A letter from Seth
Dear Twins Fans,
Good morning everyone! Well, I have been busier in the cities and have not had the computer time to do anything of note for this page. I do apologize profusely. So, today will be quite short and I am going to count on Comments to get us through the weekend. I have a couple of meetings and almost four hours of training this afternoon, and I donít think Iíll be on the computer a whole lot this weekend, but please feel free to e-mail me as well.
The Twins finally got a win, beating the Royals 1-0 in the 11th inning and a single by Mike Redmond. Of course the story of the game is that Zach Greinke hit Torii Hunter and he ended up with three stitches. If you saw the replay, Hunter wanted to charge the mound. I just canít imagine that Greinke was trying to hit him, but I am always understanding when a batter nearly gets hit in the head (or in this case actually does), because that is just dangerous. I am all for pitching inside and even hitting batters from time to time. But hit them in the hip or back, not in the head. It sounds as if Hunter will try to play tonight.
I heard that some Hollywood TV show has named Joe Mauer one of Americaís 15 most eligible bachelors. Cool!?
Rochester did not have a game last night. Tonight, it will be Matt Garza taking the mound for the Red Wings. Terry Ryan will be in attendance, so it will be interesting to see how he and the other Twins starters pitch while the GM is in the stands!
Trevor Plouffe had a big day for the New Britain Rockcats. The SS went 4-5 with two doubles and his third home run of the year. We here at SethSpeaks are thrilled to see that .340 average next to his name. In the game, Gil Velazquez went 3-4 with a grand slam. Luke Hughes also homered. The Rockcats won 11-8, but Jay Sawatski was a highlight on the mound. He threw 2.1 scoreless innings. On another note, David Winfree has been out recently with a sore shoulder. He was scheduled for an MRI.
Ft. Myers was swept by Dunedin in a double header yesterday. Jay Rainville took the loss in the first game. Yohan Pino took a rare loss for himself in Game 2. He didnít pitch poorly, giving up two runs in four innings. Whit Robbins had two hits in the first game. Eli Tintor and Dwayne White each had two hits in the second game.
Beloit won. They beat Dayton 4-2. The star was young Alex Burnett who gave up just two runs in eight strong innings. He struck out five. Dan Leatherman pitched the ninth for the save. Danny Santiesteban hit a big fifth inning, two run homer. Danny Valencia had two doubles in four at bats. Johnny Woodard also had a double.
So, letís get the discussion going for the weekend. Pick topics and ask each other questions. Be nice, but donít be afraid to disagree. During the games, make Comments on what youíre seeing. And hey, if you want, talk about other things like ďHow good is Greyís Anatomy? Or, Why couldnít they have made more episodes of October Road because that show is so good too?Ē
Thatís all Iíve got. Thanks for your patience with me, and have a great weekend!
