Game 150: Twins at Mets

There's only 12 more of these things after this.

First pitch: 12:10 PM CDT
Tv: FS-N, probably Radio: TIBN, Go 96.3
Know thine enemy: Amazin' Avenue

Ya know, I was gonna write a parody on "The Twelve Days of Christmas," but one is a date we dread because it means talking to family members and the other is the last game of the baseball season.

Kyle Gibson gets the call today. In his last start he went 8 innings and allowed just 1 run, whilst striking out 4. His previous starts were all bad (with some exceptions). In August he had an ERA over 6, and his 2 previous starts had an ERA pushing 7. Which Gibby shows up today?

The bad Gibby, it'll probably be the bad Gibby. I mean I hope not, but statistically speaking that's more likely. Numbers are cruel and have no compassion.
