Minnesota Twins Game 24: Lineups and First Impressions


I won’t kid myself. A grand majority of Twins fans are going to be tuned to a hockey game tonight. I will be, too. There’s no shame in supporting the skating W’s especially in a Game 7.

On the Twins front, Wednesday’s game determines if the Twins will have a winning month or not. Either way, winning or .500, I think all Twins will take this start to the season as a positive.

  • Eduardo Escobar is in the starting lineup. I am happy.
