Saturday Study Session: Twins-Yanks Gamer II

Read this stat on Yahoo Sports: “Rodriguez is 4 for 4 with two homers and 14 RBIs following international (sic)
walks to Teixeira, according to STATS LLC.”  I hope that opposing managers continue to avoid Tex to get to the “unclutch” guy.

Francisco Liriano and Andy Pettitte both have sparkling numbers for the season so far, but Liriano last start was a stinker against Baltimore and Pettitte is coming off the DL.  Lineups to follow, comment away.

  • twins announcer A, “last year it was nick swisher and his wacky pie’s to the face that brought the club together and catapulted them to a 27th world series title.”
    twins announce B, “or possibly it was the half a billion dollars in off season free agent contracts. but sure, the pie’s to face was probably just as important.”
    classic.
