First Impressions

  • Kurt Suzuki drives in three runs in the two-hole and then gets demoted to seventh. Stick to your guns, Gardy!
  • We have a Jason Kubel sighting!
  • Kubel is the Twins cleanup hitter. Yikes.
  • Still no Paul Konerko, who’ll probably only play against left-handed starters, so that means Konerko will still hit about 10 pinch-hit home runs against the Twins this year.
  • The White Sox are hitting four guys in a row whose names start with an ‘a’.

Game Time

1:10 Central from U.S. Cellular Field Field in Chicago.

Can be seen on Fox Sports North and heard on the Twins Radio Network.
