Another Monday, another opening day. Today's home opener will inaugurate the fifth season of MLB play at Target Field. I'll be behind home plate somewhere as a guest of a season ticket holder. I'm looking forward to a
So where do the Twins stand? After starting the season with two series on the road in Chicago and Cleveland (and really, who doesn't want to play outdoor baseball in the Rust Belt in early April), the Twins find themselves sporting a .500 record. That seems to be a much better start than we've endured the past couple of years, but I'm not going to check the records to make sure. That's just asking for depression to set in.
Today the Twins send Kevin Correia to the mound while the A's counter with Scott Kazmir (yes, another year of hearing Bert mispronounce a simple name). Let's hope the Twins can ride the Colabello gravy train to one more win. Play ball!

Twins baserunners hopefully active -- we'll see!
Kubel in left and Colabello in right. Oof. Pinto is in the lineup, but of course Suzuki is catching.
Herrmann called up, so third catcher.
Fans with healthy cheering from hometown fans, the boos no doubt drowned out by Twayn's hearty hoorahs
Anyone know what the "S^2C" patch on the A's uniform is for?
That sounds like that Stand Up 2 Cancer jazz.
Yep. Should be on the Twins uni today, too
Pretty cool how they recognized the cancer battle between innings.
Wait, is it the 2nd Inning already?!?
Nice of Correia to thow BP for the A's. When does he start pitching for real?
There's your new outfielder. Colabello can do it all!
Can't believe we let Kazmir off the hook.
Catch and release.
First day of vacation, beautiful week of weather coming, played some catch with the boy and watching the home opener. Not a bad day.
2 or 3 of those "gappers" are caught if we have some speed in right.
Pitch to smash.
Nice of The Dude not to waste any hits last year.
He's been hitting pretty well to start after a terrible year playing elsewhere. He obviously saved them up for his return to the Twins.
I understand what you're saying, I just don't understand what you said.
All hitless Twins today are batting under .400, and every Twin getting a hit today is batting over .400 or a Hicks
Clever of Correia to start the inning by killing the rally.
Well, they only scored one, right?
Gladden talking about how hard it is for the Twin hitters to see the ball with the shadows. I am confused. Do the shadows change when the A's are at the plate?
Should have put a roof on the place.
Retractable, so we can move it every 1/2 inning.
Are you still burning up the road by my place each week boss? You should stop and see me sometime. Not this week though... vacation.
I am. I'll be blowing past on Wednesday afternoon.
I will be in Cloud town that day. Interesting drive huh?
By the time I get home, all the stress of the day is worked out. And then some.
Punto's appearance was probably the loudest the crowd got. The dude behind me tried to explain to his friend why Twins fans are great - you see they cheer all the former players - except AJ Pierzynski because he's a douche.
I must not be a good Twins fan. Pierzynski's about the only one I go out of my way to cheer...usually just to shut up the douche's around me.
I am here. Let the sucking stop.
Not until deduno reads a rule book.
I kind of miss it when the Twins were playing other AL Central clubs.
2 runs on one hit, an HBP, a balk, and a SF.
Isn't that how the Twins do it?
Small sample size and everything, but coming into today:
One wonders if Gardenhire can survive a fourth 95-loss season.
You mean him physically, or his job? Both might be tough calls
Coming into today, Twins' hitters first in OBP and pitches per PA. Not going to be too many quick games this year.
