GameChat – Orioles @ Twins, 7:10pm


Apparently this home-stand is all about teasing me with favorite former Twins…

I STILL get angry seeing JJ Hardy on someone else’s roster. Just saying.

Fans in TF will hopefully have that plus other reasons to enjoy some baseball!


[edit] Roster news: Hicks has been placed on the 7 day disabled list with concussion symptoms and Logan Darnell has been called up from AAA to take his spot. Of course, he’s not here yet tonight so that limits the bench but we’ll see what happens..

Gotta admit that tonight was not the most interesting baseball game ever…  Nolasco didn’t pitch great but he didn’t suck either. And he did pitch a complete game so that was a HUGE bonus for the bullpen. He got lucky a few times, he left a few up but he really only paid for it once – one long bomb for 2 runs that brought the Orioles lead up to 3. But honestly, I don’t know why the Twins didn’t get any runs because I don’t think Jimenez really pitched all that well either.

Let’s just say that it didn’t really cause me any distress to move over to the hockey game when it started.

so… GO WILD!
