Know Thine Enemy: Over the Monster


The Twins, fresh off a road (!) shutout (!!) of an AL East team (!!!) led by Samuel Deduno (collapses on the 1/! key), look to continue making the most annoying fanbase in baseball, non-Yankee division, feel bad about itself.

Heavers:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Brian Duensing 2-6 38 5 0 0 0 0 59.2 63 31 30 6 16 33 4.53 1.32


He pitched great when he barely had time to prepare for his last start. I assume he's known about this one for most of this week, so temper your expectations.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Felix Doubront 10-5 20 20 0 0 0 0 113.1 113 62 55 17 46 113 4.37 1.40


What a terrible waste of a great goalie name. You're playing the wrong sport, Felix!

Notes:

  • Joe Mauer returns after getting a day off, with Josh Willingham moving to DH, Darin Mastroianni manning left field and Ryan Doumit getting a day off.
  • Former Twin and ONE OF US Pat Neshek was traded by the Baltimore Orioles to the Oakland Athletics. We wish him well.
  • Also via Joe C. on the Twitter, Lester Oliveros is having season-ending surgery to clear out bone chips in his right elbow. It is NOT Tommy John surgery. Yet.
  • While it's funny that Samuel Deduno helped shut out Boston at Fenway Park, it's laugh-until-you-vomit-on-your-dog funny that the last Twins starting pitcher to do that was Scott Aldred in 1996 (h/t: Reusse). Un-frickin'-real.

Enjoy the game, everybody.
