Cardinals @ Twins

First pitch: 5:10 CDT


Radio: Twins Radio Network

First of all: the sun is out at my Sherburne County bunker, so that hopefully means the rain over the metro area will clear out by the first pitch.  Also, as you've no doubt heard by now, the bullpen's closer-by-committee approach has been kicked to the curb before the regular season has even begun.  Jon Rauch is your new closer.

Lineups courtesy of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:


1. Span, CF

2. Hudson, 2B

3. Mauer, C

4. Tyner, 1B (just kidding, it's Morneau)

5. Cuddyer, RF

6. Kubel, DH

7. Young, LF

8. Hardy, SS

9. Punto, 3B

Carl Pavano is your starting pitcher.


1. Schumaker, 2B

Kyle Lohse, who I have never liked, will start for the Redbirds.

Enjoy the outdoor baseball game, everyone.
