Know Thine Enemy: The Good Phight


Today's game sends the Twins to Bright House Field to take on the Philadelphia Phillies and Roy Halladay (easily fischean's favorite current MLB pitcher...). Jason Marquis will start throwing for the Twins, and Denard Span, Tsuyoshi Nishioka, and Justin Morneau will all return to the lineup today. I'm not sure if we'll see Jim Thome later on in the game, but I sure wouldn't mind that happening. Tyler Mason (@FSNTylerMason) posted a video of Thome talking about his time here in Minnesota. Warning: might make you miss the guy more than you intended.
