Hurray! Casilla's slap-hitting successor makes his Twins debut tonight.

I can't wait for get-away day lineups that include

Escobar(2nd)
Florimon(SS)
Carroll (3B)
Butera ©

When you "emphasize defense" with slap hitters like this, is it any wonder the Twins only have 55 wins, and will lose over 90 in back/back seasons?

Sano has no hope in this org. Gardy will freak over his D and leave him AAA to rot. ;)

I noticed on the Twins.mlb.com website that this is a "Free Game" on mlb.tv (for us cheapskates who don't subscribe to the regular package).

This is just the kind of slap hitting we've been looking for lately.

And after another touchdown, Parmelee tacks on a field goal!

So who scores more, the Twins tonight, or the Vikings on Sunday?

What is this team in blue scoring runs tonight? Every once in a while they dust us with opiates.
