GameChat – A’s @ Twins #3, 12:10pm

Another sunny day in the 50′s – great spring baseball weather. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could see some great spring baseball? I’d go for that.

Let’s see what Pelfrey can do for us.

Oh, in honor of a visit from Little Nicky Punto, I thought I would share this link from Deadspin showing a fantastic play from SS Andrelton Simmons.

Some people will say that the story of this series is that the A’s hitting just beats ours… That may be true but to be honest, we matched them HR for HR – they just got theirs with people on base and we didn’t, and many of their HR RBI were WALKS.

The REAL story of this series is that their starting pitching rocked and ours sucked. I would like to see that change (I’m sure that Gardy would also like that) but it’s pretty much been the ongoing Twins’ issue. You have to have good pitching to get wins.
