been a full 24 hours now, since the team, mlb, or any of the team's beat writers have shared any news or updates on the Twins Covid-19 situation.

mlb seems to think Shoemaker is pitching the first game tomorrow, but otherwise knows nothing else about either game (well, maybe game time... and location)

So says a Rosenthal tweet, per mlbtraderumors, and says we are on track for tomorrows games.

 

(i always wondered whether people were saying untracked or on-tracked...)

 

but all that is news, which means we have wandered off topic, and must find another example to consider to answer the question in this topics subject.

If any team needed a few unplanned games away from baseball, it was this team. I was getting ill watching them.

I don't read the Onion enough...

I also missed my chance to proclaim my '80s heritage by pointing out the current lack of Gary Gnu in these proceedings.

Now he is present in the discussion, the answer is definitve yes.

Rocco's probably too busy getting his thoughts together about the Chauvin trial. The Falvinelli 2000 has already spit out the Covid test results plus the lineups, allowed pitch counts, bullpen moves and players in need of coddling for both games today.

Gotta keep your bullpen on their toes. Who knows when they'll be called upon to protect a lead...

The Twins were cleared to play two today with the A's and traveled to Oakland yesterday according to Do-Hyoung Park.

No news on any roster moves.

Since it's a DH, I assume they get a 27th man.As they've already announced the starters (according to what I saw on ESPN this morning), I have to wonder if it will be AK again.

I thought I read that AK was not on the taxi squad, so I don't know about that. I guess whoever they pick for the 27th man will depend on who else besides Garlick is going to the COVID IL.

I mean, they called him up for the DH last Wednesday--I would be surprised if upon sending him back down they also took him off the taxi squad.If he is indeed not on the taxi squad, then possibly 27th men don't need to be on the taxi squad?I suppose stranger things than jettisoning your top-prospect-that-you-may-have-called-up-this-week-anyways from the taxi squad have happened, I would just be surprised.

I think the location of the game is also a factor. I don't know if Kirilloff was ever on the taxi squad. I think they may have just called him up for last week's DH because they were at home and Kirilloff was just in St. Paul, whereas calling him up today would require him flying out here for the day, which I'm not even sure is allowed due to COVID protocols.

No runs is bad news. Doubleheader shutout sweep. Doesn't get any worse than that. Sano line is .100 putting Mendoza to shame. It really does seem like this is just a very poor hitting team with no end in sight. One possible saving grace is that pitching does seem to dominate league wide and most games are low scoring. One minor league even considering moving the mound back 1.5 feet to give hitters a better chance. When a team relies on home runs for most of its scoring and doesn't hit home runs........
