This is another one of those days when you just don't want to talk about the previous night's game. So, who's excited about playing the Twins?
AL Central Standings
A .500 record and losers of their last three? Against a team with a sub-.500 record and losers of their last five? Someone's going to have a one-game winning streak after tonight! And it better be the Rockies. It's a Nick Blackburn-Ubaldo Jimenez matchup. With the exception of his starts on April 7 and 14, Blackburn has gone at least six innings in his starts (eight starts total). Jimenez has only gone six innings or more twice in eight starts: his second start of the season (his only win) and his 11-K losing effort last Saturday.
The last link also indicates that Hurdle will announce his coaching staff for the All-Star Game today. Who else will he take?
Anyone want to help Josh Fogg count 150K pennies? It might help pass the time until the Rockies start winning again.
