Friday’s game against the Twins was one I really hoped we’d win
I figured it might be a fight. The Twins aren’t great, but they don’t bite.
Of course the question from word go was which Ubaldo J. would show.
The guy with the electric slider or the one who makes you drink hard cider?
Top of one, bases loaded and no outs; it looked like it would be a rout.
Struck out the side, never fear–the Good Ubaldo J. was here!
Ten big strikeouts, holy crap! Too bad the offense took a nap.
The box score reads four walks, six hits, and one stinking run to show for it.
Final score was five to one. This is not what you’d call fun.
At losing we are quite adroit, unlike those guys up in Detroit.
Tigers won, so did the Rays, I hope the Orioles beat the A’s.
If it isn’t too pretentious, check the odds at Baseball Prospectus.
We may yet play into October, (yes, THIS October and yes, I’m sober).
Thus I’ll wait to drown my sorrows. Let’s see if they win tomorrow.

- Does Samuel Deduno’s last name also make you think of your duodenum?
- Is thinking Cody Allen looks about 14 a sign that I’m getting old?
- Why did Michael Bourn try to steal third on a 3-0 count?
- How many times in one season can Carlos Santana take a hard hit to the face mask before it does real damage?
