First Impressions

  • Congrats on making the All-Star Game, Kurt Suzuki! Now take a seat on the bench.
  • Former T-Wolves center Brad Miller is the shortstop for the M’s? Oh, different Brad Miller.
  • One hit wonder Corey Hart plays for the M’s? Different Corey Hart? Does he at least wear his sunglasses at night?
  • The Twins are on a slide and the guy I want on the mound to stop it is Kevin Correia. I don’t think I’m kidding.
  • I might be delusion, but this Twins lineup doesn’t look entirely horrible. Not entirely.

Game Time:

First pitch is scheduled for 9:10 Central from Safeco Field in Seattle, Washington

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