Split Series Equals Split Personality

Wow. I don't remember the last time I had such a dramatic mood swing in a 24-hour period.

Monday: Twins 7 - Tigers 2
Tuesday: Twins 0 - Tigers 9 (Ouch! That hurt to write. In fact, it still hurts to think about. Someone grab some Advil for me. And maybe some ice. And rum.)

Twins split the stupid two-game series 1 each.

To compare and contrast the two games, I thought I'd make a spreadsheet showing my findings. This is a significant step for me; I'm afraid of spreadsheets.


Monday’s Game

Tuesday’s Game

Starting pitching


Not so much



Not so much

Timely hitting


Not so much

Patience at the plate


Not so much

Doing the little things right


Not so much

Playing like major leaguers


Not so much

Yup. The data shows the team can certainly afford to concentrate on a little consistency. Just remember guys: more like Monday, less like Tuesday.

Get them next time!

I could not agree more with your post!

The guys need to hold their heads up and keep going...it's only a month into the season.

The Crainadian is back, which is sure to make the starters more confident and Morneau more relaxed (because he has somebody to talk to now).
