In an all-too-rare occurrence, the Twins are rolling and playing a team that is worse than them. Sun shining, hay making, etc.

He's coming off his first rough outing of the season. I still like him. I bet we'd be friends if we hung out.

Notes:

  • Ron Gardenhire was on with Reusse & Mackey this afternoon on 1500ESPN, and said that Joe Mauer was unlikely to play or be available to pinch-hit this evening. He is not in the lineup, nor is Denard Span. Chris Parmelee returns and is playing at first. (UPDATE: per multiple outlets, Span is out with the flu; Mauer WILL be available to pinch hit if needed.)
  • Per MLB.com, Alfonso Soriano has faced P.J. Walters five times in his career, and has struck out each time.

Enjoy the game, everybody.
