Tonight Kevin Correia is facing the White Sox, which happens to be the only MLB team he has never pitched against. So congrats, Kevin, on reaching that pretty much meaningless milestone.

What can we expect from Kevin tonight? As most Twins fans begrudgingly admit, Correia did a fabulous job in April, but he's historically had pretty great Aprils and it starts to go down hill from there. Hopefully history won't repeat itself, but Kevin's first two starts in May have followed the pattern so far. Correia gave up 4 earned runs on 6 hits over 5 innings against the Indians May 4th, and 3 earned runs on 9 hits over 5.1 innings on May 9th.

On the other hand, look at the White Sox lineup.

Jake Peavy already faced the Twins once this year back on April 20th, and he did a pretty good job, pitching 7 innings with only 6 hits and one earned run. His last start against the Mets went pretty well too, going a slightly fewer 6.2 innings also with only 1 earned run. Peavy also totally owns Josh Willingham, who is only 1 for 18 lifetime against Jake.

On the other hand, this isn't the same Twins team as the one back on April 20th, now that Aaron Hicks is a superstar who is going to hit at least two dingers every game for the rest of the year. Yes--that is a call.
