Ahh, that bit never gets old... (right? RIGHT!?)
Odoreater's out there tonight, his scoreless streak recently snapped, but has still been more than capable of late. Angels are going with an opener in Cole before they bring in Pena. Hopefully we can make them regret that.
I still feel like the Angels are a better team than their record shows, so I'm hoping for a good series on their turf. It's the Twins' fault for starting to make me expect it.
Liriano vs. TBD*
Opener/Primary or Starter. It may not matter much - Twins bullpen gonna "baseball" like Twins bullpen - For Sept.: sporting a 5.20 ERA & 1.415 WHIP and their lowest SO/BB of any month this season at 1.98.
In other "news" ... as I told eschapp, "I hope this isn't the end."
- Mauer trails Puckett by only 00.1 in career Offensive WAR (52.9 to 53 & 4th and 3rd respectively) in Twins** history,
- Mauer trails Eddie Yost by only .001 in career OBP (.388 to .389 & 5th and 6th respectively) in Twins** history.
*Drafted on Wed., so this is probably determined by now.
