Things to Think About:
1, The White Sox -- I hate them so much... I've thought about them 6 times this morning. As Thought number one this would be the 7th time. The Twins have had to score a lot of runs to keep up with the Sox this series. I don't know if it's the Twins pitching or the White Sox swinging well. Another game today to try and make that determination.
2. Jose Quintana -- I've already done a thing on Quintana. The Thing to talk about with Jose is this... He's been pitching pretty good lately. He's only allowed 11 runs in his last 8 starts. His ERA is down to 3.15 for the year. The combination of Sale and Quintana is looking like a nice left handed pairing. Thank Goodness the White Sox farm system seems pretty dry because it looks like the Sox have a nice starting point with nowhere to go.
3, The Long Ball -- Today the Twins 4 5 6 and 7 hitters are Willingham, Vargas, Colabello and Arcia. That's 4 guys in a row with easy long ball power. In stature... it looks like a formidable group. It just hasn't been that way for our Twins. It was Danny Santana who went deep yesterday. If your baseball team is built with these 4 guys back to back... They gotta hit the ball hard and far sometime. It's what they were built to do. If they don't... It's like using an Elephant to pick up marbles. I'm not an Elephant expert... maybe they do that... I don't know.
4. The Bullpen -- The White Sox have been knocking around our bullpen pretty good. Gardy uses the bullpen every day. The last time a Twin threw a complete game was in 1937. The bullpen needs to sharpen up or the White Sox need to cool down.
5. Medicine -- Been feeling a little better today since the sudden onset of a summer cold on Friday. For a full day... I didn't take anything. I just rode it out. I had heard that laughter is the best medicine. So... I just tried to laugh as much as possible. Saturday I was still feeling run down so I took some medicine and today I'm feeling better. It turns out that laughter is the best medicine besides... you know... actual medicine.
