The Twins won their two-game series against Cleveland. After getting rained out on Friday night, the Twins crushed Cleveland 10-3 on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday, it was a reversed home run call on Michael Brantley that proved to be the difference. That, and a big two-run double by Jason Kubel off of lefty Rafael Perez.
Either way, after a week of weeping and gnashing of teeth, it is important to note that the Twins are 5-2 in their last seven games and playing much better. They aren’t playing perfect, but you can see some improvements. It’s great to see Justin Morneau back in the lineup and contributing. It will be good to get Delmon Young back as well.
After a busy weekend with too much driving and too much working, I am exhausted, or not feeling well, or both. So, I’m going to get some sleep. Please be sure to check out the SethSpeaks.net Sunday Night Twins Podcast, especially if you haven’t before. In it, I discuss a ton of Twins-related topics like the past week, winning, the upcoming week, Mauer, Morneau, Kubel, Nathan and much, much more. Let me know what you think. I appreciate any and all feedback. Let me know what you’d like from these shows.
