I suppose I shouldn't be surprised thta looking at the pitching matchups, things look a little bleak in all 3 games. Fortunately, there is also offense to consider. For instance, despite the Twins sending out a 6.12 ERA tonight, they're favored today (very slightly) by Vegas.

I think that Pelfrey's recent outing factor into that as well.

He does seem to be getting stronger.

And the White Sox are not exactly a major offensive force.

You should type that in size 7 font to match how I feel about the White Sox.

I have to Coach a game tonight so I'll miss most... If not all... Of the game thread...

Chief... You can have my proxy to post for me... Ashbury didn't do a good job last time.

Remember to throw in a Glormism when Glorm finally arrives.

I thought I did an outstanding job that night. I increased your prestige by not posting very much in your name.

MLB.tv free game o' the day, though I'm sure the blackout rules still apply so, most likely, it doesn't help many.

Not to worry, bri. I'll get you banned by bottom 5, at the latest.

Hammer's back in the lineup and gets a single. Hope this means the R&R he got is all he needed.

I had a good feeling when I saw that Plouffe was coming up with three runners.

OK, Arcia...this running past third and trying to score an unexpected run is only fun when it actually works. Nice try, though. I wonder if he thought the ball got through?
