This is the first time the Twins have faced Colon since they defeated him in 2009 when he was with the White Sox.  He looked absolutely cooked at that time.  Now he's having a late-career surge while looking like a professional bowler who has really let himself go.  OK, then.

We'll be back with your starting lineups early this evening.  It's a late game, as you may be aware.
