    I was pulling for Lew Ford to make the roster.

    So, let's keep on the winning track today, we've got the mo.

    Let's just hope the Twins don't make Arrieta look like an All-Star like they did in the opener last year. Good start so far, Twins. I really am pulling for Hendriks to figure it out this year. I think we have a pretty good idea of what the first three pitchers are going to give us this year, but Hendriks is the wild card in the rotation.

    Won't have to face Chen or Gonzalez, that's a good start already

    Glad to see Escobar get the start. Florimon already has 2 errors. He makes some spectacular plays and blows routine ones - lack of concentration, fine instinctive play.

    Hopefully we slaughter Tillman again tomorrow. We got seven runs off him in the first inning last year, and he didn't even finish the inning.

    After the walk off... Escobar deserves the start... After the throwing yips by Florimon... He deserves a day off.

    Calling a Morneau bomb today. A good game by Escobar today and Pedro will be feeling some pressure.

    That was a really ugly AB by Hicks.

    The ump is flashing an (in)consistent zone thus far. Willingham gets a ball and then a strike on identical pitches.

    "Watching" via Gamecast on ESPN. It looks as though Mauer put up a good battle.

    I can't remember, does Hendriks have a slider?

    I don't get it. You are given a strike call on a 2 seamer off the plate and come back with a 4 seam right down the middle. Locate.
