Game 40: Twins @ Brewers

New, comments

Can the Twins make it 4 in a row? This winning streak has come out of nowhere, leading some people to proclaim that "It's Happening" again. Well, we know how that turned out last year, so I'm going to be cautiously optimistic about this.

One big reason for my caution is that Carl Pavano is taking the mound today. On most days, this would be a good sign, but he's been pitching through some shoulder problems. Luckily for him, most of his recent starts have seen him go about 6 innings despite coming nowhere near 100 pitches, so somehow he's being effective while being protected by the coaching staff.

Interesting note: Ben Revere is in right field today. Let's see how many times his arm gets challenged by the Brewers going first to third. Also, there's no Joe Mauer in the lineup.
