Up until tonight’s no hitter on the arm of Francisco Liriano, things haven’t been so good for the Twins. Some may say the issue is injuries (heck, I’ve even said that), but I feel the issue is more sinister after seeing this:
That’s Jim Thome, and no, that mustache is not real. In the past few months, we have lost the Pavanostache, the shortlived Morneaustache, and now Minnesota is subjected to the Thome/Bunyan Simustache. Terrible. Haven’t Minnesotans been through enough?
Oh, and it serves him right, reports are that Thome is headed for the DL.
