    On the bright side, at least Pelfrey looks really sharp.

    Florimon and Morneau better get their defense sorted. Two unearned runs isn't helping matters one bit.

    Florimon has to play D or he serves no purpose.

    Given their respective ages, I'm fine with giving Florimon the first shot at the starting job, and I'd not be ready to pull the plug after three games. But to me Escobar is the one with greater promise in the long run, probably as a utility infielder but he could dial it up and win a starting job eventually.

    I see Florimon as being out of baseball in a couple of years if he can't make the most of this opportunity right now.

    Not a great first week for Hicks so far. 0-9, six Ks.

    Hicks hasn't even made contact (fouled off) with an off speed pitch yet, I believe.

    Florimon is actually making me miss Little Nicky and Alexi Casilla.

    Just tried to compare minor league stats for Florimon and Escobar, and my goodness they are similar. Escobar's two years younger, Florimon's been at bit better at taking a walk, but otherwise they seem virtually identical with the bat and on the bases.

    After three innings we got us a new game... Hopefully this new game will include better Twins defense.

    Hammer on pace for 54 homers.

    In all seriousness, the ball must really be dead in the air. That homer didn't clear by much and was hit on the screws.

    I love the first week of baseball... Free MLB extra innings... Between innings I can turn over to any game and I just had a question/thought.

    Is it possible to watch Lucas Duda bat without Camp Town Races coming into your head?
