*Bite me

If you're like me, and I know I am, you've enjoyed the beat down our firstish place Twins have laid on these Sawx pouffes de la creme these last three games. So bake up some baked bean hotdish, sit back, turn on your boob tube or wireless and let's enjoy the Bosawx rout finale in game 4 of the series!

Pitching for the Southies today will be southpaw David Price (LHP, 2-2, 4.76 ERA). Price was pulled after pitching six innings against the Angels in his last outing with a "cracked fingernail." You'd think a little dab of Sally Hansen® Hard As Nails would fix him right up, but I don't know if they even tried that. He hasn't played against the Twins this year, but last year he gave up 11 hits and five earned runs over 5.2 innings, so there's hope, and where there's hope, something, something.

Big-name pitcher Kyle Gibson (RHP, 4-5, 6.23 ERA) will take the mound for the Twins. Kyle "Unknown" Gibson pitched 4 2/3 innings in his last start. He only gave up a solo home run on four hits and four walks but threw 93 pitches so... success? Kyle pitched six innings in his last three starts previous to that, so it just goes to show you, it's always something.
