GameChat – Rays @ Twins, 7:10pm

The Twins could not have asked for a more perfect day to play baseball! It’s just such a beautiful day outside that even though I can’t be AT the game tonight, it breaks my heart just a bit to even be inside watching the TV! My husband keeps talking about running a line to the deck to have the ability to move a TV out there sometimes. Maybe I’ll see if I can get him to figure that out…

News for today:

  1. Plouffe isn’t ready to come back yet. I get the impression he wasn’t happy with the decision but they sent him to Rochester for a couple days to rehab before he gets back into the lineup here. He would rather have just played.
  2. Despite the fact Plouffe isn’t ready yet, Nishioka will not have to worry about the home team crowd reaction just yet. He’s not in the lineup tonight. No, I don’t think that means anything yet. I think it’s still a wait & see situation with Nishi.
  3. Also out playing catch on the field with Rochester is Scott Baker. It’s good to see things are progressing with him. It seems like Scott Baker sightings are a little rare.

Cole DeVries gets another hometown start. The lineup behinds him SHOULD be able to give him the defense he needs and the run support to give him confidence. I will really appreciate it if that actually happens.

Ouch.

I have to admit.. I didn’t make it to the end of the game. I can watch losing baseball. I’m a Twins fan, I’ve seen a LOT of losing baseball. I stick with it right to the bitter end.

But.. yeah.. BAD baseball .. I have a very low threshold. Tonight was just not good baseball.
