A look at how some of the Twins minor leaguers are doing.
Big Pelf (5-12, 5.31 ERA) vs. Quintana (7-6, 3.56 ERA)
I check the standings when I remember to prepare a game log to figure out which game number to put in the title, and its been an increasingly depressing activity this season. Fortunately, there's the Pale Hosers manning the bottom of this division. I was contemplating putting up the magic number for the Twins to hold off the Sox to avoid finishing last in the AL Central, but there's nothing magic about it so I decided not to.
Anywho, I presume Mauer is being shut down for the rest of the season meaning the lineup is still a diminished Willingham and a bunch of "young" guys, so that's fun.
What is actually fun is the reaction down here to the Badgers losing this weekend. People take this crap way too seriously around here and get really deluded about things. Its both humorous and insufferable at the same time.
