So just when we fans get all excited and begin to believe that things were looking up, then WHAP! we're slapped with more mediocrity.
This series did feature some timely hits, homeruns even, but those were countered with lame strategy and even lamer pitching. Oh, and don't even get me started on the defense. Really?!
It's sad that the team needs the death of a legend to motivate them. It's even sadder when that doesn't even last more than three games.
Ok, so I'll cut myself short again. I don't want to rant and rave like a crazy woman. But, I tell ya', I'm this close...
Let's hope this upcoming home stand will be better. Much better.
Check out what I wrote over at From The Third Baseline regarding the players who might be traded if the Twins are sellers at the trade deadline.
predicted it on Twitter (he tweeted this just as Perkins was coming out of the 'pen on Saturday's game).
The Twins recalled Dusty Hughes to take his spot.
Kevin Slowey is scheduled to have an MRI on his abdominal area on Monday in the Twin Cities.
In better news:
Jim Thome and Jason Repko are ready to play and have been activated for Monday's game. Ben Revere and Luke Hughes have been re-assigned to AAA Rochester to make room.
No new news on Tsuyoshi Nishioka.
Joe Mauer has been increasing his baseball activities, donning catching gear, blocking balls, etc. Still no timetable for his return.
