Twins sweep Nats, prepare for D-Backs

The Twins went out and executed this week sweeping the Washington Nationals, the team with the NL's worst record. The sweep was needed to get over .500, keep up with the White Sox sweep of the Pirates, and gain momentum as the Arizona Diamondbacks head to town.

This young Diamondbacks club is having a great season and will be a very tough challenge for the Twins this weekend. For the first month of the season, Arizona was hands down the best team in baseball, after a rough may they've seemed to turn it around but have had ample opportunities to run away with the weak NL West division, but only remain 4.5 games ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The strength of this club lies in its pitching. Tonight Scott Baker will take the mound for the Twins and gets to faceoff against the ageless wonder, Randy Johnson. Sunday the Twins face 2006 Cy Young Winner, Brandon Webb.

Tonight Michael Cuddyer will be suffering from "Randy Johnson-itis" as Ron Gardenhire calls it, as he will be missing the game due the birth of his first child. I however will be at the game and I'm quite excited to watch the most intimidating pitcher in my lifetime The Big Unit take the mound against the Twins. Let's hope we can keep some of that offense from yesterday!

It's also Dan Gladden Bobblehead night tonight, so I better get my act together and get to the dome early to pick up my miniature Dazzle Man.

If any of you were worried, I checked yesterday to see what happened to the Metrodome section "Rincon's Kids" ever since his released. The section has been eliminated, leaving only "Reyes' Ninos" and "Cuddy's Buddys." For further proof examine exhibit A.
