6/7 Game Thread: Minnesota Twins @ Seattle Mariners

New, 64 comments

Boof's due for a good start.  Hey, if it's not a quality start...he might get sent down!

Here's MLB.com's preview of tonight's game.  Do me a favor and check out the "player to watch" section.  I'm not even going to....no, I am.  JUAN CASTRO is the player to watch?  Are you serious?  Nobody questions Castro's glove, and his bat hasn't been bad either, insists Justice B. Hill.  Oh, Justice...my dear, sweet Justice...

Hill's correct when it's pointed out that Castro's place in the order could be a tablesetter for the top of the lineup, but the "punch" we're looking for can't and won't come from Castro.  Okay, I'm done now.  Onto the lineups...
