Game 26: Twins @ Mariners

I'm stuck painting my office all day, so I'm going to quarter bake this game log. It's too bad, really, because after last night, it feels like our favorite team deserves half baked, at least. What can you do, though?

Perennial Cy Young candidate (and one time winner) Felix Hernandez takes on perennial DFA candidate (and current 2-0 staff ace) Jason Marquis. On the surface, this looks like a tough matchup. On all the other levels, it looks like one, too.

So, um... Go Twins! I'm going to go put on a second coat.

Game 21: Twins vs. Royals

This is a game log. It is a place for you to share concise, often humorous thoughts while you watch the Twins lose.

It is customary for each game log to have an introduction, wherein that log's author discusses various things about the team. I am currently suffering from a profound lack of motivation in this regard. Therefore, while the log will still be created, you are going to have to pretend that I said something profound like "Oh, that Joe Mauer guy is pretty good, right?" or "This is all Casilla's fault".

Jason Marquis - (1-0, 7.15 ERA, 6.11 FIP, 3.75 xFIP) will pitch for the Twins.
Bruce Chen - (0-2, 2.52 ERA, 3.61 FIP, 3.92 xFIP) will pitch for the Royals.

Enjoy.
