First Impressions

If you go to ESPN’s game preview, they bring up the fact that David Ortiz is still pissed about the Twins letting him go. I think we’ve all let that go now, right?

Grady Sizemore is in the five hole. What is this like seven years ago?

Nunez is the DH. Real important bat there, Ron.

Santana is in centerfield. I think someone has a crush on shortstops in the outfield!

Game Time

First pitch is 7:10 central from beautiful Target Field in Downtown, Minneapolis.
