Hey Guys! More Baseball! Twins vs. Rays!

New, 102 comments

First Pitch: 12:05pm CDT

Radio: 1500 ESPN
Know Thine Enemy: DRays Bay

The Twins are playing the Rays. It’ll Carl Pavano against James Shields. Who is probably the least interesting of Tampa Bay's starters. David Price was hurt by his towel, Jeff Niemann has a fun name. Matt Moore is the best pitching prospect in baseball, Jeremey Hellickson was the Rookie of The Year. If the Tampa Bay Rays starting rotation was the Bluth family, James Shields would be Annyong.

Pavano has pitched 2 games so far, totalling 5 innings, and he's given up 3 earned runs. Price hasn't given up a run in 3 innings. Shields has just thrown 2 innings of perfect baseball. Maybe he can end up with a composite perfect game this spring. That'd be cool. Right? I really wish there was more to talk about, but there really isn't.

Also: Jim Thome is playing first base today for the Phillies in preparation of playing first base while Ryan Howard is on the mend.
