Know Thine Enemy: Crawfish Boxes

Pre-game notes

  • Kubel is out and Morales is in, but he's not in the lineup yet.
  • Mauer has the day off. He probably needs more than one.
  • The Twins are running out their "hey look at who we can play where" team, with two thirds of the outfield comprised of infielders. Luckily, they both look okay out there.
  • Deduno's 3.83 ERA is the same mark he posted in 2013, although it's 4.36 as a starter.
  • Collin McHugh is a 26-year old right-hander who is actually having a really good season. Houston picked him off of waivers in December. So he's been a great surprise.
