I haven't even watched the highlights of last night's game. I think it's better this way. Moving on.

Kyle "Son of Doug" Drabek, as you may tell by the above picture, was part of the Roy Halladay deal the Blue Jays struck with the Phillies. As Joe C. notes, he no-hit your New Britain Rock Cats last July, and his fastball averages out at just under 94 mph.


Francisco Liriano

#47 / Pitcher / Minnesota Twins

6-2

Thank god we went with the veteran instead of the best pitcher as the Opening Day starter, otherwise things might've really gotten out of hand.

Joe C. has the Twins lineup:

1. Denard Span, CF
2. Tsuyoshi Nishioka, 2B
3. Joe Mauer, C
4. Justin Morneau, 1B
5. Delmon Young, LF
6. Jim Thome, DH
7. Michael Cuddyer, RF
8. Danny Valencia, 3B
9. Alexi Casilla, SS

Thome spells Jason Kubel's beard, Mauer catches a day game after a night game.

Notes:

  • Unless you're a boxer's corner guy, YOU DON'T THROW TOWELS. Canadians are weird.
  • Heard this: the Twins have a chance to be the first team in major league history to start the season with a loss and win their remaining 161 games. This would also put them in the driver's seat for home field advantage in the American League playoffs.
  • Baseball's on TV at noon, people. Enjoy it.
