  • Series Preview: Twins vs White Sox, 5/13-5-/15

    Before coming home to face the Orioles for three games at home, Minnesota made a trip around the American League, faced three over .500 teams, and returned with a 5-5 record.

    Upon greeting the Orioles for three games, they immediately decided to pitch three consecutive games of batting practice, allowing 23 runs over the weekend set.

    Thankfully, the Orioles are gone and the Twins are set to welcome the Chicago White Sox to Target Field. The White Sox and their unbalanced attack of no-hitting, excellent pitching may be the needed ingredient for the Twins starting staff to get back on track.

      I hope Willingham makes him pay for that walk.

      Hammer is the only one without a hit, but he'll get his chance again. He needs to come through and get out of his slump.

      T-Ball... I remember it well. On Defense... 1 or 2 kids would chase down every ball... 11 or 12 other kids would let them.

      Well, a triple-meat pizza with extra cheese comes close, but OK, I'll give that one to you.

      If she is like most wife's... Yes I think so.

      Ive been hit in the head by a can of Barbesol while sitting on the coach watching a Twins game.

      No words exchanged... I picked up the can... And went straight for my razor.
