Well, the Twins are sending their slump-buster out to the mound today.

I think the twins can win today. But I think the only way we can is if corriea gets pulled early before the tigers put up a crooked number.

I'm sensing a football score today. 10-2 sounds about right.

I don't agree. That implies the Twins defense will do something good, like get a safety.

I'm just glad to see that game threads are back.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

In honor of KC maybe I will put up my prior Sunshine avatar when he starts, for the benefit of all the readers old enough to know the reference.

Who's to say eddavis didn't imply the opposite? A TD and FG for the Twins and KC gets sacked in the end zone?

Same lineup as Game 1, right? Looks like Gardy wants to go with a set middle infield, rather than by committee. Maybe he'll do a platoon split versus lefties?

Now you're implying that the Twins defense will do something really good. Madness. Cats and dogs, living together.

Kevin Correia's arm was just described as "fresh".

Well, that's one way to put it, I suppose.

I can barely contain my excitement over the pregame sugarcoating about to be directed at today's starter.

Maybe he's been reading TwinsDaily......and receiving Pseudo's ads.

In honor of Worley's "first clean inning" prognostication, when do we get our first HR?

I'll say:
4/4/13 - Inning 7

I've tried to be positive about this team in recent weeks but Jesus, 9+ innings in and I already hate these guys.

I can't tell if you're talking about the team, or Dickbert.



Or both.

Correia did good -- now let's score a lot of runs on Sanchez.

So stop watching, stop writing and stop caring?

a lot of the negativity on this board sucks and it it tends to detract from its appeal.


Or we could grossly overreact to a few one-liner quips in a game thread.

Hicks has a great eye. He and Mauer at the top of the order could really run up pitch counts.
