I hope everyone has had an enjoyable and agreeable Memorial Day weekend. I'm sure there will be plenty of pomp and spectacle during the actual game, but whenever you get a chance today, maybe take a moment and quietly reflect on the holiday and those whose memory it honors.
I was thinking about trying to make yesterday's game in Chicago, but other vague plans (which didn't materialize) and threat of weather kept us away. A shame as it would have been a good one.
Anyway, now that the Twins aren't playing Chicago, I can actually watch them again. Score. They leave the Prairie State with a 4-1 road trip in their back pocket, and six games at home in front of them, where they've enjoyed a .700 record (2nd in the AL).
They'll open up that homestand with 3 games against the 3rd place Red Sox. Someone posted a link recently that mirrored the exasperation this team has been causing me. They're just not supposed to be this good, you know? Regardless, I will continue to cautiously watch, and enjoy the ride.
Happy Memorial Day, you guys.
