How much does it really matter at this point that only one potential starter for the Twins, Scott Diamond, has given up a run so far this ST? Is that a good sign? Or are pitchers usually ahead of hitters this early on?

Can you listen to these games online? I tried a couple local stations but they must block it.

mlb.com is carrying it if you have an account

1-0 Twins on a hit, popup lost in sun, walk, sac fly by Escobar.

Man, lots of balls lost in the sun so far. Hope that doesn't become much of an issue for the Twins.

Most block it, but not all. If you're adventurous, you can try the stations listed here:

Or you can just pony up for Gameday Audio...

You can get Gameday audio on your phone or tablet for about $3 through the At Bat App. Definitely worth every penny.

I thought pitchers were usually ahead of hitters this early in ST, but I could have that backwards. Either way, I don't think it matters much at this point. We'll see what happens when the season starts.

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

Just to clarify, that's $3 monthly, or $20 for the season. Definitely some cool bonuses to the app, though -- particularly MLB.tv Game of the Day.

MLB.tv is a great value too - $110-$130 for the season. No Twins video, though, if you are in the blackout area, unless you get a proxy....

It's pretty much meaningless. Pitchers are ahead of batters--they've been in camp longer--and are more focused on getting feel and improving location than on getting batters out. Plus, mostly they're pitching to minor leaguers. ANd some might be working on learning/improving a new pitch.

But I said "pretty much" because the lack of runs is at least a hint that what they're working on is coming along. And if the starters were getting shelled and pulled early, that would be discomfiting.
