Twinkie Split

So the Twins split their doubleheader with the Tigers today and remain 2 games back. I’m just glad my team has been nationally televised all week, with an ESPN game to come Wednesday- that’s the advantage of one’s team being part of the only pennant race this year.
A few thoughts, having watched the MLB Network feed of the local Twins broadcast: Does Blyleven really use the phrase “a great piece of hitting” ten times per game? What’s with all the bunting? The Phillies get criticized for not enough small ball, but Twins do it way too much.
Also, I have to hand it to Detroit Tigers fans- they played a noon game on a Tuesday, postponed from the night before, and the stadium was totally full. Now, I know it’s a city with 25 percent unemployment, but that’s all the more reason- a lot of these people don’t have any money. Read the SI cover story from last week for more on that.

    It’s funny you notice about Blyleven. We put up with it because it’s so much worse having to listen to Gladden on the radio do play-by-play.
