Some home cooking did not help the Minnesota Twins on Monday night. If the pitching matchup has any indication on how Tuesday will go, well, I don’t like how Tuesday might go for the Twins. The home dugout at Target Field sends out the very highly paid Ricky Nolasco (4-6, 5.74 ERA) while the visiting clubhouse will be throwing James Shields (8-3, 3.79 ERA) on the mound.

- It’s an off-day for Brian Dozier. Another way to jump start that run scoring problem.
- Not crazy with Eduardo Nunez being the leadoff guy.
- Parmelee has been putting together a nice string of games. Love seeing him in the lineup because of that.
- I don’t think in the ideal world for the Royals that they had Moustakas hitting eighth.
- Raul Ibanez making his KC debut tonight at Target Field.
- Billy Butler has the best nickname in the game and will forever. Country Breakfast 4EVA!
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 from beautiful Target Field in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The game can be seen on FOX Sports North, who I hear is putting together a lot of All-Star Game content, I don’t know if you’ve heard about it yet. The game can also be heard on the Twins Radio Network.
