    The nice thing is he hit.243 last year so even improving to just .280 should win us an extra game or 2.

    Except for Swarzak's outing, it seems like most of the Twins pitchers have come into ST ready to go.

    Question is whether they can keep improving.

      Instant replay will be available for today's game at Hammond. Gardy will be in Sarasota, so any challenges fall on Steinbach/Molitor.
    Does this mean the team still hasn't hammered out who's firstmate on this ship? Or simply that Provus doesn't know?

    Steinbach is managing at Hammond and Molitor is his bench coach, I believe.

    Another solid out by Hicks driving in a run. 3 solid at bats.

    Please try to remember this scenario in the regular season when we need a rally in the 9th.

    Gibson gets credit for giving up a hit on a pop fly lost in the sun follows it up by a double play and a strikeout. Great inning.

    By opinion after watching a split squad version of this team for 4 and a half inning. Theres a chance it could take 5 or 6 games, but we will win the World Series.

    Boy, Gibson looked very sharp in that inning. Firing bullets down in the zone.

    It really sounds like that should have been an error on Escobar, but it sounds like he lost it in the sun. No harm really, except Gibson may have one more hit than he deserves in ST.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Yeah it hit glove, but if they give a hit when the fielder never sees it hard to give an error when the fielder finds it and gives as good of an effort as he could at that point. I don't understand for the pitchers sake why thats not considered a team error though.

    I don't think you can safely extrapolate to 5 or 6 games, simply from 4.5 innings. Baseball isn't played on paper.

    Mitchell hits one out after his earlier sac fly. Fun to see someone take advantage of opportunities.

    But it sure is a lot more fun watching the Twins so far in ST than the last few seasons have been.

    I'll take it for as long as I can get it!

    True, but in the case of split squad games half of them are being played inside of boxscores on the internet which will probably be printed on paper in the morning.
