I got up this morning, thrilled the Twins swept a three game series from Seattle.

 

Then, someone whispered in my ear and said, "Blake. It was a 4 game series and since when was Sunday an off day?" "Oh, and the Twins dropped the last game of the series."

 

"Bummer," I replied.

 

Which caused a bunch of people sitting near me to turn and look at me in a strange manner. I quickly tried to mask the fact I had replied out loud to my inner voice by pretending I was using my cell phone but, that didn't exactly work either because it was then I realized I was sitting in the hotel lobby in my boxers while writing this post. 

 

Traveling across multiple time zones has obviously scrambled what little is left of the aging gray cells.

 

Anyway, the Twins taking 3 out of 4 from Seattle was fun to watch but, now they travel south to take on the Angels. A team that is flawed but has a couple of the most exciting players in baseball, Mike Trout and Ohtani. (no, I'm not going to try and spell his first name)

 

I'm looking forward to this series against the Angels, though, I hope Mr. Trout and Mr. Ohtani to their thing against other teams and not the Twins.

 

Some things to think about:

 

1: Byron Buxton: Finally breaking out?

2. Martin Perez: Looking like quite the find.

3. Jason Casto can actually hit?

4. C.J. Cron. Didn't know who he was when acquired, but do now.

 

 

Pitching for the Twins:

 

Mike Odorizzi

 

Pitching for the Angels:

 

Taylor Cole

 

5. Play ball!

Disclaimer: The management of the hotel would like to apologize to all and sundry about the unfortunate boxer incident of this morning. In fact, we will now add another rule, known as the "Christopher Lloyd" rule when it comes to sitting in the lobby of our hotel. Pant and combing of the hair will be required.

 

 

Sorry for the any inconvenience.

Nice head fake. I was expecting Mike Trout and Tommy La Stella.

Hmm, I wrote this opener after less than 5 hours of sleep and three two? time zone changes, yet it almost makes sense.

I'll take the over on 9 or 9.5 runs.  

 

Twins win 9-5.

None consumed.

 

I'm one of those people who make more sense after I've been drinking.

 

At least, that's what my buddies at the bar said....

Mike, Jake, Mark. All four letter names.

 

What do you expect after 2K miles and very little sleep?

Considering the opener, are we really sure who our team is?
