GameChat – Angels @ Twins, 6:10pm

so… maybe you don’t remember this but when the Angels were here last, I was joking about how that one Twins commercial about the Angels fan getting his tongue stuck to the flag pole was kind of ironically true… in fact, weather conditions were so inclement that one game was postponed – to today.  Yeah, poor Angels aren’t going to know what hit them when they take the field at a miserably humid 90+ degrees…  they may not honestly believe they are in the same place..

Do I think that is going to help with our guys facing Weaver???  Practically speaking, no, but the Twins fan in me will always HOPE…

For all the issues with Twins pitching, it’s worth noting that Mike Trout was struck out looking three times tonight, including for the last out of the game.

Trevor Plouffe drove in three runs. Not too shabby.

But Josmil Pinto had three doubles, scored twice and drove one run in. I think that’s BOD worthy. – JC

One thought on “GameChat – Angels @ Twins, 6:10pm

  1. I totally agree with that BOD call… good choice. Managed to catch the end of the game from bed and Perkins seems to be falling into that Closer mentality that requires he make his inning INTERESTING before he shuts it down.. I really don’t need that kind of stress boy!
