Not the best week for Twins baseball. After a relentless 14 games on the trot, because of inclement weather, Minnesota found themselves with three days off this week, and one day playing some pretty crappy baseball best forgotten about.

The three game series with Cleveland should hopefully be a bit better. Regardless of whether the Twins win or lose (of course, we want them to win, but you know what I mean), it’d be nice to see them truly competing. To be honest, their current 7-9 record seems a little flattering. Only a couple of those games has been a true ‘blow-out’ (the 12-5 victory over the White Sox, and the 9-2 win over the Angels), the rest have been very close calls or sneaking up on teams from behind.

Of course, a win is a win, in whatever form it takes, but it’d be really encouraging if this weekend the Twins could command a game from start to finish, scoring runs early and limiting the offense of their opponents. The Indians have had a mixed start to the season, that’s for sure, but there’s no denying their batting lineup is strong, but if Minnesota can silence them this weekend, it could be a great series, so good luck fellas.

But of course, who cares anyway when the Red Sox are playing the Yankees this weekend (yawn). Justin Morneau could smack three grand slams, Nick Blackburn could throw a no-hitter, and Travis Hafner could hit for the cycle twice, but if Big Papi so much as farts, it’ll be all over ESPN and FOX.

    ok by me, I’d rather be in the hip, underground. yankees and red sox fans are as ubiquitous and obnoxious as coldplay fans.

    Well, things got off to a really good start tonight. Good pitching, solid defense, and timely hitting (plus a Justin Morneau home run), you can’t really ask for more than that! Of course, Nick Blackburn kind of owns the Indians, so we’ll see how the rest of the series goes. It is really nice to see them playing good baseball for a change, though.P.S. I’m glad you left a comment on my blog, otherwise I might not have ever known yours existed! You have a lot of good stuff on here.-Erinhttp://plunking-gomez.mlblogs.com
