Kyle Gibson and the Twins take on Carlos Carrasco and the Clevelanders. Carrasco has, to this point, seemed like the type of pitcher that the Twins could have success against (a righty who doesn't strike out a ton of people and a ground ball pitcher who seems let the ball find the seats with regularity). Meanwhile, Kyle Gibson's had a rough start to his major league career, but that all ends now, I'm sure.
Your starting lineups:
Correia vs. Paulino.
Your overhauled lineup has Suzuki batting seventh, and hey look, Kubel's cleaning up! I'm happy to see him. Sue me.
This is another one I'll have to try to catch at work, so bring it home, boys.
Opening Day. Just remember what A. Bartlett Giamatti said. This game is meant to break your heart.
Today the Minnesota Twins baseball club will challenge the Chicago White Sox team to commence the 2014 Major League Baseball regular season. Leave us not have illusions about what the Twins can reasonably pull off this year, but leave us neither let that temper our enjoyment of the game and the team we love.
Today the Twins send Ricky Nolasco to the mound as their Opening Day starter. The White Sox counter with Chris Sale. Both pitchers enter the season undefeated, so it should be an evenly matched contest.
