Pre-Game Notes

  • Today's number three hitter, T-bone P-louffe, is hitting .303/.343/.636 in his last eight games. So, middle of the order material, obviously.
  • Today's number four hitter, Kendry Morale Sx2, has hit safely in his last eight games. It's raised his OPS from .541 to .579. So, middle of the order material, obviously.
  • Today's number five hitter, K-Zuki, is hitting .306 with a .363 on-base percentage. This is the 96th game of the year. The question isn't "why is he a middle of the order hitter," the question is "why is he only batting fifth?"
  • Come back soon, Joe Mauer. And you, too, Josh Willingham. And Oswaldo Arcia, it would be nice if your bat decided to show some signs of life this year, too.
  • I'm really sorry. It's just, this lineup, you guise. This lineup...
  • ...will probably win the Twins this game. Because baseball.
