Maybe I Should Have Stayed on Vacation

Minnesota went 0-6 before I went on vacation to Hawaii. By the time I got back, they’d gone 6-1. I think that’s a message that I need to live on Oahu for the rest of my life, so if anyone’s up for paying me my current salary, buying me a house there, and setting me up with a decent pension, I’d be happy to make the move.

Apart from the 20-1 drubbing of the White Sox, the Twins still lost that series to Chicago, but swept the Brewers in the first interleague weekend of the year. They’ve won two out of four against Boston so far, but it’ll be tough to make it a series win with Josh Beckett on the mound for the Red Sox today.

Evidently, the Twins have been hitting well lately, but they’ll still have to improve their form away from home to be truly competitive. But I’m happy to have returned from vacation to find Minnesota back at the .500 mark and leap-frogging the Royals in the AL Central as I get back to studying baseball again after a week or so ‘off duty’.

    I feel the same way about getting back to baseball after a long absence; unfortunately mine was spent doing homework and writing papers instead of enjoying Oahu. Good luck facing Beckett! Maybe the Twins could try for 20 runs against both Sox teams in one week.
