OC, SS; Wise, LF; Dye, RF; Thome, DH; PK, 1B; Griffey, CF; Ramirez, 2B; AJ, C; Uribe, 3B. Floyd pitching.
On Friday morning, we were talking about having to win five straight to make the playoffs because of our struggles in Minneapolis. Now, it is Monday morning, we posted a victory yesterday and we now need to win two more games to reach the postseason. Five seemed tough. Two will be tough but certainly seem much more realistic than five. We need to show up today at 1 pm and take care of business and Freddy Garcia.
There is a History There
