A Game of Two Cities: It was the best of season starts, it was the worst of season starts, it was our winter of hope, it was our spring of despair...

The unstoppable Pale Hosers' force meets the very moveable Twins' object for game 3 of this series. Twins are hoping to avoid getting swept for the third straight time and win at least one game this month.




Johan "Call Me Ervin" Santana (2.25 ERA, 0-0) is also looking for his first notch in the "W" column this year, let's hope the Twins bats and bullpen help him out today.



Righty Mat "Hatter" Latos (0.00 ERA, 1-0) and his arm tats have had a good comeback so far this spring after being DFA'd by the Dodgers last year. He's 6' 6" tall with an "over-the-top" delivery, so you might've expected a lot of "downward plane" talk from Bert, but FSN isn't carrying the game so go over to Bert's house if you want that sort of thing.
