2024 Game 25: Twins at AAAAngels

Bailey Ober starts against Patrick Sandoval.

At 11-13, with injuries to many key players, and plenty of painful at-bats, this season has probably been a disappointment for most. But for the School of Athens (the Philosofer household) it really hasn't been so bad. Circumstance has us with a new, much larger TV, and somewhat frequent access to the games as the secondary household on a subscription. Add in the fact that Aquinas and Nietzsche both had their best years of baseball last year, and we've got some eager learners in the house. The girls are getting involved too, asking great questions as the games progress. And Philosofette is excited to actually start getting to put names with faces after too many years of not really knowing who the players are.

Throw in Cory Provus' narration and, well, this has been a great year so far. Lots of baseball to go, and hopefully they keep the streak going now that they're not playing the Sox!

2023 Game 127: Minnesota Twins at Milwaukee Brewers

Kenta Maeda
vs
Corbin Burnes

I'm convinced the Twins cannot be more than six games above .500. If they win a bunch, then they will need to lose a bunch to never be too far above .500. They're back to +4 games so a win is again safe.

The extremely short "road" trip ends today. Texas is next on the schedule so they can bank some losses before the Guardians visit.

2023 Game 88: Kansas City Royals at Minnesota Twins

Alec Marsh
vs
Pablo López

March is making his second career MLB start. His first was against the Dodgers and it did not go so well, giving up five runs in four innings. Checking his minor league numbers and while he had decent strikeout (11.4 K/9) and walk (3.9 BB/9) numbers, the ERA was not decent at 5.72 over 245 ⅓ innings, mostly in AA. He's 25 but was drafted in 2019 so lost his first year of MiLB development in 2020. Expect all three true outcomes today as the Twins get a tiny buffer in the "above .500" category.

2023 Game Log 87 – Royals at Twins

Fourth of July! Grab a cold beer, hotdog, drive your Chevy truck to grandmas and go watch some baseball just like Tom Jefferson told you to do some 247 years ago.

Twins play the unfortunately (for today) named Royals at Target Field. Maeda v. Grienke. Can't get any more American that that.
