Der Twains Ist Back?

A paragraph at the end of this article really does a good job of summing up exactly why the twins have struggled so much his season...

Gardenhire put out his 64th different batting order Friday due to all of the Twins' injuries. He has not used any one batting order more than twice this season, and the Opening Day lineup has not taken the field at home yet this season. But getting Mauer and Nishioka back should begin to make things easier on his filling out the lineup card.

"It's not easy, but you just have to kind of ad lib a little bit," Gardenhire said. "Kind of break the lineup up a bit and see what happens."

Yes, a different batting order ever game. In other words, the Twins haven't been the Twins since opening day. Just a tad bit of 'ad libbing' going on when you practically replace the team with the minor roster. Every year is the same story of battling injuries but this year has just seemed ridiculous.

But things are finally turning around! The Twins are 14 of their last 16! Finally nice to see Gardy pull some good ol Minnesota magic out of his hat again. It's also been really fun to see Nishioka back too.

Go Twins!
