Twins v. A's Series Wrapup

Who are these people and what have they done with my Twins? And, more importantly, can they be persuaded to stay?

In this three-game series against the A's, the Twins hit .350/.400/1.010, scored 21 runs, hit six homers and six doubles, took 8 walks and got 35 hits. The pitching staff, meanwhile, picked up the pace a bit. Though a cumulative 4.33 ERA doesn't look so hot on this group of arms, it's a lot better than the 6.38 they posted against Cleveland. They gave up 13 earned runs including five homers while striking out 20.

I was at the opening night game, and if you missed it, please feel free to take a moment to whack yourself over the head with a nice thesaurus or a brick or something. What a game! What a rally! What a surprise!

TBL is a wee bit busy with her shiny new job at the moment, so you'll have to pardon the erratic posting. The goal at the moment is two posts a week. Three or more when things calm down a bit.

The Bankees are in town to start a three-game series tonight. I'll be attending tonight and Sunday. Those of you who have been with this blog (and its previous incarnation on Earthlink) for a while know that the Bankee series is always good for at least one rant about obnoxious NY fans, so stay tuned.
