    Spring Training Game Thread: Twins v Rays, 3/18/14 @ 6:05pm

    Okay, I refuse to call this a 'pre-season.' It's Spring Training. Here are the lineups:

    I was was trying to be creative but y'all can tilt your heads sideways, yes? I'm here. It's beautiful, sunny and 75 degrees. More later ... chatter on!

    3-0, men on 2nd and 3rd, two outs in the first. Worley gets the third out on a deep fly to right. Tidy little 25-pitch inning.

    In related news, Sam Deduno and Scott Diamond just relaxed a little bit.

    Hey Ashbury, get loose- you're pinch-hitting if Worley's still in the game for the second inning.

    Rays lineup seems pretty much like what I'd expect in the regular season. I wouldn't be terribly surprised if Kubel and Presley don't crack the opening day lineup

    First game I have been able to watch this season, baseball really is back!

    Worley not looking good again, 3 doubles, a walk, 3 runs, and 2 outs so far. I think his days on the team are numbered.

    I remember last year that someone (Philly fan) posted about how much we'd enjoy Worley (especially his personality) -- hasn't happened yet.

    Getting Nothing for Ben Revere.

    Essentially Giving Revere away could haunt us for the next decade.

    Speeed and EVERYDAY leadoff hitter is underrated NO he's not a CF but DH ing Revere or putting him in Left Field next yr..... Willingham's replacement WOULD OF BEEN SUPER SUPER SUPER

    SUPER

    SUPER

    SUPER

    Nice thing to have in the back pocket.

    Now here comes years and years and years of Twins mediocrity coupled with sano's elbow injury.
    Top Twins prospects ? 1.Byron Buxton (OF-A+)
    2.Miguel Sano (3B-AA) 3.Alex Meyer (SP-AA) 4. Kohl Stewart (SP-RK) 5. Nick Gordon (SS-RK) 6. J.O. Berrios (P-A) 7. Josmil Pinto (C-AAA) 8. Eddie Rosario (2B-AA) 9. L. Thorpe (SP-RK) 10. Travis Harrison (3B-A) 11.Kennys Vargas (1B-A+) 12. Trevor May (SP-AA) 13. Jorge Polanco (2B-A) 14. Max Kepler (OF-A) 15. Miguel Sulbaran (SP-A) Just Missed:P Zach Jones, SS Aderlin Mejia, P Stephen Gonsalves, C Stuart Turner.

    So Deduno is the likely the 5th starter with Worley heading for AAA after every team passes on him. Diamond gets slotted as the long man in the bullpen. I think they still like Diamond.

    Phil Hughes threw 6 innings and about 75 pitches this afternoon. Only 1 run I believe. I was back and forth, watching Hunter Harvey throw on the other diamond.

    He did get Longoria on a called 3rd strike. The ump looks to have a high strike zone tonight.

    Worley... The Vanimal!!!

    They used to to call him the Vanimal!!!

    They don't call him that anymore. He's become the Damnable!!!

    I like the chances of May contributing in the rotation or at least pen. Revere was exciting, but he isn't going to haunt anyone and wasn't that big a loss.

    Which way's the wind blowing? I'm not facing him unless it's blowing out. He's unhittable otherwise.

    Revere isn't exactly going to haunt us the same way that Papi has...

    Sounds about right to me. I think they will be trying to move Duensing and Corriea to open up spots sooner than later.

    Hey Look! Worley gave up a hit!!

    Some of this difference is that we're facing Matt Moore, and they're facing well you know.

    OK, my bet is that Worley doesn't make it to the 3rd inning. Any takers?
