Revere stealing on Doumit. Almost as if it were scripted.
Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.

After this game, I think we should be able to definitively say if Correia or Lannan was a better offseason signing. Each pitcher will get two innings to prove their worth with a third inning used as a tie-breaker if needed.

Can't wait to see Revere start ripping jackjobs left and right now that he no longer has Twins coaches telling him to hit it the other way.

Chris Parmelee throwing out a runner at 3B. Nicely done.

Hicks drives one in on a sharp infield single with 2 outs.

meh...but I'd say that last run was not Correia. Colabello's glove and Willingham's speed guilty parties.

So the "Colabello for Gold Glove" campaign should hold off a bit, huh?
I opine about the Twins and Kernels regularly at Knuckleballsblog.com while my alter ego, SD Buhr covers the Kernels for MetroSportsReport.com.

I don't know. The pressure of them having to go up against each other might be worse than the seventh game of a World Series, and not be indicative of anything.

I guess I should have used a :). I thought the bit about a third inning being used as a tie-breaker would give away satire.

Hicks has been putting together some nice at bats in this game. I am hoping him and Joe Benson put together an entertaining CF battle this spring.

Hey, I'm following the game on Gametracker and am wondering how Carroll's bunt didn't advance Hicks to second.

To be more specific, it was a foul bunt that hit Carroll after he stepped out of the box.
