They needed to win this game with Sale pitching tomorrow for the Sox.
But - be honest everyone - raise your hand if, like me, in the unlikely event that all of those wonderful things happened one the same day that the Twins clinched the division, you'd be right here talking about who our game 1 starter should be instead of on CNN reading about how the world's problems were solved.
At tonight's press conference, Gardy in complete denial about the LOB issue. He completely denied that the RISP tonight was 1-10. He seemingly wasn't aware that the Twins outhit the Sox and had a series of poor ABs that snuffed out potential rallies.
The bright side is definitely the bullpen, Robertson certainly pitched like he wants to stay with the big club, gotta be happy for the big kid in his debut.
Meanwhile, Hendriks defintely showed he has a pulse and gives some hope that he can become a competent SP in time. In an added plus and based on the post-game interview, he was apparently in another life, the co-star on House, playing Dr. Chase.
