Luke Hughes with a 1st inning HR, his fourth of the spring, to give the Twins a 1-0 lead. Fair to say he's seeing the ball pretty well right now!

In the offseason GM Handbook, I worte that I thought the Twins should give Luke Hughes that 2B job with Alexi Casilla as the utility guy. I still like that plan.

exciting lineup today!
Nice to see Blackburn again.. it's been a while.
Revere's speed is needed at least off the bench, Utility OF? That is, if the Parmelee RF day 3 experiment continues to go well.
Benson further auditions his talents.
hughes and Burroughs are under a spot light today.
exciting stuff!

Pitching duel between Blackburn and Lohse? Whoda thunk it?


Oops... or not.

Dozier with a perfect bunt single down the 3B line.

Hughes is making a bit of a statement. Another RBI.

And here comes his Aussie buddy James Beresford to run for him.

Hughes has definitely shown that he wants to play.

Benson now in LF with Aaron Hicks playing CF. Beresford is at 2B now.

Rain Delay...

If Carroll doesn't hit once the season starts, have to wonder how long it would be before you'd see Casilla back at SS and Hughes at 2B.

Tarp on the field for 6 minutes before the sun comes out... ahhhh gotta love Florida weather.

I'd expect an infield of Dozier at SS and Hughes at 2B... although Carroll will get plenty of string, and he should.

Benson just struggles to make contact. Not a good sign.

Yeah he'll have to figure that out in Rochester.

Rain Delay #2 is done, they're playing again with Brendan Wise on the mound.

As Brad Thompson is struggling, Eden Prairie, UM and Twins minor leaguer Cole DeVries is warming up.

Nick Blackburn gave up the first runs of the spring for him today... cue all the experts to run their "Blackburn sucks" posts again.
