    It seems like this offseason lasted forever and I am glad that we are now getting back to actual baseball. Go Twins!

    Mauer is definitely better than Torii but as you listed there, it gets pretty ugly after that point...

    Still, I'm slightly bullish on the Twins lineup this season. I think they'll be somewhere around middle-of-the-road with the ability to narrowly make the top five if things go right, narrowly miss the top ten if things go horribly wrong (again).

    Worley vs. Verlander.... why is it I have a feeling it's going to be a long season in the pitching department.

    Yep. The first game of every series will have its game thread in the "series preview". I don't see the point in creating a second thread for what is essentially conversation about the first game of the series.

    During the team intros, the Tigers got "Jessica" by the Allman Brothers. Awesome. The Twins got something unlistenable. C'mon! (had to find something to whine about.)

    Looking at the fans in the stands, I'm quite happy that I didn't try to pick up tickets for today's game.

    That sounds logical, but I was pretty confused.

    Appealing to Joe Mauer for the strike call. I like that.

    Ugh. Dozier running the wrong direction and missed an easy play.

    Understandable why it happened but ugh.

    Worley not looking good and defense not looking good. Twins win 10 games all year.

    Not possible to edit an article? Not good form to change content in reaction to comments of course, but to fix a glitch seems worth it.

    Wow, you did not take long to sour on this season. Let's hope for a double play here.

    Dozier in the 8th slot makes for a potentially decent comp as well, unless you are forecasting really bad things.
