Evil Joe Mauer, Hold Me Closer, Tiny Dancer (Twins Hunger Games)


It was a wild night last night for the Twins Hunger Games.  As the regular players fight off the rookies and the other guys fighting for their spots, we are eliminating more and more players to find a victor. There were a few surprises in the killings last night, but a few people I expected to see go early on.

Evil Joe Mauer was out in full force and eliminated his potential competition in Chris Herrmann.  Joe filled the soaking tub with milk and dunked Herrmann like an Oreo cookie.  Jamey Carroll decided to finish what Nick Swisher had started by taking out Tsuyoshi Nishioka.  He attacked his other leg and then went in for the kill.   Trevor Plouffe whipped his locks around Rene Tosoni's neck and broke him leaving little competition to win his starting spot.  His recent hamstring injury surely 
didn't stop him from taking out the competition.

As the night ended, twelve cannons blasted with the pictures of the 12 players that had been eliminated from the Twins Hunger Games.  Now, 45 players remaining, which one will be victorious in the Twins Hunger Games?  Who will you support during the Twins Hunger Games?  They need your support!  Food, supplies and general support.  Leave your comments with who you think will be victorious!

So sad to see them out, but on the plus side, I've just realized that Luis Perdomo is my facial hair favorite!
