We're really going to trot out Hernandez and his 86 mph lefthanded meatball against all those righthanded boppers? Really? Instead of Hendriks? I preditct 2 of Trout, Pujols, and Trumbo homer off him.

Brock, you should update the Twins rotation for the series as I believe that it is Correia, Pelfrey and Worley.

FWIW I've got my KC Sunshine avatar up, expressly for Correia.

At least the Twins won't face Weaver in this series. That no hitter last year was not fun.

The Twins bats really need to get well, and if they can't against Joe Blanton who is off to a rough start this year then I dunno... Plus, since I was less than lukewarm on the Twins making Blanton an offer in the off-season, I definitely am rooting for an offensive breakout for the Twins today.

Wow, Brendan Harris starting at shortstop for the LAAoA. They must be in bad shape in their middle infield.

That's what I was thinking. How does a team with the Angel's payroll have Brendan Harris starting a game at SS?

That might even warrant a game thread appearance by Nick!

So we have ourselves a challenge tonight - can the Twins "big" FA pickup muster enough to make Brendan Harris sit down looking? Forget hypotheticals with Hicks, we've got a real life showdown of ineptitude to witness tonight!

After Pujols and Hamilton... They only have money left for cheaper backup options.

[FONT="] A man went skydiving for the first time, and after five seconds in the air he pulled the ripcord. Nothing happened. He tried again. Still nothing. He started to panic, but remembered his backup chute and pulled that cord. Nothing happened. Suddenly, he looked down and saw a man going up! Just as the other guy passed by, the skydiver yelled, “Hey, do you know anything about skydiving?” The other guy yelled back, “Heck no! Do you know anything about catching fly balls hit off of Kevin Correia?” [/FONT]

There will be more if the Twins keep falling behind in the early innings and never rallying.

Lemme guess, your uncle died in a skydiving accident. My apologies. If only I could find that delete button...
