Game 116, Twins at Mariners
Hernandez vs Santana, 7:05 pm.
Happy Super Awesome First In A Lifetime Great Venezuelan Pitching Matchup Day.
Felix vs Johan. The current Venezuelan ace against the future Venezuelan ace. The best pitcher alive against the guy with the best arm on the planet. This should be epic.
As such, I refuse to acknowledge the defense John McLaren has put behind Felix. It’s some kind of August 13th joke, and we’ll find out the real line-up just before gametime. No one’s stupid enough to bench Beltre and Lopez against a left-hander with the most dominant groundball guy on the staff pitching, right? Right?
Whatever. Go Felix.
