Minnesota 11, Texas 4

May 21, 2008

As awful as the Twins looked last week, the squad is still a game above .500 and just 1.5 games back of the first-place White Sox. I wonder how long they can keep this up?

The more interesting question at this point is who will head to Rochester when Scott Baker’s groin finally settles down (that’s what she said). Glen Perkins certainly made a case for himself on Tuesday to stick around, keeping the Rangers completely off balance for six innings before tiring in the seventh. Boof Bonser pitched well in his last outing and has a bit more of a major league pedigree, which leads me to believe Kevin Slowey will be sent down — assuming Perkins doesn’t regress in his next start.
