Nothing Much Changes (And That’s Not A Good Thing)
This past weekend, I was unfortunately unable to watch much (i.e. any) Twins baseball, thus I really don’t have any specific comments about the games. On Friday, the first scheduled contest in Baltimore was rained out. I was at a wedding during the Saturday doubleheader, but heard on the radio on the drive home that the Twins scored 12 runs in both games. Today, I watched the Vikings (only play once a week, you know) and would have followed the Twins closer had not the first time I channel surfed over to FSN North the Orioles were up 4-0 en route to a 7-3 victory.
I suppose I should be happy that the Twins finally won a series on the road, but the White Sox also swept their contests with the Detroit Tigers to remain on top of the division. It’s getting real late for this.
Preview (82-65, 2nd, 1.5 GB CWS): Kevin Slowey (12-9, 3.63) vs. Scott Lewis (1-0, 0.00). Lewis was very impressive in his major league debut, but it was against a terrible Orioles team. If the Twins have designs on becoming a playoff team, we should beat this guy (and also win this series, I don’t care if it is in Cleveland). Plus, the White Sox are in New York this week, so perhaps the Bombers can find their ******** sticks at an opportune moment for the Twins.
