Diamond In The Rough?
After a disappointing loss in the afternoon game today, the Twins bounce back tonight with the debut of pitcher Scott Diamond, the twelve millionth (a slight exaggeration) Rochester Red Wing the team has used this season.
For whatever reason, I always get excited about a rookie pitcher making his starting debut. Remember the names Mike Smith and Dave Gassner? I do.
We can’t lose two games to the Indians in one day, can we?!
