Minnesota Twins 2020 postseason preview [Houston Astros, Zack Greinke, Kenta Maeda]
Twins and Astros postseason preview episode, hosted by Derek Wetmore, and made possible by members of the 5 Thoughts newsletter - 5ThoughtsBaseball.com. *Why Zack Greinke should give you pause if you're a Twins fan, and one little known reason why I consider him a legend. *Kenta Maeda was great for the Twins, and he gets Game 1. *Astros hitters slumped this year, for the most part, after their offseason of being exposed as a team of cheaters. *Justin Verlander and Yordan Alvarez are two key pieces missing in Houston. The MLB postseason is here. Technically not October, according to the calendar, but here on the 5 Thoughts baseball podcast we don't get caught up on semantics, OK?
