Know Thine Enemy: Bless You Boys

The Twins are looking to win the rubber game of this series against the Tigers. I've been encouraged that they've remained competitive in both games, and even genuinely surprised (and impressed) by Mike Pelfrey last night. Ugh, I hate it when I like Big Pelf.

Phil Hughes hasn't had a great start to the season, but the main culprit has been the long ball. This was the same issue he had before last season, so hopefully he can keep the ball in the park because his other secondary numbers have been excellent. Oh, and after a 1-5 start, the Twins have been 8-6. Improvement!
