Some corporate wizards told this guy he shouldn’t work for the Minnesota Twins anymore. Kind of a d**k move, IMO, but I’m not paid to run any baseball organization.

Bullpen day today! It’ll be Randy Dobnak’s fantastic mustache against Eric Skoglund, whose name sounds like he should be the most Scandinavian guy, ever. “My name is Eric, and my parents are from Vynneoresbrrgstromsen, and I think weird staring-eyeball-at-you fish sandwiches are a totally normal thing.” Alas, the dude’s from Florida. And, why not? Somebody has to be.

Today's Lineups

Whit Merrifield - RF Mitch Garver - C
Adalberto Mondesi - SS Jorge Polanco - SS
Jorge Soler - DH Nelson Cruz - DH

Enjoy, as always, the name Whit Merrifield, which utterly belongs in one of the Dickens novels you never finished reading.
