WAKE UP ALREADY! Time for some baseballs.

It's your last Saturday afternoon game this season (Twins game, at any rate). 25-year-old righty Marcus Stroman goes for Toronto. He throws a fastball he can move both ways, and slider / curve / change. FanGraphs is pretty high on the young man. Digits:

ERA H/9 K/9 BB/9 HR/9 OPS v L/R BAbip FIP
Stroman 4.47
9.3
7.5
2.2
1.0
.766/.687
.313

Santana 3.33

Santana, of course, has been the only good Twins starter this year, so he'll probably get knocked out in the second inning. Lineups:

Jose Bautista, DH
Lil' Joe Mauer, 1B Josh Donaldson, 3B
Herr Von Kepler, RF
Edwin Encarnacion, 1B
