Watched the Twins beat Oakland today before work. Was interested to see how the newly-acquired Shannon Stewart would fit into the lineup. The one time he was walked and got on base, he sure caused some consternation for the pitcher. That was late in the game, though, and the Twins had already capitalized on four Oakland errors. The team looked fired-up, though and ready to go out and play their hearts out. I'll be attending the game tomorrow and Saturday so I'll have a good look at how they're doing as a whole. Still 7.5 games behind Kansas City but picked up a half a game on the White Sox to get into a second-place tie with tonight's win.
