I mistakenly labeled my last blog the day-by-day for April 26, but today is the actual 4/26 update.
The Twins had a much needed day off. As I'm sure we're all aware of now, Pitching Coach Rick Anderson had a 20 minute, closed-door meeting with all pitchers and both catchers to discuss the current state of the staff. It's really hard to say how effective these meetings are, but if nothing else, this proves to everyone that the fans are not the only people disgusted by the play of the pitchers, particularly the starting 5-6. They finish their 6 game home stand against the Royals, who after losing 12 in a row, just won the last 2 against Cleveland and come in with a little momentum. Both teams are 5-14, so it's the matchup of the worst AL teams. Yipee!
Down on the farm today Rochester gets swept in their doubleheader, New Britain gets a day off and the two low minor league teams win their games. No spectacular play by any of the big name prospects tonight...
