Hey, it's been awhile since we did this!
In June of 1977, just days before moving to Minnesota, I saw Lynyrd Skynyrd play at the old Mile High Stadium, one of the Colorado Sunday concert series gigs from back in the day. The one I attended also had The Marshall Tucker Band, Heart (they played two songs and in the middle of the third their gear went dead, sabotaged by another band's roadie), Atlanta Rhythm Section, The Outlaws, Foreigner, Dickey Betts and Great Southern, and Rusty Weir. My friends and I drove up to Denver the night before and slept in a park with a thousand other kids a few blocks from the stadium, across the street from a police station. The cops were pretty cool about the whole thing. Gates opened at noon and the music started about an hour later. Skynyrd came on as the sun was starting to set and just blew everyone away. That weekend was the crown jewel of my high school party days, and the last time I've seen three of the four friends who went, so it's a fairly treasured memory. Four months later I was trying to figure out my new life in L'Étoile du Nord when a plane crash killed Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines and Cassie Gaines. So it goes.
Another Tuesday Another Pelfrey (3-6, 6.12 ERA) vs. Axelrod (3-4, 4.26 ERA)
So the Twins and the White Sox both stink, although the Twins stink a game and a half better. Hopefully, Pelfrey can continue with his recent decent pitching tonight, although I would still prefer to see someone like a Kyle Gibson starting games for the Twins, but that might just be me.
I don't really know anything about Axelrod. A quick look at his numbers show a guy who is meh to crappy, and who's not striking out as many guys this year as last. So that's good news for the Twins. Hopefully, the Twins can add a little space between them and the dumpster.
