Turnabout Is Fair Play
Since we thumped the Orioles in both halves of yesterday's doubleheader, you had to figure that the baseball gods would try to even things out a bit today. The loss (well, presumed loss since I'm writing before the game is over) is disappointing, but not overly so -- I'll take 2 out of 3 on the road in any series, even against the Orioles. The Twins will now sit and wait to see what the White Sox do, assuming they even get on the field. The most likely scenario is probably a split, which would leave the Twins 1/2 game back heading into the final two weeks. Considering that a week ago the team was 2.5 back, I'll take it. Nice job by the bullpen, by the way, to keep the team in this thing. Unfortunately, the offense abandoned ship. Let's hope there's no rain in Cleveland!
