This is the city, Cleveland, Ohio. A city unlike any other, in that two titans of baseball will be meeting in a head to head contest. Some may call it destiny, that these two team would meet like this. Others would look to MLB and their scheduling gurus. Either theory is nice, but we deal in facts, just the facts.

 

 

And the facts are: Cleveland keeps trying to catch the Twins, but the Twins, much like Road Runner, seem to find a way to avoid getting caught.

 

 

But, in the end, there can only be two!

 

 

*figuring both teams make the playoffs, natch!

 

Now, for something completely different!

 

 

Okay, maybe not, as it's time for, 5 things to ponder!

 

1. Orange Marmalade or Grape Jelly?

2. Sourdough or English muffin?

3. Scrambled or poached?

4. Bacon or sausage?

 

*Lineups go here!*

 

 

5. Play ball!

Rocco earlier today,"We have been playing this day-to-day for a while now, and that's what we are going to continue to do," Baldelli said. "We're getting closer and closer. ... I'm not sure when we are going to have the entire group back out there playing at the same time. Hopefully, it's a matter of days.----Gonzalez has been hitting since sunday and keeps telling Rocco - Lets go

I woke up with a fear of the Twins not even making the Playoffs. This team has more talent than the Twins of the Puckett/Hrbek days and is a lot of fun to watch, most days! I don't understand how the average couch sitting, beer drinking fan can fall on ice several times a year and are still able to go to work. I can't call in for a month cuz my (insert body part here) hurts. These guys have trainers, massage people, hot tubs, cold tubs, support squirrels..etc and average Joe has a tube of Bengay. Toughen up and at least get into the Playoffs. Is that too harsh? I will calm down once I see Puig!.......uh wait, no. Win Twins and let's do the Bomba hustle tonight! #1 for the food.

It's a bit frustrating, because no lineups for the Twins have been released yet.
