Game 56, Twins at Mariners
Blackburn vs the Sometimes New, Sometimes Improved, Frequently Frustrating Jarrod Washburn. 1:10
Sooo the M’s…
By way of contrast, here’s the Twins –
I always hope when I see D Young in the lineup for the Twins it’ll be Dmitri Young, because that would be hilarious.
Anyway, it’s surprising that the Twins are going to stack the lineup so heavily with lefties against a starter. Usually teams seek out ways to get the platoon advantage from the start, and are only held back by the need to look out for relievers later. Here the Twins either think their lefties will be immune to Washburn’s charm, or don’t care.
I wonder which it is.
