    Hopefully a big day for Hendriks... May shake something up here.

    Looking forward to Carroll's Box today. With Casilla batting (and playing) well and Dozier (perhaps) in the mix now, will Carroll continue to get one base this week and will he be anemic with the bat? I predict 0/2 with a walk.
    Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.

    Jackson's base hit really showed up Carroll's limited range at SS

    Rookie mistake by Revere to not let foul ball drop allowing a SF instead of strike 2

    Solid first inning for Hendriks. Three ground balls and a weak fly out into foul territory. Great grab by Revere.

    It's spring training. I think they'd rather have him catch the ball and move the game along. Good opportunity to test his arm anyway.

    Yeah. Just hope that he does not make a habit of that during the season.

    Also depends on the situation/score. Early in the game, go for the out.

    Hughes doing exactly what the Twins need him to do. Coming up against a lefty with runners on base, taking a good at-bat and cranking one.

    Wrong... in the first inning, you get the out, especially with the middle of the order coming up. Gotta get outs early in the game.

    I agree get the outs early when you can! Plus Doyle back to Chicago is great. Didn't want them wasting a roster spot on him.

    Shipley tweeted that Blackburn pitched 4 innings in the class A game against the Red Sox' class A team and gave up one run, 4 hits, one walk and had 3 Ks.

    Didn't Craig Monroe completely light us up in spring training his first year with another team also?

    Yes, he did. 7 of 14 with 4 HR's, 3 HR's off 3 hits in one game.
    However, I'd be careful not to try to compare Craig Monroe with Delmon Young, especially in their ST following leaving MN.
