Should We Probably Win a Series Against the Dodgers?: Um, yeah



Last night, the Twins actually managed to score more runs than their opponents and ended a 6 game losing streak, beating the Dodgers 6-4. They look to go for the series win in this afternoon's game.

Your pitchers are:


Rubby De La Rosa

#50 / Pitcher / Los Angeles Dodgers

Well, let's get one thing out of the way right away: yes, his name is Rubby. Now that we're over that, De La Rosa has been very mediocre for the Dodgers this year. In 25.2 IP, he's given up 25 hits, walked 16 batters, and given up 15 runs. The Twins should be able to hit him today, but I feel like I say that often to no avail.


Scott Baker

#30 / Pitcher / Minnesota Twins

Baker has been pretty solid for the Twins this year, and you all pretty much know everything you need to about him. He's really very good when he's on, expect a short outing if he's not.

Notes
-
Delmon Young's ankle isn't sprained or broken, and he just has a bone bruise. He should be off the DL by the time his 15 days are up.
-The Dodgers' financial troubles are getting more interesting (and/or depressing, I guess). This article talks about the latest challenges.
-Cliff Lee is kind of a badass. Not really related to the Twins or Dodgers, but I feel like more people should know this.
