Minnesota Twins Game 44: Lineups and First Impressions


The Minnesota Twins are currently a game over .500 and are 10-10 on the road. This means one thing: the Twins are consistent at being mediocre. Mediocre is good though, since none of us expected mediocre. I’ll take this and run with it.

First Impressions

  • Danny Santana in the starting nine and at short? It’s a miracle! A San Diego Chicken miracle!
  • I see you, ex-Twin Rene Rivera hitting eight and catching.
  • I can’t say I thought that Chris Parmelee would be batting cleanup anytime this season at the major league level, but here we are.
  • Remember when Chase Headley was going to be a star? He’s currently hitting .194 in 29 games.

Game Time

First pitch is 8:10 Central from unique Pecto Park in San Diego, California.
