So before we get to the rest of it, let's recap some of my thoughts from this game.
Dude, this sucks.
What?! Man, this sucks.
I hate Cliff Lee.
I hate Cliff Lee so much.
Oh my god, we're gonna rumble!
If this DID turn into a fight, I think it'd look a lot like the Jets and Sharks in A West Side Story.
Still hate Cliff Lee.
Oh...more sucking? Awesome.
Dear sweet Jesus, just make it stop.
etc. etc. etc.
But elsewhere in baseball things were much more interesting. The Pirates traded Nate McClouth to Atlanta. Which is weird. And, made me sad for the Pirates, and a little sad for myself and Lipgloss & Baseball and Company Woman Amanda (Got you linked this time!)...because our upcoming Awesome Pittsburgh Adventure just got a little less adorable. Nate McClouth=always very likeable. Frowny faces, all around.
Of course, on the bright side, here comes Andrew McCutchen!
I'm excited about this development.
Of course, his extreme awesomeness WOULD have to be added to the Pirates roster just in time for Interleague at the Metrodome....Hopefully the Twins saw enough of him in Florida to be on their toes. (Pssst......He's speedy, y'all.)
And the Braves called up Little Tommy Hanson to replace Tom Glavine in the rotation. (Boy, the Braves were busy today.) He promises to be an exciting young pitcher to keep an eye on, if you're into that sort of thing. Which, obviously, we are.
And the dreaded White Sox have called up young phenom Gordon Beckham to play shortstop. He was literally in AAA for like a week, where he tore things up like he was Godzilla in Tokyo. This should be an interesting experiment. It's either going to a complete disaster (good for us, bad for them) or a terrifying success (bad for us, good for them). I don't predict much of a gray area here. Either way, it'll be something to see.
So, I'm glad that there are interesting things happening to take my mind off of this last Twins game. This day game is Baker vs. Fausto Carmona. Hmm....the way things have been going for those 2 pitchers, it's entirely possible that the scoreboard will look like it's a Vikings/Browns game. Here's hoping we come out on top! Go Twins!
