You know, Lance Ray. Popular band in the 90s. Sang "Fly", "Every Morning" and "Someday".

I would like to see Frank have one more nice outing today. It would give us some hope for the starting pitching going into the opening weekend....

Liriano needs to stop walking the leadoff hitter...

Parker Hageman

LaVelle reports that Chris Parmelee is now in for Burroughs who "tweaked" his back getting off the bus today (and is expected to be fine).

Liriano needs to stop walking the leadoff hitter...

At least he picked him off after letting him on.

0-0 after one inning.

Mr. Ed

Ray is there, Plouffe getting extra at bats in minor league game.

Twins turn a double play to end the inning.
0-0 after 2.

I thought I read somewhere they had not had a double play all pre-season.
Is that right?
No Casila at second for this one.

Ray is there, Plouffe getting extra at bats in minor league game.

I see that in LaVelle's article now. Ray is a minor leaguer. I was confused because I'd
never seen himon the roster before.

Mr. Ed

Lance Ray has one of the sweetest swings I have seen. He'll play RF and 1B for Ft. Myers this year. He had 15 homers last year in Beloit.

Andy Leer was the 25th round pick in 2010 out of the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND.

He had an e today, and i remember he had quite a few in the OF last year too.

Hoping he can overcome that. Had some good months in lo-A last year after a slow start.

Mr. Ed
04-02-2012, 02:45 PM
1-2-3 8th for Perkins, 5-4 to the 9th.

Yeah, I woudln't say he's a better than average outfielder, for sure. E's happen to everyone, so I can't say he's bad because he had an error, but he's definitely more of a hitter than a fielder. Has a good, accurate arm.

Did Hughes really move over to SS? Interesting.

I like Lance Ray. Total breakout candidate this year.

Hughes really hit a homer!

Mr. Ed
04-02-2012, 02:50 PM
Hughes solo HR off George Jenson, 6-4 Twins.

The best hitter I saw last year in a Snapper uni was Arica, then it was a big drop to Ray as second. That is more about Oswaldo then about Ray. (Besides you got to love saying Oswaldo, if this was the 90's there would have had to have been a cheesy game on the "Jumbotron" around wheres Oswaldo? Between the Hotdog song and the Great Tire race.)

He's played there a few times this spring.

Mr. Ed
04-02-2012, 02:54 PM
And Capps gives up a 2 R HR to Cody Rogers


He is not going to be good this year,either.I don't see it happening.

woolhouse
04-02-2012, 02:56 PM
So Gameday says "In play, run(s)" on Capps getting Carlos Pena to fly out to end the ninth... I really hope these bugs are fixed by the end of spring training... if they're trying to get me to spend money on MLB.tv, I would, if they wouldn't blackout Twins' games!

Looks like the Rays didn't want to play one more inning, so the game ends in a tie.
