Joan Holloway Leading a Conga Line: Hypnotic
UPDATE! UPDATE! The Twins have signed first-roung pick Alex Wimmers.
True story: I turned yesterday's game off in disgust immediately after Jason Kubel's Beard popped up in the 9th, so I didn't see that the ball hit the catwalk. Didn't find out until I checked the score on my phone 15 minutes later. The lesson, as always: NEVER LEAVE A GAME EARLY.
|2010 - Francisco Liriano||10-7||21||21||0||0||0||0||136.0||124||48||48||2||38||150||3.18||1.19|
21 straight scoreless innings, 4-0 in his last four starts with an 0.63 ERA and 33 Ks. He's doing okay, I guess.
|2010 - Jeanmar Gomez||2-0||2||2||0||0||0||0||12.0||10||4||2||1||3||6||1.50||1.08|
Who? (Let's not make another relatively anonymous starter look like Cy Young, okay fellas?) In case you thought you would recognize any Indians tonight, Carlos Santana is having season-ending surgery after that awful home plate collision earlier this week, and Travis Hafner is on the DL. Honestly, the Twins should be disappointed if they don't sweep this series. Also, the Whities are playing Baltimore, so they'll pretty much have to take all three just to stay 1.5 games back.
