Early season baseball screws up my Twins watching. Games start at noon or 1 or in this case 3pm because spring temperatures make it not ideal for playing baseball or watching baseball in the stands. And because of these early starts, I only can catch an inning or two on my lunch break and see the score when I get home.
Well this year, I haven't missed much. The most exciting Twins related thing to happen was Bert Blyleven taking to Twitter and offering his insights on Detroit. That is not a good thing.
The Twins move on to Chicago to take on the White Sox. Both teams are 0-3.
Tommy Milone will throw for the Local 9. The current White Sox roster has a .250/.284/.391/.674 career slash line against him (67 plate apps). Chicago will throw out Hector Noesi. I would be willing to wager a lot of money that the Twins score more than 1 run this series.

Rochester at Buffalo was rained out. Jose Berrios pitches for Chattanooga tonight.
I always thought the day games at the beginning of the season were to increase the chances of avoiding rainouts or delays that go to the wee hours of the morning.
Can't it be both?
Now we will really find out who is the team that sucks.
The resistible force versus the movable object.
I love this so much. I want a banner.
Seems it is the White Sox.
A run! In the first inning! Our first lead of the season!
Is that allowed?
Mauer scored one of the runs and drove in the other. #pansy
It's clearly Hunter's influence. Mauer shouldn't get any credit.
Come on, Milone. Justify my faith in you. Make this lead stand up for at least one inning.
He did it! Now let's get another run!
Wait.. what? That's allowed?
Noesi going for the blackout card: walk, strikeout, balk, WP, HBP, hit, run, earned run
Okay, sure, Hunter struck out with the bases loaded, but at least he did it in a way that showed veteranny leadership. The complete opposite of that wimp Mauer, who took a walk rather than swing and try to drive in the runs.
This is absolutely perfect.
A second shut-down inning from Tommy-gun Milone!
We lead for one-third of the game!
I prefer this year's Milone model.
Another thing I didn't know was allowed--the Twins getting more than one base on a hit.
Torii, Torii, he's our man, if he can't do it--well, somebody else maybe could, but it'd really help if he did it here.
I guess we'll see whether somebody else can.
Mauer OBP: .500
Hunter OBP: .071
Again, Mauer just won't swing the bat. He keeps selfishly taking walks and leaving those runners for someone else to drive in.
That jerk is teaching those things to Plouffe, too.
or maybe he knows he's a pansy singles hitter and figured it would be better to let someone else do the heavy lifting?
Big walk, cya Noesi.
Pale Hosers, *Simpsons haw haw*!
The old Dazzle Special!
I was wrong about Rochester at Buffalo being rained out. It actually reads "Postponed: wind". That's a new one on me.
What's the record for most times leaving the bases loaded in one game?
article from a couple years ago
Aw man, I missed two runs.
Or you could say we missed four runs...
Are players allowed to run all the way around the bases all at once?
Only against the White Sox.
Is it allowed to hit the ball over the fencing in the outfield?
Dazzle: Dozer not likely to build on his homers from last year.
Mauer is such a nice guy, getting on 4 times so far today giving Torii all these RBII opportunities.
Olivaesque AB there by Mike-Jo.
Hey, if anyone knows a quick way to find the video link that was shared a week or two ago about Rod Carew's 3000'th hit, I wanted to send over to the FIL.
here you go
Awesome, you rock!
I'll tell him it came from a fellow A.L.'er.
Tommy, can you hear me? You're doing awesome.
Blyleven: Let him finish.
Me: Perkins could probably use some work.
Arcia looked safe to me.
Did he slide off the bag?
I thought he was safe, too, but the only replay we saw was inconclusive, so if that's all there was it was a good decision not challenge.
IBB for Suzuki. Odd.
I guess "matchups", but yeah, its Kurt Suzuki.
The last time he was IBB'd was in 2013 when he was with Washington. He batted 8th, in front of the pitcher.
Now Arcia has been IBB in front of Suzuki twice.
I like Abreu leading off with a three-run lead.
The Twins have left 12 men on base. They had only 17 base runners in Detroit.
Hopefully this will come out right when mailed.
Perusing rosters to fix my fantasy lineup and noticed this:
Los Angeles Angels
No Player Pos Bat Thw Ht Wt Age Exp Pob Salary
22 Drew Butera C/P/1B R R 6' 1" 200 31 5 Evansville, Indiana $987,500
Sorry, it condensed all my spacing.
You can try using
<pre>. That is for preformatted text.
After _elmon and Willingham, Arcia is looking pretty good in left.
now Hunter gets a hit.
9 walks for the Twins today.
Have to consider who was pitching, but that bothers me not at all.
but yeah, a very good sign for the locals.
Way to ruin the save situation TORII. jeeze
Not for Duensing.
Please tell me Torii ran through a stop sign on that play.
South Side iinsurance.
Woo-hoo! A blowout!
could it be an 8 run inning?
A multi-run inning. Is that allowed?
Load the bases, please. I want ii to get to double-digit LOBs today.
Twins have now matched the White Sox in total runs scored this season.
WOOOO DOUBLE PLAY!
I'm on radio, but that's really bad baserunning to get thrown out at the plate when you're down by six.
Yep. It was not a deep ball at all.
The onyl thing is Eaton is fast and Escobar was running back to the play. but had enough time to settle under the ball and get a good throw to home.
listening to the ChiSox squawkers -- they are not arguing.
Not in last place! Puppies!!!!!1111one1111!!!!
It's kind of amazing, except not, that Atteberry and Dazzle went on and on about Hunter's ninth-inning baserunning on the post-game show and didn't say a word about all the men he left on base.
Your 2015 Twiins!
that's the Face of Leadership.
If you're interested in more baseball, Chattanooga, with Jose Berrios pitching, is just about to start its game with Montgomery. The audio is available for free at milb.com.
And by the way, we're still on track for 159-3!
