Know Thine Enemy: Covering the Corner
Ideally, the Twins will start winning today.
In actuality, who knows. (Despite being a Connecticut resident, I have evidently inherited some Minnesota pessimism.)
Reasons for pessimism:
- The Twins still have yet to win a non-9-inning game in 2021.
- It tends to come with the field when it comes to Minnesota sports.
- This thread is being published a handful of minutes late.
Reasons for optimism:
- Kenta Maeda on the mound.
- Boomstick in the lineup.
- Luis Arraez.
- Byron Buxton.
- La Tortuga is La Tortuga.
- I was able to get this game thread to one hundred fifty words by adding an incredibly long, if not completely pointless, bullet point.
- Okay, I lied, but then I got it to one hundred fifty words by adding one more bullet point to the list right here.
