Minnesota Twins Game 72: Lineups and First Impressions


Credit: Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

I think this one is going to start on time. Yesterday’s game was virtually a West Coast game without actually being on the West Coast, after the lengthy rain delay. It’s been sunny in Minnesota for most of the day and there should really be no weather to speak of. Maybe we want weather if that means multiple RBI from Joe Mauer.

First Impressions

  • Oswaldo Arcia is back! Hooray!
  • This division is horrid. Like really, really horrid.
  • Jose Abreu just another Twins killer in waiting. Hell, he’s not really even waiting.
  • Can we get an Adam Dunn/Kendrys Morales foot race? I really just want to see Morales in a foot race.
  • Do it again, Mauer. Make me believe you are still a darn good ballplayer. Do it.

Game Time

First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 Central from beautiful Target Field in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.

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