First Impressions

Hi, Josmil Pinto. How’s it going?

Happy that we really don’t have to think about Ricky Nolasco for a couple months after tonight.

Danny Santana is at short. Is the sky falling? Is this Gardenhire’s way of trying to keep his job?

Oh, never mind. Chris Herrmann is in left field.

First pitch is scheduled for 6:08 Central from Comerica Park in Detroit (Rock City), Michigan.

The game can be seen on Fox Sports North and heard across the Minnesota Twins Radio Network.
