Twins win Twins win

I completely love the balance of this lineup. People may overlook Tony Batista because he is not a complete player, but when you combine the batting averages of Rondell White Luis Castillo and Batista the average of the 3 makes for a solid player who has better stats then Luis Rivas Matthew LeCroy and Michael Cuddyer. But more important then the overall net gain at the three positions is the fact that these are batters that force the pitcher to feel a little stress as they all bring a real threat of helping the Twins score runs.

While they won't score 13 runs a game it appears that we are going to be capitalizing on every base runner we get, and if we can do that our pitching will easily take care of the rest. We may have some good division rivals, but that doesn't change the fact that we have easily one of the top 5 teams in baseball.

Note: Expect me to post more and more on the Twins and less on politics as the season continues. When you invest upwards 3 hours most evenings watching baseball you have significantly less time to search for minor political news, I'm sure I'll get around to posting on every political story I find important, but it may be less frequent.
