I'm not entirely sure if the rain will hold off but we'll see. Hopefully there aren't any delays because I'm not sure I can stomach another 4-hour game.
The Twins are hopefully transitioning into their younger lineup for the rest of the season with Aaron Hicks in center field, pushing Danny Santana to shortstop and Eduardo Escobar into a utility role. We also get to see Josmil Pinto behind the plate in place of Kurt Suzuki.
Paul Konerko is being honored before the game, sort of like the ceremonies that were given to Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera recently. The Twins did a good job with gifts for Jeter and Rivera, so while I'm not interested in the actual ceremony, I am curious to see what he receives from the Twins.
