I'm impressed by Granite and willing to give him a few more at-bats. 

 

Good discipline at the plate. He's closer to ready than most prospects I've seen arrive... He just needs to see a few more MLB Talent pitches to adjust to.

I think he's a fourth OF, but judging him already is funny, from the crowd that wants Buxton not to be judged yet..

One of the best opening day rosters in years. Now go get 'em.

Same crowd, eh?

Hard to say with certainty, it was a generalization on a message board, not a PHD paper.

I was at this game... so when we play Houston, we're 1-0 when I attend and 0-5 when I don't.  Clearly on to something here.

 

Also, was fairly surprised to see a few hundreds Twins fans at Minute Maid. I received many friendly (and some unfriendly) jabs from the Houston crowd as I strutted around in my red Killebrew jersey.

Very heads-up baserunning by Rosario (and/or basecoaching by Smith) on that double. Although, Altuve was pretty slow getting up after that dive - I won't take anything away from him on that, since it might have shaken him up for a little moment, but had he popped to his feet faster he would have given Eddie a little more to think (legitmately or not) about when rounding first.

You can't take it with you. So don't go.
