New, comments

The Twins look to take 2 of 3 in Cleveland. Don't forget to "pick the stick"!

Know Thine Enemy: Let's Go Tribe

As I mentioned in my series preview, Oswaldo Arcia has seen Trevor Bauer 10 times and has taken him deep 4 times. Certainly this is a match up to watch... if he's in the lineup.

Probables: Tyler Duffey for the Twins and the aforementioned Trevor Bauer for the Indians.

The "Pick the Stick" Challenge

I've thought about doing this before and this week I want to try it out.

Basically, you pick one hitter on the Twins and you'll get points based on how they do in the game. You will also have a "sleeper" pick which will be used to help break the inevitable ties. The only stipulation is that, naturally, your main pick and your sleeper pick are different players.

I only have one last rule and that is to have fun try to pick your players before the game, or at least before they have their turn in the lineup.

Here's the point breakdown:

1: Singles, walks, stolen bases, runs, RBI.

2: Doubles.

3: Triples.

4: Home runs.

-1: Strikeouts.

-2: Double plays.

The winners will get a nice mention in the recap (and that's about it).

Make sure to pick both your main and sleeper picks to help yourself (and me).

GO TWINS GO!
