Welcome to Breakfast Baseball – especially if you happen to be a west coast Twins fan.
This is the last game in this series in Cleveland and our boys’ chance to even things up – for this trip. In the broader picture of division match-up for the season, we still have the edge on the Indians but we can’t afford to give that up so go Twins!
Unfortunately, we’re getting even more bench pinching. Fuld is having issues with headaches and neck stiffness and yeah, they are checking him for concussion issues. Not sure where that leaves us but Gardy is going to have a few issues today.

Well that wasn’t any fun.. I really do put it down to lack of flexibility.. as in, there is a reason we have a 25 man active roster and not having 25 available players is highly problematic. The Twins are basically still hoping that Mauer will be able to play “tomorrow” and Fuld is now on the DL.. these are not good things and it leads to losing baseball games.
