Pre-Game Notes

  • Ervin Santana's debut is a big game. Not only is it against his most recent club prior to the Twins, but the Twins will either leave Kansas City by taking three of four games...or a series split. Getting out of Kauffman with a series win would be huge for Minnesota right now.
  • Did you see our roster notes catch-up? There've been a flurry of moves since Friday.
  • Let's just talk about how much I love the fact that Miguel Sano and Eddie Rosario are batting fifth and sixth respectively. Outstanding.
  • Yesterday was the fourth of July. Happy successful colonial insurrection anniversary, everyone!
  • SMELL BASEBALL.
