*Sponsor note: May also be of use to calm some Twins fans.
Now, on to the game itself, but first a word from our sponsor:
*Coming soon to a store near you
The Twins are coming off a tough outing against the Sox, but, the "June Swoon" this year saw the Twins go 15-12, which I suspect is an acceptable outcome, all things considered.
Now, on to Oakland, but first, a brief commercial break:
*Man,I wish the IT department where I work was this good. Oh wait, I am the IT department....
Oakland/Twins series has the makings of a fun stretch of games, and I'm looking forward to seeing how the Twins match-up against Oakland.
With that said, on to our regularly scheduled "5 Thoughts, questions and random musings" section of the Game Thread Series Opener.
But first another word from our sponsor:
1. Odorizzi: All Star!
2. Polanco: All Star!
3. Rosario: Should be an All Star!
4. Cron: Should be an All Star!
*Decided I needed some more music.
5. Play ball!
