After dropping last night's game 11-4, the Twins look to bounce back today, by having Nick Blackburn (yay?) going against the Sox' Jake Peavy. Some might say this is a somewhat unfair matchup, but some clearly don't know the power of the Beard. Or...something. Maybe be glad you have to work during today's game.

For Minnesota:

Nick Blackburn

#53 / Pitcher / Minnesota Twins

6-4
