Jason Castro is battling a minor knee injury.

But it's nothing structural and he is considered day-to-day. Mitch Garver will start at catcher and bat sixth Tuesday night against the Blue Jays.

 

 

If you were wondering why Garver has been playing more often the past couple days, this is probably why.

I feel good about tonight's game. It's always darkest just before the dawn.

 

And man...it's really dark out there. pitch-black.

What did we do to deserve this lineup?


Most likely you were born into a family of Twins fans. Sorry.

It's been a fun year so far, GO Twins.

It's your parents fault! They should have been from Oregon. :). (For all I know they are)


Oregon is great. Good advice

Who else besides you?

This is a contest Chief.  We have multiple representatives to ensure an unbiased game.  It's a Twins Daily standard.

Don't complain.  Pick your players and numbers.  Big money on the line tonight.  

 

Pick your click, broken bats, strike outs.  A whole new world has opened up to you in your game thread experience.

With this lineup, and the way they've played the last 2 weeks, as well as Toronto's track record in this stadium, it's hard to believe that the Twins are fairly heavy betting favorites tonight.

does domino's still give out free pizzas for no hitters?

Not sure. That's a Dominoes game.  Not sure if they have a Game Thread experience.
