Twins vs. Cleveland News And Notes

You can tell the Twins are struggling; most of the photos available for stories like this one are of the "LOL look at the terrible baseballs" variety.

The title of this post was very nearly "Herpes vs. Syphilis News And Notes."

Twins Notes

  • Josh Willingham is still on the ropes - he missed starting two of three games in the Chicago series with an injured hamstring. The team is hoping he starts tonight, however.
  • In other health news, Matt Capps is throwing off flat ground, and Denard Span is improving and hoping to perhaps return in mid-September, and heck let's be honest we're not going to see either one of these guys for the rest of the season. (And given that the Twins have a glut of outfielders and Capps is a free agent, you have to wonder if we'll see either in a Twins uniform again.)
  • According to MLB.com, the Twins have four of the top 100 prospects in baseball - Miguel Sano, Byron Buxton, Aaron Hicks, and Eddie Rosario. This is good for 14th-best in the league.
  • The Twins need seven more wins in their final 25 games to avoid losing 100 for the year. They have seven left with Cleveland, three with Toronto, and three with Kansas City, but also have to play three against Chicago, six against Detroit, and three with New York. In a way, then, this series with Cleveland is important. If only to avoid (more) embarassment.
