GameChat – Exhibition – Cardinals @ Twins

I haven’t quite figured out where Babs copies the lineups with links from, so for the moment, lineups grabbed from Kelly’s Corner. Come join me/us in the GameChat channel!

Here’s the chart!

St. Louis @ Minnesota
Schumaker, 2B   Span, CF
Ryan, Br, SS   Hudson, O, 2B
Pujols, 1B   Mauer, C
Holliday, LF   Morneau, 1B
Rasmus, CF   Cuddyer, RF
Ludwick, RF   Kubel, DH
Lopez, F, DH   Young, D, LF
Freese, 3B   Hardy, SS
Pagnozzi, C   Punto, 3B
Lohse, P   Pavano, P
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
St. Louis 0 0 0 3 0 0 0 5 0 8 13 2
Minnesota 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 2 0 4 4 1

But the boxscore just really can’t accurately describe what it was like for those of us here watching the game from the live chat.  From Span kicking tail and getting the first  HR in Target Field, seeing random friends enjoying the amenities, or even seeing Jacque Jones back in Minnesota!!  What a fantastic day for baseball in this state!

Because it wasn’t enough for Span to have the first triple at Target Field, he also had to smash the first home run.


It’s always nice to see someone you know, Seth Stohs, on TV. Eating a cheese-covered nacho chip.


It was great to see that the fans at the ballpark remember Jacque Jones fondly too.


Spring Training Photo Montage!

Thanks to the contributions of several viewers, we have a great collection of photos from Spring Training to celebrate the end of Grape Fruit League play.  I had to go through more than 250 pictures to grab the ones  I really liked – and that was the “favorites” of the submitters already.  From what I have been told, I think it’s entirely possible that nearly 5000 pictures were taken in FL by the folk who sent me photos.  I really hope you enjoy the slideshows.

Here’s the Major Leagues!

My only regret seems to come from the fact that my fellow Twins fans don’t seem to have near the appreciation (facination? obsession?) with JJ Hardy that I have – WHERE ARE THE HOTTY PICS??  *sigh*

Here’s the Minor League shots so you have something to look forward to! You might see some of them sooner rather than later.

Special thanks to JimCrikket, Corey Sauer, Patty Roth Liming, and Jan McGuire!
