As if no playoff wins in 5,478 days and 15 straight postseason losses, including 12 at the hands of the Yankees, isn't enough, Minnesotans watching Saturday's 8-2 loss to the Yankees had to suffer through FOX Sports 1's broadcast crew make the Twins the punchline of a joke.
A funny joke at that:
David Ortiz: "I tell you what [Rocco] Baldelli is going to be doing tomorrow. He's going to be at Target trying to get the next pitcher for the third game."
Alex Rodriguez: "Well if Uber didn't work out, maybe Target will."
It was a reference to the Twins using Randy Dobnak, a former Uber driver, as the starting pitcher in the Game 2 loss. It didn't go well, as Dobnak was rocked for four runs on six hits and two walks in just two innings.
Game 3 is Monday in Minneapolis at 7:40 p.m. No word if Jake Odorizzi has worked at Target before, but he's scheduled to pitch with the Twins needing a win to keep their season alive.
