Garver at leadoff, Cave in for Kepler, Astudillo back at 3B:

https://www.mlb.com/...tarting-lineups

1. Mitch Garver (R) C
2. Jorge Polanco (S) SS
3. Nelson Cruz (R) DH
4. Eddie Rosario (L) LF
5. C.J. Cron (R) 1B
6. Willians Astudillo (R) 3B
7. Jake Cave (L) RF
8. Jonathan Schoop (R) 2B
9. Byron Buxton (R) CF

Sorry... i had to respond just so i could see how one kept
(R) from becoming a copyright symbol.  Does it also preserve 2 spaces after a period?

What other miracles might this box perform?
I may never know...

Need to score early and often today. I’d have to think that Parker and Rogers are “no go” for sure and that may apply to Hildenberger and May as well.

BTW, I believe this is the first time a Twins home game has been scheduled to start at 18:40. This is new this year. It's my understanding that all weekday night games before Memorial Day and after Labor Day are to start at this time. I think it's to make it more conducive for families to attend on school nights.

That leaves Mejia, Harper and Vasquez. It may be time to see what these guys are made of.

Weird lineup from the Twins, as everyone seems to have noticed.

 

Kep needed a day off, he's leading the Twins with 52 AB right now. Cave is last with just 12 AB, he could use some playing time.

 

I don't mind it. Riverboat Rocco's at it again, folks!

The leadoff hitter would figure to have the most times at bat.

Good, Morris on the call. He should be all over Perez by the third pitch.

Good play by turtle. It helped to have a catcher's arm on that one.

Geez, does the shift work well enough to justify giving up hits like that?

Do people in the Twin Cities know baseball season has started?It looks there are about 500 people in the crowd, which is about what they've drawn the last two home games.Embarrassing...

I am sad as the bar i usually talk 'em into turning on the Twins game at seems to be closed for patriot's day.

But i feel "in play, no out" isn't entirely accurate if someone get's thrown out going for an extra base...
