Go Twins?: Go Twins!
In a pitching matchup that clearly favors the White Sox, today's game features the Twins' Nick Blackburn (4-4, 7.45 ERA) going against Chicago's Chris Sale (8-2, 2.24 ERA). The Twins have managed to win 6 of Blackburn's 11 starts so far this year, so hopefully Sale is off today (and Blackburn is on...) and the Twins can get the win.
