When I think of Twins, I think of boobs…so here are a whole bunch of pictures of boobs! Oh wait, all that “NSFW” crap…yawn. OK, I’ll just post one picture of boobs. This slightly saggy pair is 55 years old today…Happy Birthday!
The Twins have a hell of a team this year. Not too many crappy OPS+ in that lineup. They only had two selected for the All-Star Game, Jake Odorizzi and Jorge Polanco. Odorizzi pitches tonight which puts him on turn for Sunday, so he’ll most likely be replaced, quite possibly by either Jose Berrios or closer Taylor Rogers, both of whom have the stats to justify it.
All right-handed starters for both clubs:
Tonight at 7:05: Daniel Mengden vs. Jake Odorizzi
Wednesday at 6:05:
Tanner Anderson Mike Fiers vs. Kyle Gibson
Thursday at 1:05:
Mike Fiers Tanner Anderson vs. Jose Berrios Boy, I hope Anderson throws his best game because that’s a heck of a long wait for fireworks if he puts the A’s down by half a dozen by the third inning. A bad pitching performance by the home club plus a fireworks night adds up to a night of “The Wave” hell. (in Roseanne Roseannadanna voice, “never mind”)
I’m dropping by to post this thread but, like any sane Tahoe local, I’ll be evacuating tomorrow morning, in my case for the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest. It’s Fourth of July, I don’t expect solitude, but I’ve seen enough of the drunken stupidity or even sober assholery over this weekend in the past that I prefer to get away. If I stick to plan I’ll emerge briefly from the wilderness on Sunday at T-Mobile Park, and that’s actually a good place to find some peace and quiet this year.
