Today represents the half-way point of the Twins schedule. The Twins sit currently at 52-28 and the math says (Add the 2, carry the 6, divide the numerator and multiply by 1) this evening represents game 81.

 

I'm still surprised the Twins have 52 wins at this point of the season. I'd have been happy with 51, maybe even 50! But 52? Get out of town...

 

 

The Twins train, despite injuries, continues to roll on and win games. Which depth, as has been pointed out by others, has been key to the Twins continuing success this year.

 

 

Now, the Twins, after playing all day and half the night, move on to Chicago to play the White Sox.

 

 

Hopefully, the Twins shake off the long drawn out game of yesterday and put the hurt on the White Sox.

 

 

*A bit of music for Carole

 

With that, we move on to the 5 QUESTIONS section:

 

1. Berrios: Is Berrios settling back into his groove.

2. Sox: Are they truly getting better?

3. Twins: Are they mainlining coffee in order to stay awake for this game?

4. Errors: Will the Sox continue to trend in a positive direction, for the Twins, when it comes to fielding mishaps?

 

Pitching for the Twins:

 

Jose Berrios

 

Pitching for the Sox: 

 

TBD (Wow, this TBD guy must get DFA'd a lot, because this is the second time the Twins have faced him)

 

5. Play Ball!

Thank you for your patience.

MLB had TBD down as the pitcher of record as I went to hit the "post" button.

This Detwiler kid, not very good. Has made 1 ML appearance since 2016 and owns a 5.5 career K/9 rate.

Jake Cave you have been benched for a left fielder who hadn’t played the outfield since rookie ball how does that sit with you?

He has a 6.21 FIP in 43 AAA innings this year.Offense needs to make this easy for Berrios tonight so he can just worry about throwing strikes, and not striking guys out.

This is almost certainly the worst lineup the Twins have run out this season.

Whenever I hear Funk #49, I always wonder how Kenny Loggins avoided getting sued for ripping it off in Footloose. Especially since it was around the same time Grover Washington, Jr.'s Ghostbusters ripped of Huey Lewis and the News' I Want a New Drug.

4 Sano plate appearances should change that.
