Tuesday Game Notes
Hey everyone... quick Game Notes posting for now. Be sure to check out several things including the performances of Jeff Manship, Danny Valencia and David Bromberg. The Twins lost to the O's. Barack FINALLY, thankfully won! The Moment of Truth was good, but kind of disappointing after seeing the previews. What else is going on? Anyway, I will be back in a few minutes, posting the SethSpeaks Top 10 Twins Prospects. I think you'll enjoy it, and I would love your comments. It'll be busy the next several days though. I need to post the SethSpeaks Minor League Hitter and Pitcher of the Month (and the four runners up). I also have to write up my Organizational Review and Draft Thoughts for Thursday. So, just keep stopping by to check the comments and to see if there is anything new. So here are some game notes:
Tuesday Night - Twins 3, Orioles 5
Any Twins thoughts?
