Start of a new series. At home against the Twins. At the end of the last home stand, we were feeling hopeful, or at least we were talking ourselves into feeling hopeful. A crappy road trip later, and I'd be happy is we can get out of last place for a moment or two at some point.
And it's Players Weekend, or Player's Weekend, Players' Weekend, I'm not really sure. It all sounds vaguely off-color. They should have gotten Ashley Madison to sponsor this weekend. It works even better with Big Sexy starting for the Twins today, even though he doesn't get it on his shirt.
Colon has done a pretty good job since joining the Twins, a 4.46 ERA over 7 starts.
