So what was everyone's favorite game one moment? Mine was when I napped through it.

Mine was when I closed the video feed while it was 0-0 in the first.

I like the Twins here. I usually only do 1 game per day, but had to do 2 today. Scaled it back a bit. $50 on Twins.

I'm a little upset to not see Colabello in the lineup. What's the point of calling him up if you aren't going to use him? He got a pinch hit opportunity in the first game but someone else could have done that.

Sano, Rosario, and Morales promoted to AA, in case anyone doesn't check the minor league boards.

I was at the game--so I couldn't nap--lots of Twins fans there. My favorite moment probably was the play Parmalee made off the wall on the double. Reminded me of Cuddyer. I also liked when the Twins nabbed the guy at home (surprised Doumit held on to the ball).

First time seeing Twins live in a couple of years--very unimpressed--middle infield defense is weak...

Florimon has as many home runs to right in TF now as Mauer does.

That was quite the throw by Hicks, no Yasiel Puig though.

I know there's sometimes a question about the actual age of some hispanic ballplayers, but I think that's unlikely.

Deduno is killing me. Should have stayed disciplined and not played this game. SMH
