So ... looking at the next game ... the Tigers' starter is 0-1, 20.75 ERA, 1 K ... 

That seems decidedly Tiger-esque this season.

So, he'll throw a shutout?

Come to think of it… I had a grilled chicken salad for lunch too! I smell a trend… and possibly chicken shortages in Twins Territory soon

Ugh! Between no baby formula and recalled peanut butter . . . what are parents feeding their kids?? Naps?

Hungry for a win?? You take it back!

I'm always hungry for a win.  Even right after a win. 

I figured the cheapshot about him tossing a shutout was the jinx reverser, but I'm no expert on these things.

"I’ve felt like Jax is far less effective in multiple inning appearances, so I just took a look and he’s given up 7 runs in his multi inning games vs just two in times he goes one inning"

Including today Jax has been 15 games.  6 games he has pitched one inning or less and given up 2 runs, in 2 games, over 5.1 innings for an ERA of 3.38.  9 games he pitched more than one inning and given up 7 runs in 3 games, over 19 innings for an ERA of 3.32.  He had one bad multi inning game where he gave 4 runs in 2.1 innings against Cleveland. (Twins were ahead 11-2 before he gave up any runs).  To me it looks like he is just as effective in long relief as he is in short relief.

Barring rain, Friday's game in Toronto will mark the 1/3 point of the 2022 season. Crazy

 

If they just want to call the season now and give the Twins the 3rd seed and send the Angels on over to Minnesota for a three game series, I'd be OK with that.

Even right now with half the roster on the IL or Covid list?

Yeah. I'll take the Angels now, over risking the Blue Jays later. 

Or you know, falling out of playoff race all together.

I guess that after being presented the alternatives, I agree with your assessment.
