When you switch over to a ballgame late you never expect a run scoring parade to be happening. That’s what happened when I turned over to the Minnesota Twins/ Los Angeles California Angels of Anaheim of the United States of America of North America of Earth last night. The Twins did not have the winning unit in the run parade on Tuesday night, but will look to even the series on Wednesday evening.

First Impressions

  • Seriously, the Angels should be freaking amazing. Look at the three guys batting 2-4.
  • Surprisingly, there are some names on this Angels lineup that I’m not too familiar with.
  • Why are the Angels not such media darlings like other LA teams?
  • C.J. Cron and Grant Green are pretty legit names.
  • Take a breather, Kurt Suzuki. We got Eric Fryer tonight.
  • Kendrys finally hit a homer for me last night!
