First Pitch: 9:10 PM Central

TV: FSNO

Radio: GO 96.2, TIBN

Know Thine Enemy: True Blue LA

Tonight the Twins start a pivotal series away against the Dodgers who come into the game with the best record in baseball. The Twins meanwhile sit 2.5 games behind the Indians and a game behind the Royals in the Central as the trade deadline soon approaches.

As many fans also know tonight might possibly be the last start for Bartolo Colon in a Twins uniform and maybe even his career depending on how he performs. Especially now considering the Twins made a trade today bringing in SP Jamie Garcia from the Braves who is basically guaranteed a spot in the rotation. Much speculation was made about El 'Big Sexy' Gato hanging up his cleats prior to the trade but according to Colon himself he wants to keep pitching and help the Twins win some ballgames.

Also....WE GET TO SEE BARTOLO COLON BAT IN A TWINS UNIFORM !!! (hopefully)

Will Colon continue pitching for the Twins? Or will he retire to that big sexy hammock in the sky? Find out tonight!

(actually he will probably retire to the Bartolo Colon Baseball Academy in his hometown in the Dominican Republic, which is pretty cool btw)
