So what was everyone's favorite game one moment? Mine was when I napped through it.

Mine was when I closed the video feed while it was 0-0 in the first.

I like the Twins here. I usually only do 1 game per day, but had to do 2 today. Scaled it back a bit. $50 on Twins.

I'm a little upset to not see Colabello in the lineup. What's the point of calling him up if you aren't going to use him? He got a pinch hit opportunity in the first game but someone else could have done that.

Hardest hit ball of the season for Carroll.

Sano, Rosario, and Morales promoted to AA, in case anyone doesn't check the minor league boards.

I was at the game--so I couldn't nap--lots of Twins fans there. My favorite moment probably was the play Parmalee made off the wall on the double. Reminded me of Cuddyer. I also liked when the Twins nabbed the guy at home (surprised Doumit held on to the ball).

First time seeing Twins live in a couple of years--very unimpressed--middle infield defense is weak...

Florimon has as many home runs to right in TF now as Mauer does.

That was quite the throw by Hicks, no Yasiel Puig though.

I know there's sometimes a question about the actual age of some hispanic ballplayers, but I think that's unlikely.
