Kirilloff not listed in the lineup now... replaced in it by Jimmy Kerrigan.


Wow. For a minute I thought it was Nancy Kerrigan.

I really want Kirilloff to have a healthy year. His wrist problems last season (and Tommy John recovery in 2017) make me want to see if a healthy Kirilloff can repeat his awesome 2018 season.

Seems like it was Stashak. As for the tendon, if he can play on it, why bother fixing it?

 

I guess Stashak's value just went down, eh?;)

Maybe comment like that is why they aren't saying....

 

I guess no news is good news on the tendon, then. It just seems that it would be mentioned somewhere, even if it is to say the tendon still ins't a problem, and doesn't look to be in the future.

Maybe he's just tendontive.

8-0 in 3rd? 4 hits? 3 errors?

Not exactly the cleanest of games?

The Tigers prospects won in a 5-4 walkoff victory against Southeastern University, a NAIA school... Twins currently up 16-0.... It seems that the Tigers won’t be good for a while longer.....

Edit: 6 of their starting lineup have played Major League Baseball in the past....

Just got back to the hotel from the game. Couple thoughts:

 

Royce Lewis is not a small man. I kinda pictured him to be a skinny string-bean, but he's a big dude. He looked great, although so did everyone against the very over-matched gophers.

 

Rooker should be fine, but he really had a scare there on that bean-ball. Rocco was out along with the trainers, and Rooker got up and walked off with seemingly no issues.

 

Saw Sano, Arraez, Polanco, and Adrianza up on the dugout wall cheering on the Twins during the early innings. They were up on the rail and joking around, having a great time. Nice to see those guys supporting the prospects!

 

Did not see Donaldson, Cruz, Kepler, Buxton, Garver, or any other Twins of note in the dugout.

 

It was cold. Freezing, in fact! It's been absolutely perfect all week, but today's been very chilly and it was unfortunate to have the ballgame this evening.

 

Overall it was an awesome experience. Great to see and hear baseball in such an intimate setting. I was a couple rows behind the Twins dugout and you could clearly hear just about everything, it was awesome.

 

I have some pix I'll post if my hotel's crappy internet improves, but I'll probably have to wait until tomorrow when I switch condos.

FYI... Kirilloff's wife had a baby today. That is why he was not in the lineup tonight. Pretty good reason, I'd say.

How long are you there for? Today was most definitely cold, but it will warm up tomorrow and Sunday should be a nice day for a game :)

I think I'll be in the area Sunday, but as of now I don't have plans to attend the game! I'll be driving to spend a few days up in Tampa by Monday night....

 

You going Sunday?
