No reason the offense doesn't score 7-8 runs tonight. Turnbull is not a good pitcher.

Gonzalez scratched with "oblique tightness". Turtle at first base. This worries me.

He's not terrible, probably better than every starter they faced in the KC series (which isn't saying much).

Today, the magic number stands at 3. Not 4, not 2, and 5 is right out. The number is three and three shall be the number.

 

 

*I put in the whole thing because I can relate to the "soiled armor" bit what with some of the things that happened during the season.

 

Now, the Twins head into Detroit and the Twins faithful are looking at this series, knowing things are counting down to the post-season.

 

 

But, we are not counting our playoffs before they hatch, are we?

 

 

The Twins head into Detroit and, if the past is anything to go by, they will exact their revenge on Detroit. (Well, okay, the Twins have been exacting revenge on Detroit all year....)

 

And, with that, we go to stuff to think about. (Yeah, as if I really put a lot of thought into some of this stuff. Oh crud, I typed that out loud, didn't I?)

 

1. Detroit: Rebuilding or looking to rebuild the rebuild?

2. Twins: Can they beat the Yankees in home runs this year?

3. Bomba squad: Can they keep on bombaing?

4. Ginger or MaryAnne?*

 

*Just had to mess with ya'll a bit!

 

Lineups:

 

 
 
5. Play ball!

 

1. Detroit. It's a rebuild on a rebuild. Like my Buick

2. Twins will beat the Yankees on homers during the playoffs when it actually matters.

3. The Twins will always be the Bomb in Bombas. 

4. Ginger in Georgia, MaryAnne in Maryland...

No not terrible by any stretch and I'd bet he'd have better stats on the Twins or any other contender, but still 3-15, 4.66 ERA, 1.4 WHIP doesn't scream average to me.

A 4.66 ERA basically means inconsistent. 

 

 

A 4.66 ERA over a season will mean he occasionally has a good game and be problematic for the opposing team. 

 

If he was bad every time he took the mound his ERA would be 26.75. BTW... The guy with the 26.75 ERA... that's the one I want the Twins to Face.

Just enjoy the ride, no reason to get anxious before we even get started!

I'm with the SwainZag! There's always time to panic.

I'm surprised it wasn't. The CF had to pick it up. 

 

That's a tough corner in Detroit.

Those last two flyball outs looked like pop ups coming off the bat but drifted fairly deep. 

 

The Home Run might be a factor.
