GameChat – Twins @ Rays #3, 3:10 pm, FOX & am1500

I think Mother Nature got a little off track with the calendar. April Fool’s Day was a couple weeks ago; snow now isn’t a prank, it’s just a little defeating. It’s all gone at my house now, though, and maybe the weather will get back on track sometime soon.

Hopefully the Twins can get back on track soon too. Today would be a nice time . . . just sayin’.

Well, that didn’t work out so well. I’m pretty much the last person to go to the dark side of negativism, but I’m getting pretty close. It’s hard to watch blown saves and such close losses. But I’m going to try really hard to remain hopeful that things will get better.

  1. there will be much celebration when the Twins win

    positives: Span continues to hit. Kubel hit a homer. the Starting Pitching seems to have settled in and pitching their tails off.

  2. Starting pitchers (except Frankie): Fine
    Offense: Getting better; still needs to capitalize on clutch situations and RISP
    Bullpen: Okay, but closers have not looked good recently.

    Hey, I understand that slumps are a normal part of baseball. And a lousy April is not a predictor for the rest of the season.
