That one could be a lot of fun to watch, or listen to for that matter.

I know we have a number of TD regulars that have trips scheduled for spring training. who do we have down in Florida this week? Anyone going to the early game? Interested in the battle for center field.

Love to see Benson step up and force his way onto the opening day roster.

I'd have gone to the game, but things at Jet Blue Park are so much different than Hammond Stadium. No one is allowed into the B game today. Seems to be alot of that over there, which leaves alot of Sox fans coming to Hammond, not thrilling us Twins fans. They come with their Sox jerseys and caps, and push to get Twins autographs. That seems to be the norm for those NE'ers.

The weather today is much like yesterday, cool, cloudy and still. We'll see if the Twins bats remain hot.

from LEN on Twitter

Alex Meyer looked sharp in his two inning stint, giving up one hit (double down the line) while striking out three.

Six up, six down for Berrios.

Wonder who these guys are facing this morning?

I agree! I am routing for Benson to open up with team.

The early game was a 4-0 loss. Wonder how many major leaguers the Bosox played in today's game? Still very nice to see that both Berrios and Meyer pitched well.

I root for all Twins to step up, but Benson especially so because there's a slight domino effect if he can claim CF: it places Mastroianni in his natural role as 4th outfielder, replacing someone defensively in late innings where they are leading and pinch-hitting (for SS) or pinch-running (for LF or 1B) when they are behind, *and* lets the GM keep Hicks in AAA for extra seasoning if that is his judgement.

Looks like Morneau is on fire so far this season. 3-run double? YUP! :)

More worried about Plouffe preforming at the major league level in the field, rather than his hitting. the guy has the tools, just can't consistently make the plays. It has to be frustrating for him along with everyone else.

Sounds like Hendriks has done alright this game. 3 shutout innings, only giving up 3 singles.

You were not kidding! This is kind of funny to watch. Now Danny Valencia and an out.

masty doubles off of Gausman.

I still think the CF job is his to lose at this point.

I hate Spring Training. The Twins offense looks so dominant, and then April will come and they'll have an offense ranked 20-30 probably.

Kevin Gausman was my pick for the Twins to take in the 2012 draft. That said, I'm really happy with the Byron Buxton selection!

Are people actually watching these games somewhere (other than in person). mlbtv.com? Just curious -- and wondering why the Phillies have been mlb network for 3 times in the last 4 days (I think) -- all except the game with the Twins.

I just have gameday going at work and take a peek every now and then to see how it's going.
I'd put it on the radio if I were at home.

I brought a radio to work so I could listen to the games.

I'm streaming the radio broadcast on mlb.tv.. There's no video for today's game.

I can't help it, but I am liking what I hear so far this spring. They are scoring runs in bunches.

Fien 1-2-3 top of the 6th, Fly out, two ground outs.

Dozier walk, Clete Thomas double, Escobar just knocked in a RBI with a sac fly.

It looks like Mauer, Morneau and Willingham all had good days at the plate today. That gives me some comfort, assuming that they can stay healthy. And Mastro was 2 for 3.
