Today and tomorrow, our Minnesota Twins, will be meeting up with the Tampa Bay Rays for what feels like the 40th time this Spring. Do we play the Rays this many times every year? Or does it seem like a lot to me because I've written like 4 of the game threads? Either way, the Twins are scoring runs in bunches. It's a trend that I think will continue today. I expect no less than 18 runs from the Twins today. Anything less will, of course be blamed on Joe Mauer, who isn't playing today. I suspect because Gardy is trying to get Doumit sometime behind the plate, and Morneau is DHing again. If there was anything to worry about, somebody would've fired it through Twitter already. Lineups after the jump.
