You have to admit that it’s kind of a new feeling for Twins fans this season to actually look forward to what the scheduled starting pitcher might pull off! AND it’s the second night in a row that I have had that feeling! I’m looking forward to what Scott Diamond might be able to pull off tonight.
I am just going to say this for the record: I don’t care what the Twins final season record is as long as they continue to play baseball the way they are right now – because it’s a heck of a lot more fun to watch! I don’t even require that they win (although that’s great) as long as they are actually making a GAME of it! I like PITCHING and HITTING and BASE RUNNING and FIELDING like you belong in the big leagues!
All that being said, I really do like winning and I especially like beating the White Sox so let’s do it again, shall we?

Well that was just ugly from the onset. Diamond has to be wondering what happened to the supposed Major League team that he’s been playing on. Bad defense and no hitting are no way to support a young pitcher… or any pitcher at all, really.
Ah well… back at it Thursday night. – JC
