SOMEWHERE AWESOME — Well it was just what the Twins needed. On a nightly basis, the Twins starting staff has been letting the game get out of hand early, putting the offense in a hole that was impossible to climb out of. The only thing they didn’t do is tell the offense to put the lotion in the basket while they were down in the hole.
Enter Scott Diamond.
In his first start after being called up from Triple-A Rochester, Diamond did something no Twins starter had accomplished yet this season: hold the other team scoreless. For that, it was a pretty easy choice for the committee here at TTBB to add him to the prestigious Scorpion Jacket Hall of Excellence.
Congrats Scott. You’ve now been enshrined in TTBB’s SJHOE along with the other members found here.
