Well, this year is my fourth year of doing game threads. It's been fun and I've truly enjoyed the amount of freedom allowed when writing intros. Admittedly, when it comes to game threads and the Twins, there have been some highs and lows:*
*When in doubt, post video.
Today, though, is a special day, because today is a double header Tuesday. Which means:*
*Not that there's really any such thing as too much baseball. Especially when the Twins win.
In watching the White Sox, it's obvious there's some talent and it will be interesting to see the talent develop over the next few years. Meanwhile, though, the Twins need to show this young Sox team who's the boss:*
Some random thoughts:
Some observations from last night:
1. I think I went through baseball withdrawal.
2. The baseball draft took place. Yay!
3. The Twins didn't play last night.
4. Woot! The Yankees split with the Tigers yesterday.
Some observations from the night before last:
1. Nice to see Dozier Encarnacion the Indians.
2. Yay Walk-offs!
3. Rosario is entertaining to watch, mistakes and all.
4. FRE: The man just goes about his business and gets the job done.
5. Kepler: I really like this kid. Good steady player who looks to be getting better and better.
Pitching the first game of this double header;
White Sox: Lopez
Pitching the second game of the double header:
Twins: TBD (this TBD guy must have quite the arm!)
White Sox: Giolito
Mods: Please note, I may not be able to post the lineups. Also, Baseball Press and mlb.com do not agree as to which Sox pitcher is starting the first game. Of course, since I'm really late with this thread according to Baseball Press, I'm thinking mlb.com is probably correct. We shall see.
