    actually looking forward to this game... Looks like battle of the backups, all fighting for their spot on the bench. hoping to see Parmelee really bring it, I was really high on that guy last year. Also looking forward to see if Alexi and Revere can keep their solid spring going.

    Game looks to be on MLB network today

    Backups? Twins have at least 5 guys in the line-up who will get regular at bats, plus one their top arms on the mound

    your right.... would floaters be more appropriate?

    I can't disagree with that. Revere, Carroll, doumit, Valencia, and Casilla are all regulars, but they are all floaters. If baker is healthy he will be good. He will be injured though

    I see that Gardy is keeping up his pattern of not playing Mauer in a day game after a night game....

    Twins up 1-0 after the 1st. Doumit scored Revere from 3rd on a GO and Baker pitched a nice and easy 1-2-3 inning

    Nice hit through the middle on a 91 mph Fastball, then a hit by Carroll and a double steal on a botched pick off play

    Baker pitches a hit-less second inning. One walk. Very effective change up. His fast ball still peaked at 88 but started at 84-85. Still early in the Spring

    Good to hear Revere had a successful bunt. That's going to be key for him this season.

    Completely agree. Forcing infielders to play in on him should allow him to slap some more ground balls through the infield. Every last little bit of OBP is important for Ben.

    If Revere is forced to play against the Yankees when CC Sabathia is pitching, he should literally be bunting every at-bat (well, maybe not literally). With a huge pitcher on the mound, A-Rod at third and Teixeira at first, the opportunities are endless.

    Carroll walks and steals second, Doumit strikes out, Parmelee walks to fill the bases with 2 outs for Danny V.
