Let’s game thread it up in the sun on a bun with some fun, but not a ton.

Hello. I bet you didn’t think something like this would pop up today, did you? Well it did, and now since you opened this page, you’re obligated to stick here for eternity and comment all the time or you’ll have face the duo of Pavstache and Sweet Drew behind the new Aldi in your town. Or something like that.

Your favorite team, the Minnesota Twins, will be starting recently-optioned Lewis Thorpe. The southpaw has been doing quite well this spring, posting a 2.35 ERA/FIP is not calculated by BRef for sping, sorry, and allowing only one homer and two walks while striking out eight. We may see him in major-league threads again in 2021.

The Tampa Bay Rays will counter with Tyler Glasnow. He has pitched to a 5.59 ERA in 9.2 innings of work. He’s allowed a pair of homers, six earned runs, and has a K/BB ratio of 3.40 (17 divided by five). I believe he’s locked into the rotation for the Rays this season.

The lineups are below in Twitter format:

Have fun, and save some potato salad for me! (No promises on a game recap from me.)
