If you click on the link, you can see that they are already sending a lot of guys who are competing for spots. Three 4th OF candidates. Lots of back-of-the-bullpen options... All the middle infield guys fighting for jobs. And several of the young WBC guys too.

Is the ten-run rule in effect when this Murderers' Row takes the field?

But, all seriousness aside, it is GREAT to see this first game-posting of the year.:jump:

Apparently every spring training game is on local radio this year.

Nice to the see the start of games. Do not put much stock into this until the 3rd week and some of the players have played their way back to Rochester or New Britian.

That's quite possibly the opening day lineup but for catcher, 3rd and 1st base. Morneau told me he'd be playing sunday.

Top of the 1st, Eduardo Escobar and Josh Willingham each singled in the inning, but the Twins did not score.

Bottom of the 1st, Kevin Correia got a weak grounder to 1B (Colabello), a pop-up to short left field (caught by Willigham), and a broken bat grounder to 3B (Escobar).

(Zach Britton replaced by Jake Arrieta) Top of the 2nd, Chris Colabello lines out to the right field corner. Brian Dozier grounded out to 3B. Drew Butera drew a 7 pitch walk. Pedro Florimon lined out to the gap in left-center.

PS - Cory Provus is awesome!

Is there a link to the radio stream or is it blacked out over the internet?


(edit: posted a link to hear the game online but now my posts are being moderated, hmm...)

96.3 FM is the new radio home of the twins.

Listening live is not an option without a subscription. Tried Ktwin's site, but they are just playing music online. I had to break out the radio and listen the old fashioned way.

It sounds like summer, even with the ground covered with white.

Bottom of the 2nd (Correia remains in the game) - Adam Jones grounds out to 2B (Dozier). Matt Weiters doubled down the right field line. Chris Davis singles up the middle (Dozier dove up the middle to make the stop, but he had no play). JJ Hardy hit a sac fly to CF to score Weiters. Manny Machado walked. Chris Dickerson grounds out to 2B.

1-0 Baltimore after 2.

Going to have to fire up two devices in a few minutes... Twins on mlb.com and Hawkeyes/Huskers hoops are only on BTN2Go.

On the other hand, it probably doesn't matter much cuz I'm going to be headed out to visit my daughter who's playing a Gangster in "Kiss Me Kate" at her college tonight.

Ah... the sacrifices we make as parents!

what more can we ask for.Willingham starts up right where he left off and Correia has an ERA of only 4.50 Looks like it is time to end spring training and start the season.

Yeah... actually I'm looking forward to seeing the play (again... went last night, too). There's really nothing as hilarious as seeing your daughter as a gangster. :)
