For Pinks!

Tuesday night, the 2008 MLB season continues! The Chicago White Sox host the Minnesota Twins in a winner-take-all battle for the American League Central Division title. What could be more fitting for the division that nobody can quite seem to win?

The game is scheduled to begin at 7:35 PM and will be televised by TBS.

Right-hander Nick Blackburn starts for the Twins. He has an 11-10 record with a 4.14 ERA.
Blackburn is 2-2 with a 5.28 ERA this season vs. the Sox.
The Twins as a team are batting .280 this season.

Left-hander John Danks starts for the Sox. He has an 11-9 record with a 3.47 ERA.
Danks is 2-3 with a 6.88 ERA this season vs. the Twins.
The Sox are batting .263 this season.

This is what it is all about, the last day of the season and the division title up for grabs!

I will be watching all the action rooting for the Twins. Why?

The Twins lost 3 of their top players to free agency in the off season but still contended for the division. They play the game hard, they play pesky, they play looking for every advantage, and they play the game with respect.

Oh yes, the Twins definitely wear white hats under those blue caps with the TC on the front.

Come on Twins, strike a big blow for underdogs everywhere, strike a blow for winning on a small payroll. Show the baseball world that not just the Rays are the big story of 2008 in MLB.

GO TWINS!
