Game 116: Twins at Athletics

Minnesota endeavors to avoid the clean sweep. PLEASE WIN A GAME.

Pre-Game Notes

  • It sounds like Correia had already cleared waivers when he was traded to Los Angeles, meaning the Dodgers didn't claim him and this isn't a situation of the Twins just sticking LA with him.
  • Mike Berardino wonders if the end of Chris Colabello's Twins tensure is around the corner. I'd like to continue to have Colabello's story to continue to play out in Minnesota, but there's no doubt that his roster spot will be very valuable when the season is over.
  • Phil Hughes vs Jason Hammel. If the Twins are going to win a game this weekend, this is the one.
