Pittsburgh is in fourth place but a good week and they could easily be in third and more of a factor. Being on the road doesn’t help but a two gamer against a team out of the race like Minnesota could build some momentum for a big series at home against the Cubs.
Jameson Taillon is quietly having a breakout season. The last time he gave up more than 3ER was back in May and he has won his last two, at home against the Cubs and on the road against the Rockies – two good teams. No reason to think he can’t continue his run against a bad team like Minnesota, .
The Twins return home after a rough trip that included some close losses that can actually we worse than getting blown out at this time of year when there is not much to play for. Are we willing to admit Joe Mauer is done…he might not even reach last year’s seven homers. He is slugging .355.
Jake Odorizzi has been alright in his first season in Minny. He has never won more than 11 games and even getting to double digits seems unlikely this season. His hit rate is up from his days in Tampa and his homers are way up. It is looking he is not adapting well to Target Field – ERA over 5.
