Grapefruit Frontrunners!

Whoa! 4-0! Way to go guys!

Ok, so we got Crede Right? Well, he better watch out because Buscher is on FIRE right now! (Wait, when isn't he?)

Well, we got lots of run support today from Young (3 for 3, 2 RBIs) and Gomez (HR), but also won the game due to a great show from the bullpen....and Liriano, of course.

Too bad that Mauer is not healthy enough to participate in this fun. And Turns out Boofie won't be able to participate at all. He will just have to hang out with Neshek this season.

Tomorrow we play the Sox again. AND it's Slowey's starting day!! :)

Off to a great start

Here we go again! Baseball season is upon us.

We are officially 2-0 in the Grapefruit league and are to face the Yanks tomorrow afternoon with Baker on the hill.

Personally, I really like when the Roster Invitees get to play and do really well. It shows them just what they are up for when they reach the Big Leagues. In today's game vs. the Reds, Peterson (an invitee) hit a grand slam. That is the kind of stuff that I think is really cool. Oh, and Bush Baby hit a home run too :)

I am really enjoying the season so far. Slowey's start is coming up, and I am looking forward to that!

Welcome to Minnesota, Joe!

Ah finally. Just what we needed: a third baseman that can hit with power. We have been waiting many years for this, people!

Anyway...Joe Crede? You will like the Twins WAY better than the White Sox. And, now we won't have to worry about you playing against us (and doing very well), we will just worry about your health, now that you are with US! And, thanks for having a small pricetag too ;)

So I heard this news on Fox 9 Last night (even though the Twins website said they were interested in him before). I also heard from Jim Rich that this is a possible lineup/position roster for opening day:

~Span (LF)
~Casilla (2B)
~Mauer (C)
~Morneau (1B)
~Kubel (DH)
~Crede (3B)
~Cuddyer (RF)
~Gomez (CF)

As far as starting piching? Of course I would say Slowey, but there are many decisions that Gardee will have to make.

One other thing Jim Rich Said: "[With the signing of Crede] the Twins are now looked at as the most likely leader of the Central Division"

Now doesn't that just make your day? :)

Twins 2009 Commercial

Ah, now that was a good commercial. I was so excited to see it, that I was hoping the 3rd quarter to be over really quick.

My favorite part of the commercial was obviously the Slowey part (even though he didn't do much of anything except be Baker's (who would have guessed?) passenger). But did you see him do the sly hat flip? Awesome.

One thing I didn't get is why Gomez and Casilla weren't in the same truck. I mean come on, It's not SPAN and Casilla, it's GOMEZ and Casilla. (No offense Span...)

Also, How does one get to be in a commercial? I was so jealous of the fan truck. I wanted to be in the truck :(

Pitchers report in 9 days! I just cannot wait until it is Baseball season again!!
