I’m reporting on this game before these two teams play the first game of their series on Monday. Most recently, the Twins finished off three consecutive wins to close their series with the White Sox after losing the opener.
The Cardinals also polished off a sweep of the Cubs and are all alone in first place in the NL Central.
The Twins aren’t going to take off unless Miguel Sano comes back healthy, happy and fit. Reports are that he’s a long way from there. Until then, I’m looking at them as primarily a team to fade.
Jake Odorizzi is striking out more batters than he has for the previous three seasons. He only K’ed more in 2011, when he was the Rookie of the Year in the American League.
St. Louis Cardinals
You can count the number of starting pitchers who would be a favorite against Carlos Martinez at Busch Stadium on one hand, however.
His ERA is microscopic (1.40), which is almost three times as good as the average starting pitcher in baseball. His walk and strikeout numbers are on par with what he’s done of recent and he’s given up exactly one home run in 45 innings.
He’s given up seven earned runs and four of them came on Opening Day. Since, Martinez has given up three earned in over 40 innings of work.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction: it’s the Birds or nothing.
The problem is St. Louis will be expensive, possibly too expensive to play. If you believe in Odorizzi, the under is there.
