First Impressions

  • Collin! There’s another two l’ed Collin out there. Collin Raye and I are no longer alone!
  • The Astros bullpen catcher, Jeff Murphy, has his own Wikipedia page.
  • Jesse Crian is on the disabled list with the Astros and I totally forget he was on the Astros.
  • #DeathToTheReunionTour
  • No Mauer today. That’s interesting.
  • Two shortstops in the outfield! YES! Isn’t this fun?!

Game Time

First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 from beautiful Target Field in downtown Minneapolis.

The game can be seen on FOX Sports North and heard on the Twins Radio Network.
