!

Tonight, (name of pitcher) takes the mound for the Twins, he has (colorful euphemism for "lost") his last (ω1) starts, generally through a combination of (near pathological lack of strikeouts/unhealthy obsession with giving up home runs) and (poor timing/what can only be described as "Tsutomu Yamaguchi" level bad luck). Maybe he can pull it off? More likely, his mound opponent (AAAA Scrub) will dominate our lineup. But hey, that's why they play the games on the field. 

Game 36: Twins hosting Rays. 7:10pm.

The Twins are coming of a disappointing series in Detroit, only winning 1 of 3 games. Overall I would say the season is a bit surprising on the good side. It just may by one of those deal where Detroit is a real bad matchup for us and they are going to win 14 games against us ever year.

The Twins come home to play Tampa. Phil Hughes starts for the Twins. Jake Odorizzi throws for the Rays. Odorizzi has an interesting transaction history as he has been part of two mega deals in 5 years. First the Zach Grienke to the Brewers trade (a trade decidedly in favor of the Royals) and the second trade was the Wil Myers/Ordorizzi to the Rays and the Royals get James Shields/Wade Davis. That trade seems to have worked out for both teams (Myers being spun off tot he Padres this past off season). Further down the road, it will be interesting to make a Odorizzi Trade Tree.
