    Game Thread: Twins@Mariners 7/28 3:10PM

    Twins: SP Kyle Gibson

    Mariners: SP Erasmo Ramirez

    Things to think about:

    1. Think about Sam Deduno... His ERA is now down to 3.18. At some point... you have to consider him as a legit stopper. Of course that doesn't do us much good today but I think it's worth thinking about.

    2. Think about Kyle Gibson... He's still trying to recover from a real bad start against the Yankees. He's been OK apart from that real bad start. His ERA will remain some inflated until he can get some more decently thrown innings under his belt. Hopefully he can continue to chip away at that inflated 5.72 ERA this afternoon.

    3. Think about the Twins Offense... Still not impressing us very much. There is no one on the current roster that you can consider hot. This puts a lot of pressure on the Pitching and Defense.

    4. Think about the Pitching and Defense... It's been pretty dang good lately.

    5. Think about Architecture... I work in a building that has already been built... Yet it is still called a building... Like it's not done yet.

    Now that you mention it, who else is there? Nothing against Mauer, who probably deserves it the most, but SamWell could lead the team in wins, era, whip, and BA against. What do you suppose the Vegas line would have been for that back in December?

    Perkins would have a claim, too, but I'll take a very good starter over a great closer.

    Mauer had Twins while a member of the Twins. The Synergy alone makes him a lock for MVP.

    So Maddie's the MVP of the twins, but Deduno is the MVP of the Twins.

    I agree that if the season ended now the team MVP is definitely Joe Mauer.

    Sam and Glen are certainly the #2 & #3's - either one is a good pick for runner up.

    It seems like it has been a long, long time since I was excited to watch a Twins Starting pitcher pitch. I am breathing it in, enjoying it, and not taking it for granted.

    Deduno is a piece of the puzzle of this teams future.

    I'd like to see him go through the league a couple more times (he's only faced three teams twice this year) before I make that call. But I've got hope.

    Remember when the starting pitchers used to hug after a good start? That's what we need. More hugging!

    I love it when they put a guy on camera right when he's adjusting his package.

    That should be a homerun.

    They would always do that when Jim Thome batted. *cringes*

    Pretty hard to tell from that angle but it didn't look like it hit anything past the yellow line.

    Well, that's one way to do it.

    Who knows how long my reverse jinx lasts. A weekend at least.

    Friday night's Reverse Jinx against Colabello will go down as one of the top 3 reverse jinxes in all of history. I believe he's 4-5 with 2 HRs since then.
