GameChat – Jays @ Twins, 7:10pm

Now, according to the latest Twins radio commercials, begins the “rhyming home series” which includes the Jays, A’s and Rays… of course the Angels have a makeup game in there too but we won’t worry about that if the media guys don’t.

In case you missed it, Joe Mauer has had a return of concussion symptoms which prompted a great post from JC this morning which a) you should read and b) I totally agree with. Joe Mauer should just sit the rest of the season, go home to his girls and get ready to bang it in Feb. There just isn’t enough of this season left to make any justification for the attempt to come back now.

For tonight’s game, I am really intrigued to see RA Dickey back in Minnesota – I was definitely sad to see him go, was ecstatic to see him do well and now I am really curious to see what he does here in Target Field. Let’s go boys!

I’m not really sure what happened, but Mike Pelfrey struggled early and despite a valiant effort in the late innigns, the Twins could not overcome an early 5 run deficit.  Back at it on Saturday evening.
