We'll join Twins struggle tonight
Stan and Kathleen head to Target Field this evening to see the troubled Twins take on the Seattle Mariners in what is being billed as a "pitchers' duel." (Oh joy.) Carl Pavano, (above) our inconsistent ace, will take the mound against Jason Vargas, their "untouchable" lefty. Could be a tough night. It was 70 out today, game time is 7:10, it's been damp, and if the bats are cold, it could be a difficult evening for a few Twins fans.
Highlight will be the return of our disabled favorite, Jim Thome, a venerated gentleman still in pursuit of 600 career homers. It would be nice to get the Humpty-Dumpty Twins put back together again to see if we can reboot the franchise. Maybe this is a first step. We'll see.
We also hope to get a photo of Kathleen beside the bronze Killebrew statue. If we do, you'll see it here, but you knew that, of course.
