First Impressions

  • RIP, Darin Mastroianni.
  • Of course the Twins draw David Price. Of course!
  • Every time I see Evan Longoria I think I read Eva Longoria.
  • Eva Longoria would be an awesome distraction tactic.
  • I purpose that the Twins sign Eva Longoria to play the outfield.
  • The Twins can put another guy on waivers that way! They love doing that!
  • Speaking of waivers, no Sam Fuld in the lineup.
  • Aaron Hicks and Pedro Florimon are still in there somehow.

Game Time:

First pitch is at 6:10 Central from Glen Perkins’ favorite stadium, Tropicana Field.
