Okay, everyone, listen up: The Twins take on Miami today at Miami. Hopefully, the trip will not wear too much on the hometown 9.

 

Pitching for the Twins: Tyler Duffey

 

And someone named Chen for Miami

 

And, with that stuff out of the way, we go on to the usual stream of consciousness known as a "game thread."

 

1. There have been both a Chief and Riverbrian sighting. I guess they're both coming out of hibernation and checking out the lay of Twins baseball this year. I'm not sure how to interpret the shadows Chief and Brian cast, other than, well, it's Twins baseball.

 

2. Anyone seen Twinsnorth? Or does Vanimal have him locked up producing SWAG for the "Whine Line?"

 

3. I'm going to be hopeful and think (expect) the Twins will produce a watchable product this year. Of course, I've not given up on the Tooth Fairy yet either.

 

4. Danny Santana. Why?

 

5. Bring back Nick Punto!

 

That's all folks!!

 

Play ball!!

Duffey goes 3 shut out innings today. No issue.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Spoiler alert. We are still evaluating Grossman as a left fielder.

I say put him and Dan San in the OF every day, until the pitchers tell the FO they are on strike!

Nah, it's part of the plan: Grossman is a late-inning pinch hitter who is replaced by Santana once Grossman gets on.

Well, shoot, Twins get a chance and fumble. Meanwhile, Duffey has runners second and third with one out.

 

This is a CBU stand-in update.

Strikes are good.

For Pitchers.

Right?

Cool pitching duel going on. 

 

Now that is something I never expected to say about the Twins this year, even in Spring Training.

I... I... I... don't want to JINX anything or anything, but... The Twins have won seven games in a row (including against WBC teams)... Pretty good for a team that lost 103 games last year,
