Game 57: Cubs @ Twins

First Pitch: 7:10 CST
Radio: 1500 ESPN
Know Thine Enemy: Bleed Cubbie Blue

In an all-too-rare occurrence, the Twins are rolling and playing a team that is worse than them. Sun shining, hay making, etc.

P.J. Walters

#39 / Pitcher / Minnesota Twins





Mar 12, 1985

He's coming off his first rough outing of the season. I still like him. I bet we'd be friends if we hung out.

Travis Wood

#30 / Pitcher / Chicago Cubs





Feb 06, 1987

WIKIPEDIA FUN FACT: Wood's hometown of Bryant, Ark. purchases treated surface water from both Lake Maumelle and Lake Winona.

  • Ron Gardenhire was on with Reusse & Mackey this afternoon on 1500ESPN, and said that Joe Mauer was unlikely to play or be available to pinch-hit this evening. He is not in the lineup, nor is Denard Span. Chris Parmelee returns and is playing at first. (UPDATE: per multiple outlets, Span is out with the flu; Mauer WILL be available to pinch hit if needed.)
  • Per, Alfonso Soriano has faced P.J. Walters five times in his career, and has struck out each time.

Enjoy the game, everybody.
