Going to take some getting used to seeing the Twins wearing red jerseys.

Are the red jerseys going to carry over into the regular season, or is this just a ST thing?

Think the red "Minnesota" script jerseys are this year's road batting practice jerseys. They wear them as their road uniform in ST.

I don't really like the red ones, but sure like seeing green grass and no snow:)

Yeah ... I was like 'Wait ... do I have the right game?' 'Oh yeah ...'
I like them, though.

3 Ks for the Twins 2nd. That was less than impressive.

Yeah, I've liked several of the Hughes curveballs. Better find some command of the fastball, though.

Kepler lead off single and driven home by a home run from Buxton. Back to the Future, Twins fans.

I'd like to say I saw that Kepler/Buxton combination a lot in Cedar Rapids last year... but they were on the Kernels roster together for a grand total of 4 games.

Maybe years from now, there will be tons of Twins/Kernels fans who will tell people they watched Buxton and Kepler play together at Vets stadium in CR. They will all be lying.

The 4 games they were both with the Kernels were played in Appleton against the Timber Rattlers. I made a good, last minute, decision that weekend to drive up and watch most of that series, as Buxton was told of his promotion on the bus ride back to CR.
