Seth, I appreciate your truly bizarre abbreviation of "Wednesday" in this thread title. :D

Revere stealing on Doumit. Almost as if it were scripted.

Revere going Tyner on us.

After this game, I think we should be able to definitively say if Correia or Lannan was a better offseason signing. Each pitcher will get two innings to prove their worth with a third inning used as a tie-breaker if needed.

Can't wait to see Revere start ripping jackjobs left and right now that he no longer has Twins coaches telling him to hit it the other way.

Really? that will tell us for sure, huh?

Chris Parmelee throwing out a runner at 3B. Nicely done.

Hicks drives one in on a sharp infield single with 2 outs.

meh...but I'd say that last run was not Correia. Colabello's glove and Willingham's speed guilty parties.

So the "Colabello for Gold Glove" campaign should hold off a bit, huh?

I don't know. The pressure of them having to go up against each other might be worse than the seventh game of a World Series, and not be indicative of anything.

I guess I should have used a :). I thought the bit about a third inning being used as a tie-breaker would give away satire.

Hicks has been putting together some nice at bats in this game. I am hoping him and Joe Benson put together an entertaining CF battle this spring.

Hey, I'm following the game on Gametracker and am wondering how Carroll's bunt didn't advance Hicks to second.

He (carroll) stepped out of the box and was ruled out

To be more specific, it was a foul bunt that hit Carroll after he stepped out of the box.

His outcomes were not good, how is the scouting report on the starter?

Lots of runs in this game but it appears that they were mostly unearned. I am glad to see that the Twins have 15 hits so far.

I still think the offense has the potential to be quite good, esp. if they stay healthy and consistent.

If this is the kind of offense this lineup can produce, I can be good with that. Although, not exactly the cleanest game on either side, fielding wise. I am sure Gardy will have something to say about those errors later on.

Good way to end the game, with three straight strikeouts. Nice work there Theilbar.

Who is this guy Theilbar? Should Perkins be looking over his shoulder?

Did he really strike out the side on 9 pitches?

Looks like the cooler, cloudy day with almost now wind woke up the bats. Or the Phillies were good at hitting them. Anyway, encouraging seeing all that hitting today. I'd say the hitters have caught up with the pitchers this spring.

Pitch tracking in ST box scores is inaccurate. A hit/out is one pitch, a K is 3, a BB is 4.
